Big Brother Africa star Uti Nwachukwu recently gathered friends and colleagues in the entertainment industry at a charity gig organized by his Fans Club at Ojez Restaurant, Lagos.
Showbiz Trends learnt that the event, aimed at helping the needy in the society had in attendance several celebrities, who trooped out in their numbers to donate food items and material things to the less privileged, especially widows and the physically challenged, who had been selected from different parts of the state.
For Uti, this was just his way of celebrating the festive season and also appreciating Godâ€™s goodness to him through the year.
Speaking about the event, Uti said the year has been â€œa very good and successful yearâ€ for him. â€œThis year alone I have won four awards, featured in five movies and also anchored many shows.
â€œFor me, this year has been rewarding both financially and career wise. So I thought instead of spending on partying and getting drunk with friends, why not spend the money on people who the society has forgotten, like the widows and physically challenged children who are in need. And what better time to do that other than the season of love, a time of sharing,â€ he said.
Among the celebs in attendance were Nollywood stars Tontoh Dike, Susan Peters, Desmond Elliot, Alex Ekubo and Micheal Okon.
Others are Moyo Lawal, Halima Abubakar, Chika Ike, music diva Goldie, Bryan Okwara and Keneth Okoli, both former Mr. Nigeria, and former Gulder Ultimate Man Micheal Nwachukwu with the recently crowned Ultimate Man, Christopher Okechukwu.
