The Fire Concert, the first of many, had a massive turnout as fans, music lovers, and guests flocked in droves to enjoy a night with the rave of the moment, featuring intimate live music presented by the continent’s music luminaries.

Welcomed with emotional screams and applause, the young maestro hit the stage adorned in a stylish piece, with smiles and an address of gratitude towards excited fans and supporters.
The atmosphere was palpable, as Fireboy DML settled down to the business of the day with the track Need You to commence a nearly 4-hour set of riveting live music. Moving from hit songs – “Like I Do“, “Vibration“, “Jealous“, “Gbas Gbos“, “Wait and See“, many were bursting forth with celebration, miming and retro dancing as Scatter filled the space.
DJ Factor thrilled the crowd into the morning with some nostalgic songs, welcoming the audience into yet another comeback from Fireboy DML, who provided additional popular favourites from the “Apollo” album, as well as a special encore performance of the smash hit – Peru, to cap off a memorable night of wonderful music.
