MUSIC

SUGA’S Sunday Show @ Shades

Lagos City’s largest indoor Bar plays host to the widely acknowledged O’Suga Band this Sunday. The group formally named Sugarman &The Crossroad Band is beloved in the barroom circuit for the extensive strumming antics of its acoustic guitarist. But the singers are also as comfortable with rendering afrobeats songs as the guitarists are adept at stretching the rock effect, so the band delivers a full bodied, diverse sound range, fit for the multiracial crowd at the Shades bar on Sunday evening.

Venue/Dates/Show Time: Shades, No 1, Anifowoshe Street, Off Kofo Abayomi, Victoria Island: May 15, 2022. Time: 7pm.
