A house of stars
At 11pm on Monday July 28th, it was like a heavy downpour of rain as top Nigerian Music acts  like Jaywon, Klever Jay, Minjin Sexy, DJ Xsmart from Raypower and Abayomey Alvin (Mr. Ideal 2012) all stormed the bar side of the hotel for their creative expression. Their appearance made the crowd of fun seekers to charge as they demand for performance from these stars.  Not long after that did they start to take the stage one after the other and their performance really unleashed a new dimension of fun on the crowd of fun seekers.

MTN Big Boy, “Dollar” steps in @ 11:15
When he arrived, he was the least expected of all guests at that hour of the night but trust the power of friendship, it can do anything. That was what worked for the Adeneyes when MTN big boy Adedolapo Bamgboye the Head of the Events and Sponsorship department of the leading African network stormed the event amidst pomp and style. A lot of young people especially artistes were swayed by his arrival at 11:15 pm as he exchanged pleasantries with other guests on the higher side of the bar. Dolapo who clocked 50 two years ago and who is famously addressed as “Ade Dollar” was adoring a black kaftan dress over a resource control cap which really made his gait physique look straight and dapping. The big boy later took his seat beside ID Ogungbe after greeting Otunba Dayo Adeneye and his wife, Caroline and other dignitaries at the event.

Howie Tee too 
Another big boy and entertainment buff that made it to the event that night was entertainment promoter extra-ordinary Howie Tee of Kiss Events Ltd. He was seen seated beside a female guest and you could see the light of good expression signifying that he enjoyed the event written all over his face. He later stood on his feet and made some very funny and interesting dance steps that drew mass attention to him.

How 9ice arrived.
Not many knew that the star artiste and man of the night Abolore Agbolade Akande aka 9ice had already arrived the Bako estate neighborhood since 4pm and was cooling his feat inside one of the exclusive rooms titled Jasmine Royale, named after Dayo Adeneye’s first daughter from first wife Folashade (He named rooms inside the hotel after his numerous children, Jasmine, Nicole, Bryan and Ashley). 9ice was said to have arrived since 4pm under heavy police and military security who took strategic position around the hotel to ensure maximum security of the artiste.  With him inside the hotel were executives of his management company, Dicotyledon Entertainment ltd under the leadership of Music management guru, Anthony (Don T) Anifite and Gabriel C. Ojini of Seekers TV soap Opera series who is in charge of special duties at Dicoltyledon Entertainment Ltd with a couple of his Body Guards.

Klever Jay shakes the hall
The first entertainer who took the Deejay on break was Igboro ti Daru crooner, Klever Jay who took the microphone at some minutes pass 10 pm (10:36pm precisely) and gave a very unique account of himself as crowd of fun seekers surged forward to ask for more. He gave few of his popular tracks and made a mad rush with his hit track “Igboro Ti Daru”. When he dropped the Igboro ti Daru track, the whole venue went berserk with fans asking for more.  By the time the Ogun state born hip-hop star left the stage the venue has taken a new charge with fans asking for more while the VIPs just kept their cool for the 9ice time

Osomo too
His name is Oluwatosin Anifowose but he is famously known as Osomo in the entertainment circle. This very handsome fair complexioned guy was the next act that nearly brought the roof down after Klever Jay as he gave a good account of himself in terms of raps music and other presentation. He left the crowd clamoring for more action.

The Ilaje Boys didn’t slack
Another group of young men who dazed everybody with their talents was the Eyinla Entertainment Group made up of three young men from the Ajegunle-Ikorodu West Side. These boys who said they represented the Ilaje-Ondo state crowd living in the water side area of Mile 12 and Ikorodu Road displayed their talents to the best. The leaders of the band are Mr. Eyinla Kalakonga and Sunnex; they made some Yoruba Hip Hop raps that made many keep their applause base up, up, up. Those guys were really creative.

And Jaywon Baba took charge
By 11:25 pm when big act and This Year (We Making Money)  crooner, Jaywon took over the music stage, it was already a charged house asking for more and Jaywon not only gave more but took them to the next level with his numerous tracks which elicited applauses, shouts of praise and fun surge among the crowd of fun seekers. It was such a huge moment as the act took the crowd  on a voyage of his various hit tracks but not until he sang his famed hit track THIS YEAR did everyone left him alone. He left the stage with more fans asking him to stay than those who want him to leave. He was a success story that night and he got lots of patting from MTN big boy Adedolapo Bamgboye aka Ade Dollar. When you see Jaywon land MTN Deal, don’t be surprised o.

The Minjin Fever
Minjin Sexy the music act was the next stage star at the event as he not only nearly brought the roof of the bar down but equally nearly stripped pants down with his creative music style which revolves around women and their beauty. The sexy crooner who hit the stage at 11:45pm did so much by storming the crowd and dragging out some pretty, weighty ladies who were encouraged to dance in favor of his sexy lyrics. Some of them danced and danced and even when the artiste left the stage the whole show graduated into a dancing competition which was quickly hijacked by MC Don as some ladies won several gifts including wads of dollars from some big boys who cherished their dance skills (Don’t let us mention their names as they might be reading with their wives right now) Of course, some won something bigger than dollars as they quickly launched their own massage parlors in the early hours of the morning (See what going to 9ice show can do to a beautiful girl?)  It was such a fun-filled performance by Minjin and for the records he was the only artiste that was sprayed with wads of naira notes by notable personalities like ID Ogungbe and other big boys as his girls come dance with me strategy also graduated into a life show with gifts won by many beautiful girls who danced their waist out to the admiration of celebrities.

….And The Nice One came to town
By the time 12 midnight came and there was no sight of the star of the night 9ice, it became a heavy sigh for many as they wondered what could be happening to their expectation. By then, the house was already filed with over 2500 crowd of fun seekers bursting into the sides where dignitaries and VIPs were seated expecting the man of the night. No one knew 9ice could appear from the side of the hall where he appeared from like an angel on a divine mission. But when the artiste finally appeared with a team of heavily built body guards guiding him into the hall from the very rear end of the bar, there was wild uproar in the house as voices raised in welcome of the super star of the night. 9ice opened the stage with his star track STREET CREDIBILITY as the hall erupts in joy at the sight and voice of 9ice.

9ice lectures Deejay Fremedy
Sighting 9ice this night, one could see an element of Fela Anikulapo Kuti and a kind of super deity image resting on the artiste as he was in charge of his lyrics, his melody and his personality, driving the crowd crazy in and out of moods. But one thing that caught the attention of many was the way 9ice charged and lectured the Deejay, Deejay Fremedy not to ever super impose techno-expressions on his tracks but should allow them to play normally as he was capable of miming the songs without any techno expression. On three occasions 9ice stopped and cautioned Deejay Fremedy to always let his lyrics go normally without techno-hyping it. Seems someone needs to take some lectures in Deejay engineering from 9ice and Fremedy was lucky to be a student this very night.

Big boys struggle for 9ice’s tracks
It appears that majority of the big boys on seat were all 9ice fans as they sang along with him all his anthems words for words. One of them, London big boy Ayo Shonaiya of R-70 Records was the most visible of the fan club. In fact he was the chairman of the club this night as he nods his head, mimed and intermittently dashed to the stage to tap the artiste’s head for dropping an anticipated number. However, the likes of Howie Tee, Kingsley James and MTN Dolapo Bamgboye with his friend, ID Ogungbe made so many demands for various tracks that catch their fancy. At times, the artiste had to throw it to the house for him to get the nod to play the particular number that carries the highest votes from fans. The crowds kept raising their voice asking the artiste to sing a familiar track that caught their imagination and for the artiste, it was almost always a herculean task to know which to drop or which to rise but anytime he raises a track, the house goes crazy with high enthusiasm suggesting they enjoy his flow.

Why 9ice divorced Shalewa
As if being sensitive to the young ones among the crowd of fans, when a group in the crowd demanded that the artiste drop one of his sex-sensitive tracks BO KINI YEN (Shalewa Se Mo Ti Fe o ri?) where he asked girls to strip down, 9ice simply declined saying “That one is too hard for this crowd now”. And that was how it ended and the proposal for Bo kini Yen died on the spot.

 Yeye Caroline Adeneye’s best track revealed
Although 9ice tried as much as possible to assuage the ego and emotion of his host the Adeneyes when he rendered the song “On our Wedding Day” where he encouraged D-One and Caroline with other male patrons who came with their real spouses to come out and dance to the admiration of the crowd. Of course it worked as Carol and her husband, D-One stormed the stage and danced their heart out with two other couple who joined the train. But that track seemed not to catch the interest of D-One’s wife. But the moment 9ice sang the track “E fi won sile, e je kan maa so lo” (Ohun to ba wu anybody lo’le fenu won so…bebe o ni gba, bebe is too much) Yeye Caroline Adeneye stormed into her best mood and danced her heart out with 9ice. It was such a wonderful sight as the Number 2 of DC Suites and Bar danced her heart out with 9ice. Many wondered how the Edo born lady was able to understand the melody and message behind the song. She really entertained everyone with her dancing skills and her hubby had to take a seat and watched how 9ice “snatched” his wife off his arms in ten minutes. What music can do, no man can tell.

And NDLEA Ambassador Dayo Adeneye held his grand
Maybe some fans didn’t realize that the owner of the new Hotel and bar, Ambassador Dayo Adeneye is a Nigerian National Drug Law Enforcement (NDLEA) Goodwill Ambassador as they continuously asked 9ice to sing a particular track “To the Ganja” where they can shark their Ganja (Indain Hemp) in public but when 9ice asked if smoking of Indian hemp was permitted in the arena D-One with a very straight face rejected the offer. He said it was not allowed at all. Before that moment, few hours into the show, there were severe gun shots by mobile police men who arrested some hooligans who smuggled cannabis into the event place and they were simply arrested and taken out of the place in a jiffy. That is the lesson of leadership for all entertainers and role models.

And 9ice closed the stage with Gongo Aso
At the end of his two hours thirty minutes performance, which started with hit tracks like “Street Credibility” “Photocopy” “No be mistake”, “Everyday” “Gbamu-Gbamu”, “Life Drama”, “Angeli Ton Pinre”, “To the Ganja” etc, the star artiste of the night closed stage with his famous track Gongo-Aso. And how 9ice stormed off stage is another unique lesson for all stars on how to save self from crowd growling after a great show. 9ice simply asked some fans who could sing the track to come out and take the microphone and by the time they were all exchanging the microphone trying to outdo each other, 9ice was out of the crowd while Deejay Fremedy continued the show till fade.
