Nigerian rising star Yinkz stormed Monrovia the capital city of Liberia last week in a sold out beach side holiday concert at the famous Bernards Beach with fellow Nigerian superstar Chidinma, and the MTB Base crew.
They were hosted by Liberia’s own superstar F.A who performed many of his hits with the crowd singing along almost every lyric to his songs.
A day before the main event, Chidinma and Yinkz were also hosted by Liberia’s most popular radio station Hott107, and they both got a chance to speak with world famous DJ Blue who got them talking about their art and future plans with music and their careers as entertainers.
On the day of the actual event, the party begun at 11am with local acts and comedians thrilling the crowd until about 7pm when the first of the 3 headliners Yinkz hopped on stage and did “Recharge” his debut single. His performance was then followed by Chidinma who performed a few of her hits like “Emi N Baller” and “Lorry” before F.A took over and closed the night with a couple more of his hits, and then a double take of the concert theme song “Desire” which also features Chidinma.
For everyone involved this was a first in many dimensions. It was the first time MTV Base would visit Liberia for filming and also the first time for Chidinma and Yinkz to visit and perform in Liberia. When asked what his best take away from the trip was Yinkz said “The people!...I mean what can I say, they are just too real and were genuinely excited about F.A their superstar and about us Nigerians as well. The Liberians had ONLY good things to say about Nigerians, so that was good for a change”.
Relatively unknown in Liberia before the event, Yinkz managed to amass some fans after his performance and time with the people of Liberia as he hopes the next time the fans in Liberia would also sing along while he performs.
