With no gain say, the The Ibejii Live Xperience (TILX) 2019, a festival of great live performances, was a blast, as soulful singer-storyteller, Ibejii, brought the most beautiful, passionate and purest live act to music and talent at The Backyard, Lagos.

Hosting lovers of great alternative music from across the city, the event was an eclectic ensemble of fine alternative artistes made up of the uniquely talented DopeL, the angelic Celeste and the guitar maestro, Godwyn Guitar, heralding the entry of the star attraction, Ibejii.

The Afro-soul singer, once again, brought his unique music storytelling to bear as he thrilled an audience that comprised of true lovers of fine music, including a bevy of music and film celebrities – Omawunmi, Brymo, Ozone, Aduke – in an evening filled with love, light, dance and great sound.

Accompanied by dance performer, Hermes Iyele, Ibejii’s music flowed, twisted and ebbed with the rhythmic acrobatic body contortions of the world-renowned dancer. He opened his performance with his haunting Midnight Strings from his awaited Scattered Elements project, which was followed quickly by crowd favourites from his GreenWhite Dope and Tribal Marks albums.

From Koyemi to Eda, Aye and Eko Blues, Ibejii’s rendition of 14 of his most loved songs had the crowd spellbound. His closing set featured Ba Mi Lo, Epiphany and other sweet dance melodies, triggering a prolonged ovation at drop mic.

As if to blow the roof off the magnificently lit stage, the magical night proceeded with an after party, where Ibejii’s new experimental music project, Music Save My Life (MSML) was formally launched.

MSML is an experimental mid to up tempo dance project that reflects Ibejii’s willingness to bend music genres. The new project is now available to stream, download or buy from all music platforms.

With TILX, June 12, Nigeria’s hallowed Democracy Day now indulges a freedom of the musical soul. The music event is a showcase of Nigeria’s top talent in alternative music. As a top contender on Lagos’ annual social calendar, it will be back June 12, 2020.
