Timaya lights up Enugu with a legendary performance

For fun lovers and fans of great music, last night would go down as one to remember, as Nigeria’s Dance Hall King, Timaya, treated the audience to a great performance, dishing out back-to-back hits as he engaged the audience in an unending sing-along.

As the headline act for Legend’s Real Deal Experience, the “Dem Mama” crooner didn’t disappoint his fans who had turned up en masse at the Polo Park Mall, Abakaliki road, to meet their idol.

The thunderous ovation that followed Timaya’s appearance on stage left no one in doubt as to his popularity amongst the local fans. And true to his street credibility, the self-acclaimed “Egberi Papa One of Bayelsa” did not disappoint.

Armed with a full complimentary live band, an unparalleled stagecraft and a trademark high energy known across the length and breadth of Africa, Timaya delivered an exhilarating performance that would remain indelible in the minds of fun-lovers in Enugu.

There was indeed no dull moment as the fans sang and interacted with the A-List performer while enjoying an endless supply of Nigeria’s first locally brewed stout, Legend. The Tipsy Kelvano band and comedian, De Don also made the event an all-round success with very fantastic performances.

An overwhelmed Timaya said: “Wow! I feel loved. It’s not my first time of performing in Enugu but tonight I feel even more special. I want to say a big thank you to my fans. I really appreciate you guys. And also to Legend Extra stout for this opportunity to interact with my fans on a face-to-face level every year. Big ups to Legend.”

In addition, Legend consumers at the event had a more enriched experience in this edition of Real Deal Experience as they got to watch how Legend Extra Stout is brewed in a simulation room. To also appreciate Legend’s ever-loyal consumers, many went home with exciting prizes like flat screen TVs, generators, refrigerators and many more.
