The two shows, Glo Mega Music Nationwide Tour and the Glo Laffta Fest comedy Show will hold next weekend, Globacom has announced.
The Glo Mega Music Tour will now hold at Marble Arch Awka, Anambra State on Saturday, April 15, while Aztech Event Centre, Port Harcourt, Rivers State will host the Glo Laffta Fest on Sunday, April 16.
In a statement in Lagos on Thursday, Globacom said that the shows will then move to all the 27 cities as scheduled with all the scheduled artistes performing as planned. It also announced that the company has decided to give more opportunities to the youth to be part of the shows by reducing the threshold for entry for shows from the initial N3, 000 usage in the previous month to N2, 000.
According to Globacom, the shows were organised to thank its subscribers across the country for their loyalty and support for the Glo brand over the years.
Top Nigerian artistes including Olamide, Timaya, Runtown, Di’Ja and Omawumi will participate in the Glo Mega Music Concert while the Glo Laffta Fest will feature Africa’s funniest comedians like Gordons, Basketmouth, Bovi, Salvador from Uganda, Bash, Arinze Baba and Princewill.
In addition, Ghollywood and Nollywood stars including Juliet Ibrahim, Mercy Johnson and Ebube Nwagbo will anchor the shows in addition to guest appearances by leading celebrities such as Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), Mama G, Kanayo O. Kanayo and Funke Akindele.
The shows will hold in 27 locations across Nigeria over a period of six months while other shows slated for April include Glo Mega Music Tours in Owerri on April, 22, Asaba on April 29 and Calabar on May 6. Also, the Glo Laffta Fest will hold in Abuja on April 23, Enugu on April 30 and Owerri on May 7.
To qualify to be part of the Glo Mega Music Concert, the company urged subscribers who have used up to N2,000 in the preceding month to text “Music” and their preferred location to a short code, 207. For instance, to attend the music show in Abuja, the subscriber should send “Music Abuja” to 204, while for the Laffta Fest Comedy show, the subscriber is to send “LOL” and the preferred location to short code 240.
