Fally Ipupa, 2Face & J Martins light up the MTV Live stage in Lagos



On Friday 1 April 2011 at Tribeca in Lagos, MTV Base Africa hosted “MTV Live“, a live music showcase which will be making its way round Africa in 2011. Congolese superstar Fally Ipupa gave his first full live set performance in Nigeria, Fally performed a stunning live set with his full band and back-up dancers, including his signature, hip-shaking song “Sexy Dance“.

2Face and J Martins and hit the stage. Both acts delivered stellar performances which got the crowd dancing and singing along. J Martins and Fally Ipupa got a chance to perform their 2010 single “Jupa (Remix)” for the MTV Live audience.

The first edition of MTV Live was themed around “Choose or Lose“, MTV’s voter mobilization campaign, which is designed to inspire and empower young Nigerians to exercise their right to vote ahead of the upcoming April elections. The event also included screening of “Rep 4 Naija“, the music video collaboration between Nigerian musicians eLDee, Sound Sultan, Black Twang, Naeto C, D’banj and M.I.

    April 12, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    wow! this is a red carpet done right! Mo’Cheddah is sooo cute, and love the outfit and the hair.
    Goldie finally looks nice, nothing outrageous this time.
    as for Ifeoma Williams and Djinee, i don’t even know what look the two of them were going for (confused face)
    anyway, overall, i think it was a hit.

    One day, one day I’ll understand the Fally Ipupa hype. Most importantly though, did majority of the guys plan those ridiculously razz poses? My gosh.

    Oh and Wande I’m still waiting on a new album from you boo. Patiently waiting.

    April 13, 2011 at 2:11 pm

    Iphie Williams needs not only a stylist, but an Image Consultant!! Come on? She never dresses down properly….she only manages to look good when she’s all dolled up. I’m sure the girls at grey or Ejiro Amos Tafiri can fix that!

    as for goldie’s gold hair? SMH
    KSB: 😡
    Kaffy needs to stop working on her bod and work on her face, like!!!
    Waje…looks good but needs to step up her dressing game…your shape is fab so please dont go JHud’s route and lose your beauty in the process o!
    Bolanle Okhiria …NO! NO! Double NO! NO!!
    2baba…Hell to the NO!
    Dokta Frabz: :* ({})
    Mo Chedda….tres beautiful!

    What if they can’t stand d cold from the AC? I’m afraid of going to the gym cos i don’t want to look like kaffy? Does keeping fit make people look old? Mochedda, u’re so hot my nieces told me Brandy did a collabo with skuki (lol), seriously they think u look like Brandy,, they are 7 and 9 anyways. Can someone pls tell Djinee to stop gathering the weight? Na so e dey take start, soon we won’t recognise him at an event and he may lose thaat wonderful voice he’s blessed with and start singing like a frog.
