The music event which also marks the release of her third studio album “Timeless”, held on Thursday, June 22, 2017, at the new Terra Kulture Arena, Lagos.
The show started with a documentary video on screen about her music video that described her musical journey, with her label, manager and producer speaking of how awesome an artist she is.
Omawumi and her “Thenotimeband” kicked off with ‘Megbele’ before delving into songs on the album. She also performed ‘Butterflies’, her second single off the album as well as ‘Dolapo’ which had a pretty interesting story attached to it.
Other songs performed were ‘The matter’, ‘Through the fire’, ‘Ololufe’, ‘Play na play’, and ‘If you ask me’ among others.
Omawumi made it known to the audience that every song on the album tells a story as she playfully asked the audience to drop huge sums in millions to support and encourage her.
Some of the fellow industry mates that came to show support for the singer include Obi Asika, Bolanle Austen-Peters, Sunday Are, Asa Asika, Daddy Showkey, Timi Dakolo, Ebisan, Waje, Naeto C, Jazzman Olofin, Sasha, Tiwa Savage, Teebillz, Adebola Williams, Tosin Martins, Ruby Gyang, Ckay, Tjan, Yung L, Chigurl, and of course Cobhams Asuquo.
“Timeless” produced entirely by Cobhams is an album to get your hands on, as Omawumi put her best foot forward on the project. The Trace Live showcase proved this so well.
