The anchor person for the event MC Kirikiri reeled out jokes to the amusement of distinguished guests.

An Afrobeat band named Fela’s was the first to entertain guests, while performing the band gave a good account of itself by playing lots of the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s oldies like Water, Zombie and others.

After the initial musical interlude by Gospel singer Seun Aransiola, Kolade Onanuga the fast rising fuji star who is also from the Onanuga family, mounted the stage to honour the woman popularly called Aunty Toyin.
