Toolz and her baby bump on arrival for the show
The One Africa Music Fest held last Saturday with Africa’s biggest names such as Sarkodie, PSquare, Alikiba, Tiwa Savage, Banky W, Alikiba, Flavour, Awilo Longomba, Tekno, Praiz and more hitting the stage to thrill fans and lovers of the show.
The show which held at the SSE arena in London thrilled fans quite alright but did not turn out so nicely because as Pulse NG put it, ‘Nigerians just carried our Eko Hotel behaviour to London’.
This was because the show which was scheduled for 7pm started at more than an hour later, putting the host Banky W in an awkward position of having to rush artists through their performance.
Jidenna on arrival
Jidenna’s had the worst case ever as he did not get to perform. He was backstage as the show got cut off because the venue owners had to turn off power and shutdown, how nice!

We hear that as fans waited for a miracle to happen, they were met with their worst nightmare; stage technicians dismantling the stage, right in front of them.
Apparently not cool with the treatment, Jidenna took to social media to let the world know why he did not perform. He was sure to preach against our ‘African time ‘mentality which cost him his performance. He said as Africans, if we say it’s our time, then we have to be on time.
Meantime here are some photos of your favourite celebrities and artistes who showed up in London for the show:
