KYEGH SHA SHWA CULTURAL FESTIVAL THEME UNVEILING & FUNDRAISING
The Kyegh Sha Shwa Cultural Festival is an initiative conceived and organized by the Tiv sons and daughters who are motivated by the need to engender the sustainability of Tiv cultural values
of unity, communality, reconciliation, harmony, hospitality, and love amongst the people to enhance the collective advancement of the Tiv nation. Formally registered in 2018 with the
Corporate Affairs Commission under the name Kyegh Sha Shwa Cultural Initiative, the Festival is organized annually from 26 – 27 December, and it attracts a huge attendance of Tiv people from
far and near, together with their friends and well-wishers, festival, and tourism enthusiasts from across the world, who either join physically or via the festival online platforms. In view of this,
the festival organizers host fundraising events ahead of the main festival to raise funds to cover the festival activities and to also formally unveil the festival’s theme and showcase the business
prospects of the festival to the corporate world.
For 2023, the theme is “Tiv Folklore: Separating Facts from Fiction” to be discussed by a panel made up of the following discussants:
1. Rt. Hon. Dickson Tarkighir, – Member, House of Representative NASS, Abuja.
2. Mr. Paul Apel Papel – Multiple Award-Winning Producer/Director
3. Devaan Hamation – Seasoned Broadcaster
4. Tim Cuttings Agber – Researcher on Tiv Indigenous Knowledge Systems
The ceremony will hold on November 4, 2023, at the African Heritage Square, Celina Ayom Street, along Kado-Gwarimpa Express Way, Jahi, Abuja. The event will feature performing artists,
games, Tiv cuisines (especially Kyegh Sha Shwa), endorsements, sponsorship deals, and lots more.
The 2023 KSS theme unveiling and fundraising ceremony will be under Zaki Chief Joseph I. Aneh, as the father of the Day and will feature imiongo i teman (panel discussion) on the theme.
