Homebased shut down London concert
United Kingdom-based Nigerian singer, Emmanuel Anjorin, popularly known as Homebased, recorded a huge success with his sold out debut concert tagged ‘Homebased In Concert’, which held recently at the popular Smade Lounge in London.
The ‘Just Fine’ crooner was shown massive support, as fans and alike trooped out in their numbers to attend the show from different cities in the Queen’s country that include Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield.
Speaking with The Guardian, the singer said, “the feedback from the fans was very positive. They really enjoyed the concert and some were asking for the next concert date.”
According to him, talks are already underway with regards to the next event. He added that there will be collaborations with a number of very highly established artistes on the next concert. “The date will be confirmed shortly,” he added.
Giving further remarks, Homebased said: “Honestly, I didn’t expect the show to sell out the way it did. As an independent artiste and for someone who has only been in music industry for just over three years that was just epic!
“I didn’t even realise people knew a lot of my songs; it was wonderful to hear them sing along with me, especially the ‘Just Fine’ track. It was incredible.”
Like said, nothing good comes easy. Homebased shared some of the challenges faced while putting the gig together.
“The number one challenge faced is being an independent artiste with no backing from anyone. I basically project-managed the event myself end-to-end. This includes funding, promotions, logistics to overall execution. So I am indeed super proud of how things turned out,” he said.
Meanwhile, fans have continued to commend Homebase and his team for well planning of the concert. They called for a bigger stage
A female fan, who pleaded an anonymity said: “Hombased and Nelsonjeez are natural born talents. Their stage presence and energy was so beautiful to experience.”
“We want to see Homebased at the O2 soon. I really love the ‘Just fine’ song by Homebased. I enjoyed the show from beginning to end. The live band was incredible,” another fan said.
The show had in performances from a number of artistes, including Nelsonjeez, Homebase younger; Tunaco, Veratunes, Sean Dampte, and British-born artiste, Neanate, Bellybandit and Anthony Joshua’s brother Mauro.
