Nothing else can be used to describe the huge turnout of guests at Eko Hotel and Suites as popular Nigerian comedian, actor, and presenter Yaw staged the 8th edition of his annual show Shalanga alongside ace comedian, Ayo Makun (AY).
The show was not only star studded but highly attended by fans. Celebrities in attendance include Timaya, Uti Nwanchukwu, comedian Ushbebe, Ali Baba and wife, Ik Ogbonna and wife Sonia, Iyabo Ojo, Ronke Oshodi Oke, Dayo Amusa, Funnybone, Korede Bello, Reekado Banks, Olamide, Don Jazzy, Dr Sid, John Njamah, Solid Star, Harrysong, Burna Boy, Jaywon, Pepenanzi, Dame Abimbola Fashola, Stephanie Linus, Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) among others. Aside from staging a satire that depicts the bad economy of the country, the unnecessary beefs going on in the industry, and celebrity marriages making reference Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz and Omawumi bumped out of a live interview, each music artist took turns to thrill their audience to an amazing stage performance. Killing the music performance for the night was popular YBNL record label boss, Olamide as he was made scheduled to be the last man to perform at the show. The music star thrilled his fans with his hit songs Abule Sowo, Lagos Boys and several others. During his performance, he also gave out his cap to one of his fans as he moved round the hall singing and dancing.
After going back on stage, Olamide decided to indirectly throw jabs at some of his colleagues and some other guests who unnecessarily feel on top the world because they have the opportunity to seat on tables at events. Addressing his colleagues, Olamide disclosed that, they need to start appreciating their fans the more not just by standing on the stage and not moving around especially to the regular section. Olamide also buttressed his point by telling how the servers and security officials need to be well appreciated because they have the power to protect our lives, by making reference to the waitress who has the power to poison our meals. He said this in order for everyone to value and appreciate them not to look down on them because of the nature of their job. The show had lots of media sponsors and partners include Ifeanyi Mba club, Zenith Bank, Arik Air, God Is Good motors (GIG) and much more.
