Calling All Kaduna Creatives! Celebrate at the Debut Agwa Carnival on Dec 30th.
Agwa, an annual maiden festival Carnival targeted at recognizing and promoting Kaduna Creatives will hold on December 30th at Rasolux Hotel, Kaduna State.
The event is being organized by Afrikraft Development Foundation in collaboration with Rasolux Blu.
Speaking with LEADERSHIP Friday, the Executive Director Afrikraft Development Foundation/Convener Agwa Streets Carnival,Derik Zai, explained that the idea came from his desire to rejuvenate and support creative minds in the community.
“I have been doing a couple of creative projects in Agwa for a while, and I discovered that there were no entertainment activities happening, despite having amazing creative minds around, so I want to ignite the entertainment atmosphere of the area and assist vulnerable people around too.I noticed that most of them are talented but don’t have the necessary tools and gadgets to forge ahead in their careers.
“The award night will honor individuals who have made significant contributions in various fields, from arts and entertainment, notably late high chief Bruno Iwouha, who will receive a post humous award for his love and support of creatives in kaduna.”
Zai, who is also the C.E.O. Odesco Records, added that the awardees were carefully selected, based on merit,those who put humanity first and have contributed in human capacity and social development.
Speaking on the measures put in place to address safety and security concerns during the carnival, he said “We have partnered with various security agencies to keep the area safe and make it conducive for our VIP’s, awardees and other guests in attendance.”
