According to the producer, Bunmi Davies, it will be a reference point in the country’s showbiz.
Davies says: “He stands for the rave of the moment in the music industry; D’ Banj, ‘Them’ stands for Ali’s lieutenants in the music/comedy circle while the ‘I’ stands for the king of comedy himself, Ali Baba.”
Scheduled to hold on June 12 and 13 at the Expo Hall, Oceanview, Victoria Island, Lagos, the producer says, “other comedians do show for just a day, but a day will not be enough for the king. This is part of what makes it greater than others.”
Already line –up for the show are artistes such as Julius Agwu, Okey Bakassi, Basket Mouth, 9ice, Gbenga Adeyinka, Yibo Koko among others.
“A lot of artistes will perform at the event, so, one day will not be enough. Since the first day is a public holiday, we can’t afford to deny Nigerians the opportunity of relaxing and having fun,” Davies quips.
Also speaking, the show’s communications officer, Olujuwon B.P, the show will mark the return of Ali Baba.
“It will be different and unique because, for a very long time, Ali Baba has not done a solo show; the last time he did one was in 2005, which was a success. For close to four years, he has been busy planning this. His fans can be rest assure that they will get nothing but the best.”
