At exactly 12 noon on the 12th of March 2011, Golden Icons Media was present at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos, Nigeria to cover the My City Rocks Concert, an impressive and memorable show put together by Flytime Promotions, which attracted thousands of Nigerian youths who came in droves to witness the much advertised and anticipated performances of a number of the top favorite artistes in the country.
My City Rocks Concert was orchestrated to drum up support for the second term ambition of Governor Babatunde Fashola SAN, and indeed, it was an unforgettable event in the history of Nigerian politics, as the presence of the Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN provided a new dimension to how the “government” and the “governed” can share fun and relaxing moments together. It is no surprise that Fashola continues to enjoy the support of his people as he warms up for re-election as the governor of Lagos state under the Action Congress of Nigeria party. Governor Fashola addressed the youth and received supportive cheers.
The stage was set aglow with an explosive blend of Nigeria’s hottest music stars including Tuface, P-Square, Banky W, 9ice, Wizkid, Mo’Cheddah, Dare Art Alade;and rib-cracking comedians such as Basket Mouth, Saeed Oshupa, and Seyi Law. A few notable Nollywood stars were also present, and Funke Akindele, who is widely known as “Jenifa”, was also spotted at the event.
A combination of the various stage performances, musical jams, and hilarious comedy by the aforementioned artistes made this event a memorable one, and the thrilling moment saw the crowd dancing to the songs of their music idols and laughing uncontrollably to jokes by Basket Mouth and Seyi Law.
