Falz, 2Baba, Bella Shmurda, and M.I Abaga were among the music heavyweights that thrilled the crowd at the second edition of the ‘Youth Vote Count’ concert in Lagos on Saturday.


The concert, which is organised by Yiaga Africa, a civil society organisation, in partnership with the European Union (EU), is to encourage more youths to register and vote in the 2023 general elections.

The event took place at the Tafawa Balewa Square on Lagos Island and witnessed the attendance of thousands of youths.

While some of the youths were thrilled by the dazzling performances, others lined up to get their permanent voters card (PVC).


The musicians who performed were Falz, Teni, Bella Shmurda, 2Baba, M.I Abaga, Skibii, Kizz Daniel, Patoranking, Pasuma, Waje, Asake, and Small Doctor.

Small Doctor blessed the audience with his hit tracks including ‘Penalty’, ‘Mandeman’, ‘Believe’, ‘Gbagaun’, and ‘You Know’ while Omawumi regaled the crowd with her angelic delivery of ‘Megbele’ and ‘If You Ask Me’ while chanting ‘Get your PVC’.

On his part, Pasuma, the seasoned Fuji musician, said “One Nigeria is sacrosanct” while Lasisi reminded the youths of the need to get their PVC.


“The youths have a voice! We have to speak up and the only way we can do that is to get our PVCs,” the comedian said.

Speaking at the event, Samuela Isopi, European Union ambassador to Nigeria, said for the youth to make impactful change in the country, they must participate in the electoral system by voting.

“Nigerian youths have the power to make a difference, a positive change. Be part of the process. Make your vote count and stand for democracy,” she said.
