The Present House, Freedom Way, Lekki Phase 1 witnessed the official unveiling of Tosin Martins’ new studio project, M.E.S-SAGE; on July 10th 2015.
Tosin Martins is a gifted singer who has continually put his vocal dexterity to use within the past 10 years to become a trio of things – Minister, Entertainer, Statesman (M.E.S).
His latest gospel album echoes these distinctive personalities in which he would rather be classified, a polychromatic musical existence, utilized in classification of his music, guiding his every thought, beat, touch, and vocal.
The event featured an exciting line up of activities including comedy with Helen Paul and musical perfomances by Cobhams Asuquo, Tim Godfrey, Mairo Ese and Chocolate City recording act, Nosa. Special guest appearance by Chief Ebenezer Obey sadly couldn’t make the event but sent his love and support for the album in a recorded tape played at the unveiling.
Super talented producer and singer, Cobhams Asuquo’s performance gave the crowd a chill as he sang songs of praise and worship. His strong vocals connected the audience to his performance as we all joined him in his performance. Then, I must say that Tosin Martins’ remix of the traditional Igbo folksong “Chigeji Chigabo” was absolutely brilliant but like some of the other songs he performed from the album.
The big surprise of the day was Mr. Incredible aka The Chairman, M.I. Although, he didn’t perform but his presence helped take the show to another level of excitement.
