Maleek Berry, the artist that created hits, ‘Kontrol’, ‘Eko Miami’ and ‘Been Calling’ closed out his ‘Last Daze of Summer’ tour at the Hard Rock Café Lagos on Thursday, December 7th to a sold-out crowd. Eclipse Live produced the concert in partnership with the Hard Rock Café.
Opening acts Prettyboy D-O, Odunsi (The Engine), and Wavy The Creator, accompanied by DJ Aye, represented a new wave of artists who are bringing a fresh sound to the Nigerian music game. Odunsi (The Engine) performed brand new single ‘In The Morning’ live for the first time. Wavy The Creator and DJ Aye’s set was so electrifying it caused Eclipse founder Chin Okeke to say, “Tonight, I fell in love with music again.” And that was just the beginning.
The energy in Hard Rock was palpable and the sold-out crowd included fellow musicians Tiwa Savage, Simi, and Starboy Producer’s Sarz and Mutay who all came out to support Maleek and his guest starts.
DJ Spinall and Mr. Eazi surprised the crowd by hitting the stage before Maleek Berry and set the pace for what was to follow. Finally, it was time for headliner Maleek who, backed by a live band and his, Ferrari Frost, took the stage to screams and cheers from the audience. He opened with songs ‘4 Me’ and ‘On Fire’. For the rest of the night, Maleek took the crowd through a journey of hit after hit, many from his “Last Daze of Summer” EP which has single-handedly catapulted him to super-stardom, while also sharing the stage with guest starts Nonso Amadi and Ycee. Maleek and Nonso, who was a surprise guest, performed Juls’ ‘Early’ next Nonso treated the audience to a live rendition of ‘Tonight’.
With Ycee and Maleek Berry in the same building the night would have been incomplete without a performance of, ‘Juice’, one of the year’s best collaborations. Maleek closed the show with a medley of songs, two of which, ‘Pon My Mind’ and ‘Sisi Maria’ are from his upcoming “First Daze of Winter” EP set to be released next month. Naturally, he said goodbye to the raging crowd with a live rendition of worldwide hit ‘Kontrol’.
It was a night Lagos will not soon forget.
