Like you all already know, Sunday, May 27, 2012 is the D-day all
roads would be leading to the Harbour Point Event Centre, Wilmot Road,
Victoria Island. On that day by 2P.M, what has taken all of 35 years to
plan and to make happen would finally be seen by 800 guests only.
Those lucky enough to gather to watch 2 of the biggest musical
legends of our time play in the persons of Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey
and King Sunny Ade, would be
taken way back on the memory lane and
brought back to the present, as the 2 masters play together for the very
first time in 3 decades and a half and many are already anticipating a
magical night of unbelievable experience, expect music at its best,
expect the high and mighty, a convergence of the biggest who is who, it
would be extraordinary fun at its best. Already the Chief Commander and
his mentor- Fatai Rolling Dollar have been practising, and we can tell
you for free that what we heard was heavens made.
The main rehearsals would be starting on Tuesday, May 22, 2012,
where the dress rehearsals for the show proper would begin, Obey and KSA
would rehearse together, all the equipments would be tested, all the
technical details would be sorted out to the last T. A pre-event concert
would play out; to make sure the main event itself would be hitch free.
And guess what? The organisers have thought to add extra
spice(s), so that all who come would have extra value for money spent? A
segment of the concert would have 2 of the future legends of music in
the persons of the hottest deal right now- Wizkid and the Alapomeji King
himself 9ICE doing duets with the 2 Legends. It would be something to
behold by all, a blend of the old with the new, it’s most definite that
every one’s cup of fun would be filled to the brim and over-flowing.
Tickets (Single tickets, family tables of 8 and corporate tables
of 8) are presently going like hot cakes; people are calling to buy
tickets from as far as Yola, Adamawa State. So if you haven’t bought
yours yet, you had better do so now. IT’S ALREADY A COUNTDOWN.
