Lovers of contemporary RnB, hip-hop and soul music were on Friday, September 27, 2013 treated to a night of music and dance when the Queen of ‘Hip-hop soul’, Mary J. Blige hit Lagos for the ‘Sisters with Soul’ concert at the Expo Centre of Eko Hotel, Victoria Island.
Put together by Kilimanjaro Entertainment and sponsored by Etisalat, the show also paraded the likes of Seyi Shay, Eva Alordiah, Niyola, Emma Nyra and Ms. Jaie.
One of the may excited fans who attended the show was the Chief Commercial Officer of Etisalat Nigeria, Matthew Willsher, who expressed the brand’s delight with being associated with the show.
‘It is exciting for us as a company to be part of the ‘Sisters with Soul’ concert that featured for the first time in Lagos, Nigeria Mary J.Blige along with other talented female artistes in the country. Mary J, Blige is undoubtedly one of the biggest music icons whose songs cut across generations and we are really glad we experienced her music live here in Lagos’, he said.
‘As a brand, we consider ourselves uniquely different, innovative and dynamic as is evident in the products and services we offer. Music is a huge platform and that is why we lend our support to promoting and celebrating music talent, both foreign and local. Like we always say, Etisalat is much more than just a network’, Willsher said.
