The artistes billed to perform at the forthcoming mega shows being organised by Globacom have promised to unleash unlimited fun on Nigerians who turn up for the two shows across the country.
The telecom operator is kicking off with its revamped music concert brand, Glo Slide and Bounce on Saturday August 29, 2015, while the second show, a comedy event, called Glo Laffta Fest, will kick off in Benin on August 30, 2015.
One of the artistes slated to entertain at the shows, Wande Coal, said in a statement that Nigerians “are set to witness the best of entertainment as the Glo slide and Bounce concert and Glo Laffta Fest are not just loaded, but are pregnant with fun.”
“The beauty of it all is that the shows will be rotating around the different locations weekly and for the 11 weeks that the two shows will run, nobody will have a dull moment. I promise you that, it’s gonna be fun like never before”, Wande Coal said.
Also speaking, accomplished standup comic, Okey Bakassi, said “the two Glo shows are a combination of music, dance and comedy and the synergy the artistes are bringing to the shows will leave indelible marks in the entertainment repertoires of the audience. Whoever misses any of the shows, I can authoritatively say, will be missing a huge opportunity to meet the best of the Nigerian artistes and some foreign talents.”
In an earlier statement announcing the shows, Globacom, had promised that the shows would redefine showbiz and change the perception of entertainment in the country as the audiences would be left with lasting impressions.

The two shows will run on Saturdays and Sundays in the locations mentioned above with the Slide and Bounce coming up mainly on Saturdays and Laffta Fest holding mainly on Sundays”, the company had said.
