Following the successful edition of Crack Ya Ribs show on July 31 in Abuja, the Crack Ya Ribs team is now ready to storm London for this year’s edition of the show.
For the past six years, the London edition of Crack Ya Ribs has become one of the annual shows Nigerians residents in the UK look forward to every year because of its far above the ground entertaining value. The last edition which held at The Troxy was reported to be one of the most successful shows organized by a Nigerian in London.
To lend credence to that fact, one of Nigeria’s leading national careers, Arik Air has decided to support this year’s edition of Crack Ya Ribs in London. Arik Air will fly all Nigerian entertainers and other crew members that will be attending the show in London free. That aside, the airline will also be giving out return tickets to those present at the show through a raffle draw.
Entertainers billed to thrill at this year’s London Crack Ya Ribs are 9ice, Jesse Jagz, Dr Crime(Ghana), Ruff & Smooth(Ghana), Gordons, I Go Dye, Osama, Funny Bone, Dan D Humorous, Princess and Senator . On the wheel of steel are DJ Jimmy Jatt, DJ Abass and DJ Osa Jatt.
Speaking concerning this year’s London show, Julius Agwu said he will still continue in his tradition of dazzling his fans across the UK with world class entertainment shows. “Crack Ya Ribs has come to stay in London. You will be amazed with the number of mails we get every year from the great fans of Crack Ya Ribs show. So because of this and many other reasons, we can’t afford not to host Crack Ya Ribs in London every year. This year own will be the seventh edition and by God’s grace, we will still host more shows in London in the future”.
On why he has decided to feature Ghanaian artistes on this year’s edition, Julius said Crack Ya Ribs in London is no more for only Nigerians. “Over the years, we have to come to realize that not only Nigerians attend Crack Ya Ribs in London. Other African countries especially the West African countries who love Nigerian entertainers have been part of Crack Ya Ribs audience in the past. All we need to do as the organizer of the show is to start incorporating other artistes from West African countries into the show so that the fans of the show who are not Nigerians will start having sense of belonging. We have started with Ghanaian artistes this year and we hope to add more artistes from different countries next year. Crack Ya Ribs will definitely continue to grow in leaps and bounds”.
The show will take place on August 28 at Lighthouse Hall, 262 Camberwell Road, SE5 0DL London.
