The long-anticipated multi-city tour began on American Independence day, Wednesday, July 4 and will end on Sunday September 2, 2012.
According to EME, the tour will cover nine states in the northern states of the United States of America, including New York, Chicago, Texas, and Atlanta.
Banky W, Wizkid, Skales, Rotimi, XO and other EME stars will also touch down in Canada.
On Wednesday July 4, Banky W, Skales, Rotimi and Wizkid kicked off the North-American tour with an amazing performance in Houston. Three days later, with the exception of Banky W, the EME boys also hit Dallas. On July 20, Wizkid and Skales will perform in Toronto.
The tour heads back to America with Banky W, Wizkid, Skales and Rotimi performing in New York City.
EME associate and rapper, XO Senavoe, joins the train on Saturday August 18 in Atlanta. The EME crew performs in Washington DC, Chicago and New York which wraps up the tour. The trip involves two of the Empire Mates Entertainment associates, Rotimi and XO Senavoe.
XO Senavoe is a half-Nigerian, half-Ghanaian rapper who has been making a name for himself, thanks to his unique and rapid wordplay. The upcoming rapper has got huge co-signs from established acts such as Banky W and M.I. Last year, he featured in the historic Nigerian BET Awards Cypher which included Mode 9, Sauce Kid, M.I, Ice Prince and Naeto C. This year, he was one of the promising acts that featured on M.I Abaga’s Illegal Music 2 mixtape.
Rotimi is an American singer with Nigerian heritage. He was born in the city of New Jersey, 22 years ago. His love for music started when his father started exposing him to the music of the late Afrobeat maestro, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, and Reggae icon, Bob Marley. At age 15 Rotimi wowed the Apollo Theatre crowd and won the first place position on Amateur Night. Later on, he joined a group called NBH made up of two of Jay-Z’s cousins. He is presently recognised as one of the brightest upcoming multi-talented artistes in the American entertainment industry.
The label is also working on a pan-Nigeria tour, with details are to be announced this summer.Share
