Nigeria’s commercial city, Lagos will make headlines again as host of an international music festival – the Gidi Cultural Festival.

Slated for March 26 at the Eko Atlantic, organisers say the event will feature a line-up of top and up and coming acts from Nigeria and South Africa, including Davido, Tiwa Savage, Phyno, Yemi Alade, Timaya, as well as South Africa’s K.O and Riky Rick who will be performing in Nigeria for the first time.

The festival’s founder, Chin Okeke, describes the show as one that defines the progression of music and urban youth culture in Africa.

“The festival was naturally born in Lagos because the city is the melting pot of the continent, yet it maintains a global outlook. Our lineup represents the current crop of African music stars,” said Okeke

Produced by Eclipse Live Africa, Gidi Fest is also expected to feature the likes of Adekunle Gold, Small Doctor and disc jockeys.

The show which will be hosted by MTV Base VJs; Nomuzi from South Africa and Nigeria’s Ehiz, alongside City FM OAP, Sensei Uche, DJ Obi and DJ Kaywise will also feature some comedians.

There is also the return of ‘Flow with The Beat’ competition which gives up and coming talent a chance to perform live on the Gidi Fest stage. Everyone has a chance to partake in the competition #LiveYourMusic by downloading the Gidi Cypher beat produced by DJ Chopstix, flowing over the beat and sending it in to the Gidi Fest team for review.

The festival is in collaboration with Eko Atlantic, Lagos State and Heineken with support from Red Bull, Mikano, South African Airways, Eko Hotel and Hyperia.
