A concert tagged ‘The Monarch Experience’ will have Nigerian music legends share the stage together for the first time in a long time.
Organised by Temple Management Company, the concert will feature Kwam 1, Onyeka Onwenu, Sir Shina Peters, Queen Salawa Abeni, Bright Chimezie, and Gloria Ibru.
A statement by the organisers read: “Some of Nigeria’s most celebrated music icons are about to set the stage on fire with their timeless songs and stellar live performances at a Live concert tagged, ‘The Monarch Experience’ scheduled to hold on Saturday, December 8th at the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
“The night of rich Nigerian music variety is packaged by leading creative agency, Temple Management Company (TMC), the producers of the highly-successful “Sunny On Sunday – 2016 Concert” marking Juju Maestro, King Sunny Ade’s 70th birthday. It was the same concert that spurned the record-breaking auction sale of the Juju King’s Fender Telecaster Guitar.
“To take the audience on a nostalgic journey are some of the finest to ever rock the stage presenting a cocktail of eclectic genres such as Fuji, Juju, Highlife and contemporary Afro Music. On the line-up for The Monarch Experience are; Kwam 1, Onyeka Onwenu, Sir Shina Peters, Queen Salawa Abeni, Bright Chimezie and Gloria Ibru.”
Mark Redguard, head of entertainment, TMC, said the concert offers more than just entertainment.
He said: “With Sunny On Sunday, we delivered a live music concert experience of world-class scale that can be taken anywhere in the world. We have put in more work because we have set a higher standard for ourselves from what we achieved previously.
“The end goal is to raise the bar with The Monarch Experience and indeed deliver a memorable event that everyone will be proud of.”
