Registration for 2014 batch ‘A’ NYSC has now commenced till Feb. 14

The Nigerian NYSC scheme was established in a bid to reconstruct, reconcile and rebuild the country after its Civil war.  The pre-civil war innocence that Nigeria lost in the midst of bloodshed and untold hardships also played out in human relationships, thereby threatening the 'One Nigeria' dream. This necessitated the need to create an avenue for both human, cultural and geographic exchange. The scheme also aims to inculcate in Nigeria’s youths the spirit of selfless service to the community, irrespective of their social, ethnic or religious affiliations...


Gidi Culture Festival is a strong advocate of the NYSC scheme; with a strong belief that youth empowerment is key to the development of the society. It understands that a society must invest in its youth in order to position itself for advancement. As the cliché goes, 'they are the leaders for tomorrow'.

The Road to Gidi Culture Festival kicked off with a free concert at the Lagos State NYSC Camp in November last year.

"The Gidi Culture Festival is all about empowering the youth as well as ensuring that entertainment is affordable and accessible to the youth" said Chin Okeke, Founder of Eclipse Live.


The show provided unknown artistes such as Uchman an opportunity to showcase their music to a crowd of over 3000 people, as well as sharing a stage with upcoming acts such as Nedu, Flowsick, Blink, Tesh Carter and Sammy. The exposure that these young artists got from theGidi Culture Festival initiative has helped to foster their careers and has created more exposure for them in the music and entertainment space.

‘We are looking forward to organising a similar concert after the success that we had last year.” Okeke said. “ It is important that we carry on engaging with the youth through the power of music and reminding them of their responsibilities to their communities and the society as a whole”.
The Gidi Culture Festival itself is scheduled to take place in March 2014, with a line-up that boasts some of Nigeria's hottest young musical talents in the industry.

The NYSC scheme remains a key development initiative in Nigeria, with the ultimate goal of establishing a united, strong and self reliant nation. To the NYSC March campers in Lagos, are you ready for the fun?
