The Plantashun Boiz were once the biggest contemporary act in Nigeria. The trio of 2Face, Faze and Blackface were the subject of many a teenage girl’s fantasies with their list of hit songs such as ‘Don’t U Know’, ‘You And I’ and ‘Knock Me Off’ in the late 90s and early 00s.
Following their breakup in the middle of the previous decade, their musical journeys took different routes with all three members going solo. On Saturday August 1 at the IBB Square in Makurdi, Benue State, 2Face and Faze came together for a rare stage reunion at the Star Music Trek 2015 #MakurdiRocksconcert which also featured performances from Yemi Alade, Runtown, Kcee, MI, DJ Neptune, Tony Blaze and Gbenga Adeyinka.
The concert, which was a homecoming of sorts for Benue State homeboy 2Face was packed to the rafters with thousands of expectant fans eager to set eyes on their hometown hero. After performing several of his hits, he surprised the crowd by inviting erstwhile bandmate Faze onstage and then the evening gotreally intense.
