Ton of thousand of people in Nigeria turn up for a single musical show and more for football view, but according to statistic less than ten per cent of the number of those that turn up for both events register for a business development program or event.
Olamide Live in concert OLIC, an annual event that just concluded its 4 edition in Dec 2017, was formerly held at Eko Hotel convention centre and the 4th edition was moved to Taslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos, this according to source is to enable more audience and space.
The list goes on and on for such events, without forgetting to mention that of Davido and Wizkid who are currently Africa’s frontiers, representing entertainers internationally in relation to their MOBO awards.
