Nigerian Idol winner, K-peace, Kitwe and Abinibi Groovy Band were among performers who wowed the crowd at the second edition of the African Rhythm concert which held recently at the Freedom Park, Lagos.
The concert which is aimed at promoting African indigenous music and championed by musician and trombonist, Afolaranmi Abiodun Olaoluwa aka Abbey was indeed a thrilling moment for all those that attended.
Anchored by ravishing hostess, Tush B the show kicked off with David Morris singing ‘The Greatest Love Of All’ inspiring the audience to ponder on God’s love for humanity. He ended with ‘Amata.’
As the concert wore on, Hathanda, a guitarist took the second season of the AR concert to another level. The highlight was when a Lagos State University (LASU) 300- level undergraduate, Biodun Haruna, serenaded the audience with a retinue of Apala songs by the late Apala king, Haruna Ishola.
Flugelhorn player, Kwitee and Nigeria Idols winner, K-Peace mounted the stage one after the other to sing their songs.

K-Peace true to his immense potential sang his version of John Legend’s All of Me laced with Fuji and Apala tunes.
Cross Over Artiste, Hess King took the show to the next level dinging different songs like Olamide’s ‘Wo’ and other songs. Abbey, the convener from time to time came on stage to add spice to the performers using his decade of experience of trombone playing.
