Odunsi The Engine, Yves Tumor & more slated for Mowalola-curated STUDIO X

Mark April 14 on calendar and get your ticket(s).

Lagos in December is (in)famous for its flurry of events. From music festivals to social gatherings, the final month of every calendar, over the last half-decade, is a raucous affair. As thrilling as it can be, the concentration of these events within a 2 to 3-week span has led to a dearth of mid to large scale concerts and other music-centric events.

April, specifically the Easter weekend, might be providing a viable counterpoint, especially with the prominence of festivals like Homecoming and Gidifest, as well as increasing number of live shows.

At the top of this year’s Easter weekend, accomplished designer, nascent experimental rap artist and Issue 004 cover star Mowalola is curating a live show experience, tagged STUDIO X. Featuring an impressive cast of genre-averse and genre-mashing artists, STUDIO X is being described as an experiential and immersive avenue “where artists and audiences can engage in unique ways.” The bill of performers include American experimental music savant Yves Tumor, musically boundless all-round polymath Odunsi the Engine, Mowalola herself, vibrant rap artists Maison2500 and SGawD, and more.

With a line-up that involves artists who prioritise unbridled expression over conventional musical styles and practices, along with Mowalola’s established nous for curating memorable events, STUDIO X has the right recipes to leave a mark on concertgoers looking to rage and rave. STUDIO X will unfold at Ultima Studios, Lekki, on Thursday evening, April 14, from 6pm. You can get your ticket(s) here.
