Telecommunications giant, Globacom has announced the take off of its flagship shows Mega Music Nationwide Tour and Laffta Fest Comedy Show.
While the mega music show will start off at the Marble Arch in Awka, Anambra State capital, on Saturday, April 15th, Laffta Fest will be held at the Aztech Event Centre, Port Harcourt, on Sunday, April 16th.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Thursday, Globacom explained that the threshold for entry had been slashed from the initial N3,000 usage in the previous month to N2,000 to give ample opportunities to youths to participate in the shows.
Globacom said further that the shows are still scheduled for all the 27 cities earlier announced with all the artistes performing as planned.
Nigeria’s top-rated musicians including Olamide, Timaya, Runtown, Di’Ja and Omawumi will feature at the Mega music Tour while the Glo Laffta Fest will parade Africa’s most accomplished comedians including Gordons, Basketmouth, Bovi, Salvador from Uganda, Bash, Arinze Baba and Princewill.
In the same vein, the delectable trio of Juliet Ibrahim, Mercy Johnson and Ebube Nwagbo would anchor the shows with leading showbiz personalities such as Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), Mama G, Kanayo O. Kanayo and Funke Akindele making guest appearances at the shows.
The shows will hold in 27 locations across Nigeria over a period of six months while other shows slated for April include Glo Mega Music Tours in Owerri on April, 22, Asaba on April 29 and Calabar on May 6. Also, the Glo Laffta Fest will hold in Abuja on April 23, Enugu on April 30 and Owerri on May 7.
To attend the Glo Mega Music Concert, the company enjoined subscribers who have recharged up to N2,000 in the month prior to text “Music” and their preferred location to a short code, 207. For example, to attend the music show in Awka, the subscriber should send “Music Awka” to 204, while for the Port Harcourt Laffta Fest Comedy show, interested customers should send “LOL Port Harcourt” to short code 240.
The shows were conceptualised by the telecommunications firm to appreciate its teeming subscribers across the country for their loyalty and support for the Glo brand since 2003 when it first rolled out.
