The Plantashun Boiz were once the biggest contemporary act
in Nigeria. The trio of 2Face, Faze and Blackface were the subject of many a
teenage girl’s fantasies with their list of hit songs such as ‘Don’t U Know’,
‘You And I’ and ‘Knock Me Off’ in the late 90s and early 00s.
Following their breakupin the middle of the previous
decade, their musical journeys took different routes with all three members
going solo. On Saturday August 1 at the IBB Square in Makurdi, Benue State,
2Face and Faze came together for a rare stage reunionat theStar Music Trek
2015 #MakurdiRocks concert.
The concert, which was a homecoming of sorts forBenue State
homeboy 2Face was packed to the rafters with thousands of expectant fans eager
to set eyes on their hometown hero. After performing several of his hits, he
surprised the crowd by inviting erstwhile bandmate Faze onstage and then the
evening got really intense.
