It’s Iyanya! Photos of M.I, Burna Boy, Wande Coal, Vector & more at the “Kukere” Master’s Abuja “Iyanya Vs. Desire” Album Launch



I’m not entirely sure how many Nigerian artists have had multiple huge album launch concerts but in Iyanya‘s case, success seems like a sure thing, having two album launch concerts in both Abuja and Lagos.

On the 24th of February, 2013, I’m pretty sure the city of Abuja shook from the intensity of the concert that held at the International Conference Center. Featuring such stars as M.I, Burna Boy, Vector, Wande Coal, Emma Nyra, Bassey Okon and much more, Iyanya’s Abuja album launch was a rollercoaster ride of a show.

And, he’s not done yet, his Lagos album launch is coming up next on the 2nd of March, 2013. After seeing the photos from the Abuja show, we literally can’t wait. So, while we patiently await the D-day (desire, get it?), here are a few photos from the Abuja album launch to show you how Iyanya does it.

Check on it!

It’s Iyanya!

More Stars in the building!

      yea she was!

  4. 19 songs is a tad high o! he should have split the songs into 2 albums so that every single will get its shine. some good songs will be lost in the album.
    Am I the only one that misses the project fame iyanya? the guy can really sing. Naija has a way of reducing your talent but the dude gotta make his money don’t blame him at all. I hope he has some R n’ B songs on this album though

    MI has gained a serious potbelly. It’s bad enough that he is so short, he now wants to add pot belly on top. Hit the gym man.
