It's indisputable that Benue State people are fun lovers. It shouldn't be surprising therefore that entertainment in Benue is always well attended. Christmas live in Benue that featured Banky W and Terry G was surely not an exception as the Aminu Isah Kontagora Arts Theatre Complex, venue of the show was filled to capacity despite the entrance fee.

The Love Idoko-led Dream Pointers Limited, organizers of the show , while speaking on why they brought Banky W and Terry G to Benue said 'we wanted people to have fun and we wanted something new. So since Banky W and Terry G have not been to Benue before and because they're crowd pullers we invited them'.

Christmas Live in Benue was graced by dignitaries including celebrities and it was a first class event. It was also a sort of home coming for award winning musician, Terry G whose performance that night was his first in Benue, his state of origin.

For budding talents like comedian Batty boy, Chuks, B Sleenga, Da izo, it was a rare opportunity to show the stuff they're made of.

Banky W left ladies screaming in excitement with songs like Capable, Strong thing and Lagos Party .

Terry G held the audience spellbound with his stagecraft and hit tracks like Ginja Seduction , Free Madness, Bad bele , and Riding with my boo .

Love Idoko added 'I'm very happy with the success of the event as it has proved that it's not only our free shows that can attract a large turn-out.

From what I saw at Christmas Live In Benue, Benue state has come of age entertainment wise'.
