ALL roads, indeed, led to the Abule Odu Bus Stop, Idimu Road based Hunters NiteClub in the heart of Egbeda, Alimosho area of Lagos on Sunday October 31 2018.

The event was the 'Old Skool Throwback' programme of the less than a year old club in celebration of the 58 independence anniversary of Nigeria.

Yes, it was indeed an old skool night and it was a blast. While the organises, the club's management, called it old skool throwback, the audience, mainly youths and some oldies who are still young at heart, like this reporter, called it a nostalgic night, no thanks to the kind of old skool music that the seasoned DJs on the steel of wheels 'spinned' all through the night to the delight of the crowd.

Billed to kick off at 7pm but did not get off the ground until 9pm; and when it did, the event which was supported by Hennessy, LG and others including onnlive.com, Classic FM and others sailed through to the early hours of October 1 2018 without hitches; except for a few seconds of power outage, which the Simeon Ehimare (manager) led management of the club, adequately responded to with its own private source of power supply.

Free gate event which attracted youths in and around Alimosho, saw them listen to and watched the DJs blast from their archives songs that ruled the airwaves in the 1980/90s in audio and video of both Nigerian and foreign musicians.

The arena became emotional when a song "Natty Gets Jailed" by Ras Kimono was played in his memory.

As part of the celebration, few minutes were set aside to wish reggae music legend, Orits Williki, who was in the building with his beautiful, lovely wife and a few others whose birthdays few on October 1, happy anniversary.

That down Williki, the birthday boy was invited on stage to mime songs from his debut album Tribulation that was released years ago on PolyGram Records stable. He sang two tracks, 'Give Me Likkle Time, I Will Fight The Fire' and 'We Can Change The System' and the roof almost came down in an applause to him.

That performance surely was the icing on the cake in the programme perfectly put together by Mr. Paul Omoruyi, the owner of the club, Mr. Ehimare, the manager and Mr Friend Nwaimo, a friend of the house.
