The foursome will join Nigeria’s best stand-up comedy acts and musicians such as the legendary Ali Baba, Basketmouth, the sensational twins, PSquare, Wande Coal, the great saxophonist, Lagbaja and a host of other talented comedians to delight Nigerians as part of activities marking the 10th anniversary of Globacom.
Basketmouth said that before the Glo Invasion LOL, “the practice has always been for Nigerian artistes to travel abroad to perform while these foreign artistes hardly come to perform in Nigeria. I cannot even recall in my experience in the industry where any A-list American comedian has come to perform in Nigeria. So, this is a big plus to Globacom, a company that has done so much to promote entertainment in this country.”
; a company that has opened a lot of opportunities to the Nigerian artistes to showcase their talents and make a living from it.”
He further explained that the show is free. “All anybody who wishes to attend the show needs to do is to recharge his or her Glo line with at least N1,000 and text LOL Lagos to 33001 and the invite will be sent to the person”.
Globacom had in a statement issued penultimate week in Lagos said that it is putting the show together to demonstrate that “there is no limit to the extent we can go to delight our numerous subscribers”, adding that the international artistes would also perform in Abuja on October 26.
