LoudNProudLive presented yet another jam packed edition of the live music showcase featuring the new and improved Skales. Guests flooded into new venue: BUDDAH Lounge, Victoria Island- an intimate and sexy club with high expectation & ready to be wowed by this month’s live offerings.
Starting the programme of entertainment the popular GBT Auditions – with judges: Mercy ‘Omo London’ (Cool FM OAP), Dapo Adeyemi (ceo: Wahala Media) & Nkiru Balonwu (CEO: Spinlet). The Auditions were entertaining & interactive with audience members voicing their strong opinions in reaction to judges comments. ‘Blaque’ emerged as triumphant winner as announced by GBT host Bola ‘The Genie’ Sonola.
Kicking off the main segment, was last month’s Golden Breakthrough Winner, HYCENT who vibed nicely with the live band and entertained the crowd with his energetic dance moves. We expect many great things from Hycent in the future who is clearly a natural born performer. LoudNProudLive continues to seek out the very best of unsigned music talent and give them a platform on which to kick off their careers.
AYO JAY showed us why he’s the hottest new singer on the block as he serenaded the crowd including host MERCY ‘Omo London’ (an audition judge earlier on) with songs including his big hit ‘Available’. He worked the crowd and showed love to the ladies who couldn’t get enough. Next up, LA based bass guitarist and all round rock chick The.FOLAKE who brought a grittier sound to the LoudNProudLive stage. Folake charmed the audience to the point that they were singing along with her for most of her performance, as she strummed along. Her throaty vocals lent themselves to songs about love and heartbreak, something to which many could relate.
Headliner SKALES, introduced himself as the new and improved SKALES 2.0 as he announced his change of management and acknowledged his growth as an artist and performer. The new SKALES lived up to this reputation as he and the live band remixed several classics including ‘Komole’ which had the crowd on their feet, cheering and dancing. Skales rounded up his set with club hit ‘Shake Body’ which brought the house down and truly showed how far he has come and how much potential he has to be a truly great performer.
The SHAKE BODY Edition was a resounding success: full of new talent, some pleasant surprises and the emergence of a new era of SKALES. What a night indeed!
