In the spirit of giving and sharing, inhabitants of Makoko community of Lagos state witnessed a charity concert on Saturday 16th December 2017, the first of its kind in the neigbourhood. The line-up activity was aimed at spreading love and highlighting the value of happiness and joy.
The Makoko community is indeed blessed with numerous creative and artistic talents as the inhabitants displayed their skills as singers, dancers, fashion designers, performers and Master of Ceremony. The children also participated in healthy singing and dancing competition with the winners awarded gifts. The competitions were aimed at encouraging local talents within the community.
Relief supplies including clothing, shoes, bags, toys and edibles were distributed in the community at the close of the concert.
The event tagged “HAPPINESS IS FREE” was organised and executed by DownTown Promotion (DTP) along with several volunteers. The event featured guest artiste performances including Okal and Mikel who thrilled the crowd with songs and dances.
The success of the project would not be possible without the help of support systems who arose to the call to better human lives. Many thanks to supporters, volunteers and contributors who brought to life the idea nurtured in silence, helping to bring smiles to hundreds of faces and sharing joy all around.
Happiness indeed is not tied to monetary and socio-economic values. It is freely given, received and shared!
