Olamide’s stage appearance was expected to be massive. No other Nigerian artist has come close to releasing the number of hits Baddosneh has released in the past 12 months alone. The crowd at #OLIC2 could not wait for him to step out so that they could dance along to “Bobo”, “Lagos Boys” and “Melo Melo”.
When he did step out onstage at the event organised by Right Ent, Achievas Ent & YBNL, he brought with him one of the most epic stage sets ever witnessed in the history of Nigerian pop music. Even the most stratospheric expectations were exceeded as he pulled out all the stops with a live band, a marching brass band, a mini-documentary and OAP Do2dtun as his stage hype man.
He came back three more times throughout the night and got the same raucous reception from the crowd each time. Simply put, it was Nigerian music’s live performance of the year.
