Popular Nigerian comedian, Mc Shakara officially got his comedy show to the main stage yesterday, 28th of June 2015, at the Muson Centre, Onikan – Lagos.
The show tagged, Mc Shakara and The Gang, was billed to feature AY, Gordons, Funnybone, Elenu, Ajebo, Emeka Smith and Ushbebe. Then the icing on the cake would be from music stars like Ice Prince, Harrysong, Oritse Femi, Lil Kesh, Skales, Cynthia Morgan, Mc Galaxy, Dija and many more.
However, the weather was not in their favour as it rained almost all day which warranted the late kick off of the event. But about 6: 30 pm, Olu Jazz (a saxophonist) took to the stage with an opening performance. The audience didn’t really respond to him as they seemed anxious to get to the crux of their mission which was to get their ribs cracking with jokes.
The first comic act, Mc Shaggy, saved the day and eased the already building tension and from that moment on the audience totally forgot about the time. Other acts like Emeka Smith, Ushbebe, Pencil, Ajebo, Funnybone, Acapella and Senator did justice to their performance as well.
Elenu’s performance didn’t resonate well with the crowd as he made use of swell words and threw ‘shades’ at the audience. The height was when he said “Melvin, You go BBA, Money you no win, Dilish you no FUCK… I dey vex for you o”: referring to Melvin Oduah (Nigeria’s Big Brother Africa ‘The Chase’ representative). I thought it was uncalled for and he was hitting below the belt. However, Klint de Drunk and Gordons saved the day again because at this point the audience were already looking at the time again.
Klint De Drunk came on stage and in a hilarious manner, he brilliantly fired back at Elenu and got the crowd laughing again. Then, he invited Gordons and for a minute we saw the visual representation of the concert theme (Mc Shakara and the Gang) on stage. It was Klint Den Drunk and Gordons on one side, then Elenu was joined by Mc Shakara and Acapella.
Their performance liven up the atmosphere and when they were done the audience couldn’t stop screaming and cheering for them. And then, it was time for musical performance and Cynthia Morgan, Harry Songz and Lil Kesh came through.
AY Makun, Ali Baba, Timaya, Yaw, Nedu of Wazobia FM were on ground to show their support for Kenneth Agberia aka Mc Shakara.
