What is the unique thing about this concert?
What is unique about the Coded Tunes Reunion Concert is that it is bringing together for the first time all the members of the Coded Tunes Music dynasty supported by friends of the house. That is our story. I will tell the story of the evolution of the Coded Tunes Entertainment Concept from grass to grace to the newly Coded Tunes sign-on artistes who will be unveiled at the concert. They are Gaise Baba, a prolific afro-fusion maestro and Chineke-boy (The Voice)! These two will take the music world by storm!
