Bole Festival started in 2016 when the founder, Chinonso Iwuh gathered a few people for Bole hang out.
Today, it has become a brand attracting thousands of people all over the country to Port Harcourt such that even governorship aspirants like Tonye Cole of APC are putting up an appearance and using the platform to connect with more people for political advantage.
This year’s edition featured artists and comedians like Ruger, Ajebo Hustlers, Mr Funny , GSN among others , while brands like Tiger Beer, Techno Mobile and BOLT were some of the major sponsors.
Bole Festival has not only promoted Rivers culture but it’s perhaps the biggest platform for business and talents promotion. We particularly love how the organizers give young talents especially musicians and comedians the platform to showcase their gifts and talents.
On flip side, it seems the organizers got a lot of things wrong this time going by the complainants on social media about ticketing, ticket prices, food prices , etc.
See some of the complaints and suggestions below:
Meanwhile, this is not in anyway to talk down on their efforts, no, we are hoping they will pay attention to this and do better next year. Like MR Prof said, ”Bole Festival na for all of us”.
