FREEDOM FEST : CELEBRATING NIGEZIE AT TEN
CELEBRATING NIGEZIE AT TEN AT FREEDOM FEST
Nigeria’s premiere music and lifestyle channel, Nigezie – Xtremely Nigerian, officially clocks 10 years on the first of October, 2016. This makes it not only Nigeria’s first indigenous music channel, but also Nigeria’s oldest indigenous daily music television platform. This has made it into a springboard for many of today’s top music acts as well as many other talented individuals from within and outside Nigeria.
INTRODUCING: FREEDOM FEST
The young person, in Africa generally and in Nigeria particularly, has always been at a disadvantage when it comes to self expression and share of voice in the public space.
FREEDOM FEST is a youth oriented music brand, created to celebrate the new found freedom of expression that young people currently enjoy, on an annual basis. It is also designed to serve as a reminder of how far they have come and a motivation for the long journey, filled with unending possibilities that still lie ahead. This event is in association with the One Lagos brand.
The theme for the first edition of Freedom Fest is #NigezieAtTen. No doubt the Nigezie – Xtremely Nigerian brand, has lived up to its name and mantra. Courage, Tenacity and Vision are the basic elements which we have identified as key factors that make up a phenomenon we have tagged “Spirit of the Nigerian”. We have, in the past decade represented the “never say die” attitude of the Nigerian youth in Nigeria and in the Diaspora.
The major objective of the concert is to entertain the fans, not treat them with the usual disrespect and disdain that most event organizers subject them to on a regular basis. Everything from the ticket pricing, to sales outlets, artiste lineup, security and safety measures is designed to ensure that they have a rewarding and pleasant experience.
The artiste lineup for the event will reflect a cross-section of the major acts that have stood out in the dominant music genres in Nigeria, in the past ten years. It will be an eclectic mix of all the usual suspects; pop, hip hop, R’n’B, dance hall, Afro beat, fuji, juju, high life and then some other African genres that made an impact on the Nigerian music space and the minds of the general public, in the past decade.
