"It is great to have Davido as our guest at the show. We are glad to launch the album that we believe will add more weight to Jah Prayzah's growing career.

Organisers of the show, 2Kings Entertainment, said they agreed to bring Davido a day earlier so that they have time for rehearsal.
"We usually bring in the artist on the day of the show but this time we will have Davido a day before the show. We want to make sure that the show becomes an event to remember and we will do our best to facilitate what the artistes request for. There are a number of acts that will be on stage and we are taking each segment of the show as a special act. Davido did well the last time he came and it will be a more special event because this time he has a collaboration with a local musician," said Dee Nosh of 2Kings Entertainment.
Other artistes that will take part at the show include Andy Muridzo, Ex-Q, Natty O, Diamond Boys and DJ Iroq, Dee Nosh said tickets for the show are already selling well.
