Ekobeats is the third of twelve events organized by Eko Tourism Art and Culture Series curated by the Lagos State Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture and Ebonylife Place, in partnership with other leading organizations keen on promoting Nigerian arts and culture.
It was set-up to showcase some of the rising stars in the Lagos music industry.
The musical event is set to hold yesterday, Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at the Victoria Hall, Ebonylife Place, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The event was organized to give upcoming vocalists the opportunity to show-off their talent in an open-mic session.

Sensei Uche is the host while other entertainers like Avala, SGaWD, DJ SkoolBoi and several other Afrobeats artists are expected to give life to the event by performing on stage.

“EkoBeats is our celebration of this world-class music that has created economic opportunities and employment for our young people, and continues to create positive ways for them to realise their true potential” She said.
