‘RepYourHood 9th edition will be special’

The 9th edition of RepYourHood (RYPHD), a show put together to provide platform for budding entertainers in Ibadan, Oyo State, would come with a special treat this time, the organisers have assured.

The leader of GTS gang and founder or RepYourHood, Akeeb Lawal, disclosed this during an intereactive session with newsmen at Agodi Gardens, Ibadan, Oyo State, on Thursday.

The show, which many youths in Ibadan and its envrons always look forward to, is in its ninth season and will hold at the Options24/Seven, Ikolaba GRA, Ibadan, next wek Friday with top Ibadan popular acts already lined up to headline the gig.

The show has become one of the favourite events that unite the youths in the city and provide them the needed platform to showcase their talents and take their career to a new level through the platform.

According to Lawal, RepYourHood was created to serve as a support platform for budding entertainers.

“As an artiste management outfit, we know how difficult it is for artistes to get opportunity to perform at major events. This show gives these acts an opportunity to perform for an audience made up of mainly industry playmakers, thereby allowing them direct access and interact during and after the show.”

We have partnered with radio stations and DJ association to provide qulaity disc jockeys for the event.”
