The 3rd edition of the flagship annual event by Phyno, Phynofest, tagged the #shutdownreloaded, is come and gone.
As is typical with the fest this has come with more amazing moments, performances and a concert attendance of well over 50,000 people.
The fest was held in the coal city of Enugu, Nigeria, and was brought to fans by Penthauzein conjunction with NairaBet.
The fest kicked off on Saturday 18th November, with the ‘Street Party’ held in the Abakpa Nike area of Enugu, the hood where Phyno grew up and has shaped who he is as a global recording artiste of note.
It was impossible to miss the love the hood had for their own. Events off the day saw Phyno engaged with children and all present, performance by upcoming acts, refreshments and lots of music.
The Phynofest concert held on Sunday 19th November at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium; and riding on the success of the previous year this year’s concert enjoyed class act performances and choreography by top performers like Phyno, D’banj, Yemi Alade, Runtown, Zoro, YCee, Flavour, Timaya, Runtown, Rude Boy, Lil Kesh, Mayorkun, Duncan Mighty.
The event was hosted by Olisa Adibua, with appearances from Nedu and official hype-man Ehiz.
The upcoming artists were not left out as there were performances by next rated artistes from across the country.
Highlights of the night were Phyno’s headline live band performance, Zoro’s entrance, Yemi Alade’s scintillating performance, the Kokomaster D’Banj doing what he does best, and the list goes on and on.
To round up events of the weekend, there was a post-concert after party, powered by Henessey.
This year organizers of the event say that in maintaining the ultimate concert experience in these parts of the world a lot of planning had to go to improving its infrastructure, security and the roll-out of its volunteer programme (where youths had the opportunity to learn from a world class event and render voluntary service to community.
Volunteers were chosen across varying departments from media to venue management and welfare.
Fans from other parts of the country were not left out as Phyno through the ‘Super Fan‘ competition on social media and in partnership with Arik Air, gave 3 fans the opportunity to enjoy an all-expense paid trip to Enugu to be part of the festival.
