The CEO of Gemstone Events, a newly established entertainment events outfit, Adeyinka Oloyede, has stated that to be self-employed is the best venture any enterprising person can embark upon.
She made the statement while speaking with P.M.NEWSEntertainment on why she left Arik Airline to venture into entertainment business.
The Microbiology graduate from UNILAG who disengaged from Arik Airline in February as Co-ordinator, Events and Sponsorship, to establish her own event management business, said: “I left because of my passion for entertainment events, branding or brand activation, and corporate communications.”
Oloyede hinted further that self employment brings out the best in people, who are passionate about their various endeavours.
She added that she has spent over 20 years in events packaging while she was also very active in hall activities on campus when former most beautiful Girl in Nigeria, Regina Askia and others were discovered.
The former Miss Pretty Face, Moremi Hall, Unilag, however expressed her great passion for youths’ activities and development, hence the creation of TGIF, a platform for youth development in music, fashion and creative arts among others.
Meanwhile, the debut edition of TGIF holds on Friday, 31 August, 2012 at Devineplus Luxury Suites, Ikeja, Lagos. Southwest Nigeria.
