Enugu, the coal city got more than its fair share of magical musical performances as the Campus Connect Tour sponsored by Amstel Malt, the premium low sugar beverage drink from the stable of Nigerian Breweries plc, played host to Nigerian’s Afro hip hop singing sensation, Innocent Ujah Idibia, popularly called 2face, and other talented musicians. The Campus Connect gig which was held at the prestigious Grand Royal Nelson Mandela muti-purpose hall in Enugu brought together a pool of music lovers for an unforgettable experience.
A mammoth crowd comprising students from Enugu State University of Science and Technology and the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), even defied the meteorological reports which predicted a heavy down pour only to be drenched by an unending soul-steering music performance by 2face and friends.
Speaking on behalf of the Brand Manager, Amstel Malta, Miss Hannatu Ageni Yusuf expressed her appreciation for the impressive turn out and the outstanding musical performances. “Amstel Malta has always championed and advanced the course of youths by encouraging them to be the best that they can be. Tonight’s performance is also a clear demonstration of being able to connect to the University students and the good people of Enugu. The Amstel Malt brand has a penchant for promoting good values in the youths in a bid to chart a good course for Nigeria as a nation. 2Face and his friends have been awesome and Amstel Malta, the low sugar premium brand from Nigerian Breweries is indeed delighted to be associated with them”.
On the night of the event, several budding and notable artistes gave the Enugu fans breath-taking performances. They include: Ranson, Money B, Hype M.C, Efa, Young Grace, 2Sec, Rocksteady, Damy Crane, Sheyi Shay, Rough Coil, Vector, Solid Star, Phyno, Sound Sultan and others. Music lovers in Enugu got more than they bargained for as these music acts offered interactive music renditions which drew endless applause and joyful moments from them.
The audience received 2face with uncontrollable chants of excitement. Apart from churning out some his iconic music tracks, 2Face also pepped up his performance with a repertoire of chorographers while he perfected the act of singing as well as skilfully manoeuvring his lanky gait. With cans of Amstel Malta in their hand, 2face proved to his fans for the umpteenth time why he is unarguably one of Nigeria’s hottest musical exports to the global scene.
The crowd cheered endlessly as 2Face recreated his popular tracks with improvisations. Tracks such as ‘For instance’, ‘Bush meat’, ‘Nfana Ibaga’, ‘U no holy pass’, ‘See me so’, ‘No shaking’, ‘Enter the place’, ‘Implication’, and his hit track from his recent‘ Away and Beyond’ album tagged ‘Ihe neme’. Certainly, 2Face and friends created a thrilling and electric musical scenery and the wild response of the Enugu fans shows that the Campus Connect gig put together by Amstel Malta, the premium low sugar drink which promotes greatness and healthy living among its consumers.
