Sunday, October 26th was the October edition of the concert series, One Mic Naija and it was one of the craziest editions yet!
Between the Manchester United and Chelsea game, and the rain, things were off to a shaky start, but once the hosts, Kel and Kunle KB Bello got on stage, it was all smooth sailing.
The open mic sessions (audience freestyle) usually take place later on in the show but because One Mic Naija had partnered with ‘Tame Da Beat’, an online competition, there was a rap battle first to kick things off.
The beat successfully tamed, it was time for some live music action with Kola Soul. He had a soulful set which Uche of City FM loved so much that he had to come take a selfie during!
Where Kola was soulful, Saeon was sexy, earning that nickname, “Sexy Saeon Moruda”.
With dark lips and a fab attitude, she put performed songs from her E.P, including “Friends with Benefit”, and “Boogie Down” featuring Wizkid.
It was girl action after girl action as Chee stepped up to the plate and took it to church. She said if it rained, she wouldn’t mind because she was ready to dance!
Thankfully for her, the skies held long enough for her to finish.
The A List game continued with Illbliss “Oga Boss” and fabulous Chidinma. Ayoola surprised everyone when he and the One Mic Naijaband got into costumes for his own set which included powerful single, “Amin”.
Different from the others but not less awesome was Godwin Strings who thrilled the crowd with his cover of pop songs on his violin.
In the end, One Mic Naija, Green Green Green edition was one of the best yet and the question is, what will December bring?
