The brand is committed to changing the narrative and giving a facelift to Warri, by amplifying its rich culture and potentials, and also using the platform to influence peace and tribal oneness, attracting investors, and boosting the socio-economic activities of the city.”

He added that with the success of this year’s event, the Rave Warri brand remains unwavering in its vision of reclaiming and placing the city on the world map where investors can partner and support the growth and socio-economic opportunities in the state.
