Ikeja, the capital city of Lagos State, will this week take its turn to host Glo Mega Music Nationwide Tour, the on-going flagship show of the fully integrated telecommunications company, Globacom.
Announcing the Ikeja edition of the popular show in Lagos on Thursday, Globacom, in a statement issued from its head office, said that the event would be held at 10 Degrees Event Centre, Oregun, at 4.00 p.m. on Sunday, July 2.
According to the statement, Globacom said that the major A-Listers who have been part of the show since its inception three months ago are expected to be on hand to entertain guests at the Ikeja edition of the show. Some of the artistes include Tuface, PSquare, Flavour, Timaya, Runtown, Reekado Banks and Katch.
“That the Glo Mega Music Tour is returning to Lagos barely two weeks after we held a blockbuster edition of the show in Victoria Island underscores the pride of place Lagos occupies in our hearts. Ikeja is set to experience the kind of complete and undiluted fun and entertainment that was unleashed at the shows in Victoria Island, Ibadan and other venues”, Globacom stated.
The company explained that in addition to the A-List artistes billed to perform at the concert, “the show will be anchored by the duo of Juliet Ibrahim from Ghana and Nigeria’s Ebube Nwagbo, while DJ Neptune will supply music from the turntable”.
The statement also added that Nollywood legend, Patience Ozokwor, a.k.a. Mama G, and Yoruba movie star, Odunlade Adekola, would be making guest celebrity appearances at the event.
Also speaking on the show, Mr. Augustus-ndu Offor, Glo Business Director, Lagos, said that the show “is specially designed to celebrate and reward our teeming subscribers for their loyalty and faith in the Glo Brand. This free, yet premium quality show is our own way of expressing our profound gratitude to our esteemed subscribers for standing solidly with this proudly Nigeria telecoms brand over the years”.
He added that, “in Globacom, our customers are number one. We are determined to always thrill them in different ways. This is why we are running this music show alongside the Glo Laffta Fest, the biggest comedy show ever in this country. No other company delights its customers this way”, Offor enthused.
To qualify to attend the concert, he added, “all a subscriber needs to do is to recharge his or her Glo SIM card with a minimum of N2,000 within a month and send the word “MUSIC” and the preferred location to a short code 207, such as “MUSIC IKEJA” to “207″ . The subscriber will then get a message inviting him or her to the show”.
