Music Meets Runway also aims to promote networking among fashion industry professionals, including educators, retail buyers, fashion journalists, trendsetters, tastemakers and consumers. The event, over the years, has grown to become a permanent staple in end-of-the-year-calendar-offering on Nigerian fashion and entertainment scene. 2Face Idibia, Neato C, Dbanj, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Iyanya, Basketmouth, Dr. Sid, D’Prince, Femi Kuti have all graced the stage in the last four years.
