Wande Coal; 9ice; Kenny Blaq Stun Fans As BLVD Lounge Open In Lekki




Wande Coal was the cynosure of all eyes at the official opening of Billiards Lounge Vape Dance (BLVD) held on Sunday, February 16th  in Lekki, Lagos State.

The former Mo’ Hit star made the event a memorable one with lots of classic songs and good attitudes he dished out to fans from his debut album, M2M.

When the host Kenny Blaq called WC to perform on stage, music buffs thought the ace comedian was joking. Until the one time, Don Jazzy’s admirer mounted the stage in a white Gucci design outfit.

The Black Diamond label singer performed his heart out at the BLVD lounge official opening. He was surrounded and jam-packed with his fans who had not seen him for a long time. He, however, gave a good account of himself.

9ice mounted the stage after Wande Coal. The Street Credibility exponent later called out Jahbless, the director of the lounge, to the stage. Though the celebrant was very shy but sneaked to the scene abruptly. His appearance was welcomed by resounding applause from the crowd.

“I am so proud of you” (Jahbless) 9ice retorted. Many people thought we would not make it in life when we started. I am very happy about your success off and on the entertainment industry. This is the beginning.  Many achievements are still coming your way.  From Ejigbo now to Lekki, people are now seeing the right side of us”, 9ice boasted while holding his longtime friend, Jahbless hands.

9ice pleaded if Jahbless would allow them to perform Ganja, the hit song they recorded together. He instantly accepted and ordered DJ Khoded, who was on the wheel of steel to play the song. It was memorable witnessing both music stars dazzling on stage together after a long time.
