STAR TREK 2012 acts – Mr RAW, Ice Prince, Yinka Best, M.I, 2face, Wande Coal, Naeto C, Crystals and Tiwa Savage.
It was a gathering of the best of the best, when Nigerian Breweries PLC hosted key media last night, to a special event where performers for this year’s edition of Star Trek were announced.
Inside De Marquee , at Mega Plaza, in Lagos, MC Gideon Okeke called them out one after the other: Presh, Omawumi, Tiwa Savage, Waje, Yinka Best, Jay Martins, M.I, Wande Coal, Naeto C and Mr Raw .
Other headliners Flavour, 9ice, D’banj, Wizkid and Obesere were not in the house, but they were heavily present through the brilliant branding that covered the entire room.
Titled‘ Nigeria Rocks ‘, this year’s edition of the nation-wide concert will run from May 25 to June 23. Organisers say cities to be covered include Ibadan, Makurdi, Ilesha, Lagos, and Sapele. Others are Awka, Abakaliki, Uyo and Calabar.
2face Idibia who had hitherto been labelled a Guinness property, owing to his Guinness Extra Smooth endorsement of many years, will make his debut in the Star concert series with his inclusion in this year’s Trek. Idibia’s romance with Star started last year when he performed at the company’s Hat-Trick event.
Apart from Idibia, it is also the first time Tiwa Savage an Waje–two rapidly-rising talents, are performing for Star.
‘This year’s edition is aimed at enlivening the social atmosphere in Nigeria, thus demonstrating the brand’s core values of fun, brightness, sociability and friendship’says Ageni Yusuf, NB PLC’s Corporate Affaris Adviser.‘…As is tradition of Star to promote and encourage talents, up-and-coming acts will be given the chance to perform in their domains’.
Other performers this year include Star Quest 2012 winners CRYSTALS, SOUND SULTAN, and ICE PRINCE.
