This edition which was headlined by MI Abaga and featured performances from various other artists including A-Q, Terry Apala, Blaqbonez, Street Billionaire, Uzi to mention a few.
The highlight of the evening was the crowd getting thrown back in a nostalgia of feelings as they chanted the tunes to MI Abaga’s songs while he gave an amazing performance from his last body of work, Rendezvous, all to the way to Talk About It, – “Lekki”, “Jiggy”, “Short Black Boi'”, “Safe” , ‘Bad Belle’, & ‘Overkillin’ are a few songs he performed.
His performance gave an assurance that there is still a good chance for the hip hop culture in Nigeria as the satisfied crowd cleared up.
The platform – “The Coronation” was established by 100 Crowns (a sub-label dedicated to Hip-hop/Rap) to play a key function for hip-hop artists who rarely have such platforms to perform. In attendance were notable faces including radio personalities Douglas Jenkan, Folu Storms and Kemi Smalls.
