Back by popular demand is the live artiste showcase that has brought people like Sound Sultan, Ill Bliss, Eva, Pope, Seyi Shay, Banky W, M.I, Yemi Alade, Aramide, Falz and more, closer to their fans than ever.
“We took a break to reinforce all our efforts to promote good music and we are thrilled to be back! It is We are committed to promoting quality performances to fans and the industry”, Osagie Osarenkhoe, the Events and Music coordinator said in a statement.

One Mic Naija is a live music show hosted by rappers, Kel and Kunle ‘KB’ Bello (formerly of Trybesman), who will now be joined by Korebrown of Top Radio 90.9 as the host for the audience freestyle competition. The audience freestyle competition is one of the high points of the show, with winners going home with gifts and prizes like free productions and free online promotions.
Korebrown first anchored the audience session at the last One Mic Naija which held at Swe Bar, and he said, “I am excited to be a part of this edition of One Mic Naija and i love the connection with the audience so everyone is in for a thrill”.

Also new is the venue as One Mic Naija now holds at the scenic and exclusive Ember Creek on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi. Events and Logistics coordinator of One Mic Naija, Miss Moyo Shomade says, “The ambience at Ember creek is just the right vibe for our show as it is scenic, serene and accessible from any point”.

Not everything has changed though. As mentioned earlier, Kel and Kunle KB Bello return as the crazy hosts the audience have grown used to. The live band is also, still the same. “It is important for us to keep One Mic Naija as a live show because the fun starts from the band rehearsals, and runs right though to the day of the show itself” Kel said in the statement.
The six artistes of each One Mic Naija show usually rehearse with the One Mic Naija band several times before the show.
This edition is tagged the ‘Welcome Back’ edition and has Vector as headliner. “Our Welcome Back edition has one of our favourite headliners from previous editions”, Tosyn Bucknor, Event and Media Coordinator mentions. “He had a great set the last time he headlined and with all the recent accolades he has been getting plus, new music, we thought it would be great to have a welcome back edition with him”.

Also performing are Gata’n Arewa himself, Morell, Timix of “Kowole” fame, Fefe, one of the youngest freshest voices in Naija pop, Psondi, the winner of Top Radio 90.9’s Next Top Talent Season 3 competition, and Chocolate City’s finest, Pryse!!!
