It’s amazing how time does fly.
On Saturday, September 15, 2012, Sound Sultan, probably the most slept on musical genius to come out of Nigeria, celebrated his 12years musical career and boy, was it a celebration!
In a near masterpiece, the songwriter/singer/performer/(add whatever else here….) brought together all things artful and entertaining; from the set (Oh! did we mention it was done at the Harbour Point in Victoria Island, Lagos) to the choreography to his medley of hits to our culture to theatrical performances to madt collaborations to sexy orobos
The show which was hosted by Toolz, IK Osakioduwa & Yaw, had in attendance, some of the biggest names in the Nigerian entertainment industry which included 2Face, Femi Kuti, Mode 9ine, MI, eLDee, Lami, Omotola, Kate Henshaw, Tiwa Savage, Kefee, Timaya, Omawumi, Ice Prince, Dr Sid, Ikechukwu and Iyanya.
Several big names out to perform with him on stage – Afrobeat’s icon – Femi Kuti; 2Face – the crowd kept singing Ole, ole, ole as they performed “Bush Meat” together; M.I with consciously correct song “2010”; and a beautiful drama piece centered around a traditional wedding starring the Sultan of Sound, Tiwa Savage as his lovely bride-to-be, Kofi as the Wedding’s MC and 9ice & Adewale Ayuba as the wedding (and concert) performers.
It was truly a journey through the musical career of a Sultan that should forever linger in the memories of everyone who attended the show.
For those of you who missed it, hope the photos Dare Koleaje (360d fotography) captured for 360nobs will help ease the sadness of missing probably the best musical concert to done in 2012.
