Coincidentally, three of the musicians who will perform in Enugu, Runtown, Phyno and Flavour, grew up in the Coal City. They also developed their music careers there and are regarded purely as “042″ boys, a term used to refer to artistes who grew up and started their musical journey in Enugu, which in the yore days of analog telephony, had the code, ‘042’.
The A-List musicians billed to perform at the show scheduled for 4.00 p.m., according to Globacom, are Korede Bello, Runtown, Tuface, Timaya, Phyno, Flavour and Olamide. Ebube Nwagbo and Uche Jombo will anchor the show, while three other Nollywood icons, Angela Okorie, Patience Ozokwor, a.k.a. Mama G, and Richard Mofe-Damijo, will make celebrity guest appearances to spice up the fun at the Golden Royal Hotel, Enugu, venue of the show.
The company explained that, “Enugu show is loaded and we are hopeful that our esteemed subscribers who will be thronging the venue of the show will have adequate value for their time”.
“Enugu is very strategic to the Glo business and these artistes are ready in all ramifications to give all the people coming for the show world-class entertainment. Incidentally, three of the artistes, Runtown, Phyno and Flavour, had their formative years in the city. For their fans in the city and beyond, the show affords them the rare opportunity of touching base with their icons”, the statement added.
Speaking on the show, Flavour said, “I am very excited to go to Enugu. This is like going back to my roots and I cannot wait to see not only my fans in the city but those old folks we grew up together in Enugu. It is going to be a show like never before for all of us”.
Runtown and Phyno who spoke separately on what their fans should expect at the show declared that they had been looking forward to the show since the bookings were confirmed as it would be a home-coming venture for them.
