Wizkid, Davido, Tiwa Savage and others performed
The highly anticipated Castle lite Unlocks held last weekend as Fans and lovers of American rapper, JCole, gathered at the prestigious Eko Hotel Convention Centre which had being transformed into some kind of icy cold venue, to see the platinum selling rapper perform for the first time in Nigeria.
The show kicked off with the hosts Nigeria’s Do2dtun and South Africa’s Pearl Thusi hyping up the energy at the venue followed by a turntable battle between celebrity DJs, DJ Neptune, DJ Xclusive and DJ Jimmy Jatt.
Performances started with a warm up from Ycee and M.I before the grand entry of the headliners of the show, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid and Davido which speedily increased the vibrancy of the show.
It was a pure live session of good music alongside exceptional and energetic performances as the performers carried the audience along while dishing out their popular songs as the audience sang along.
Finally, the moment everyone had been waiting for came, the hosts encouraged the audience to chant ‘JCOLE’ if they were really excited to see the rapper. JCole came out and it was like an apocalypse just happened. The crowd went wild! The night climaxed to its peak as Cole performed hits after hits and we could not just ‘get enough’
The rapper who had dropped a new album few days before performed songs from the album, told the fans it was alright if they did not know the lyrics and could not sing along. Imagine his surprise when the audience sang his new song ‘ATM’ word for word! It was a priceless moment!
Castle Lite Unlocks was clearly one for the books and we would not forget the experience a hurry. The production was top notch and we did not expect any less from the team, although Wizkid mentioned that he did not likethe sound during his performance but JCole heavily made up for it.
From our observation, JCole was very excited about the turn out and we really hope to see Cole World perform again in Nigeria since he mentioned that he would be back soon.

We would rate the event a 5/5.
