WRT was at Naeto C’s album launch on saturday night. The event held at the extremely impressive Club Volar (Jade Palace). Now, let me say this, and clearly too…if you missed this event, you missed out big time! The place was packed with Nigeria’s grooviest elites, organisation was beautiful, everything was well orchestrated and there was lots to drink and nibble on.
If D’banj and the Mo’hits crew introduced ‘mass appeal’ into the Nigerian entertainment industry, then Naeto C and the Storm family are putting the ’swagger’, the ’style’and the ’stease’ right on top of the whole pile. Naeto C thrilled us with some of the hits from his album (title: U know my P) with Africa’s numero uno: DJ Jimmy Jatt working his magic on the wheels of steel;the crowd religiously sang/rapped along with him and it was a beautiful scene to behold.
The crowning point of the night was after thanking everybody, Naeto told the Dj (Jimmy Jatt) to pause the music and declared drinks on the house (Red Bulls and bottles of Moet); the crowd went buckwild (Nigerians love awoof so much). I’m waiting for another party that will beat this…perhaps D’banj’ Album Launch? Fingers crossed*
