American musician, J. Cole was in Nigeria for the Castle Lite Unlocks on April 27. He graced the stage together with Nigerian superstars like Davido, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, YCee, M.I etc. at the Eko Hotel and Suites.
The most surprising aspect of J.Cole’s performance which he even highlighted on his Instagram post after the show was how overwhelming it was to see fans sing songs from his new album KOD word for word.
Even though many have argued that the hip-hop culture is gradually fading out of Africa paving way for Afro-beat domination, J.Cole’s presence and response proved otherwise. Maybe, our musicians must start submitting certain types of Hip-hop, we love afro-beat, don’t get us wrong. South Africa’s Pearl Thusi and Nigeria’s were the official hosts on the night. Also, DJ Obi, DJ Xclusive, DJ Neptune and Cool DJ Jimmy Jatt provided musical mixes to keep the atmosphere energized.
