Many people believe in the entitlement circle that Abuja has little or nothing to offer in terms of showbiz. And that Lagos; the nation’s commercial headquarters, is the go to place. But unfolding events have shown that The Train is fast moving to change that idea.
The weekly talent and creative arts show organised recently by Shyne Entertainment Company, an Abuja-based entertainment company, is definitely blazing the trail in bringing together music lovers of all ages in an atmosphere of creativity and love. And with a minimum gathering of 150 persons per show, fun lovers won’t be out of place if they chose to call it Abuja’s Industry Nite.
Although still in its pilot phase, but key monitors of showbiz are already excited, because it has hosted several exciting entertainment acts like Classiq (remember King Kong remix?), Morell, Chuk E, Terry Da Rapman, Pherowshuz, CEF and others. Are you in Abuja every Wednesday? Then, visit Silverbird Galleria – Abuja to witness this unique event from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.
Every edition of The Train is recorded in audio and visuals, and packaged as a weekly 30-minute-TV series to be aired on both terrestrial and satellite TV channels. For those familiar with content, The Train brand provides an opportunity for companies, individuals and businesses to share information on their products and services on the platform via a short session within the event referred to as “lifestyle session”.
At the present, the only setback the event has is funding and getting sponsors who can take this exciting project to an ace level.
The Train is simply an effort of Shyne Entertainment Company to showcase and promote creativity by providing a steady supply of entertainment. The fact that it features locally based up-coming artists as well as renowned artists specialised in various music genres, dance, comedy, poetry and spoken word speaks well for entertainment in Abuja.
This is definitely a show to encourage. If you’re in Abuja, make sure you catch the next train.
