It’s a first of its kind festival that will be held annually in Nigeria ???????? and Sweden ???????? .
Hopefully other countries will be added to the list as we intend to go around the World since there are DJs everywhere.
It is designed particularly to also show people what a Legendary Nigerian achieved in Sweden ???????? in the 1960s which is an inspiration and motivation to the Youth of Today.
In fact, it shows that Nollywood has been BIG before it was acknowledged in the 21st century.
Until his death in 2016 he was the most popular Nigerian Artiste who was not living in Nigeria and played all over the World. He was a friend of Fela KUTI during their school days in England in the 1950s to 1960s and played at The Shrine in 1981 and 1982 when he visited Nigeria.
