The September 13th of this year would see six legends in the Nigerian music industry gather on a stage for a concert tagged ‘Night With The Masters’. Ebenezer Obey, Femi Kuti, Bright Chimezie, Wasiu Ayinde, Shina Peters and Onyeka Owenu will perform at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos for a never before seen concert. Moving away from the regular hip hop concerts most Nigerians are used to, Over The Top Entertainment, the organizers of this concert have described it as concert aimed at those that love the music of the old masters of the game.
Announcing the concert, the Chief Executive Officer of Over The Top Entertainment, Otunba Akin Alabi stated that a lot of Nigerian music lovers are being left out of the entertainment scene as events are targeted to only lovers of hip hop music. Otunba Alabi said, “Everywhere you turn to, you will see events that target the lovers of hip hop music in Nigeria. “While this is a positive sign that the Nigerian music industry is growing in leaps and bounds everyday, there is no doubt that a lot of people, especially the lovers and followers of the music of the grand masters of Nigerian music, are being left out. That is why we have put together six legends of Nigerian music to perform in a special concert, at Eko Hotel and Suites on September 13, 2013 to satisfy the yearnings of their fans.”
