Emotions, nostalgia and good vibes were the hallmark of the weekly music event edition headlined by Adigun Alapomeji 9ice.
Industry Nite with legendary Nigerian singer 9ice as headliner held on Wednesday at Ikeja, Lagos State.
The night, as usual, witnessed some upcoming talents get up on stage and try to impress and sell their music to the audience.
Some of Nigeria’s reigning comedians also came to show love to 9ice Including the veteran Tee A the comedian, new school comedian Kenny Blaq, Bash the comedian amongst others.
Following another performance by one of 9ice’s female fan singer who performed very beautifully in Yoruba songs of prayer and hope for better a life, and in between hailing ID Cabasa and 9ice, the ‘Alapomeji’ was ushered in by Spanky Manolo the industry nite host.
The legend took over from then on, immediately getting into his zone started his performance with ‘Photocopy’, which he then challenged fans to come forward and sing every single word of the song for a cash prize reward of N50,000 among other goodies.
Some of the singer’s fans did step up to the stage, and gave it a go but couldn’t make it to the finish line. In the end no one could wrap up all the lyrics without choking. 9ice then went ahead to sing the whole thing all by himself, which the audience did their best to sing along and mumble the rest.It was a fun sight.
Of course the night wasn’t going to be complete if he hadn’t performed his current wave making song ‘living things’ which he performed along with the past popular hits including ‘no be mistake’ ‘life drama’ ‘gongo aso’ and ‘street credibility’.
