The 6th Edition of Markdball tournament is here.
This year’s edition promises to be super interesting as the organizers have included so many other packages to make the tournament the best ever in the history of Mark-D-Ball.
 
The tournament will feature teams from all over the country plus some west African states in addition to  world class basketball stars, teams, coaches plus super side attractions that will include music, comedy, children clinic, and visit to orphanage homes.
 
Some of the stars expected to attend the event include the legend 2face Idibia, M.I, KCEE(Limpopo), Flavour Nabania, Sound Sultan, Vector, Ikechukwu Skillz, Mr.Ibu, Victor Osuagu and many more.
 
Mark-D-Ball is an initiative of Hon. Igoche Mark, the aim is He said is to help young people to become better citizens using the basketball medium. According to him, Nigeria could revive its image by encouraging the development of sports at the grassroots with the youth being the target.
In 2012, more than 250 children within the ages of eight to sixteen years were trained and from among them, some were selected after the training and given scholarships to go to school and also build up their career in the sport. The 2012 edition also gave birth to Markmentors basket ball club that was able to be ranked among the best three basket ball teams in the country in its first season in the DSTV basket ball league.
“This year the intent is to train more than 300 students in the basketball academy and those that excel would be given scholarships to further their education, the theme here is catch them young while we teach them how to develop their skills.
“We also encourage them to go to school; to use sports as a past time; the idea is we believe that if you train up a child early enough in his skill, he/she will grow up to become the Akeem Olajuwon of tomorrow and today’s celebrated sportsmen.”
Mark D Ball team will go up against a celebrity team of basket-ball  players, in a friendly game at the opening ceremony of the tournament drawn from Music, Nollywood and News Media.
Senate President David Mark, threw his weight behind this competition and made it a world class event that now employs youths from across Benue, Nigeria and around the world. it offers hope for the community and exposes the communities to business opportunities. 
 
The idea of this initiative is the Senate President’s commitment of getting the youths off the street through something they can easily relate to – sports.  During the tournament, participants are challenged to meet people and network therefore making efforts for the country to unite under one bond; there is a three part “code of living” that participants are encouraged to live by while participating in the tournament.  As individuals, as team members, and as members of society – the basic theme that runs through the code is: to try and develop ones skills to the best of their ability, and also to be aware that as a team player, you must consider your fellow team members and put the team’s personal goals ahead of yours.  One must also be aware that participating in the tournament means you must be ready to impact your community positively.

The Azuka video will change the norm, style, direction and concept of Music videos in Nigeria the moment it hits airwaves. We at SKP are very proud and happy with the video of Azuka. XProject and all their partners really did a great job on this project of Azuka, ”Kargbo, a respected lawyer averred.

Interestingly, aside the Azuka video, XProject is also ready to drop their latest album, which will be hitting the market before the end of the year.

Commenting on their new offerings, Saal and Slez, the creative minds powering XProject as a group, stated that the need to be different, daring and continually creative led to the birth of Azuka, its video concept as well as the fresh injections in their forthcoming album.
