WEDNESDAY, October 15, residents of 1004 Estate, situated on Victoria Island, got a thrill as Inspiro Productions brought its Play @ 1004 featuring stellar performances from artistes from highlife, jazz, poetry and every genre of arts and entertainment.
Held at the tennis court of the 1004 Estate’s Club B, where a mini stage had been set up to create the right ambiance for the evening, artistes on the bill were ecstatic.
An hour behind schedule, the show kicked off with Adeh, an afro jazz guitarist. Adeh set the trend for other performers to follow, teasing the audience with his rhythmic tunes. One of the songs that got the audience hooked to his groove was his interpretation of Eddie Kwansa, a popular theme song of the 90s TV sitcom The New Masquerade. Other artistes who performed at the event were Lekkihood Finest, Obadice, amongst others.
The female artistes used their vocal abilities to thrill the audience. Starting with the new sensational personality on spoken word, Titilope Sonuga, the audience were awed by the young engineer. She stirred provoking thoughts as she flawlessly delivered one of her piece I come from a Place-Lagos, a narrative that clearly depicts the lifestyle of its residents, painting a clear picture of hustling and bustling in the city.
Other artistes who performed included Dapo Dina, the afro jazz pianist, and Agboola Shadare, another iconic jazz guitarist who drew the curtains for the night with Joe’s I Wanna Know.
