Nigerian music sensation, Wizkid, didn’t disappoint fans as he led a rich cast of artistes for the first ever ‘On the Beach Fest’ tagged ‘Wiz on the Beach’ at the Hard Rock Beach, Victoria Island. ‘ Wiz on the Beach’ was aimed at celebrating Wizzy and his year of enviable accomplishments.
The event served as the debut edition of ‘On the Beach’ concert, where a successful artiste is paid a handsome sum of money and headline’s the concert. And this year, that successful artiste was Wizkid.
The event had gracefully performances from some of the industry’s finest, like Maleek Berry, CDQ, Shaydee, Runtown, DJ Maphorisa, Wande Coal, Tiwa Savage, Mr Eazi, DJ Jimmy Jatt, DJ Xclusive, DJ Spinall and DJ Big N.
Before the show was kick-started, the air was oozing with energy and fan-love. And MyMusic was live at the concert to witness one of the most anticipated concerts of 2017. Thousands of fans converged at Oniru beach to celebrate with Wizkid. And as would be expected, Alcohol and food was in abundance, with the live band on standby.
Tiwa Savage led the array of performances. Then, Mr Eazi stepped in to convince the fans that indeed ‘Life is Eazi’. Wande Coal mounted the stage next and swept the fans off their feet with his amiable talent and performance. Then Wizzy stepped in and everything was just right. With a red tee and a red scarf, the performance was truly a hot one as fans rushed forward to have a ‘feel’ of Wizkid. And Wizkid in turn referred to them as “Eyin Temi”, meaning ‘My People’.
Then he chased away the journalists and cameramen from the front of the stage saying
“Right now, I want to do something. Cameramen, leave this place. I want to see my fans. Move away so I can perform for my fans.”
He went on to tell a cameraman
“Don’t come near me, I don’t want to see you on stage,”
He went on to threaten to throw another out
“I go tell security to carry you comot the show o”
After all that, he cleared the security from the barricades and fans raced to the stage where he could dance with them an get in close proximity with them and it almost went foul. At different times, the security personnel caught people hopping on stage to touch the superstar performer.
The unsatisfactory conduct of the fans got to Wizkid who criticized their behavior.
“You see why I can’t use a stadium for a concert? Who will secure all of us like this”
He had to halt his to step-up for a girl who was being assaulted at the venue. He said
“Please security, carry that girl comot for there come stage before they kill her. They don press her yansh finish”
And the lady was put on the stage, where she enjoyed the show.
