Studio guests include the EME crew – Banky W, Skales and DJ Excusive – and there’s also an interview with EME’s Wizkid at his hotel room in the UK.
We also got to interview Bovi (who was chilling in America) via satellite and we gave him a studio challenge: to sing the national anthem for the rest of the length of the show!
Also, new EME recruits Shaydee and Niyola are introduced, via satellite, in Lagos for the first time ever on TV!
On top of all this we also have an exclusive P-Square interview in which they talk about their collaboration with Rick Ross and the journey so far.
This is also the first ever Big Friday Show brought to you by Glo.
