Showtime at the Apollo for Bow Wow and Friends

Bow Wow

This past Saturday, girls from all over New York’s five boroughs filled Harlem’s Apollo Theater to capacity to witness the audible treats of Bow Wow, Day26, and R&B singer Unique. As soon as the velvet curtains rose, young ladies wasted no time rushing to the front of the stage to get a closer glimpse at their favorite performers.

Def Jam’s newest artist Unique was the evening’s opening act. He jump-started the event and made throngs of fans scream in envy as he pulled one lucky lady on stage for an impromptu serenade. Although Unique may not have been the headliner, he left quite an impression on the crowd by closing his set with his debut single, “Beat of My Drum,” which was accompanied by a live marching band.

Mike, Brian, Willie, Robert, and Que, the fivesome that make up Day26, tore up the stage as well as their clothing during the concert. Willie slowly ripped off his shirt, much to the delight of the females in the crowd, and Que, on the other hand, made a bit of a mess as he lifted his shirt and proceeded to pour a bottle of water all over his body, causing a frenzy. The gentlemen crooned through newer records, such as “Stadium Music” and “Imma Put It On Her,” and delighted fans with older gems, “Exclusive (No Excuses)” and “Got Me Going.”

Headliner Bow Wow closed out the show, beginning his set by giving props to the many young artists on the scene. Although he did tip his hat to them, he also informed the crowd that they’re in no way his competition. The rapper-turned-actor performed a medley of hits, including “Fresh Azimiz,” “Bow Wow (That’s My Name),” and “Like You.” DJ Webstar also made a special appearance during the rapper’s set. Bow added his own verse to Webstar’s current smash, “Dancin’ On Me.”

    I think you guys are hilarious. Anyhow, I’m stopping to show love and throw some positivity that way. Big ups to the boy Bow for not letting all this negativity stop him pursue his countless dreams. Well, in the word of the wise..”1 million haters=1 million more promoters” Owww, that’s all me right there. lol. ’cause you know I’m so wise. (^-^)

    Well, I’d to chit-chat but it’s back to twitterland I go. Show me love and I’ll show it back. :)

    if u dont like him fine but dont wish him bad thats disgusting. You either are very young or not in touch with the Lord. HE wants all his young princes to shine even Bow Wow. Why not Bow Wow? He continues to work hard making fun music that has been enjoyed since 2001. Even his retractors know Bow Wow is a great performer. God Bless his work and talent.
