The expansive Michael Okpara Square, at the Independence Layout, Enugu was filled to the brim as Yudala Coalfest Zero overwhelms the city on Saturday, reports ITRealms.
The event, ITRealms gathered attracted a number of distinguished guests including the Governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi; Deputy Governor, Hon Cecilia Ezeilo; Deputy Senate President, Dr. Ike Ekweremadu; Chairman, Zinox Group, Leo Stan Ekeh, Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Enugu State, Hon. Rita Mbah as well as members of the Enugu State House of Assembly.
The Yudala Coalfest Zero Gravity, ITRealms gathered also attracted attendance figure of over 120,000 and saw the security forces struggling to contain the huge crowd present.
The event – which kicked off with a series of striking performances from a plethora of upcoming artistes – was remarkable in terms of the variety of entertainment on offer for the audience. From a nostalgia-inducing performance from One World, the Nigerian Afro-Rock Group of the 1970s who rolled back the years with a masterful delivery of some of their timeless songs, through the indigenous flavor delivered by a local flute player, the crowd gathered in the Michael Okpara Square were treated to a memorable night of sublime entertainment.
One after the other, the strong cast of artistes on the roll-call for the night took their turns to raise the excitement even higher.
Mr. Raw who led the way, did not disappoint as he churned out some of his most popular songs signposted by his latest release – Blessing – which had the crowd singing along. With David Grey delivering another well-choreographed performance and Naeto C taking the engagement levels even higher by mingling with the crowd, the atmosphere in the Michael Okpara was super-charged by the time the Osinachi crooner, Humblesmith took the stage with his live band to get everyone dancing to the pure sounds being dished out.
From then on, the event reached a fever-pitch with the introduction of Zoro whose dancers serenaded the audience with a gravity-defying dance routine of the hit song – Ogene. Zoro’s performance, which had the crowd asking for more, set the tone for Founder/Vice President, Yudala, Prince Nnamdi Ekeh to deliver a brief vote of thanks and introduce the night’s headline artiste, Flavour.
As expected, the talented singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist brought the event to a fitting close with a masterful performance featuring many of his most popular songs.
