Find out how colourful the Guinness Colourful World of More Concert was




Described as the biggest and most popular show of the year, the Guinness Colourful World of More Concert, which took place at Eko Expo Centre on Saturday, November 3, was highly anticipated.

That it was a free show even made it more interesting. Parading a star studded list of Nigeria’s finest entertainers such as Wizkid, Ice-Prince, Olamide, Phyno, Davido, Burna-Boy, Dbanj, Psquare, Waje, Chidinma, Tiwa Savage, DJ Exclusive and Bovi as MC, the show was attended by individuals from all works of life with the only restriction being that attendees must be above 18 years.

However, the concert didn’t hold without its buts. Critics questioned several weak points such as security, effectiveness of the backup band supporting performing artistes, crowd control measures among others.

One of the sore points was the crowd control. This became evident while Davido was performing. The Omo Baba Olowo crooner asked for one or two persons from the audience to dance to his Skelewu song. At that point, many people climb the stage and it became over crowded. The artiste had to ask the bouncer assistance to stop them.
The same crowd drama repeated itself again when a young man, unrestricted jumped from the crowd and grabbed Dbanj, while he was performing. An amazed and stunned Dbanj after regaining his composure, had re-invite to share stage limelight with him for five seconds.
One wonders what would have happened if the young man had pilfered on any of Dbanj’s possessions before jumping back into the audience.

The backup band left a sour taste in d mouth of artistes that performed. The situation was so bad that at a point, during Davido’s performance, he had to ask them what was wrong. The same happened during Dbanj’s performance, leaving a lot of people asking if they were not professionals. Observers asked why an artiste like D’banj would ask for “Mobolowon” and the band would play another track.


The unprofessional play from the band was so obvious that to save herself the trouble, Tiwa Savage opted to perform without the support of the band.


However, while knocks have trailed the concert, there were a few aspects where the organisers received thumbs up. These include the standing arrangement for the audience, stage effect and lighting.
Even as some observers in the entertainment industry have pointed out loopholes in the show, attendees can take solace in the fact that arms, noses and skulls were not broken like the situation that took place at Ocean View Victoria Island, Lagos, when a concert organized by Guinness went bad, with people in the audience and thugs throwing and breaking bottles during Femi Kuti’s performance of his song titled “Sewere”.

Then, Guinness had asked the artiste to pay for the damages, but he refused insisting that all the songs he performed at the show were approved by the sponsor.
