The Abuja edition of Star Music The Trek 2016, may have come and gone, but its memories will linger in the minds of the residents of the capital city.
The concert, which took place last Saturday at the Old Parade ground, was a music feast complete with the biggest Nigerian artistes that performed to an energetic crowd. Defying the heavy rain which descended as the concert was about to get underway, the revellers were in for a night of unstoppable fun.
The concert saw headline act Davido sharing the stage with other A-listers like MI, Ice Prince, Falz and Darey, who made his debut performance at Star Music The Trek concert.
Hosted by Gbenga Adeyinka, the night started with top mixes from DJ Neptune and DJ Big N before Falz opened with his famed ‘Falz faux accent’ that sent the crowd reeling with laughter.
One after the other, the artistes came out to give account of themselves. M.I had one of the best sets of the night as he performed with a fan, Archie, who he spotted from the crowd. They performed a few throwback classic hits together. Another lucky fan, Young Incredible, got on stage with M.I as he dazzled and won a year’s studio recording deal with Chocolate City.
In typical Davido style, the self-titled ‘Omo Baba Olowo’ (OBO) switched beats for the night. The Sony Music-signed-pop star stepped on stage with his hype man, Special Ed, and the teeming Abuja concert crowd couldn’t get enough from him.
The Trek continues at Calabar, Cross River on October 22.
