A U.S. music star, Kelly Rowland, on Saturday night performed alongside some Nigerian musicians at the second edition of “Love Like A Movie ’’ Valentine Concert in Lagos.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the concert, organised by Darey Art-Alade, took place at the Ocean View Grounds of the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The Nigerian artistes who featured at the show include Timi Dakolo, Waje, Tiwa Savage, Zaina, Mo Eazy, Eva, Abigail, Muna and Lamborghinny.
In line with the title, the show was centred around love.
It kicked off with a crane dropping a singing Art-Alade on the stage to the excitement of the audience who gave him applauds.
He sang a number of his popular tunes and some evergreen love ballads from different artistes worldwide.
Kelly Rowland dropped tunes from her own personal repertoire and from a collection recorded while a member of the girl group, Destiny’s Child, which also had Beyonce and Michelle Williams.
The crane remained a major part of the show as some of the dancers performed their routines while hanging on it or dangling from it.
A minor hiccup occurred during Kelly Rowland’s performance as some technical hitches with the sound led to her walking off the stage.
She later returned to conclude her performance after Art-Alade tendered an apology.
A U.S. music star, Brandy, was in the audience.
She looked happy throughout the show and danced to some of the tunes.
Brandy was in the country for another Valentine’s weekend show where she would perform with UB-40.
Art-Alade told NAN after the show that he was glad to host the second edition of the show successfully.
He said that music was one of the biggest exports from Nigeria at the moment, and that having such a show in Nigeria was a sign of advancement.
“We have come a long way in our art; we are glad to take it to the world or bring the world to see it here,’’ he said.
NAN reports that the first edition of 'Love Like A Movie’ held at the Expo Hall of the Eko Hotel and Suites on Feb. 14, 2013.
The special guest at that time was a U.S. reality television star, Kim Kardashian. (NAN)
