#RSVPConcerts: Season 1 is a Wrap!

A big thank you to the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA), for supporting the 5 concerts we hosted in PH, Kaduna, Jos, Owerri & Lagos to encourage young Nigerians to pick up their PVCs and enjoy an evening of music and fun.

We are also hugely grateful to 2Face, MI, Ice Prince, Frank Edwards, Reminisce, Brymo, Gbenga Adeyinka & Ortisefemi who gave their time & talent. Thank you to our partners in each city for their support as well.
