On Friday, Nigerian music star Asake headlined the Beer With Us festival alongside Ghanaian breakout stars Black Sherrif’ and Seyi Vibez at the Landmark Leisure beach in Oniru, Lagos.
The event was a party mix of beer and music which manifested into a raving party with Afrobeats sounds.
Asake, who has been the rave of the moment since early 2022, did not disappoint his fans as he came with his bangers giving an incredible back-to-back performance with hit songs including Palazzo, Sungba, Mr Money with the vibe, Terminator, Peace be unto you and Joha, amongst others.
Black Sherif also came with his style; the 21-year-old Ghanaian star who gained recognition for ‘First Sermon’ and ‘Second Sermon’ went with the mystical story of “Kwaku the Traveler ”.
He got the crowd to scream out their lungs on the refrain, “of course I fucked up, who never fuck up hands in the air,” and performed a host of songs electrifying the ‘Beer With Us’ stage.
Maintaining the tempo, Seyi Vibez came in with his Yoruba and street lingua music.
The event, attended by Nollywood stars, Lagos socialites and entertainment industry moguls, also witnessed the performance of Nigerian Afro-pop star Ugoccie, who dazzled the audience with her songs while fashionably dressed in her signature purple hair and black cargo pants.
The ladies’ favourite, Iyanya, thrilled the guests with his brilliant dance fusion performance.
With back-to-back music by DJ Spicy and an exciting event host, Eric ‘Mr Hyenana’ Adebamiro, the event saw a side attraction with aspiring talents showcasing their talent firsthand to the mammoth crowd
