After several weeks of campaigns and media promotion, the Grafton Entertainment and DM Records iConcur Concert lighted up the city of Port Harcourt last weekend. The concert, which was scheduled for Saturday, December 19, 2015, ran through 4am of Sunday, December 20, 2015.
The lineup of performances started with PH artistes, Knowledge and Bukwild, as they thrilled their home crowd with some exciting songs. Their performance was followed by another PH girl, Tonye, who got a lot of mainstream ovation for her single, “Criminal” (and remix featuring Timaya).
The iConcur concert switched gear as more artistes like Endia, Yung L, Orezi, Runtown, Ice Prince, KCee, Oritsefemi and Stereoman took the center stage.
Guests were still trying to catch their breath when another of their home boy, Mr. 2Kay stepped out. The “Bad Girl Special” singer performed with a live band and gave an outstanding performance, leading his band through some of his hit songs, including, “Who No Like Better Thing,” and “Moniegram.” It was definitely a home coming performance.
The energy of the event switched up again as Timaya stepped on stage. He delivered some of his biggest songs and paused to introduce the self-acclaimed Port first son, Duncan Mighty. The latter chanted with the crowd, giving them some of the songs from his catalogue of hits.
As Duncan Mighty rounded up, Timaya returned to the stage in his traditional South-south outfit to continue from where he stopped. To the amusement of the guests, he introduced Don Jazzy, who walked in indeed to perform their collaborative song titled, “I Concur”, a song that also inspired the title of the concert. Like that was not enough, the Dem Mama Records’ general called on the Koko master, D’banj to join them on stage.
D’banj and Don Jazzy gave an awesome performance as the audience sang along and screamed in excitement. They performed some songs from their Mo’Hits days and engaged the crowd in an unforgettable way.
Speaking after the event, Tonye Ibiama, CEO of Grafton Entertainment, who is also the co-executive producer of the event, expressed satisfaction in the production of the event and hints that 2016 is going to be bigger and hotter.
