the hip hop event
From September 29 to October 2nd, 2022, renowned artists from across the continent will take Lagos by storm for a fascinating festival combining music, culture, lifestyle, and social impact. We are inviting creatives, civil society organizations and private sectors to come together and encourage young Nigerians to participate in the upcoming 2023 elections.
IMF is an immersive experience that will chart the way forward for the creative industry and social impact in Nigeria and on the continent. The festival includes a music seminar educating young music creators on socially conscious music and a worldwide live stream concert with some of the biggest musical acts coming together to celebrate Nigeria’s independence day.
The festival is not just about fun events though; it will also include live performances and raves with some of the most popular artists in Africa such as: M.I Abaga, Waje, Blaqbonez, Tomi Owo and more. On top of that, the Incredible Music Festival (IMF) will be giving up and coming artists a platform to showcase their talents.
In keeping with our ongoing #vote4nigeria and #iregistered campaigns, creatives will use their influence and encourage audiences to collect their PVCs and vote!
To everyone who ever said ‘Hip Hop is dead’, get ready to eat your words. One of Africa’s most popular rappers, Jude ‘MI’ Abaga, has announced the Hip Hop Event, which kicked off on the 30th of August at CCX Lagos. In collaboration with TASCK Creative Company and DayGenius (Rapper and owner of Battle Rap Africa), the event is a celebration of hip hop culture and will be headlined by some of the best rappers in Nigeria.
The success of the debut event, which had M.I. Abaga as the headlining act, laid the groundwork for the subsequent events, including the “Off the Top” edition, which included Dremo and attracted a sizable crowd of hip-hop fans. The event has featured performances and battle raps that are amusing, clever, inventive, and disrespectfully entertaining. With an impressive lineup of hip hop stars, the event is set to take over the creative scene in Lagos.
Come to CCX Lagos on the last Tuesday of every month to experience The Hip Hop Event!
