Neo-Soul and RnB artist FALANA kicked off her Chapter One Tour in Lagos at Terra Kulture on Friday,16th August 2019. The Falana Chapter One Tour is scheduled to hit 4 cities in Africa; Lagos, Accra, Kigali, & Abuja. With the next stop being Accra.
The Falana Chapter One Tour Lagos was an extraordinary night that displayed how deeply music could be expressed not just as a performance but also as ART in every sense of the word.
It was also a great time for guests to connect with friends and meet new people. The event brought together socialites, creatives and influencers like K Ten, Avala, Denola Grey, Douglas Jekan, Godwin Tom, BOJ, Teezee, Wavy The Creator, Odunsi, Tomi Thomas, Pamilerin, etc.
The show started at 10:20 and had talented acts like Aylo, Deena Ade, and Celeste deliver laudable opening performances which were followed up with an avant-garde Falana entrance.
FALANA performed acoustic covers of a range of tracks and songs from the Chapter One EP, with every song inducing a different feeling/ disposition. It left guests awed and captivated through the course of her and the band’s time on stage.
Some of the songs she performed were; Women, Snakes in the grass, Dynamite, Start Again, Feel your Energy, It’s more than Chemistry, To Zion (which was one of the main highlights of the show). She closed the show (which lasted for about 1 hour 30 minutes), by performing her hit single “Ride or Die” which had almost everyone either on their feet or on the edge of their seats, applauding and with some feeling of nostalgia that the performance was coming to an end.
Prior to her farewell performance, Falana introduced her band ( OP Jakes, Kaycee, Maro, Selma, Sam, Tayo, Tosin) who delivered an excellent Instrumental Interlude with her to the elated audience. She gave a stirring vote of thanks to everyone in the Theater that came out to support and show love.
Falana Chapter One Tour was definitely an indelible artistic experience that left all those who witnessed the pureness of it, wanting more. Everyone is already looking out for Chapter Two and this time, The World would be watching as well.
