The star-studded 2023 NBA All-Star Game was in the news again this year for its halftime performances, announcing Nigerian Stars, Burna Boy, Rema and Tems to grace the occasion.
As yet another highlight of the boundaries Nigerian and African music continue to push, the three put on dazzling performances in their own right.
Opening the show with his hits, "Anybody" and "It's Plenty", Burna Boy put on a performance that is sure to get the trends buzzing again followed by a much-expected display of exuberance by fellow Nigerian star Rema who got the crowd ecstatic with energetic renditions of his songs "Calm Down" and "Holiday".
To put the icing on the cake, the ever-beautiful songstress Tems came out to a performance of her songs "Crazy Tings", and "Free Mind" parts of her verse from Wizkid's Essence and Future's "Wait For You".
Accompanied by brilliant visual effects, the performances were a true display of beautiful traditional and modern African dance routines and an ever-lively band that kept the vibe alive.
It seemed like all was said and done until Burna Boy was brought out for the last time to perform his grammy-nominated global hit song, "Last Last" which sent the crowd into a state of elation.
Surely, this adds to the giant strides being taken by the African music scene towards world domination, strides which are definitely in the right direction!
Kudos to the three Artists for bearing the African Torch.
