Tiwa Savage Joins the Call to ‘Bring Back Our Girls’ at Star Music Trek #BringBackOurGirls
Sensational star artiste Tiwa Savage yesterday, also added her voice to the call for the release of the over two hundred schoolgirls abducted almost two weeks ago at the sixth stage of Star Music Trek which held in Ekwulobia.
Dressed in a shimmering green panelled outfit, the artiste spoke emotionally to thousands of fans who converged at Ekwulobia Township Stadium, Anambra State to watch her and other headline acts -Phyno, Mr Raw, Dr Sid and Kcee perform for the first time on the Trek in the city.
Raising silent fingers in the air, the audience calmly chanted ‘bring back our girls’ after her, effectively joining the nationwide call to find the over two hundred female students abducted from a high school in Chibok, Borno State on April 14, 2014.
The beautiful diva went on to give one of her most stage stunning performances yet, serenading the audience and an eager male fan in particular who was invited to join her on stage. Her duet with Dr Sid on Dorobucci was the icing on a delicious performance with the audience going wild in delirious excitement
Host, Gbenga Adeyinka on his part, provided the teeming audience with a sidesplitting show – part comic and part music- keeping thousands of male and female fans who surrounded the massive Trek stage glued to their feet for the over 10 hour performance.
Kcee and Harrysong dressed in colour coordinated yellow, white and black outfits performed a medley of their hit songs Beta Pikin and Buelinu Jesu Limpopo, Okpekete, Give it to Me and Pull Over as well as other hits for their appreciative fans.
As expected, Phyno’s performance drew high praise from guests who surged towards the singer repeatedly rapping enthusiastically to his chart toppers Man of the Year, Alobam, Ghostmode, Parcel and more.
Despite Dr Sid’s swift run down of his popular songs even right back to his Mo’Hits years, his hit song with Don Jazzy Surulere had the fans screaming in excitement right till he left the stage.
Mr Raw and his live band’s exceptional performance is still the talk of the city as the veteran artiste delivered many of his popular tunes including Hip Hop Gyration, Angel and Spiritual Conji.
Fayrouz Chilled Out Bar was the site for the pre-gig on May 2 in Awka, Anambra State, with many excited consumers carting away fantastic prizes from a raffle draw. Oluchi Cosmas won an LED TV presented to him by popular rap artiste, Mr Raw. Other fantastic prizes such as branded rugs, headphones, home theatres and more were won.
Since March 29 2014, Star Music Trek has toured six cities across Nsukka, Makurdi, Uyo, Umuahia and Orlu bringing together thousands of fans across the country to watch scintillating live performances from many of Nigeria’s biggest artistes.
