Along side these designs, guests will also be treated to the performances of Expressions, Bez, Rooftop Mc’s, Cobhams, Clay, Sage and many more. With months of preparation behind them, the Counter Kulture Team have set up an event that is sure to become a diary staple inLagosand beyond. But you’d be wrong to think Counter Kulture was just an event, the team explains the necessity behind the platform which CK gives to today’s youth.
“Counter Kulture aims to tackle the issues young people face on their road to self-discovery; issues such as sex, addiction, peer pressure, addiction, low self-esteem, loss of individualism and lack of perspective. The core groups we are targeting through this initiative are university students (both home and abroad) and young professionals. Counter Kulture provides a platform for young people to find themselves, be happy with who they are, develop a relationship with God which in turn will help them face these challenges.”
What is Counter Kulture: Counter Kulture is an initiative birthed by Dr. Tony Rapu, Senior Pastor and Head over the ministry expressions; This Present House, God BlessNigeria, and The Waterbrook Churches. The vision is to raise and nurture today’s youth, tomorrow’s leaders who can change the negative and degrading values that seem to be the prevailing culture, which eventually erodes the larger society.
Previous Events: The Counter Kulture initiative stages a yearly event to bring young people together. Each event is unique and deals with the issues current to the season. Previous events have included talk shows on careers, lifestyle and marriage, fashion and music shows. Counter culture has benefited from the support of award winning designers, artists and songwriters such as Ituen Basi, Rooftop Mc’s and Cobhams.
The event is supported by BellaNaija and One Nigerian Boy
