Nigerian children and families will soon get a taste of the sold out entertainment phenomenon called NickFest courtesy Nickelodeon (DStv channel 305). NickFest, Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMNA) in partnership with Maltina, launches this first fun-filled experience at the Balmoral Convention Centre, at the Federal Palace Hotel in Victoria Island in the month of November on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19.
Captivating audiences from various age groups with unique family-friendly activities, the weekend will feature live music from Nigerian A-listers, Nickelodeon show characters, Shimmer and Shine, SpongeBob Square Pants, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Paw Patrol.
A major highlight of NickFest is The Celebrity Slime Challenge, where popular personalities get slimed green in an effort to raise awareness and funds for The North East Children’s Trust project. Children and parents have the opportunity join the slime dunk at the Slime Zone.
Alex Okosi, Executive Vice President and Managing Director VIMN Africa said that launching NickFest in Nigeria is a major milestone for the VIMN Africa team.
“It provides an amazing opportunity to bring children and families together for a fun filled day featuring our famous TV characters, great music, awesome activities and lots of sticky slime. Nickelodeon is the definitive family friendly brand and we are proud to bring Nickfest to Nigeria for the first time,” he stated.
The two-day NickFest will welcome more than 2,000 children and families to The Federal Palace Hotel, transforming the venue into a bright orange Nickelodeon wonderland. Two shows will be held on both days at 11am and 3pm.
The organisers said the exciting details of performers will be released shortly.
NickFest provides excitement and interactivity for children and teenagers designated activities for pre-schoolers, primary school goers, tweens, teens and everyone in between.
