The Disk Jockey, who is currently undergoing his Masters Programme in the Department of Psychology at the University of Lagos, made this known at a briefing held yesterday in Lagos.
Irere, who themed this year’s event as Rewriting the Script 4.0, said that essence of the concert is to appeal to the negative perception people have towards bariga.
The lined up programme features concert and boxing championship.
He added that the concert was crafted in a way to unleash the hidden talents of the members of the community in the areas of music, dancing, singing, literary and debating and so many others.
Victor lauded the lawmaker representing the constituency at the Lagos Assembly, Hon. Rotimi Abiru and the Bariga Local Government Chairman, Hon. Kolade Alabi for their activeness and doggedness in changing its face through rehabilitation of roads and provision of other social amenities.
“Bariga, being noted outside and within the community for such vices as cultism, drug use, internet fraud, violence, school drop-out, robbery, among others.
“Bariga needs a new image, a new identity and a new story line; hence the theme- Rewriting The Script.
“So, it became an imperative for me to take the handle and steer a new course for Bariga and her people.
Therapy, however, noted that despite being notorious for the vices, Bariga is also widely known for producing prolific and highly valued entertainers such as Olamide, Dj Enimoney and 9ice
He added Tony Tetuila, Lil Kesh, Minus-2, Kofi, Bash and so many others.
Irere said that entertainment has always been proven to be a unifying force and a tool for providing amusement and lifting people out of their emotional, mental or financial setbacks either from being a performer or audience.
