Masego & Ogi – The Fillmore – Philadelphia, PA – April 4, 2023
The night started off with Ogi, a Nigerian-American singer, who captivated the audience with her playful personality and beautiful vocals. She began the set with her song “Envy” from her EP titled “Monologues.” As she sang through her EP, Ogi interacted with the crowd and shared the inspiration for her songs. The story of her song “Let Me Go” came about from her telling a friend to get out of their toxic relationship. Ogi’s rhythmic and soulful music perfectly set the mood for the main event of the night, Masego.
As the clock ticked closer and closer to 9:00pm, the energy in the room began to rise in anticipation. Masego, a Jamaican-American musician, is known for incorporating the saxophone into his performance. Walking out from left stage with his saxophone in hand, his set commenced with one of his most popular songs, “Navajo,” released in 2017. It was impossible not to groove and move to the beat, as his music is so full of rhythm.
There is no doubt that Masego was born for the stage. His presence was blaring as he sang, rapped, and played the saxophone all night. He interacted with the crowd throughout the set, but a notable moment was when he threw roses into the sea of people during the song, “Mystery Lady,” which happened to be my personal favorite song. Another big moment of the evening was when he brought a lucky fan on stage and performed a passionate saxophone solo to her. The crowd was whistling and roaring.
In the second half of the set, Masego commented on his appreciation for the city. During an impromptu freestyle, he said “You know I love…,“ and had the crowd repeat back “Philly, Philly!” He ended the night with an encore of “Tadow,” his hit song which everyone sang along to. The entirety of Masego’s show was full of energy and great vibes. He is an extremely talented musician who exudes confidence and personality. The You Never Visit Me Tour will leave you in a great mood and is a guaranteed night well spent!
