Few days to the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term, arrangements have been concluded to bring some of Nigeria’s best entertainers to Abuja for an ‘inauguration day concert’.

Simi, Harrysong, Mr Real, Skiibii, Okey Bakassi, MC Tagwaye, Gandoki, are among the top music and comedy stars expected to grace the event.
Ogochukwu Ezealu, the chief executive officer of Montage Africa, told NAN that the event was a way of celebrating the beauty of Nigeria’s democracy and its growth.
“We at Montage Africa are presenting the Inauguration Day Concert to commemorate the democracy day celebration,” he said.
“The concert will hold at Transcorp Hilton Hotel Abuja, on May 29, and will be hosting popular Nigerian musicians and comedians like Simi, Skiibii, Okey Bakasi, MC Tagwaye, and Mr Real.
“Also expected to perform live at the concert are Gandoki, Harrysong and a host of others.
“The event is a way of promoting the beauty of our democracy and the growth it has recorded in recent times.”
Ezeaku said that the concert was also a platform for Nigerian entertainers to contribute their patriotic quota through their performances which would no doubt be educative, informative and entertaining.
He assured Nigerians and invited guests from other parts of the world that the show promised to be a memorable one.
“The presidential inauguration is an event that commemorates one of the most historic development and democratic transition of leadership in Nigeria, and we intend to make it a memorable one here at the federal capital,’’ he added.
