Commenting on Etisalat’s sponsorship of the album launch, Chief Commercial Officer of Etisalat Nigeria, Mr. Matthew Willsher explained that the company is proud to support platforms that promote the works of young talents in Nigerian.
“At Etisalat, we believe that youth empowerment is a key to nation-building, therefore we seek to empower Nigerian youths to be more creative and innovative so that they can be useful to their communities. As you may know from other activities we are involved in, supporting great talents in music, arts, photography and small businesses in Nigeria is part of the ways we encourage youth development. Good music is generally loved by Nigerians and we reckon that promoting a talent such as Ice Prince would go a long way to positively affect the Nigerian music industry,” he said.
To lighten up the mood of the event was the presence of the Chief of Staff to the Edo State Governor, Honourable Patrick Obahiagbon, who with his usual jaw-breaking words described Ice Prince Zamani as “one of Nigeria’s musical hula palooza”, stating that he felt highly honoured to be a part of the album launch as he ushered Ice Prince in to light up the stage.
Performing on stage for more than four hours, Ice Prince performed some of the popular songs in his album including Wassup Wassup, See Myself, Juju and Gimmie dat. Other acts such as Olamide, Phyno, Young L, Sunny Neji, Chip Monk, Don Jazzy and Dr Sid were among stars that performed at a night filled with fire and excitement.
The event which ended at the early hours of the morning saw participants queuing up to buy copies of the FOZ album at the venue.
