Several music acts performed at the 7th edition of the City People Entertainment Awards that held at Yard 158, Oregun, Lagos yesterday and one of them was the singer son of late actress, Henrietta Kosoko, Taiwo Olowu otherwise known as L.T. L.T performed his new song Mama, a tribute song for his mum who passed away some weeks ago.
Other artistes who performed at the event included 9ice, Obesere, T.W.O, Falz The Bahd Guy, Small Doctor among others.
L.T started his career in 2009 and has a number of songs to his name. His first song was Jekafo which was produced by PhilKeyz and was followed by Se Jeje, Yobo Dance, Long Time, Uncommon and the most recent, Mama. He has announced that the video of Mama will be released this week.
Meanwhile, L.T has denied accusations that he’s using his mother’s death to further his career. In a recent interview with Punch, he said, “I did something to celebrate mothers. The song is a celebration of life and death. I didn’t do this song to advance my career, it is to express myself. We all have different ways of mourning. I am not using her death to sell my music. I have been an artiste before now and my late mum was supportive of my career before she died.”
