[color=orange]âWe are doing Top10 MICS for many reasons, long before now, some of us who are old enough still have memories of Lekki Sun Splash and other concerts at open venues where people enjoyed themselves, feel safe and look forward to the next edition. We are trying to recreate the memory of good old days with the infusion of contemporary offerings.
Aside this, we are also trying to create a concert where everybody will have a sense of belonging. We are tired of events where only hip hop audience would be catered for. We want an event where fans of different genres of music could mix and experience the thrill of live performances of leading lights in different genres.
