The 2012 Edition of the Koko Concert took place last night in Lagos. The show was Hosted by Idris Elba, Basketmouth and Bovi, the musical lineup featured Tinie Tempah, D’banj, Idris Elba, Naeto C, Big Sean, Pusha T, Iyanya, Ajebutter 22, DRB Lasgidi, Ice Prince, Kay Switch and many more stars.
Koko Concert, which was meant to commence at 7PM kicked off at 10:24PM with comedians Baskethmouth and Bovi doing a tremendous job by keeping the crowd hyped up for the upcoming performances.
At 12:24, the show host Idris Elba was introduced on stage. The UK actor was however not in is element or rather seemed not to connect with the crowd. It remained that way for the entire show.
Wizkid and 2face who had been earlier announced to attend and perform at the concert were missing, while many guests, including Seyi Shodimu, Darey and Banky W reportedly turned back, after trying for hours, to get to the venue.
Apart from the thousands who witnessed the mishaps live, a live internet broadcast by GTbank’s Ndani TV helped showed the shame to millions all over the world, with many giving real time negative feedback on Twitter and Facebook. D’banj trended for hours, with many Koko Concert related hashtags also trending locally on Twitter.
It is still a hot topic on Twitter with hashtags like #KokoConcert, #KokoConcertWalkofLife, #KokoConcertSurvivors becoming trends for the day. Fans are still talking about the show, describing their best performances and how they made it out of the venue.
No word yet from D’banj. But you can enjoy more pics from the show when you continue...
