African diva Yemi Alade lit up Abuja on New Year’s night, ushering fans into 2019 with her explosive concert “The Afrikan Festival.”
The concert was hosted by Denrele Edun, Beverly Osu, Nancy Isime and Shody The Turn-up King at the Central Park Abuja, where the hosts welcomed the new year with a countdown climaxing with brilliant fireworks and spirited cheers from guests.
The award-winning performer thrilled fans with electric renditions of songs from her rich discography aided by her Ova Sabi band. Miss Alade brought out L.A.X, Skales, then was joined by Waje for an emotive duet of “I’m Available,” followed by Seyi Shay.
Shay and Alade sang “Yolo” together as fans screamed in excitement. The climax was when Yemi brought out Falz to join her to perform “Single & Searching” before ending the night with a thrilling performance of “Johnny.”
