As Nigeria clocks 52 on Monday October 1, Encomium Weekly and Primetime Entertainment are rolling out the green carpet for the annual Green and White Groove.
The famous independence party, put together to celebrate Nigeria and Nigerians has become one of the most important events on October 1. And the organizers say it promises to get even better this year – with more star performances, higher celeb attendance, a new, improved venue, and thousands of patriotic Nigerians coming out to celebrate their country.
“It’s the biggest, most exciting party celebrating the most populous Nation’s independence anniversary” says Encomium publisher Kunle Bakare.
‘There are challenges, but every year, we move forward. This year, we’re celebrating our nation, and the positive-minded citizens who are determined to make Nigeria great, in spite of the many hurdles on the way’.

Already confirmed for the Monday October 1 event are superstar DJs Jimmy JATT and Vinnie, as well as the Kennis Music All Stars.
“We’re having a dance and a party”, says Primetime’s Keke Ogungbe who adds that the event will be broadcast live on the Kennis Channel on Startimes.
The Green and White Groove will hold between 4 and 10pm on Monday October 1, at Anchor Event Place, Agidingbi, in Ikeja, Lagos. “Lagos will rock for six hours uninterrupted on Monday”, adds Keke’s partner Dayo Adeneye.
Those who truly care about Nigeria, who have as much stake as those in government and in the corridors of power, will participate in this event which renews hope and calls for greater dedication in nation building.
Guests, the organizers say, are drawn from pillars of comedy to giants of music and movies, serious professionals to incorrigible activists, super stars, uncommon entrepreneurs, to proud, positive Nigerians in all fields.
