In fact, some top entertainers and celebs who were enthralled with the veteran’s sterling performance, had to join the music guru on stage to continue the groove.


Surprisingly, the female star performer of the night was South African-born Afro Soul crooner, Kalifonia, who flew all the way from Johannesburg to be part of the lovely event that serenaded Lagos and its environs while it lasted.


The sexy entertainer, who reminded many of the late Brenda Fassie, wowed the star-studded audience with her electrifying performance and well choreographed sensual dance steps, which kept the men salivating and asking for more.


Ghana based dance hall star, JKL4Real, further revved up the evening of premium entertainment with three hot songs from his sophomore album.


The scintillating evening of razzmatazz, glitz and grandeur continued with dazzling performances from Ebele, the female flutist, talented thriller, TJ Sax, Niger State-based rising act, Early Man and wave making Afro pop singer, Kesh Ofuobi.


Also, two leading comedians of the federal republic, D’Lectura and Mr. Makati, were exceptional in their delivery of jokes and jibes to the admiration of the cheering audience.


Meanwhile, earlier in his welcome remarks, the founder of Bowler Hats Bash, Mr. Azuh Amatus, thanked all the invited guests, performing artistes and partners, for standing by him and his team.


Azuh, who is also the publisher/editor-in-chief of Daylight.ng, further called on corporate bodies to support the annual event, which he said had become part and parcel of calendar of national entertainment events organized to celebrate Nigeria’s Independence annually.


“Bowler Hats Bash is our own way of celebrating and rejoicing with Nigeria and Nigerians on her Independence, every October 1.

We are calling on well meaning Nigerians and corporate bodies to support and sponsor this unique and proudly Nigerian product cum initiative. Our dream is to export Bowler Hats Bash beyond our shores in no distant time’’
