Renowned superstars, 2Face, Pasuma, MI, Ice Prince, Yemi Alade, Burna Boy and Reminisce are among many others who confirmed their interest as the headliners who will thrill young enthusiastic voters at the Enough Is Enough Nigeria, an advocacy group.
The first-of-its-kind voter education concerts, which will hold in four major cities across Nigeria-Kaduna, Jos, Owerri and Lagos, follows the first edition held in Port-Harcourt on 12 December 2014.
It was in preparation for the 2015 elections. Organisers of the concert have also promised guest appearances from A-list personalities including Mr. John Momoh, CEO, Channels TV.
“These concerts will use music to educate voters on the need to participate in the election process. 15-minute interludes will also be used during the shows to promote the RSVP campaign. Entry will be free to those with valid voter’s cards while others will pay a token fee,” said organizers.
EiE Nigeria has also organized a Presidential and Governorship election debate series called ‘The Peoples’ Debate’ which will hold in Lagos, Plateau, Kaduna, Imo, Rivers, Taraba as well as a Presidential debate in Abuja.
Through its pre-election and post-election voter education strategies under its flagship RSVP Campaign, EiE Nigeria hopes to increase the participation of young people between 18 – 35 (62.5% of those registered to vote in 2011) in Nigeria’s growing democracy.
