Pause. Imagine it’s 2018, and Nigerian music is already pushing towards a global ubiquity, and now, one of the most successful rappers of his time will be performing on Nigerian soil, just like old days. But, there is no need to imagine and all of this is happening real-life.
South African beer company, Castle Lite, is setting up shop in Nigeria later this year and to launch, the company is hosting J.Cole at Eko Hotels next month. Alongside the Dreamville top dog, J.Cole’s show will be accompanied by performances from Wizkid and Davido.
Wanna be a part of Nigeria’s coolest concert? Of course, you do! Just grab a bottle of Castle Lite and you could be front row at a concert with J.Cole @JColeNC, Davido @iam_Davido & Wizkid @wizkidayo. See pack for details. #CastleLiteUnlocks pic.twitter.com/4FBQ9xGKpx
