40 years ago, in 1977, the world stood still as the Ngas sombi group led the procession of hundreds of musical groups from around the world (48 African Countries along with contingents from the UK, the Caribbean and Latin America) into the Main Bowl of the National Stadium, Surulere to celebrate the 2nd edition of the World Black Arts and Culture, FESTAC. YIL NGAS magazine remembers this momentous achievement, which came in the darkest hour of the Ngas nation.
