The choice of the stadium that has the capacity of over 25,000 people as the venue for the concert, is undeniably another first as far as concerts go in Lagos, and it’s evidence to the success of the three previous editions, Olamide Live in Concert I: The Beast Unleased ranked the biggest concert of 2014, Olamide live in concert II: Beast Move a sold-out show at Eko Convention Centre and Olamide live in Concert III Beast Mode, which was arguably the most successful concert of 2016.
