Considering the vast number of talents we have in the country, with limited performance opportunities, and no platform to share their projects, these talents are more than grateful when performance/airplay opportunities present themselves.
The Basement Gig provides an avenue for new and emerging acts (solely), to showcase their talent in a vibrant atmosphere, and also an avenue for possible networking for both talents, managers, music bloggers, and generally, people in the music industry.
The event which happens the third week of every month, had its 8th edition on Friday 21st July, 2017. The event featured artists like Wavy the Creator, D-O, Yonda, Jinmi Abduls, and Hanujay who gave stellar performances to their hit tracks. There were surprise performances by Tinny’s Dapo Tuburna and another new act, King Bernard. The crowd was nothing short of supportive, as they were obviously having a good time, singing and dancing along to each performance, back to back.
Deetunes, made a second appearance at The Basement Gig, (having showed up for the 3rd edition), BOJ was also present, and the Guest DJ, music producer TMXO didn’t disappoint, as he serenaded guests with hit songs before and after each performance. The Host, OAP, Kemi Smallzz, held it down, as usual. It was definitely a fun night, as the crowd confessed, they couldn’t wait for the next edition.
