    I’m only here for seyi shay & tinie! She’s a bad ass performer.
    I watched the concert online, and I’ll give the organizers props for streaming it live online.
    Idris Elba dissapointed me with his drunk ass, Basketmouth & Bovi saved the show he was meant to
    be hosting.
    Pusha T had way too much stage time, while his music is appreciated stateside, I doubt there were
    that many hip hop heads in the audience to truly appreciate him.

    Based on what I watched and tweets from people who were at the concert, it was far from a good show.

    I was at the show it was fun and interesting . Big ups to vodstreet team for the online streaming , my major complaint was the venue, the location and lack of traffic control which made the event stressful n non- coordinated.i must say security was good which is the most important. Good job basket mouth n Bovi for making our night!

    Stupid people. Naija not ready for an open concert.Venue was too far,disorganised and I didn’t even get there before turning back. The organisers should be slapped for such a disorganised concert.The truth be told!
