Once again Nigerian Corner proved itself to be, the place to be, at Notting Hill Carnival.
It was packed with explosive performances and fans sobbing once they heard of what they were missing.
There was plenty to eat and drink as Gbenga Adeyinka 1st kept the crowd hype and the Nigerian Corner initially began to fill up. Stars like Teju Babyface, Dir Sid, Dayo d1 adeneye, Sunday Are, Naeto C, Ayo Shonaiya, Alariwo of Africa and OK Nigeria Owner, Alexander Amosu.
The D3 dancers gave an energetic performance that had the crowd wanting to get on stage and showcase their moves too. Dizzy who is still hot off an exciting performance at JuliusAgwu’s Crack Ya Ribs gave the crowd another dose of what he is capable of. Honey B, Daughter of Fuji music crooner, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal KWAM 1 who is also still smoking hot off of her performance at Crack ya Ribs and showed the crowd why she is making waves and why they should watch out for her.
Moelogo graced the stage to show people why he’s the next big artist to watch out for with his sensational voice and banging beats.
The crowd was smiling and dancing all day long. If you missed it you missed out because Nigerian Corner provided the music, the food and the vibes and proved once again that if you come to carnival and didn’t stop at Nigerian Corner, you didn’t come to carnival at all. Tipsy and her dancer gave a sexy performance that left the audience with their jaws hitting the ground.
Lace and Nikki Laoye gave the crowd smooth vocals that left the crowd wanting more and Tillaman also gave an unmissable performance that had people applauding his showmanship. Also look out for Tipsy and her dancer….not to be missed. A lot of pictures but well worth the time.

And the audience, made up of a mix of Nigerians, Jamaicans, Britons (one British gentleman proudly wore a Nigerian emblem, T-shirt, and had a Nigerian flag with him all day), South Africans and Ghanians, happily danced to the cocktail of hits from all four DJs drawn from Lagos and the UK.
You can see everyone mixing, dancing to Wizkid, Davido and D’Banj; eating Nigerian food and wearing green-white-green.

This year, the carnival attracted over one million revellers, the highest numbers ever. And the Naija Corner had a good share of that, with thousands of people trooping in and out…...
August 2011 NIGERIA CORNER
It was Party time at the Nigerian corner of the Notting Hill carnival . The Event put together by a collaboration of DJ A music, R70 Music, First bank and the Lagos State Government. The Corner was filled with revellers branded in all versions and combination of Green & White, the Nigerian National colours.

Famous DJ Jimmy Jatt was on hand pumping Nigerian mega hit songs By the likes of D Banj, El dee Olu Maitain just to name a few, as the party went on, Live acts, JJC hit the stage warming up the crowd ,then along Banky W the Nigerian R & B crooner , Banky stepped out to a frenzied welcome by the female revellers. Banky’s performance was super entertaining and culminated with him tossing a few of his latest album release into the crowd.
On Banky’s exit a perfect set up for the performance of One Of Nigerias Biggest Stars, 9ice aka ALOPOMEJI, the crowd went wild dancing and singing along to all the hits, like Gongo Aso and the new hit Gbamu Gbamu 9ice ended his set and Jimmy Jatt once again entertained the crowds till the creeping darkness forced reluctant revellers to depart

CARNIVAL August 2007
We feel that the 2007 Notting Hill Carnival was a great success this year because it was a peaceful enjoyable event over the two days. The Sunday is called "children's day" but on the Monday, there were equal amounts of families with very small children to be seen everywhere which reiterates the point that the event has become safer over the years. Where we were positioned, we could see a steady stream of floats going by followed by adults and children in exotic costumes with different themes. Then behind them were members of the public who were happily dancing away in the hazy sunshine in the afternoon. Members of the public would stop by and dance to the music being played by our sound system, G I Roadshow and they would stay with us for some time as not only did they have the opportunity of listening to an eclectic mix of music from different genres, but there was the aromas of a wonderful selection of Caribbean food nearby, which added to the atmosphere. Overall, the Carnival was a huge success of which we thoroughly enjoyed participating in and will continue to do so, going forward. G.I Roadshow would like to thank the following djs and sounds for making this years Carnival an enjoyable event: Woman of Moods Mix Master J RS Digital G Rocky of Renegade International Sham and the Musical Touch crew D Science JJ and mc Sharky Cooney G
