The official Nigerian Corner at the popular Nottinghill Carnival, in London will again host a galaxy of stars, this year as organisers announced, today, the line up of entertainers who have signed up to fly the Nigerian flag at the world-famous carnival.
Organisers Sodium Brands Solutions say hiphop hit-maker Eldee, iconic DJ Jimmy JATT, super-compere Tee A are some of the acts fans should expect to see this year.
Principal Consultant of Sodium Brand Solutions Abisoye Fagade says ‘There’s no better time than this, to preach and sell the Nigerian brand. And we’ll continue to do that at home and abroad, wherever well-meaning people are gathered. We must continue to tell – and show- the world, that there’s more to Nigeria than what the world thinks it knows…’
The Naija Corner is on Adela street, off Kensal road, (Harrow End), W10, London
Fagade says other performers will be announced in due time.
Last year featured dozens of participants from Nigeria and the UK, including Jimmy JATT, Banky W, Keke and D-One, 9ice, Julius Agwu, AY and JJC.
