Even the Yudala trucks parked within the premises had people, who were eager to get unobstructed view of the action perched atop them.
The party began with performances from a plethora of upcoming artistes and moved to a nostalgia-inducing performance from One World, the Nigerian Afro-Rock group of the 70s, who rolled back the years with a masterful delivery of some of their timeless hits, through the indigenous flavour delivered by a local flute player.
