To everyone that has been asking me for photos from the latest event I covered, here is a summary of everything.
Egor Efiok was invited to the presidential villa for the launch of 1st Time Nigeria's Creative Industry Brand called ''FASCINATING NIGERIA'' and she took a team of celebrity friends with her. She also invited me, Daniel Sync, to cover the event and do the PR, so here are all the photos I took from our arrival in Abuja to when we attended the event. Here are some of the friends from Egor's team: Obi Emelonye, Charles Novia, Patience Ozokwor, Enyinna Nwigwe, Susan Peters, Oge Okoye, Igoni Archibong, Eva Alordiah (rapper), Chuma X Ajufo, Moses Efret, Victor Akande (Nation Paper), Venita Akpofure (aka model Vee Vee), Yvonne Nwosu, Emdee David, Ola Mustapha.
It was my first time visiting the presidential villa and I really enjoyed covering the event. The Minister For Culture And Tourism, His Excellency, High Chief Edem Duke, gave a very inspiring speech and what I loved most about him was the way he went around all the tables to thank the guests and everyone. He took time to pose for photos and was very pleasant to everyone. He particularly spent time with us too. What a nice jovial man.
Egor was given two tables for herself and her friends, so she had to keep fleeting between both tables to sit with them. There were also other A-list stars in attendance like Sir Olu Jacobs, Sam Dede, Segun Arinze and Genevieve Nnaji.
A very interesting documentary was shown about everything that is FASCINATING NIGERIA right now and different areas of entertainment were showcased along with all the invited guests. Nollywood got a big cheer and when Egor's photo came up on the screen, "Team Egor Efiok" did not disappoint! We all cheered and hooted and popped champagne! Even Sir Olu Jacobs, who also sat at our table with us, was hooting loudly and for the first time, Egor (aka Lady Boss) actually looked shy! Patience Ozokwor (aka Mama G), Sir Olu Jacobs, Obi Emelonye and Kunle Afolayan, were all acknowledged and given a standing ovation. Genevieve Nnaji also came over to say hi and sat at our table for a few minutes.
Iyanya, P-Square and 2baba also got us dancing with their chart topping tunes. AY comedian also entertained which was okay...can someone please tell him to change his "Jim Iyke" record though? I love AY n' all, but his jokes are getting a bit rusty, so he needs to get new material. Lol.
'Bella Naija' also got a flash (wink), as the photo of Egor that was used to showcase her (attached), was from their site. There must be something about this photo, I saw it once in Complete Fashion Magazine under the title, 'Sheer Beauty' and I remember shouting, "Up Lady Boss"!
I wish I could tell you more, but I ain't Charles Novia (lol), and as he was part of our team, I will leave the rest to him. If you ask me however, FASCINATING NIGERIA was truly FASCINATING!
