Nigerian artiste, Lynxxx, will touchdown in Abuja this month for his Pepsi Album Launch and Promotional Tour. The launch will take place on May 14th, 2011, and will feature special appearances by Hip-Hop duo, Show Dem Camp (SDC), and established artists from the Record labels Finesse Entertainment And Play Records. This will be Lynxxx’s first visit to the capital with his Syndik8 producer, Ikon.
The Event will be managed by Events and PR Managers, iBlend services, who have consistently delivered stellar events in the FCT.
As a new artist, Lynxxx has had the opportunity to work with a long list of music industry luminaries across Africa, fusing Hip-Hop and soulful R&B to produce what he terms ‘Jollof Music’. On his debut album, he collaborated with SDC, nominees for Best Duo/Group at the 2010 SoundCity Music Video Awards.
“I can’t wait to perform and introduce more people to my music,” says Lynxxx. “My Abuja fans have been looking forward to this launch and I am ready to give them the performance of a lifetime.”
