The organisers of the 4th Olamide Live in Concert, “OLIC4,’’ has revealed that the concert will have about 25,000 people in attendance.
Olamide’s Manager, Alex Okeke, gave the indication during a press conference of the concert in Lagos.
The OLIC concert will take place on December 17 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos. It is expected to start by 12 p.m. and end by 6 p.m. The three previous editions were held at the Eko Hotels and Suite, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Okeke said that the concert venue was shifted to accommodate for people who are desirous of attending the live concert, adding that the partnership with Lagos State was an icing on the cake.
“The change in venue was to accommodate many others who wish to attend the annual concert. The first three editions were sold out. As we know Olamide to be a street musician, he wants more people to enjoy him; hence, we have a change of venue to accommodate others.
“We want to take the concert to another level, what we want to do is to use OLIC to take Lagos to the world. Taking Lagos to the world means that at the end of the concert, many all over the world will want to come for the next edition and that is tourism,’’ he said.
Okeke stated that Lagos was the most vibrant state in Africa and therefore the concert would not be short of the attendees.
“Lagos is a centre of excellence and the most vibrant in Africa, so we are ready for the expected number of people for the concert.
“I am sure that Olamide is ready to take the concert to another level because of his brand as a street boy and he will not be short of that,’’ he said.
