Yo Maps’ capped a night of brilliant performances by an array of Zambia’s top artistes during Sunday’s BiaSaigon Festival of Artistes held at the Music Club in Lusaka.
The moment the artiste stepped on stage revellers thronged stage-side to catch a close glimpse of the Season Yanga hitmaker.
Backed by three male dancers, the electric performance affirmed Yo Maps position as arguably the most influential Zambian artiste at the moment.
Yo Maps wowed the crowd with sing-along hits like ‘Samson’, ‘Try Again’ and ‘Kondwa’ with Daxon joining him on stage for the latter song.
The musician then ended his appearance but this left the audience thirsting for more,
demanding for an encore in the process, which Maps granted them in form of two of Macky 2’s collaborations with him, ‘Banono’ and ‘Mutima Wanga’, which transitioned perfectly into the Kopala ‘retired’ general’s very own set.
King Bugar as he is passionately referred to by fans then put up an entertaining solo performance, mesmerising the audience with both old and recent music such as ‘Feeling Feeling’ and last year’s collabo with slain South African rapper ‘Beautiful Night’ respectively.
Interestingly, the well attended BiaSaigon Festival of Artistes gave the crowd a beautiful night as Chef 187 who was also among the performing acts equally put up an impressive performance.
While Yo Maps’ and Macky 2’s sets involved dance moves, the former assisted mainly by dancers with the latter doing it alone, for Chefy it was mainly about stage presence with his act predominantly being solo, save for the time Umusepela Crown and Bow Chase joined him on stage for their duets ‘Too Busy’ and
‘Wingonawila ka day’ respectively.
The crowd went into frenzy when he performed his Jemax assisted number ‘Ba Yubu’.
The rapper still found time to take a trip down memory lane with fan favourites ‘Tuleya Tule Kula’ and ‘Higher’.
Female rap sensation Xaven, Dizmo and his Apa Ili So labelmate the ever impressive Jae Cash also lit up the Music Club Stage with their plethora of hits.
Comedian-turned-musician, Ndine Emma who hosted the event could not resist the temptation of also performing his dance anthem ‘So’.
