Femi Kuti is a true son of afrobeat Legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. And just like his late father, Femi has written his name in the sands of time when it comes to afro beat music.
Oh yes, the singer showed his prowess at the Eko Atlantic, Lagos, during the unveiling of the Blackrealvolution mystery.
Weeks before the event, various social media were agog with the BlackRealvolution buzz, which was first presented to the public as a movement, spearheaded by Femi and a couple of other notable Nigerian artistes, including multiple award-winning artiste, Tuface Idibia.
It was a big surprise when guests who stormed the Eko Atlantic last weekend, discovered that the Blackrealvolution was actually the re-launch of Legend extra Stout from the NB Plc stable.
Comedian, Gordons, kicked off the event, with rib cracking jokes while the guests got set for an evening of relaxation.
Then came a dance drama titled, First versus Real, which actually depicted a war between Legend and a rival brand.
The drama, no doubt, was actually too long with so many repetitions. However, the guests sat through it all, eager to see how it ended. It ended well, anyway, with the Real winning the First in the drama.
But away from the drama, the crowd was more excited when Femi Kuti came on the stage with his dancers. The sexy dancers could actually make any normal man swoon going by their sexy moves on the stage.
Mr. Hubert Eze, Sales Director, Nigerian Breweries Plc., who shed light on the Legend Extra Stout staniol re-launch said, “What we just unveiled today is the culmination of one of the most successful social media campaigns which kept Nigerians guessing for weeks. We also had a tour bus traversing the length and breadth of Lagos, creating awareness about this unique packaging re-launch. We presented the Blackrealvolution as a movement; and it is indeed a movement for consumers that yearn for more in terms of satisfaction and quality.”
