Asake, Wande Coal, Naira Marley and others perform at Tinubu’s inauguration concert (Video)
Asake, Wande Coal, and Brymo were among the music stars who thrilled the audience at the inauguration concert of Bola Tinubu, the president-elect.
The event, titled ‘RenewedHopeConcert’, was held at the MKO Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Thursday night.
The concert was organised by the youths of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to celebrate the outcome of the general elections.
Some music stars who performed at the event include Pasuma, Buju, Waje, Asake, Fireboy, Kcee, Timaya, Naira Marley, Tony Tetuila, and Seyi Vibes, amongst others.
While Asake thrilled the huge crowd with some of his hit songs, Timaya left attendees stunned when he delivered a rendition of ‘As E Dey Sweet Us, E dey Pain Dem’.
It remains to be seen if the song was aimed at the new government or any opposition.
Wande Coal took to the stage to entertain the audience with a spectacular performance while Asake and Fireboy teamed up for ‘Bandana’.
“Abuja is about to experience first of its kind inauguration concert featuring all the A list artistes to the Z list,” Eniola Badmus, one of the concert organisers, earlier wrote on her Instagram page.
“Just because we believe so much in unity and one Nigeria. Election is over, let us come together as one and make Nigeria great again. The new era is called renewed hope.”

2023 AMVCA kicks off with cultural event
The three-day ceremony for the 9th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Award (AMVCA) will begin today.
In a statement on Wednesday, Busola Tejumola, MultiChoice Nigeria executive head of content, said the ceremony will commence with the opening night and cultural day event.
Tejumola said the opening night will formally kick off the series of activities preceding the award night on Saturday.
The statement added that this year’s edition of the AMVCAs is focused on raising the bar when it comes to recognising and rewarding talents in the various aspects of the African film and television industry.
“Last year, we had an eight-day lineup of activities leading to the Award Night. This year will be no different. We have decided to sustain the momentum by bringing back all the activities. The only difference is that they will all take place within three days,” the statement reads in part.
“The three-day extravaganza will start on May 18 with the ‘Opening Night and Cultural Day’ event – a celebration of African culture and diversity, followed by the ‘Runway Show and Nominee Gala’ on May 19 – a nod to the key role fashion, style and design play in the film and television industry and a means to give young designers a boost in their careers.
“In this year’s runway competition, the winners stand the chance to walk away with cash prizes and opportunity to work with the brand team of Pepsi one of the brands they are set to create innovative designs for on the runway.
“The award show will air live on May 20 across all Africa Magic channels on DStv and GOtv, starting from 4 pm WAT.”
In April, the award organisers announced the nominees for the 9th AMVCA.
Zozibini Tunzi, the South African model, and IK Osakioduwa, the Nigerian TV star, were recently named the hosts for the award ceremony.
