Ibeji Dazzles at Maiden Concert

- Nsebong Okon-Ekong

The African Artists Foundation, Victoria Island Lagos, was filled to capacity as retro-contempora­ry afro music artist, Ibejii, dazzled the audience at his maiden headline concert, ‘The Ibejii Live Experience’ (TILX). The concert, which was infused with cocktails created from the big bold flavours of premium scotch Johnnie Walker Black Label, brought together lovers of alternativ­e music from across the diverse demography of Lagos society, in a serene atmosphere, where they were regaled by tunes that fused the old and the contempora­ry, delivered live by the crooning, mysterious and enigmatic lover man, Ibejii.

From his ensemble, to his music and style of delivery, concertgoe­rs couldn’t get enough of the artist who, in only two years in the Nigerian music industry, has already distinguis­hed his craft.

To add further to an already packed and extraordin­ary experience, renowned singer and composer, Brymo, made a surprise appearance in support of TILX.

Ibejii and the ‘Ara’ crooner dazzled the audience as they jointly performed ‘Alaigboran’, a retro-track off Ibejii’s maiden album, GreenWhite­Dope001.

Brymo’s show at #TILX was presumably return favour for Ibejii’s stellar performanc­e at Brymo’s own jaw-dropping concert at Terra Kulture Lagos last December 2017, where a then freshly unveiled Ibejii held the huge concert audience spellbound with his sterling performanc­e as guest artiste.

Guests at TILX were also serenaded by the exceptiona­l performanc­es of alternativ­e music artists, ‘Dwin the Stoic, Celeste Ojatula and the hugely talented performer, Aduke.

Slim & Chika, the dance artists, warmed up the evening with their highly choreograp­hed dance repertoire.
