The news of the coming of US rapper, J.Cole, to Nigeria for a concert, which would involve Davido and Wizkid, has caused Nigerian hip-hop music lovers to rub their palms. It appears they would rub their palms even more, with the more recent news that his label mate, Bas, might be coming with him to Lagos for the concert.
It was earlier reported that J.Cole would be performing in Lagos at a concert tagged “Castle Lite Unlocks”, on April 27, 2018. The concert put together by Castle Lite Nigeria, is scheduled to hold at the Eko Hotels & Suites. The expectation of Nigerians for the concert was heightened by the news that two of the biggest pop stars in the country, Wizkid and Davido, would be performing at the event.

However, there is a new twist to the story. One of the rappers signed to J.Cole’s Dreamville Records, Bas, has dropped a hint that he could be in Lagos for the highly anticipated concert. The rapper who released his second studio album titled ‘Too High To Riot’, in 2016, tweeted that he ‘might have to make this Nigeria move with @dreamville just to catch @wizkidayo and @iam_Davido set.’
