The “African Unplugged Concert” held at the Wembley Arena in the United Kingdom weeks ago was a blast. Iyanya Mbuk, popularly known as Iyanya (winner of MTN Project Fame, West Africa, Season 1) brought some fire upstage as his performance lit up the whole arena, causing everyone to chant the beautiful songs he rendered. His performance was amazing.
