Naira Marley takes over Ikeja City Mall for Access the Stars

Naira Marley

Fans of Naira Marley on Friday gathered in huge numbers to witness his performance at the Access the Stars concert in Lagos.

It was an enormous turnout at Ikeja City Mall as hundreds of ‘Marlians’ filled the air with ecstatic screams and smoke.

Others star performers were Wande Coal, Niniola, Mayorkun and Skiibii.

It was, however, obvious that the crowd came out to see Naira Marley whose popularity has been boosted in no little way by his prosecution for alleged cybercrime by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The buzz and frenzy around the Ikeja City Mall car park were as a result of anticipation built over six months of hunger and craving by fans of the 25-year-old.

It was the first time he would perform hit songs like ‘Soapy’, ‘PXTA’ and ‘Mafo’ on stage in Ikeja.

Fans got the chance to display their love for Naira Marley as they threw themselves around in wild movements of startling dance steps.

With a total prize worth N150 million, Access the Stars is heading to Abuja, Calabar, Owerri and Onitsha in the coming weeks.
