Tomorrow, Artistes, fans and friends from across Nigeria and Africa will gather at the Daystar Christian Centre, Lagos, Nigeria for the first Memorial Concert in honour of the late Branama Queen, Kefee (Irikefe Don-Momoh).
Tagged ‘An Evening with Kefee’, the event will witness artistes perform some of Kefee’s hit songs plus dances, comedy and word exposition. Some of the artistes expected at the event are Sammie Okposo, Nikki Laoye, Lady X (South Africa), Elenae (Ghana), Timaya, Anny Ibrahim, Vector, Cynthia Morgan, Yinka Davies, Duncan Mighty, Nomoreloss and many more. The event will be hosted by On-Air Personality, Sabina, and comedy by MC Abbey.
Speaking on the event, Kefee’s husband, Teddy Don-Momoh, explained the choice of the Daystar auditorium venue as the church was willing to host her memorial concert and celebrate one of their own. He also explained the choice of 5th February as the date, saying “The 5th of February is always special to her (Kefee). That’s the day she was actually born and she’s always giving birth to new things, new projects that day. When the kitchen opened, when the foundation opened, when an album drops- all happened on this day, her birthday so we just decided to continue the theme, we should continue that tradition in her name”
He further announced that a new album and DVDs of her recent works will be launched at the event as well.
“Apart from honouring her with our presence, we will be having albums launched. Albums in terms of the DVD collection of her video as well as the other half of the double album she actually wanted to release. Earlier on, she had planned to release two albums, the Beautiful and Chorus Leader. She was able to release the Chorus Leader but the Beautiful album would be dropping by the grace of God on the 5th.
“We would also have “the Best of Both Worlds”. The Best of Both Worlds is a combination of the Chorus Leader and the Beautiful, but this time, on DVD’’ he said.
Teddy added that the Kefee Memorial event would be an annual affair. The event is slated to kick off at 4pm, at the DayStar Christian Centre, Ikeja Lagos.
