There aren’t that many spaces that allow artists to connect directly with their fans in physical spaces. Music incubator and media agency Clout Africa is committed to finding innovative ways to fill that gap. It recently launched the Clout Talk Concert #CTC, one of the first of its kind – Talk Only Concert in Africa.
Rapper and media maestro Blaqbonez was tapped to host the second edition of the Clout Talk Concert. The rapper has mastered the art of driving conversations on social media around his projects and garnered the respect of his peers. There was no better person to take all that online charisma and translate it to a live audience. He took charge at the Space Hub in Lekki Phase One on March 4th, 2022 at the Clout Talk Concert, supported by beverage giant Pepsi, and sponsored by Cadbury’s TomTom holding the attention of a full house for a 5-hour extravaganza with some of Naija’s most charismatic new pop stars.
The guest roster for the second edition of Clout Talk Concert was as diverse as ever and the guests got to join the banter as rapper SGawd, singer Tomi Owo, the charismatic Bella Shumurda, alternative singer Johnny Drille, and ace duo Ajebo Hustlers shared the stage with BlaqBonez, dishing on their careers and music and pulling a few answers of their own out of the concert’s enigmatic host. BlaqBonez kept the conversation fun with the occasional curveball about their relationship with their fandoms and the future of the industry. They were encouraged to interact directly with the guests while Cool FM’s Dj Joenel ran the decks, pumping hit after hit to keep the energy levels up and Fabulous keeping the crowd hype.
“This is our second concert and we’re pleased with the way the Naija music fandom has embraced what we do” Joseph Adamu, head of events at AIM communications and consultant for the CTC remarked.
