M.I Pays Tribute To DaGrin And MC Loph

  ...As 70,000 fans troop out to see Wande Coal, JMartins, Mr Raw and Phyno
It seems the season of drought has ended in Owerri, Imo State as superstar acts, M.I, JMartins,Mr Raw, Wande Coal, Phyno and Crystals brought over 70,000 thousands fans out to Hero Square Owerrifor the 3rd leg of the Star Music Trek concerts.

Despite the poor weather and threatening rain, the crowd refused to leavethe concert venue until the very last note, forcing the night’s stars to extend their sets to satisfy eager fans who attended from Owerri, Abia, Enugu, Aba, Nnewi and other surrounding communities.

Rave of the momentAzubuikeChibuzor Nelson,better known as Phyno,was undoubtedly the star of the night, delivering over 25 minutes of non-stop hits from his growing repertoire, includingAmanchiKwanu, My Cool and Ghost Modeall delivered with his unique infusion of Igbo Language, Pidgin and English. Unfortunately,despite his stellar performance, the artiste could not satisfy his fans even as he left the stage,as they kept demanding for encores.

“I’m humbled by the love and appreciation’’,he said after his performance.

Black Diamond, Wande Coal’s performance was,as one fan aptly put it:“simply off the hook’. Belting out a medley of his greatest hits includingYou Bad,Bumper 2 Bumper, Rotate and The Kick, the Mavin singerbrought an enormous amount of energy with him on stage.

MrRaw returned to Owerri last weekend, with a rich set that justifies claims he’s one of the greatest acts from the South East. Backed by a 7-man band, the rapper connected with fans in ways words cannot capture, enjoying himself as much as the fans, and bringing back memories of some of his greatest classics over the years such as Obodo,Aragagbandiara, Spiritual Konji and more.

And once again, JMartins brought tears to his fans eyes as he interrupted his powerful set spanning Touching Body, Good or Bad, Yoyo and more to bring Chukwudia handicapped fan up to the stage to dance.

From his tribute performances in memory of DaGrin and MCLoph to his hit tracks, One Naira, Money Slow To Enter, Chairman and many more laced with his signature wit and hard-hitting style Mr Incredible,M.I, stayed on top of the moment stretching what was already an already extended concert performance to open up the early hours of the morning.

The train moves on to Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, in Enugu this weekend, June 29.

Star Music Trek 2013 spanning 10 weeks, will tour 8 other cities across the country, namely Aba, Abeokuta,Agege,(-Lagos) Asaba, Enugu, (-Lagos)Nnewi, and  Surulere (Lagos).

The grand finale of Star Music Trek 2013 ends on August 10, 2013 in Surulere, Lagos.
