Fun seekers and lovers of contemporary R&B, hip-hop and soul music were last Friday treated to an unforgettable night of music and dance when American Queen of ‘Hip-hop soul’, Mary J. Blige stormed Lagos for the Etisalat and Baileys’ sponsored ‘Sisters with Soul’ concert at the Expo Centre of Eko Hotel, Victoria Island. It was indeed, an experience that cannot be forgotten in a hurry, as fans were yelling for more when the America music idol mounted the stage.

 

 

Clad in a mid-riff baring turtle neck top, leather shorts and knee-length gladiator heels, the multiple award winner and multi-platinum selling artiste took the audience back in time, dolling out her most loved songs from the 90s up until her most recent releases.

The climax of the show could be said to be when Mary J. Blige while thanking the fans, spotted Tiwa Savage in the crown and invited her to the stage to perform. Tiwa after greeting the singer and her crew, did a short christian song were she thanked God for everything. She also defined Mary J. Blige as her idol and model who contributed in making her what she is today. She said she used to perform with Mary back then in USA.

 

Speaking at the concert, Mr. Felix Enwemadu, General Manager, Diageo Brands Nigeria, said Mary J. Blige is a highly respected singer who represents the spec for Baileys target consumers, the stylish and trendy woman.

 

Also excited was the Chief Commercial Officer of Etisalat Nigeria, Mr. Matthew Willsher, who expressed the brand’s delight being associated with the show. “It is exciting for us as a company to be part of the ‘Sisters with Soul’ concert that featured for the first time in Lagos, Nigeria Mary J.Blige alongside other talented female artistes in the country.

Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Explodes Over #LekkiMassacre Of #EndSARS Protesters

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has condemned the attack on peaceful #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.

It was reported earlier that soldiers of the Nigerian Army invaded a peaceful protest at Lekki toll gate on Tuesday evening.

Reacting to the attack on the peaceful protesters in Lagos in a tweet, Kanu, a director of Radio Biafra, said it is “shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim” President Muhammadu Buhari “using the Army to kill unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos” on a “Southern soil”.

The apparently furious IPOB leader wondered if “Southern Christian President” would ever “contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in Kano”, northern Nigeria.

Kanu tweeted: It’s shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim @NGRPresident using the Army to KILL unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos, a Southern soil? Would a Southern Christian President ever contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in KANO?”
