How “everybody loves Ice Prince” went.
‘lovers’ did show love as they turned out for the rapper’s debut album launch which was far from being impressive.
Hundreds of fans thronged the Expo Hall of the Eko Hotels and Suites venue of the album launch last Sunday, to witness the unveiling of the much talked about ‘Everybody Loves Ice Prince”
The show started four hours behind schedule, but the delay did not in anyway dampen the expectation of the elated audience who waited patiently for the show to take -off.
The crowd in the regular stand must have been pleased to hear co-host IK Osakioduwa tell them the VIP section was accessible to those who wanted to occupy the free seats. Apparently, there was a huge void that needed to be occupied. That however just created more anticipation for the show to kick off.
Ice Prince, the man of the night seemed to keep his ‘cool’ all through the show as he blended pretty well with the live band which consisted of his Chocolate City label mates M.I, on the keyboards and Jesse Jagz on the drums. His costumes were very trendy and urban, each gear he rocked stood out.
Other performers, 2face, D’banj, Wizkid, Naeto C, D’prince, Ara, Bez, Tiwa Savage, Samklef, BrymO, w4, oLamide, Davido added the extra spice to liven up the show. South African rapper HHP and Ghanaian tongue-twister Sarkodiewere also well cheered by the crowd which barely filled the hall.
DJ of the night was Beat FM and Choc City in-house jockey DJ Caise while the hosts were IK Osakioduwa and actress Funke Akindele who didn’t fail to give the guests a taste of ‘Jenifa’.
