She would be complemented by her colleagues and friends – (Tuface, eLDee, Sound Sultan, Kel, Djinee, DJ Zeez and X.O Senavoe and there might be some surprise artistes) are billed for the event.
An excited Lami revealed her joy at being able to connect with her fans who she feels haven’t seen much of her since her debut in the Nigerian music industry almost two years ago. “I want to use the opportunity to appreciate my friends and fans who have stuck with me since I arrived on the scene. I haven’t been very much available to them because of so many commitments but they have enjoyed my music and made me feel loved and I just want to use this opportunity to express my gratitude to them.”
Speaking further on the performances of the evening, Lami, promised that guests are set to experience live music of a different brand. “All the songs would be delivered in a special way different from the way they appeared on the CD so that the guests can feel them in a different way while I introduce them to some of the songs on the forthcoming album,” she said.
