Over 7000 people besieged the Eko Hotels Convention Centre
yesterday to witness the third installment of the Olamide Live in
Concert, tagged OLIC3. With tickets sold out twenty-four hours to
the event, the concert was already a runaway success before it
The almost unbelievable success of the two previous
editions had set a very high standard for OLIC 3 and the organizers
ensured that it lived up to its billing, albeit to the fullest with
a world class stage set, fantastic sound and lighting, impressive
security arrangement inside and outside the venue, and an overall
highly commendable logistic coordination.
With the release of his
sixth album ‘The Glory’ earlier in the morning of boxing day,
Olamide again shut down Eko Hotel with a traffic snarl of people
coming to watch the concert stretching as long as five kilometers
inwards and outwards the venue and thousands others walking in an
unprecedented pedestrian traffic!
The entire show which was hosted
by comedians AY Makun and Funke Akindele was full of undiluted
excitement as the sets opened with amazing performances by Olamide’s
brother DJ Enimoney and DJ Consequence who got the expectant crowd
on their feet and shouting for more.
The supporting acts were also
very impressive on the night. Fuji/Hip-Hop artiste; Pasuma Alabi
was clearly the fans’ favorite on the night as he delivered a brief
but thrilling performance that earned him a standing ovation.
the Governor of Lagos, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode and his wife, Oba
Saheed Elegushi, Senator Dino Melaye and many other dignitaries in
attendance, Olamide did not disappoint his fans as he delivered an
energetic three-set performance that had the crowd on their feet
anytime he came on stage.
The supporting acts too did not
disappoint with exhilarating performances by Phyno who performed
the 2016 song of the year ‘FadaFada’ with Olamide, Davido, Ycee,
Oritsefemi, Mayorkun, YBNL’s Adekunle Gold, Viktoh and Temi Ovwasa,
Lil Kesh, and many others.
Stand-up comedy performances by Ushbebe,
Pencil, Seyi Law, and Funny Bone also added spice to what is
undoubtedly the Concert of the Year.
YBNL boss, Olamide Adedeji has
once again stamped his authority and supremacy with OLIC3 and it
appears he can only continue the ascendancy.
Editor-In-Chief at Pulse.ng; Osagie Alonge, “Olamide’s next set of
concerts should be held at a stadium. He’s outgrown Eko Hotel. He
has moved on from the Hip-Hop community to the mainstream years
ago. He’s now moved into legendary status, throw the kid a crown”.
