Another star performing at the show, the Oluwa Ni crooner, Reekado Banks, assured that his fans would have unlimited fun as “It is going to be fun all through as all the artistes performing are world-class in their own way and they are all on fire”.

The FESTAC show is a continuation of the 27-city music concert which kicked off in Awka, Anambra State, on April 15 and has gone round 22 different locations such as Aba, Asaba; Calabar; Port Harcourt; Ajah; Victoria Island; Benin, Ekpoma; Owerri; Ibadan; Ikeja; Abuja; Abeokuta; Ijebu Ode; Akure; Enugu; Suleja; Kaduna; Kubwa; Lokoja and Makurdi before coming to FESTAC.
