2Face’s AWAY & BEYOND CONCERT Hits Port-Harcourt.
The sequel to the just concluded album launch and concert for 2Face’s fifth studio album tagged ‘Buckwyld and Breathless: Away and Beyond’ is set to hit Port Harcourt come June 8. The Now Muzik/ Hypertek production which will be in partnership with Grafton and Yibs Ensemble will hold at the Hotel Presidential by 9pm. The concert which is proudly sponsored by Airtel will be hosted by Andre Blaze and Spaceman. Tickets for the event are available for purchase at www.afritickets.com as well as the concert venue.
The concert, which first held in Lagos in 2010 and has been launched in London (November 2011) before coming back to Lagos this year, will be making only its first appearance in Port Harcourt. The scripted production, which usually has 2Face as the only act, will this time out feature an array of stars that include Timi Dakolo, Burna Boy, Korkormikor, Dammy Krane, Rocksteady, Mr. 2Kay, Tha Ibz, Big Mouf, Ijaw Boyz All Starz, D’Beat, J. Martins, Sunny Neji and Faze.
The album ‘Away and Beyond’ which was released to critical acclaim has seen the lead single titled ‘Rainbow’ topping all the charts since it was released. The song which was written and performed by 2face Idibia, was produced and mixed by Femi “Femdouble” Ojetunde and Olubunmi “G$oL” Afolabi for Femdouble Entertainment and mastered by Adrian Morgan for Timeless Mastering, NY.
Without any doubt the most accomplished artiste of his generation, 2Face Idibia put out his first recording Body & Soul as a member of the trio Plantashun Boiz in 1999. Thirteen years later, having gone through more ups and downs to panic even a seasoned stockbroker, the artiste has emerged a newer, stronger brand winning several awards for all of his past releases.
2Face’s ‘Away and Beyond’ is available in CD stores nationwide and also on iTunes online music store.
