Federal Palace Hotel witnessed an incredible fun-filled experience at the second edition of Nickelodeon family festival Nickfest on the 29th and 30th September thanks to Nickelodeon in partnership with Maltina. The event which had over 4,000 kids in attendance is one we can not forget in a hurry.
Hosted by the very friendly and hilarious duo of IK Osakioduwa and Nigeria’s Got Talent winner Amarachi the event was all shades of fun as kids were excited seeing their favourite animated Nickelodeon’s superstar characters live such as SpongeBob Squarepants, Adventure Bay’s intrepid pups, Skye, Rubble Marshall and Chase from Paw Patrol, the energetic Dora the Explorer with her animal rescuer cousin, Diego and her best pal, Boots to everyone’s favourite genies, Shimmer and Shine and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The kids event, was a blend of loads of fun and good music from Africa’s adored A- list music acts such as Nigeria’s iconic rapper, M.I Abaga, Simi, Adekunle gold and Mayorkun who satisfactorily entertained the children, parents and fun lovers with some of their family-friendly songs which of course got the whole venue in an endless sing-along. MTV’s Folu Storms, Cool FM’s Mannie, IK Osakioduwa as well as other celebrities in attendance, got slimed several times over to raise awareness and funds for indigent Children’s Trust project.
They all slithered around and bathed in thousands of litres of gloriously gooey slime in the legendary slime zone. The venue was transformed into a beautiful wonderland for the kids with amazing toys, fun game and activities, and plenty colour, notably the Nickelodeon traditional bright orange which helped achieved a beautiful, fun-friendly and relaxation ambience.
Speaking at the venue of the event, Alex Okosi, Executive Vice President and Managing Director VIMN Africa, owners of Nickelodeon, said: “Over the years, Nickelodeon has entertained families world over. With NickFest in Nigeria, we have translated our hugely popular and family-centric TV entertainment content to an event experience that resonates with audiences.
