Dabyna Poll-Abraham better known as Dabyna “Son of Rock” held an exclusive “Three Kings in a Legend” press concert, the first of its kind in appreciation of the media.
The event which is a prelude to “Three Kings in a Legend” album launch billed for May 28 was to provide an exclusive concert for the entertainment pleasure of the hard working media men and women doing the onscreen and off-screen job, informing and entertaining the society with the past, present and future as well as making sure the entertainment industry grow from strength to strength selflessly.
According to Dabyna, “Three Kings in a Legend” album contains 3 different genres of music in one album – Raggae, Rock and Rock life (A combination of high-life and rock music). He explained that he added the rock life genre because he is trying to bring the older folks into what is happening today because a lot of them shy away from the music played today not just because of the rhythm but the lyrics as well.
Dabyna and his amazing band thrilled the media as well as some die-hard fans with scintillating live performance at an event which held at the African Bar, Oriental hotel, on Wednesday, April 5.
Guitarist Dabyna who pioneered Rock in Nigeria amazed everyone not just with his live performances of the 3 different genres of music but also with the magnificent use of his guitar as well as his dance moves. He showed the media a feel of what they should expect on the day of the album launch.
Radio personality, Olisa Adebua, Veteran journalist, Jahman Anikulapo and award winning-filmmaker and writer, Femi Odugbemi took turns to talk about Dabyna.
Olisa Adibua described Dabyna as one of Nigeria’s best entertainer from way back and that they have come a long way. He added that he will keep promoting his songs.
Jahman Anikulapo has this to say about Dabyna, “He is an artiste of all time. He doesn’t have to go to the studio every week. One song from Dabyna is an evergreen.”
While Femi Odugbemi, added, “Dabyna is absolutely creative. He is a throwback and authentic, you know that by the way he plays. I’m a big fan of the greats like King Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obe who are original. And he is an original. There is no one playing locally that is like Dabyna. Congrats, I’m really happy to be your friend.”
It was a great and fun concert as some people danced, some laughed while some cried because of his display of talent.
Dabyna described the show as fun and great and more than his expectation. “My expectation has never been in numbers, it has always been in quality and we got some quality people here today.”
