The date of the 3rd edition of the popular love-themed annual show hosted by Nigerian R&B star, Darey Art Alade has been announced to be April 4, 2015.
Known as. ‘Love Like a Movie’ concert, the 2015 edition will hold on April 4, 2015 at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre in Lagos, it’s regular venue for the two previous editions.
The debut edition of the concert took Nigeria by storm in 2013 when a red carpet session co-hosted by international model and TV reality show star, Kim Kardashian and featuring music talents like 2Face Idibia, Banky W, Tiwa Savage, Ice Prince, Waje, Timi Dakolo, Cupid, Praiz, Tolu, MoEazy, Kaffy and several others.
With Darey himself not missing from the show, the event set a new bar for live music performance and event production in Nigeria, catching a lot of attention in national and international media for weeks and months afterwards.
The second edition of the concert in 2014 featured another global star, former Destiny’s child member, Kelly Rowland and other Nigerian stars like Tiwa Savage, Waje, Timi Dakolo, MoEazy and Darey and the show recorded even greater success with sky high ratings and media attention.
The past two editions of the show held in February to celebrate the Valentine season but this year, the 2015 General elections earlier scheduled for February prevented it from holding at the same time hence the change in date to the Easter weekend on April 4, 2015.
Executive producer and lead performer, Darey, speaking of his excitement at being involved in the ground breaking concert series, said: ‘The aim is to surprise people with the quality and freshness of what will be on display. I think we will surprise even ourselves – that’s how good it will be.’
Love Like a Movie 3 will explore new grounds and take the show into the future with a brand new depiction of Love. Featuring various performers from Nigeria and around the world, it is a futuristic fusion of high-energy theatrical circus performances, which evoke shades of the legendary Cirque de Soleil and superbly choreographed dance routines.
However, unlike the two previous editions, no international star has been mentioned as special guest this year.
Fans will surely be waiting for that, as well as the line up of Nigerian stars to perform also.
