The Road to The Gidi Culture Festival : The NYSC Stop

NYSC 2014 Registration now open!

Registration for 2014 Batch ‘A’ has now commenced. Nigerian graduates can now register for mobilization from now till February 14, 2014.

The NYSC scheme was created in a bid to reconstruct, reconcile and rebuild the country after the Nigerian Civil war. The NYSC scheme has remained a key development scheme in Nigeria with the ultimate goal of establishing a united, strong and self reliant nation.

The scheme aims to inculcate in Nigeria’s youths, the spirit of selfless service to the community and to emphasise the spirit of oneness and brotherhood of all Nigerians, irrespective of social background.

Gidiculture festival is a strong advocate of the NYSC scheme with a strong belief that youth empowerment is key to the development of the society. The Road to Gidiculture Festival kicked off with a free concert at the Lagos States NYSC Camp in November last year.

"The Gidi Culture festival is all about empowering the youth as well as ensuring that entertainment is affordable and accessible to the youth" said Chin Okeke, Founder of Eclipse Live.

The show provided unknown artistes such as Uchman an opportunity to showcase their music to the crowd of over 3000, as well as sharing a stage with up and coming acts such as Nedu, Flowsick, Blink, Tesh Carter and Sammy.

‘We are looking forward to organising a similar concert after the success that we had last year.” Okeke said. “ It is important that we carry on engaging with the youth through the power of music and reminding them of their responsibilities to their communities and the society as a whole”.

The Gidi Culture Festival is scheduled to take place in March, with a lineup which boasts some of Nigeria's hottest young musical acts.
