Glo Slide & Bounce Ignites Port Harcourt

The Glo Slide & Bounce Concert ignited the Aztech Arcum Events Centre, Port Harcourt last weekend with performances from music stars like P-Square, Lagbaja, Boy Burma Boy, M.I, Waje and Omawunmi.

It was a 10-hour night of fun and entertainment as the music acts thrilled fun seekers in turns. One noticeable factor that distinguished the Port Harcourt edition of the Glo Slide & Bounce Concert from other shows that had held in the city was the flawless fusion of music, dance and comedy with a very participatory audience.

Flavour, the Enugu State-born singer who made his debut appearance in Port Harcourt at the show, was at his best. He engaged the audience all through with his superlative performance.

The over 2,500 members of the audience were held spell-bound by the legendary saxophonist, Lagbaja, who thrilled with different African folklore songs. The duo of Peter and Paul of P-Square fame added the icing to the cake with their repertoire of monster hits.

The fifth in the series of nine shows organised by Globacom to celebrate and introduce the new Glo Ambassadors to the people, the Glo Slide & Bounce Concert in the past five weeks has carved a niche for itself as a thriller that is a must.

In the next three weeks, the concert train will move to Calabar, Uyo, Lagos and Abuja.
