1. Oxlade — KU LO SA

This COLORS performance is undoubtedly the most significant Afrobeats performance ever featured on A Colors Show.

Right from his stage presence to his distinctive props, Rema’s performance stood out. He wielded his signature items, a teddy bear wearing a balaclava, adding a unique visual element to the performance, and instead of the typical booth setting, he opted to perform while seated, further setting him apart. Rema delivered the song with extraordinary vocal prowess and a strong stage presence, translating into an awe-striking performance. He also had a separate set for his song “Fame,” on the “A Colors Encore” segment, where he delivered as well.

Adding to the overall enchantment, Ayra incorporated subtle yet captivating choreography, further enhancing the entire experience.

5. Victony — Many Men

Victony, possessing one of the most unique and striking voices in the Nigerian music industry, effortlessly graced this Colors performance with his signature style. In this heartfelt single, he delves into his reminiscences of past struggles, all while touching on his near-fatal accident and miraculous recovery. This heartfelt performance stands out as not only exceptionally beautiful but also profoundly significant. Victony’s ability to channel his personal experiences into his music resonates deeply with his audience, making this rendition a reflection of his artistry and resilience.

This performance proved that he stands head and shoulders above the best in the industry.

10. Bnxn — In my mind

Two days before releasing his “Bad Since ’97” EP, Buju gave a live rendition of one of the studio singles at the ColorsxStudios. To no one’s surprise, everything about the performance was perfection. The theme of the song is centered on unreciprocated love and pretense in a relationship, and Buju’s delivery was nothing short of impeccable.
