The Coal city came alive on Thursday, February 14, 2018 as Legend’s flagship consumer engagement activity – Real Deal Experience, hit the beautiful city of Enugu. Popular dancehall and Afro-pop singer, Timaya was on hand to thrill the crowd as he delivered an electrifying performance that left the audience in awe.
The Port Harcourt born entertainer was at his best, switching up the tempo as he delivered many of his hit songs from ‘Ah blem blem’ to ‘Dem Mama’. He also performed songs from his recently released album which kept the fans grooving all night long.
The audience reception was a delight to watch, as all in attendance showed their love for the veteran singer, singing along to every word of his songs. Some members of the audience even coming on stage to dance with the self-acclaimed Egberi Papa 1 Of Bayelsa.
“It’s one thing to sing and entertain your audience, but when they take you on in a sing-along, picking up the song from the first line and singing it all to the end, you feel proud. Trust me, it’s a unique connection and such a humbling experience. I will never take this love for granted. Thank you to my fans, the beautiful people of Enugu and Legend Extra Stout for making this possible. I can’t wait to be back here for another Real Deal Experience,” said the award-winning artiste.
