It was a carnival of music, comedy and food on Friday November 24, 2017 at Queens Park Centre, Oniru Estate, Victoria Island, Lagos, as top Nigerian entertainers teamed up to sing against hunger as well as pronounce the significance of agriculture.
Organised by HEDA Resource Centre in conjunction with Voice for Food Security and Oxfam Nigeria, the “United for Food Concert” was headlined by Naija Ninja sensation and Oxfam ambassador, Sound Sultan. It equally paraded some other popular artistes like Vector Tha Viper, Baba Dee, Niniola, Blackah, Lami and Lawizzy while DJ Spinall was in charge of the wheel of steel.
Kicking off with a star parade on the ‘green carpet’ and anchored by MC Ushbebe, the show opened with a coterie of up and coming acts who used the opportunity to showcase their talents. The concert later began on a high note with Vector Tha Viper coming on stage and rendering a couple of songs including his hit tracks like ‘Lose Myself’ and ‘King Kong’. Other artistes followed in quick succession.
Commenting on the concert, Sound Sultan said as Oxfam goodwill ambassador, his mission is to utilise his music as a weapon against hunger. While urging Nigerians and governments at all levels to invest in agriculture so as to ensure food security in the country, the musician stated that no Nigerian deserves to go to bed hungry.
