Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.

~Plato

Sometimes, I get too comfortable in my comfort zone and don’t want to go anywhere. I’m really glad Monday was not one of those days I get dressed and change my mind (Ahhh surprised right!) I do that a lot.

How could I miss good music, good food and great company? No way!

Many of you might know Mr Niyi David of Morecreamthancoffee from my travelers tales series and when he invited me for an evening of good music, good food and great company at the backyard of Lagos with Ruby Gyang the sensational singer, I’m glad I could attend. It was an opportunity to also meet him, he has been my online buddy for so long.

The show was organized by Ruby Gyang and friends at backyardyard of Lagos. Apart from traveling and reading another thing I enjoy most is good music; good music is like a food to the soul that’s needed most times to fuel the energy within you. 

Ngohide Ruby Ann GyangGyang, better known by her stage name Ruby Gyang, is a Nigerian singer and songwriter. She is currently signed to Chocolate City.

Different sensational singers came to sing and it’s amazing how many great musical talents we have in Nigeria that are yet to be well known.

The night was definitely a great one with the ambience and setting at the Backyard of Lagos. It was also my first time going to the restaurant.

The Backyard of Lagos is a restaurant located at Musa Yar’Aduua St, 4B, VI Lagos. We had different varieties of meat, prawn, groundnut meat, fish, etc (I don’t know the general name of the dish, if you know please tell me in the comment section) during the show.

Also had my first taste of beer; Budweiser. Budweiser beer was one of the official sponsors of the Ruby Gyang with friends show. And every beer lover I asked love the drink.

Ps: I don’t like the taste of the beer, sorry to the beer lovers here.

The incredible MI Agbaga came to close the show with the host and it’s definitely a night to remember for a very long time.

Do you agree we have amazing talents that are yet to be well known in the country and what do you think can make them be well known staying true to their own song, not the normal shouting songs we glorify?

And have you been to backyard of Lagos before and will you like to go if you’ve never been there?

  1. Sounds like you had a great night out. I agree we need to pay more attention to unconventional artists who make meaningful songs. There are so many gems out there that don’t make it to the limelight. I had never heard of Ruby Gyang before now, I’m going to go check her out.

    PS: I also don’t like the taste of beer. Although, I once tried a cherry flavoured one which wasn’t bad at all.

    • Yeah I did.
      Ruby Gyang is gold, you should definitely check her out. I pray we get it right to make this gems well known.
      Lol thank God I’m not alone in this dislike for beer thing.
      Thank you for stopping by dear.
