The much-awaited Orezi Experience concert finally went down at Ozoro stadium last Sunday and from what was witnessed at the event that attracted more than 10,000 people from within and outside the state, it was one show that many people would not forget in a hurry.
From the rich list of artistes to the choice of venue and arrangement, the concert, in its first edition, gave the excited crowd more than they had bargained for. The crowd responded and the artistes were in their best elements, dishing out songs that were chorused by the crowd.
For more than six weeks, talks about Orezi bringing his first show down to his hometown shaped discussion in every sense of it. Apart from the glitz and glamour that ushered in the people, there was indeed more to see and talk about in one event that had all the trappings of a world class concert.
Though the event started a little behind schedule, the red carpet was great, with notable celebrities and politicians, most of which were members of the Delta State House of Assembly rocking the scene. While all that was going on, the stars were getting ready to mount the stage as the guests waited in anticipation.
Considering the massive crowd turnout, the artistes on display, quality sound and crowd control, the show would go down as one of the most successful in the recent time. Word for word, in risen crescendo, the crowd was receptive as they danced to the tunes of Solidstar, Ycee, Yung6ix, Erigga, Skiibii, Efe, Soft and Kcee.
The artistes thrilled fun-loving audience by delivering electrifying performances that lit up the night via separate performances. Their energetic stage performances were deafening, as the audience began an unending sing-along from Kcee’s Limpopo to Skiibii’s Sensima; it was an experience worth witnessing.
The audience not wanting to be outdone by the music stars, took up to the stage to display some energetic dance moves as they were rewarded with cash and gifts.
From one end to another, the fun could be felt as the crowd were treated to back-to-back night of unrivalled entertainment. Despite being the first of its kind, the people were ready to party and the stars did not disappoint.
It was like a massive choir rendition when the man the people had been waiting for, Orezi, took to the stage to thrill the audience. The people chorused Orezi’s song line after line and brought the star artiste to emotional state that forced him to stop the music for some moments to regain his groove. They sang every note with him in the presence of the king of Ozoro kingdom and other top dignitaries.
He would later pull another stunt, when he decided to bring his mother on stage as the aged mother prayed for his star boy in her native dialect.
The show ended on a high note with Orezi stating that the people should expect a bigger concert when next he calls. The next edition of the show will come alive in Lagos next year.
