Olamide Adedeji, indigenous rapper, says he’s confident that his fans would come out in their thousands for his concert scheduled to take place at Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
Briefing journalists on Tuesday ahead of the December 17 concert, the rapper was asked if he would be able to fill up the stadium, and he responded by saying the “streets has always been loyal” to him.
“The connection I have with my people is genuine, it is organic and anyone who identifies with real will be present,” he said.
The rapper said some of his colleagues will turn up to support him but, however, failed to divulge any names.
She said: “My colleagues that have supported me in OLIC 1,2 & 3 will be there to perform.”
Olamide’s manager, Alex Okeke, assured that the concert OLIC would live up to its hype.
“We promise to have a concert that will be forever in the minds of many. Lagos is number one in entertainment in Nigeria and Africa,” he said.
“Bringing OLIC to a more spacious place like Teslim is a good thing for us; it’s about taking it to another level.”
Adebimpe Akinsola, the acting commissioner for tourism in Lagos, said the state chose to support the concert in a bid “to promote entertainment and using it to drive tourism in the state”.
He said: “At the inception of Ambode’s administration, he promised some cardinal economic drive to boost the state economy which is “T.H.E.S.E’’ Tourism, Hospitality, Entertainment, Sports and Excellence.
“Olamide’s show falls within this and we are aware of the crowd that this show will attract to Lagos and maybe expecting more guests from all over the world next year.
“We have been supporting entertainment for some time now, people can see our intervention in supporting the Nollywood and others and now Olamide brought into the vision.”
The annual Olamide Live In Concert, now in its fourth year, previously held at the EKO Hotel & Suites.
