The usually quiet Ikeja City Mall car park came alive in a blaze of lights, music and good spirits on Friday December 18, 2015 as the #BASEWHITEXMASPARTY organised by MTV Base dazzled over 2,000 screaming fans with performances from superstar acts like Olamide, Phyno, Wande Coal, Reminisce, Sean Tizzle and a host of other A-list music artistes.
Hosted by MTV VJ Ehiz and City FM OAPs Sensei Uche and Cynthia Okpala, the event kept fans electrified from the beginning to the very end in the small hours of Saturday morning with a mix of DJ sets and performances from established artistes and amazing upcoming talents who thrilled the crowd in the open roof arena nonstop.
Olamide brought the entire venue to its feet with his retinue of hits including ‘Durosoke’, ‘Bobo’, ‘Reggae Blues’, ‘Lagos Boys’ and ‘Turn Up’, which left the crowd in a wild frenzy.
Wande Coal also came on board to mesmerize the audience with the performance of his popular songs My woman My everything, Baby Hello.
Another major highlight on the Night was the appearance of Falz The Bahd Guy onstage, which got the biggest cheer of the night from a crowd that just wanted more and more. He obliged them with several of his hits including ‘Karishika’, ‘Ello Bae’, and ‘Celebrity Girlfriend’.
