Thousands attend third NickFest
Viacom-owned children’s TV channel Nickelodeon held the third edition of its NickFest event last weekend at Federal Palace, Balmoral Event Centre, Lagos.
More than 6,000 parents and children attended the two-day event, which featured performances from Nigerian musicians such as Patoranking, Teni, Fireboy and Rema.
Hosted by presenter Mannie Essien and Nigerian singer and dancer Amarachi Uyanne, the event also included appearances from Nickelodeon’s superstar characters such as SpongeBob Squarepants and the Paw Patrol pups.
Alex Okosi, executive VP and MD of BET International and Viacom International Media Networks Africa, said: “We are indeed grateful that our family-centric TV entertainment content was transformed to an event experience that has brought joy and entertainment to families.
“We have had an incredible show of support from parents and kids year after year, and NickFest in Nigeria continues to gain more fans.”
