    An insider told TheNETng they are trying to raise funds for the park and the show – which has also featured Shina Peters, Nneka, Dammy Krane, Sound Sultan, and Simi. In his words: ‘They are trying to raise funds for the park and Afro-vibes, and the gate fee will remain N1,500 till the end of this year.’
