YBNLConcertUK2016 Shut Down The Apollo!!!
The YBNL crew led by Olamide aka Baddo brought out the entire Afrobeats fans in the UK breaking the record for the most attended show for their hugely anticipated YBNLConcertUK 2:0.
With huge anticipation around the soldout concert, the headline acts Lil Kesh, Adekunle Gold and Olamide entertained the 5000 strong fans at the prestigious Eventim Apollo.
With the doors opening early, DJ’s Eni Money, Unbeatable, Neptizzle and Sean alongside the Acenote band and other acts ensured the fans were in party mood before and during Olamide’s (the YBNL Boss) first performance.
The only downside was the failure of Olamide to give his close off performance due to stoppages brought about by the capacity of the crowd – which created a lot of friction in and out of the venue.
With the venue at full capacity the security officials had no choice but to close the doors refusing a whole lot of angry fans entry into the concert.
After the headline acts had given incredible performances, the show had climaxed with Olamide returning to the stage only to be closed down by the arena due to continuous attempts by fans to gain entry into the venue which resulted in the safety alarm of the venue going off consistently.
To Olamide and the fans’ disappointment, the throng of fans were denied the highly expected performance of some of his monster hits like ‘Who You EPP’.
Olamide said after the concert that although he was humbled at the record number of fans who came out to see him, he was still disappointed at the fact that his fans didn’t get to witness the end of the show as he had planned and prepared for months.
CEO of Smade events Junior Adeosun said “All attempts were made to ensure Olamide gave his final performance including offering to cover any security costs to the venue but we eventually had to understand the health and safety concerns of the arena owners as the crowd outside continuously rushed the door “.
With that being said, nothing could be taken away from the the night put together by Smade events which saw another record breaking night for AFROBEATS in the UK and more importantly a night that crowned
Olamide officially as the new King of AFROBEATS .
