The much anticipated event which took place at the Eko Hotels and Suites attracted quite a large turnout of young, fun loving Nigerians who came out in their numbers to catch a glimpse of the American superstar. J Cole, who recently dropped his fifth studio album, KOD, has a large following in Nigeria with fans who have been following the progress of his career since his debut studio album, Cole World.

This was the rappers first appearance in Nigeria and it could not have come at a better time, less than two weeks after the release of his album, which has broken several chart records since its release.

The show which was hosted by the duo of Nigeria's D.O.T.U.N and South Africa's Pearl Thusi opened with performances from several Nigerian deejays and artistes taking turns to thrill the audience.

But the night belonged to one person and the anxious crowd began to chant his name immediately after Davido left the stage. At exactly 2.05am, Saturday morning, the man of the hour took to the stage in a Nigerian jersey and delivered a standout act.

Performing from his large catalog of songs from past albums like Cole World, 4YourEyezOnlyand even tracks off the new album KOD, like the title track, Photograph and Motiv8, J Cole did not disappoint as his energy and crowd engagement was a delight to watch. Lasting almost an hour, the rapper who was visibly surprised by the crowd's reception to his songs rounded up his performance with 'No Role Model' , fully justifying why he is the man of the moment.

The performance will go down as one of the most memorable showings by an international artist on Nigerian soil, and it once again confirmed how much Nigerian youths embrace and have been influenced by sounds from the other side.

The night also witnessed top artists like Simi, Banky W, Ikechukwu Killz, who were there as fans of J Cole.
