Ahead of the fourth edition of Olamide Live In Concert – OLIC4- the Nigerian singer, Olamide Adedeji, known simply as Olamide has assured Nigerians, especially all those interested in attending of “a total package”.
OLIC4 is scheduled to hold at Teslim Balogun Stadium on December 17, 2017, and the indigenous rapper has made a conviction that the stadium will be shut down that day, just like other editions at Eko Hotel.
Speaking further on shutting down the stadium that day, the singer said, “my people are my people. The relationship is genuine”; so they are going to be there.
When asked if he is competing with Phyno, who organised a similar concert in a bigger space, he said, “everyone is entitled to his opinion”.
He also promised that his colleagues who have been supporting him in OLIC 1, 2, and 3 will perform that day, but he was not particular about mentioning names.
Olamide’s manager, Alex Okeke, also present said OLIC4 has been planned for years now and it is going to be a hitch-free event that would look like a festival.
The plan, Mr Okeke continued, is to take Lagos to the world, to create an opportunity for tourism, so, people from all over the world would come for subsequent editions which would, in turn, benefit the state (Lagos) and Nigeria.
The Acting Commissioner for Tourism in Lagos, Adebimpe Akinsola, said the governor, Akinwunmi Ambode is an all-inclusive governor, who supports entertainment-like events, like they did with AMAA, Afrimma 2017, and they do that to “promote entertainment and use it to drive tourism in the state”.
Talking about Project T.H.E.S.E. – Tourism, Hospitality, Entertainment, Sports and Excellence – Mrs Akinsola said Olamide’s concert falls into the plan and, that is the reason the state decided to sponsor the event.
