On that same date, bank holiday Monday, August 27, 2012 in London also, is another concert tagged Africa Unplugged, already billed as the biggest African music festival in Europe. On their bill are the likes of Grammy nominated artiste-Femi Anikulapo Kuti, 2 Face Idibia, Fally Ipupa, Sarkodie, Zahara, Barnaba Boy, Flavour, Cabo Snoop, Chameleon, Madtraxx, Winky D, Dj Arafat, Iyanya, R2Bees, Zakes Bantwini, Dj Edu, Mic Inity and many others. It's like a coalition of African superstars all set to perform that night. The show would be happening at the Wembley Arena and planned to start by 6PM.
Mind you all, the Notting Hill Carnival 2012 is also on for that day, though billed for much earlier. The Nigerian Corner would have the likes of Sir Shina Peters, Olamide, Buchi, Munachi Abii, Wale Gates and so many more performing, from 12PM till about 7PM. So it's a potpourri of choice to pick from, though the Notting Hill Carnival stands on its own. So between the D'Banj & Superstar friends and the Africa Unplugged, which would you rather go to? We don't particularly understand why the organizers of both shows chose to hold the concerts on the same date. Each would have been packed full, on different dates.
