KultureCentrik: Kollington Ayinla shows why he is still fuji general at 63

Fuji music icon, General Kollington Ayinla, gave a five-star performance at the second edition of KultureCentrik at the Airport Hotel, Lagos on Saturday.

His performance comes after that of waka queen, Salawa Abeni, who was headline performer at the inaugural edition in September.

Baba Alagbado, as Kollington is sometimes called, performed for hours to the delight to the crowd gathered at the hotel’s poolside.

Track after track, the 63-year-old kept his audience captivated with a performance that will inspire envy in younger artistes.

Kollington was joined on stage by his son, Big Sheff, a product of his relationship with Salawa Abeni.

Father and son performed together before the younger man left the stage for the veteran.

Another act on the night was praise singer, Sulaiman Ayilara Aremu, popularly called Ajobiewe.

The Yoruba language poet performed in Oyo, Ijebu, Ijesha, Igbona, Egba and other dialects to the excitement of the audience.

Seyi Solagbade and Kehinde Edunjobi (better known as Kent Oxygen), who were both present at the maiden edition of Kulturecentric in September, delivered a smooth blend of Afrobeat to the delight of all and sundry.

Also in attendance was the Lagos State acting Commissioner of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Adebimpe Akinsola.

KultureCentrik is a collaboration between Kunle Afolayan Production (KAP) and Massimo.

It is scheduled to hold on the last Friday of the month.

The October edition was shifted to Saturday because of the London screening of Kunle Afolayan’s The CEO on Thursday.
