Flavour, Tiwa Savage, Uncaged at BAFEST


Music lovers over the weekend were given an unforgettable experience at the inaugural edition of the Born in Africa Festival (BAFEST) which held at Eko Atlantic, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Known for state-of-the-art  productions, Livespot 360 run by musician Dare Art Alade and his wife Deola, created a spectacular show that saw trapeze artists performing stunts mid-air, supported by a crane.

Enthralled by the theatrical display, most of the music lovers caught the breathtaking spectacle on their camera phones while screaming with excitement.

The festival also featured some of the biggest entertainers in the country including Burna Boy, Kizz Daniel, Davido and Tiwa Savage, as well as continental stars Awilo Logomba and Sho Madjozi. However, it was the multi-talented  singer Flavour who stole the night away. Performing a mix of his oldest and recent hits, including ‘Adamma’ and ‘Nwa Baby’, the artiste whose set lasted for almost 40 minutes, got the excited crowd eating out of his palms. His stage presence was overwhelming and with the erotic dancers on stage, Flavour delighted music lovers that they literally begged for an encore.

Tiwa Savage brought her diva game to the stage, rocking a tank top tucked into a  cameo short worn over a net leggings. Performing hits like ‘All Over’ and ‘Ma lo’, the Mavin queen was a fan’s favourite of the night.

The frenzy was further heightened by Tiger Beer who were part of the sponsors of the event.

A Tiger corner was set up at the festival, which featured a graffiti photo area complete with a graffiti wall and car for photo opportunities. Guests were also treated to 360-degree videos and photos upon entrance into the Tiger corner.

The curated experience by Livespot for Access Bank was a potpourri of fashion, film, art and music.
Marketing Director, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Emmanuel Oriakhi,  expressed delight in Tiger Beer’s support of the event.

“This has been a landmark year for Tiger Beer. Since its launch, we have sought out ways to bring the brand closer to its consumers. BAFEST presented us with this opportunity, allowing us to introduce Tiger to young, edgy, progressive and passionate Nigerians. We intend to continue on this path and we believe this is only the beginning of what will be a long relationship between the premium beer brand and Nigerian millennials.”

Tiger Beer was launched in Nigeria in April 2017 and has since made giant strides in the Nigerian beer market, positioning itself as the go-to brand for the young, adventurous, Nigerian beer lover.  As part of the year-end celebration, Tiger Beer will also be hosting a party on December 22, at the African Artist Foundation Centre in Lekki. This party is set to feature alternative musical acts in the Nigerian music industry.
