Revellers at the ongoing 35th edition of the National Festival of Arts and Culture (NAFEST) on Saturday in Lagos were thrilled with electrifying performances from Shina Peters and Alariwo of Africa.

The festival hosted by the Lagos State government, has its theme as “Culture and Peaceful Co-existence”.

The state government introduced an entertainment segment in the festival to enable revellers have a bit of the Lagos nightlife experience.

Alariwo of Africa kicked off with impressive performances, irresistible for his fans to walk away.

He replicated late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti on stage with his dance styles and evergreen instructive music.

He performed late Fela’s music like “Water No Get Enemy”, “Palava”, “Teacher Don’t Teach Me Nonsense” and more.

Also, Shina Peters gave some doses of his “Shinamania”, “Omoge Loke Loke”, and other songs.

Shina Peters sang prophetically that Nigeria would be better as he urged Nigerians to remain peaceful, united and indivisible.

The highlight of the night was when Shina Peters called fans up the stage for some dancing contest, with some going home with smart phones and GoTV decoders.
