On Friday the March 31, 2023, over 6,000 students at the Amphitheater of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in Nigeria had a night to remember as they witnessed the first edition of #TheXpressionwithCDO Campus Tour. This tour, led by CDO, the convener of the afrogospel movement, will travel to over 50 tertiary institutions across the country.
Several urban gospel musicians, including Moses Bliss, Mike Abdul, Testimony Jaga, Protek, and Gaise Baba, accompanied CDO on this tour. Other artists such as Timi Phoenix, Bouphy, Fidoclef, Mendo Ayo, and Fega Michaels also graced the stage with their performances.
Mike Abdul got the show started with his classic hits, setting the mood for the Jesus Party that was about to begin. This was followed by back-to-back street gospel anthems from Mendo Ayo, Fidoclef, and Bouphy. Timi Phoenix organized a dance-off and prize giveaways for students, a trend that was later adopted by
Michaels and Moses Bliss, the headliner of the night.
Protek and Gaise Baba raised the bar with their performances. Testimony Jaga took it a notch higher by engaging the crowd and leading them to Jesus. CDO shared his story and performed songs from his Album of the Year, paving the way for Moses Bliss to bring the night to a close with his chart-topping hits.
Aside from the electrifying performances, there were also side attractions such as a rap battle between students and a raffle draw. Winners went home with gift items from Boomplay, Dreamworks, and Belloxxi.
The Xpression with CDO Campus Tour will soon announce its next stop. Follow CDO and The Xpression on social media for updates:
