Glo takes Slide ‘n’ Bounce concert to Ikeja
Residents of Ikeja, Lagos, over the weekend shared the fun and thrill of Globacom’s first-class entertainment show, the Glo Slide ‘n’ Bounce concert.
The event which was held at the Ikeja Water Parks Hotel on Toyin Street attracted excited subscribers on the Glo network in the area who came to watch their entertainment idols such as Korede Bello, Burna Boy and the celebrated PSquare perform at no cost to them.
As Glo had done in several cities where the show has been hosted, the next generation network ensured that the teeming subscribers who turned up for the show were thoroughly entertained as resourceful Nollywood actor and comedian, Okey Bakassi, up and coming artistes as well as the main acts of the evening took turns to perform to the delight of the audience.
The Disc Jockey for the night, DJ Neptune, got the audience dancing to different hit tunes. The dancing competition for the night which was won by Adeosun Adeleke, attested to the limitless talents that abound in the country.
As part of the side attractions for the night, the remaining 26 contestants in the Reality TV Show, Dance with Peter (DWP), sponsored by Globacom, made guest appearances at the show. Their superlative and energetic dance steps and choreography stunned the audience and left them wishing for more.
Oluwa-Damzy, a guitarist and one of the local hands who performed at the show, stood out as the audience sang along with him while he displayed an unusual dexterity with the strings. Other local hands at the show included Neeyu, Martins, Jeffy Brown, Icee and D- Money, a younger brother to the “Akpako” master, Terry G.
The show then moved to a different level when the “God Win” exponent, Korede Bello, entered the stage with his “Adaobi” hit track. His dancing crew of five beautiful ladies was simply exotic with their acrobatic display on stage.
The coming of the Glo Ambassador and late Fela Anikulapo’s protégé, Burna Boy, completely changed the tempo of the show, and the crowd surged forward to feel the afrobeat entertainer ply his trade.
The sensational musical twins, PSquare, rounded off the evening of fun and their performance was electrifying, especially when the DWP contestants joined them on stage to celebrate with their idol and originator of the Reality TV Show, Peter Okoye.
From Ikeja, the Slide ‘n’ Bounce concert will move to neighbouring satellite town of Egbeda this weekend
