The stage play began in earnest as Yaw and AY excellently interpreted the theme of the stage play ‘Shalanga’ by relating it to the current economic situation of the country. The stage play also highlighted trivial issues such as the country’s poor economy, President Buhari’s frequent travelling and Edible catering making reference to Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz. Top of the performance for the night was a rendition by popular YBNL record label boss, Olamide.
He used the opportunity to hurl jabs at some of his colleagues who he felt were proud. Addressing his colleagues, Olamide disclosed that, they need to start appreciating their fans the more not just by standing on the stage and not moving around especially to the regular section.
Olamide also buttressed his point by telling how the servers and security officials need to be well appreciated because they have the power to protect our lives, by making reference to the waitress who has the power to poison our meals. He said this in order for everyone to value and appreciate them not to look down on them because of the nature of their job.
