More Than 4,000 Children And Families Bring Nickelodeon Africa's First Ever NickFest In Nigeria To Life

Africa - Nickfest made its debut in Nigeria last weekend courtesy of Nickelodeon, the popular family entertainment TV network owned by Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa), in partnership with Maltina!

The two-day fun-filled festival, which is by far Nigeria’s largest family-centric festival was all shades of fun as kids splashed around in thousands of litres of gloriously gooey slime at the legendary Slime Zone. The venue was transformed into a massive kiddies’ wonderland with amazing toys, fun games and activities, and plenty of color, notably the bright orange Nickelodeon and Maltina logos, which helped achieved a vibrantly playful ambience.

Hosted by IK Osakioduwa and Emmanuela of Mark Angel Comedy, Nickelodeon welcomed over 4,000 kids and families to Nigeria's first-ever NickFest, held at the Balmoral Convention Centre, Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos over Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November 2017.

The organizers were also able to bring in top-notch popular celebrities like Yemi Alade, Mr. P (Paul of P-Square), illbliss, Simi, Chioma Akpotha, Ill Blizz, Mr. Eazi, Samantha Walsh and Ehiz who got slimed several times over to raise awareness and funds for The North East Children’s Trust. Parents and guardians also had a wonderful time channeling their inner child as they joined the slime dunk at the Slime Zone. The music stars entertained the attendees with their family-friendly songs setting the whole venue into a fun-filled sing-along stage.

The festival also featured the popular Nickelodeon show characters, Shimmer & Shine, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles -
Leo, Donnie, Raph and Mikey - and Paw Patrol's- Ryder, Chase, Marshall, Rubble and Sky, who dazzled both kids and parents with amazing performances.
