Corper ‘Shon! – Lynxxx, Tiwa Savage, Sauce Kid & more Shine at NYSC Corpers Parade

Published

 on

For the thousands of graduates who have passed through NYSC (National Youth Service Corps) Orientation Camp before the start of their service year, the mere mention of ‘Camp’ conjures images of sweat, sand and tears at having to undergo rigorous exercises at the crack of dawn. Every morning, the corpers, with their droopy eyes and slouched backs are swiftly called to attention by soldiers with the phrase, “Corpahhhh ‘Shon!”, (shon being short for attention) and one dares not stand straight after that.

However, on Friday July 22nd 2011, at the Lagos NYSC Camp, ‘Lynxxx & Friends’ changed the parade from a somber march in the morning to a fun-filled Friday night.

Lynxxx

Pepsi Ambassador, Lynxxx, performed live with his in-house producer, Ikon.

Other artists in the line-up were Tiwa SavageSauce KidIkechukwu,Show Dem Camp, EvaPlay Records All StarsDavidoA1 Sugarboy, BlackMagic, Bad Man Floss, Dammy Krane and a few others.  The event was hosted by the BEAT 99.9 FM’s Oreka Godis and DJ Caise was on the wheels of steel entertaining our nation’s corpers on camp grounds.

The “Lynxxx & Friends” campus tour presented by Pepsi and produced by Eclipse is a cross-country promotional tour with a focus on creating an opportunity for upcoming artistes in the Nigerian entertainment industry to showcase their talent. The programme caters to the youth of our generation by feeding into their five senses and giving them a concert experience that is second to none.

Pepsi also hosted a singing competition at the concert and three corpers were given gifts courtesy of the soft-drink giant. Over 2,000 youth corpers were in attendance sporting their ‘Suck belle make the shirt fine’ tee-shirts over NYSC khaki trousers.

According to a Syndik8 label rep, plans have been made for the ‘Lynxxx & Friends’ tour  to be held in the north, east and south-south region of the country, on a much larger scale. Diary sessions from the tour will air on music stations across the country starting mid-August and will be released on DVD in a few months.

    i need to make a strong point.

    Lynxxx’s business strategy reminds me of the likes of Asa and 2face that dont try to fit into the industry by doing copy copy (sound etc) He seems to have his strategy and plans laid out and doesnt look back with his ideas!

    i remember him being one of the 1st to start doing proper album launches cos i was at the launch of his album in december at the federal palace and the place was over packed with stars and supporters, before clubs were album launches now every one has followed the trend.

    now i tend to see him touring up and down the country with a great line up of supporting artist and this again is something artists dont do!!!! we need MORE of these kind of moves from the industry!!! not jus club club parties!

    he is paying his dues and is doing a fantastic job at it cos he tends to be on major bills all the time!!

    TiwaSavage is another act i respect for taking the same path!
    wish i had this kind of show in camp!!! my 08 set was dead boring!!! yuck!!

    kudus to all the artists, looks like mad fun!!!

    i see y pepsi endorsed Lynxxx now cos with all these shows and mad publicity lynxxx is giving them they are getting their moneys worth on a larger mass scale than a mere radio or billboard add would give them!!
