A day-long event with music, fun, laughter, celebrities and more! That was the experience of everyone who attended the music festival – Gidi Culture 2014. The day-long event offered revelers the opportunity to enjoy a day out with friends and family in a safe environment. The first of its kind anywhere in Nigeria today, the spectacular event was put up by Eclipse Live, the producers of the event, and was aired live on Channel O throughout Africa.

A day of fun-filled activities was lined up for festival-goers including the beach soccer tournament, with brand partner Nokia, treating a lucky few to its new Nokia Asha phone in a scavenger hunt.The food court with its varied range of vendors provided visitors with an option of ‘home’ food and continental dishes. This allowed visitors to pick up their food and enjoy the beach setting before the much-anticipated music performances kicked off.

    The stage and security were great, but as at 9 when my friend and I left, no major act had performed. Considering it was a Sunday, I thought they should have taken non entertainment industry people into consideration and scheduled main artists earlier since there was work thenext day.

    Denrele sha. One minute he looks lighter than the sun, next minute he looks well toned and then he looks alright. Here, he kinda looks ok tho. But he is so nice, he walked up to me and said hi at the show. Loved his brief stunt on stage with Xclusive. But that red leather top he wore, Abeg Denrele this na Lagos beach not Alaska.
