Trigmatic Set To Rock Felabration 2022 in Nigeria On Friday 14th

Ghanaian Award-winning rapper and singer, Nana Yaw Oduro-Agyei  widely known as Trigmatic set to rock patrons at Africa Shrine In Ikeja Lagos Nigeria.

The organizers of FELABRATION invited Trigmatic to participate in a piece of week-long music, culture and arts festival commemorating and celebrating the life and times of Nigeria’s foremost musical icon, the great Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

The annual Festival is aimed at applauding one of Nigeria’s iconic creators of the Afrobeat Genre, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti who has been staged in Lagos for over 19 years and has become a veritable tourist attraction with musicians, artists, poets, intellectuals, entertainers and bands coming from all over the world and another part of Nigeria.

The symposium series, with the brand name ‘The Fela Debates’ originated in 2009 as part of the main content of Felabration. The event, now in its 14th edition has grown over the years to bring the much anticipated and traditional curtain raiser to the Felabration festive week.

The symposium format is chaired by a moderator and provides for a scheduled time slot, usually 30 minutes, for guest speakers to speak on the topic of the day and concludes with a lively audience interaction where the panel of speakers are interrogated in a question and answer session.

Renowned guest speakers over the years include current Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, Professor Wole Soyinka, Femi Falana SAN, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Professor PLO Lumumba, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo, Dele Farotimi, Tony Nnadi, Professor Sophie Oluwole, Dr Obi Ezekwesili, Chidi Odinkalu, Arikana Chihambori Quao, Donald Duke, Babajide Kolade Otitoju, Omoyele Sowore, and Bobi Wine.

The topic for this year is “Election 2023, Action Time.” With Edmund Obilo as moderator, the guest speakers are Bishop Hassan Kukah, Professor Kingsley Moghalu, Kadaria Ahmed and Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed.

Felabration 2022 kicks off at 11 am on Monday 10 October with the symposium at NECA House Auditorium Hakeem Balogun Street Alausa Ikeja CBD.
