While there’s been no word yet from the show’s producers, the EME crew are also keeping their lips sealed. It is believed that no less than 10 major fan-pleasers, drawn from different genres and generations, will join producers R28 and EME to treat Lagosians to the biggest and ‘baddest’ Christmas concert ever.
What are the names being thrown up?
Top on the list, according to insiders, is Grammy-nominated juju legend King Sunny Ade. Other names in circulation include revered pop icon 2face Idibia, Fuji giant Pasuma Wonder , hip-hop superstars M.I and Naeto C and the world-famous D’Banj.
Organisers say full concert details, including surprise acts, co-headliners, and other elements will be released in a matter of days.
Apart from the Nigerian stars joining the bill, at least two international acts will also fly in to join EME for a night of lavish entertainment and fun.
‘We’re certainly throwing a concert Nigeria will not forget in a while, Banky said during rehearsals yesterday, refusing to name which artistes will join the EME acts. ‘I can’t let the cat out of the bag yet, but trust me, there’s no concert like The Baddest concert, and you’ll say I said so when you hear the names of our guest acts.
The EME concert, holding on Friday, December 21, at Oceanview in VI, Lagos, is the inaugural edition of the annual concert from Nigeria’s leading music label Empire Mates Entertainment and revolutionary events company R28.
