FouKi didn’t miss his shot at his first show at the Videotron Center

Accessible and energetic rhythmic rap, an audience that wanted to party and guests, a good sound and a very energetic and dynamic performance, FouKi gathered the right ingredients for his first visit to the Videotron Center.

As he sings in SPALA, the third title of the evening, in a duet with Vendou, the recipe for spaghetti bread with garlic was a great success. All ingredients were present and especially tasty.

The presence of many guests, with Alicia Moffet, Petit Bellevue, Impossible, Vendo, Corias and Jay Scott, contributed to this great evening of family hip-hop.

A rising figure in Quebec rap, Fouki performed on a huge stage, in half an amphitheater with about 4,000 spectators. Audience from young to very young with many parents giving their children their first show experience. We were rocking and shaking our heads on the ground and in the stands. There was atmosphere.

The scenery is majestic. There is a platform and eight musicians and singers. During the ceremony, we will also visit the dancers and mascots with big heads. There were many people on the boards.

“But tell me where the love is,” sings Leo “FouKi” Fougères, who sang lead on almost all of the songs on his new album, Zayon.

The crowd is participating, and the 26-year-old rapper got the impression that he’s in front of a crowd twice as large as during his visit to Place Bell, in Laval, on April 8.

“You’re burning up in Quebec. It’s unbelievable. I feel like home,” he said, before later returning a Nordique jersey to Zion.

St-Han Quinzou, with a visit to P’tit Belliveau, sparked a moment of sheer frenzy with nearly twenty people on stage, celebrating “St-Jean” beforehand.

“It’s party time. Go crazy on the right track. Evening party,” they sing. This was exactly what happened.

FouKi had saved himself from the big bombs of the finale with On L’Fait with Imposs and for the appearance of Ciel, with Alicia Moffet, co-pilot with Jay Scott, dressed in a Remparts shirt and Gayé, where FouKi, accompanied by a guitarist, was standing on a box, Near the sound and lighting unit.
