For the most part of the year; Soul singer Maka has been playing shows at the American, Italian, French and Canadian consulates in Lagos, Nigeria. Impressing an unassuming crowd at the main stage at Gidifest in April, 2018 she held the stage with her band (One Band Like That #OBLT). Proving her ability to command a stage, Maka a live performer has opened shows for artists like Nigeria's Bez and South African's Mi Casa among others.
The Soul singer is taking her own show on the road, by announcing a bi-monthly pop up series. The series "Maka: After Dark" will feature guest appearances and her rocker band; One Band Like That #OBLT. The Maiden Edition will kick off on the 29th of May at 16/16 in Victoria Island; where guests who pay online get free Heineken during the show. Maka will bring out R&B and soul singer; Ruby Gyang alongside singer Eri Ife at her first stop, as each pop up show will get its own guest appearances.
Maka hopes to bring to Lagos some Jazz by taking the music directly to her fans and hopefully a fresh audience open to experiencing Maka in the most intimate way. The show will be hosted by Tosan Mac; who will navigate the audience through her journey as well as a Q&A for the long standing fans and new additions.
