MI, P Square, Sammy Okposo, others serenade Uyo residents

The Emerald Event Centre, Uyo venue of the Glo Slide ‘n’ Bounce concert was on Thursday jampacked with Glo subscribers who had great fun.

Top-rated Glo brand ambassadors and “A” list acts  MI, Korede Bello, Sammie Okposo, PSquare and  disc jockey Jimmy Jatt were in their elements as they belted out melodious tunes enthusiastically applauded by guests.

The Uyo Slide ‘n’ Bounce kicked off with select, up and coming acts from Akwa Ibom State showing what they could do in singing and dance. The raw talents pleasantly surprised the audience. Comedian Okon Lagos also put in a cameo appearance on stage to the delight of fans.

The main show of the evening teed off with Nigeria's foremost D.J., Jimmy Jatt, who got the crowd rocking with a blend of old and new sounds from his juke box.

Sammie Okposo gave the show a gospel twist and the audience splurged on the ace gospel artiste’s medley of vernacular and English songs. At this point, the audience refused to sit. Sammie even got some members of the audience to participate in a singing and dancing talent hunt. The audience was really entertained as those who participated in the contest did remarkably well.

Korede Bello was given a standing ovation as the young star hopped on stage. He raised the entertainment bar to new levels as he sang his popular     “God win” song and other popular tunes.

The emergence of African Rapper Number One, M.I. on stage was wildly received by the audience who stood on their chairs.  M.I was simply at his best as he interacted with the fans who also sang along with him, displaying rich knowledge of his compositions.

M.I. stepped off stage when the audience wanted more, but the fans got more than what they bargained for when PSquare came on stage instead.

PSquare held the audience spellbound for about two hours, and the people just soaked in every moment of their performance.  Peter Okoye’s dance steps were unusually magical during the night while Paul's powerful vocal strength enthralled the fans.

At the end of the show, Glo subscribers in Uyo  requested that the company should return with another concert.
