Nigeria's Federal Capital City, Abuja, will not remain the same from Sunday, August, 2009, and the reason is over AY, the multiple Award winning comedian invades the city with his (usually sold-out) comedy and music concerts, AY Live.

Branded, AY Live, Abuja Invasion, and billed to hold at Sheraton Hotel Abuja, the concert, œis designed to satisfy the entertainment yearnings of lovers of comedy and music in Abuja with the invaluable and entertaining presence of Gordons, Bovi (aka Akpos of the AY show), I go Save, Klint D Drunk, Seyi Law, Bracket, MI, Kelly Hansome, Timaya, Dj Zeez, J Martins, Terry G and a host of others, AY confirms.

Since the concert promos flagged off, Abuja residents have put a bug on AY's official phone lines with frank calls of how œwe cannot wait to see AY Live, and how we have bought and watched AY Live CDs, and appreciate AY's out-of-the-box comedy concerts.

Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus “Nzeribe, was in Abuja last weekend. Her text message, empazises the calls.

I am really so proud of you and your achivements, her solidarity message reads. People have been talking about the show here [in Abuja] and how they respect your work. I just want you to know i will always keep you in my prayers. keep up the good work.

Stella (along side Kate Henshaw-Nuttal), was one of the MC's of AY Live, Lagos Invasion 2. On Sunday, her younger colleauge, and City People's Actress of the Year, Mercy Johnson is MC. She will be joined by Frank ˜the millionaire Edoho.

Sweet memories of AY Live, Lagos Invasion 2, still inhabits history as the first sold-out comedy event of it's kind. The event, originally planned as a One-Show concert, turned out a Two-Show feat, thanks to the overwhelming crowd that were obstinate in their resolve to be part of AY Live.

AY takes his pacesetting ingenuity to Abuja with a VIP Limo Ride around town with artistes on the bill of AY Live, Abuja Invasion. At the event, he would be unveiling hi s new AY comedy & Style magazine (which will be distributed free).

AY Live, Abuja Invasion would be a hilarious overrun of Nigeria's Center of Unity, and ˜thunder is expected to strike twice at the same place, for AY who began his professional Stand Up, comedy career in Abuja. His debut performance in that city, 2006, was greetedith a ruptous animation. From then on, his fame spread; he became Nigeria's Upcoming Comedian of the Year; and in 2008 he was crowned the Comdeian of the Year “ six times!
