Aside 2baba, the night also featured several exciting performances from a-list acts including Wizkid, Patoranking, Terry G, Solidstar, Reekado Banks, 9ice, Ycee, Waje, and others. The evening kicked off with the host Soundsultan who performed an acoustic version of his popular early hit “Motherland”. Shortly after the rendition, the host entertained the crowd with a short skit before introducing DJ Jimmy Jatt who kept the crowd moving; playing songs 2baba would not be performing at the show. 2baba singing on stage Photo: #20YearsAKing concert Source: UGC 2baba’s entrance was grand, a mini-documentary detailing his life, music, industry revolution, throwback photos and rise to stardom was aired.

She talked about how he has risen despite shortcomings and rumours. Before the euphoria from that performance died down, 2baba made his second stage entrance to perform ‘Only me’ and ‘Rainbow’. He was later joined by DJ Jimmy Jatt to perform ‘Stylee’. Waje also joined 2baba to perform ‘Frenemies’. It was time for the next act and what an entrance it was. 9ice made his way on stage and the crowd sang along enthusiastically as he performed ‘Street Credibility’, ‘Le fenu’, ‘Living things’ and ‘Ganja Man’.
