From an entertainment perspective, there aren’t many surer bets in the Nigerian music industry than Blaqbonez at the moment. Between the artist’s unconventional style, and non-stop shenanigans and mischief, there is almost always a reason to pay attention to 100 Crowns’ eccentric rapper. Fresh off his Admiralty walk, and “Shut Up” single release, the artist hosted a viewing party at CCX Lagos, for his “Shut Up” music video – to be released on Tuesday, 23 September, 2019.
Flanked by snazzy ornaments, and perched under purple neon lighting, guests at the release were treated to drinks, food, great music, and a rolodex of Blaqbonez’s videos, which were projected on a big screen. There were also a number of events including a Q&A session with Blaqbonez, during which, he discussed the creative process behind the single, as well as his views on the current state of hip-hop in Nigeria. The artist was also visibly in a pleasant mood, smiling throughout, and laughing with guests; even at one point joking that he was “The Best Comedian in Africa”, in addition to being the best rapper.
There were more than a few high-profile guests in attendance including Olori Supergal, Ckay, Joeboy, Oxlade, Joey Akan, Noble Igwe, Osagie Alonge and many more.
