Last weekend, classic liqueur brand, Campari took its annual music and cocktail festival, Dare To Mix, to Port Harcourt, giving residents of the Rivers State capital an opportunity to witness the best of music, cocktails, comedy and excitement firsthand.
The D-Day saw Port Harcourt Mall venue of the event brimming with fun-seekers who came out to enjoy delicious cocktails and watch some of their favourite artistes perform live, including 2baba, Kelly Hansome, HarrySong, Duncan Mighty and superstar DJ, Jimmy Jatt.
It was indeed a splendid event. If you missed it, here are some of the best moments for you to enjoy.
- That time 2baba brought Soty to the stage
If you knew great music in 2007, then you couldn’t have missed the beautiful sounds of Port Harcourt-born songstress, Soty and her hit single ‘Malaria’. The song was one of the biggest Nigerian songs in its time, and we were taken on a nostalgic journey at the festival when 2baba brought Soty on stage, while they had an impromptu duet of the hit song.

2. HarrySong’s mind-blowing performance
From the moment HarrySong got on stage, the serial hitmaker made sure that the audience got the best of his performance. He even took things a step further by getting up close and personal with the excited concert-goers.

Campari ambassador, 2baba is undoubtedly one of Africa’s greatest performers and he proved this yet again on Saturday with his energetic display at the Dare To Mix festival. The singer went from delivering his latest club-friendly single ‘Gaga Shuffle’ to soft, romantic songs that had every single woman present oohing and ahhing dreamily. The whole place was on fire.
