Chike, Nigeria’s soul singer had the maiden edition of his concert tagged ‘Chike Live:No music No life’ last night, 17th of December 2021 . The event was held at Muri Okunola park, Victoria Island Lagos.
The talented singer who released his first album ‘Boo of the booless’ in 2020 performed songs like Insecure, Roju, If you no love me amongst others songs alongside his band. Now that is the bright side of the concert.
One of the down side of the much anticipated music fiesta was that it started very late. A concert that was meant to have started by 5:00pm in the evening, kicked off at some minutes past nine. Kemi Filani News observed that fun lovers who attended the show had to be treated to diverse performances from unknown artistes.
For a concert of that magnitude, one would have expected Chike to have mounted the stage early enough. However, the ‘Roju’ crooner wasn’t called on stage till about 11.30pm at night.
Asides from Simi, M.I, Mayorkun, Funnybone who performed at the show, the concert witnessed a low turnout from Nigerian celebrities. Perhaps, they snubbed Chike’s show for Tiwa Savage’s Livespot X festival.
Several celebrities like Toyin Abraham, Iyabo Ojo, Toke Makinwa, Tacha, Moet Abebe, Agbani Darego were present at the Tiwa Savage concert.
On how she feels about Chike’s concert, a certain tweep @mc_matiki wrote: “Chike gave us a fantastic experience with his personality and humour”.
