Bouqui’s Place Entertainment recently announced the launch of a new open mic show called D’Attic. The organisation, which is headed by female rapper Bouqui, describes the event as an evening of fine company, networking, relaxation and appreciation of God. The event debuts this Friday, 29th July 2011, and is scheduled to be held every last Friday of the month.
At the open mic show, artistes will be able express their talent and art in a calm and relaxing atmosphere with the aim of keeping the event a purely Christian music affair. “We discovered there are fewer opportunities for Christian artistes to express themselves and we want to provide platforms such as this”, says the rapper.
To further emphasize the principles of the show, its tagline is ‘CLEAN’, an acronym for Creative, Lyrical, Earnest, Altering, Norms. According to Bouqui, “participating artistes are expected to be Creative, have strong Lyrics, must be Earnest in their expression and be ready to Alter acceptable Norms.”
“I am super excited about this”, organiser Bouqui said “We planned D’Attic as an opportunity to have freestyle battles, poetry and spoken word all in a relaxed atmosphere. We are positive everyone who attends this event will enjoy it”.
D’Attic is scheduled to be held on the last Friday of the month at the Planet One, 1 Maryland Street, Ikeja, Lagos.
