On the importance of the music show, Onyemaechi said: “It will go down in history as the biggest gathering of Ndi Owerri (Owerri people); that is, those who had something to do with Owerri since 1976 when Imo State was created; so a great feeling of nostalgia will be provoked at the show. Those expected to attend are coming from all over the world. They are drawn from old boys of Emmanuel College, Holy Ghost College, Government College, all in Owerri as well as those who were in tertiary institutions (1976-1986), a period that witnessed rock music explosion featuring those artists.”
