Glo shakes Abuja with Slide & Bounce Concert

Chidynma, Burna Boy and Omawunmi
The Federal Capital City, Abuja quaked with excitement and fun on Sunday evening when top Nigerian entertainers and comedians serenaded residents who thronged the Ladi Kwali Hall, Sheraton Hotel, venue of the grand finale of the biggest concert in the country this year, the Glo Slide & Bounce.
It was a literal take over of night life in Abuja as the Hall was bursting at the seam with the cream of the society from all walks of life including top government officials, business tycoons and thousands of youths in attendance. 
Some of the dignitaries at the concert include Mr. Tony Ojobo, Director of Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission, Prince Emmanuel Jeminiwa, Acting Director, National Lottery and Regulatory Commission, Mr. Osita Chidoka, Corp Marshall of the Federal Road Safety Commission, and Mr. Abiodun Hundeyin, Assistant Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Immigration Services.

Iconic stars who are Glo ambassadors such as Omawumi, Bez, Chee, Lagbaja, Burna Boy, Naeto C, MI, PSquare and Flavour belted out delightful songs to keep the attendees on their feet, dancing throughout the eight-hour show.  It was described as memorable and highly entertaining by a cross section of the audience.  They chorused along with the artistes, danced to the rhythm of the pulsating sounds, and enjoyed lots of hot jokes from the masters of ceremony Basketmouth, Okey Bakassi and Jimmy de hype.  More intriguing is the performance of the sensational twins, PSuare, who gave a superlative "traditional twins competition" as they took time to play all the musical instruments and asked the audience to judge who was the best entertainer. 
The comedians seasoned the show with their witty jokes and tutorials. The Abuja Glo Slide & Bounceconcert marked the end of the eight city musical concert organized by Globacom to reward loyal subscribers for their unflagging support to the brand in the last ten years. 

It would be recalled that the concert kicked off nine weeks ago in the Federal Capital Territory, but due to popular demand by the residents who missed the first edition held at the Thisday Dome, the telecommunications outfit brought the show back to Abuja to satisfy their desires.
