Nigerian acts took their performances to another level. Praiz, one of Nigeria’s finest set the stage on fire with his motivating songs, “Rich and Famous” and “Mercy” which had fans singing along. As the ladies were still swooning over Praiz, another sex symbol, Banky W, stormed the stage to take the audience on another musical journey with some of his current tunes which included “Ma Jaye Orimi“.

Young Nigerian artists, Jeffry and Immaculate set the stage for Omo Akin who stormed the podium with beautiful tunes such as “Suretete” and “Talosobe“. The audience were yet to recover from Omo Akin when JJC, took the stage by storm with his popular tune, “We Are African“.
