Fans of the early 00’s RnB scene this was your time to shine! (In my school disco DJ voice haha)
On my way to the venue I noticed a lot of the ladies were dressed up especially. This was a special occasion and a far cry from your typical underground Hip Hop show.
I arrived with an open mind. Admittedly Mario and Trey Songz wasn’t to my personal taste, but I could appreciate their artistry and how they captivated a mainly female audience.
Mario handing out roses especially, both with their shirts open and met by screams! (You can hear the six pack envy in my tone!)
Both performers delivered in there roles as opening acts and without waiting too long got us ready for the headline act.
Remember I had no expectations going into this concert. I saw glimpses of Ashanti during Verzuz battles and thought she was good. I was not prepared for what was about to go down! The pyrotechnics kicked off, the dancers came out and through the smoke emerged Ashanti looking far better now than she did 20years ago!
Every fine detail of her presentation was on point! The hair, the outfit, the boots! I was gripped!
For the next 60minutes with barely a pause! Ashanti ran through hit after hit, including our personal favourites like Foolish, Rain On Me, What’s Luv, Rock Wit You and Baby. She performed her hits and the hits she wrote for others.
Stopping briefly to address the crowd and send her condolences to everyone who lost their lives in that awful recent tragedy in America.
This was showmanship at an élite level. We were blessed with flawless singing, presence and amazing dance routines.
This hardcore underground Hip Hop head was entertained and well fed. This performance was nothing but goodness and positive energy and I left annoying my Wife by singing Awww Baby all the way home!
