As Africa’s entertainment and creative industry prepares for the ninth edition of the Nigerian Entertainment Conference (NECLive), the conference organizers, ID Africa, have announced the conference’s partnership with X3M Ideals, one of the fastest growing communication agencies.
Founded in 2012 by Steve Babaeko, X3M Ideas is an award-winning marketing and communication agency that has been strategic in delivering cutting-edge digital services and media strategies that resonate with youths to consumers.
With the return of NECLive as a hybrid event on Friday, April 29, 2022, leaders and key players in the entertainment and creative industry are set to share their experiences, ask thought-provoking questions, brainstorm and seek to circumvent the challenges plaguing the industry.
To build on the success the African entertainment and creative industry has established so far, NECLive9 is themed, Sustaining The Africa Momentum.
Speaking ahead of the event, Femi Falodun, CEO of ID Africa, said:
“Creativity, pop culture, technology and youthful energy are some of the most powerful forces that can create meaningful social and economic change in Africa today and tomorrow.
