The THIS DAY concert held on July 11th at Dome, looks like it was off the hook!.. all this stars in one day in the plush city of Abuja, Nigeria.
The Concert is the brain child of this man Nduka Obaigbena, who is the Editor in chief and founder of the Nigerian Newspaper.
This year the festival featured headliners like Usher and Rihanna who brought Jay-Z out for a duet, while the fashion part of the festival featured models Naomi Campbell, Tyson Beckford, Alek Wek, Oluchi, and designers Chris Aire and our favourite designer Ozwald Boateng. Mr. Obaigbena has held this mammoth summer concert since 2006,Â His goal is to “promote Nigeriaâ€™s economic and political progress” he elaborates to the NY TIMES.
This Year the festival will make itâ€™s international debut with stops in Washington DCâ€™s Kennedy Center on August 1 with BeyoncÃ© and Seal as headliners, and in London on October 14.
