#OLIC4: Olamide Shuts Down Lasgidi, Hosts 'The Real Lagos Party'
Not only did he cause traffic in Lagos on Sunday November 17, Olamide's OLIC4 added the spice to the many end of year events that rock Lasgidi.
The event was the fourth edition of his Olamide Live In Concert (OLIC4), and the first time it will be done outside Eko Hotel in Lagos.
It was an event for the people and by the people.
The venue - Teslim Balogun Stadium - provided the right atmosphere for the numerous Badosneh fans who could not afford the more expensive 5,000 Naira charged in the earlier editions of OLIC.
The fans started trooping in as early as 11am for a 12noon event, defying the scorching sun to get entertained by the new leader of the 'Wobey' movement.
A bigger venue meant a bigger audience and more security to drive away the fears of all those who were attending.
The stadium is close to two notorious places (Shitta and Ojuelegba) known for its Agberos who are always high on Indian hemp.
The security was so tight, that even if a fly tried to attack the event, it would be put down by the armed Police, DSS, customs officers, soldiers and the Lagos Neighborhood Safety Corps.
The Lagos state government, which endorsed the event, even threw in a police helicopter to increase the safety dimensions.
To ensure that no one got stabbed or attacked with a dangerous object, fans who came for the event were not allowed to carry anything sharp or heavy, so combs, bottles, drinks of any shape or size were disallowed, and the stern looking security details thoroughly searched the crowd.
Unlike earlier reports that people might not turn out because the regular ticket cost 1,000, as against Phyno who sold tickets for his Phynofest for as low as 200 Naira. Lagosians did not disappoint.
What started as low trickles increased as the sunset, and the party lovers whose revelry are mostly unleashed as the day closes, poured out in their numbers to be entertained.
One super 'sneh' Governor Akinwummi Ambode watched from a private booth.
The crowd felt that they were too far from the action, so most people at the venue left their seats to move closer to the stage.
The energy from the stage, sent shock waves through the sets for each of the performing artistes, which swiftly moved by.
From the old school came Baba Fryo and Daddy Showkey to the long list of new school that included: Mavin's first lady Tiwa Savage, Efe, Terry G, Ojjay-Wright, Mz Kiss, DB, Fefe, LAX, Ichaba, K9, Airboy, and Wavy TheCreator, Lamboginny, Hazard,Teni, Oladips, CDQ, Myro and Moblow, all kept the audience on their toes.
When Olamide got on the stage to take the concert 'home' and he killed it.
He did not only give audiences back to back songs from his earlier albums, he also invited the dancers from the popular 'WO' video to crown a great outing, where there was never a dull moment, and it was worth its weight in gold.
No one is sure how many people were at the 25,000 capacity stadium, as most of the guests at the concert stood in the field close to the stage.
It will be a record attendance for the YBNL boss who did not only take his time to thrill his fans, but also got more than 12,000 people in one place with many more, outside the event which eventually ended at 9pm.
He left the crowd craving for more. Say hello to OLAMIDE- THE NEW KING OF THE LAGOS PARTY!!!
