The sprawling city of Ikorodu, Lagos State, will this Saturday play host to the Glo Mega Music Nationwide Tour, the 27-city flagship show of the fully integrated telecommunications company, Globacom.
The show, which kicked off in Awka, Anambra State, on April 15, 2017, had berthed in 26 different cities and locations such as Aba, Calabar, Asaba, Benin, Victoria Island, Ajah, Ikeja, Benin, Port Harcourt, Owerri, Ekpoma, Enugu, Kubwa, Abuja, Suleja, Makurdi, Lokoja, Ayingba, twice in Port Harcourt and Ibadan, Akure, Abeokuta and Ijebu Ode.
In a press statement issued to announce the Ikorodu edition of the popular show in Lagos on Thursday, Globacom said that the event would be held at Ikorodu Musical Village at 4.00 p.m.
According to the statement, artistes billed to perform at the show include the new hi-hop sensation, Axterix, Marvin records queen, Di’Ja, the nation’s great vocalist, Kiss Daniel, the Nabania crooner, Flavour, the Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa, Timaya, and the Idoma-born music master, Tuface.

Mama G, Kanayo O. Kanayo (KOK) and Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD) would be making guest celebrity appearances.
Globacom said the show is holding for the fifth time in Lagos, adding that “this goes to show the prime place Lagos State occupies in our minds in the scheme of things. As a company, we believe that nothing is too big for us to celebrate and reward our teeming subscribers for their loyalty and faith in the Glo Brand”.
Just last Sunday, residents of Ajah and its environs were treated to a generous dose of laughter when the sister show, the Glo Laffta Fest, held in the locality.
While explaining that the show is free of charge, Globacom said, “all a subscriber willing to attend the show needs to do is to recharge his or her Glo SIM card with a minimum of N2,000 within a month for either voice or data usage and send a text message “MUSIC IKORODU” to a short code 207. The subscriber will then get a message inviting him or her for the show”.
