Lagos agog as Glo sponsored ‘One Lagos Fiesta’ winds up tonight
The 2016 edition of One Lagos Fiesta will be brought to a close tonight with a spectacular countdown to the New Year at the five venues including the Eko Atlantic on Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island.
The initiative introduced by the government of governor Akinwumi Ambode last year to round off the year and usher in a new one in a mood of excitement is being supported for a second year running by telecommunications company, Globacom.
The company’s participation in the event entailed running stands in all the five locations the event is held across the state. The telecom company treated guests to evenings of sublime entertainment, which featured music, comedy, dance, games and competitions at the Agege centre on all the centres while the event lasted.
At the Ikorodu centre on December 26, Nollywood actor and Glo ambassador, Odunlade Adekola, who was at the telecom stand, attracted fun-seekers who for some minutes jettisoned what they were doing, just to see and touch the celebrity.
Odunlade, commended the telecom company for making telephony easily accessible to the masses and urged guests to continue to patronize the company as it is a wholly Nigerian brand.
He stated that Glo is a truly people-oriented network with commitment to entertainment by the magnitude of support it is giving to the One Lagos Fiesta, and he was proud to identify with the brand.
The telecom firm also provided sublime entertainment in other venues where the event held such as Epe, Badagry and Victoria Island. In all the venues, the company provided fun game facilities such as snookers, table soccer, ludo, traditional Ayo game, and cards, among others.
Other entertainers who kept the audience busy at the Glo stand include comedians, Marcathy and Koloman at the Agege centre, while DJ Galaxy provided sound beats for the crowd.
Highpoint of the event were the various competitions keenly contested by fun seekers, mainly youths, who had stormed the Agege stadium venue. Jolayemi Kehinde, a student of Yewa Junior High School, Agege, won the catwalk competition, while Abba Mohammed, a student of Vetland Junior College, Ifako Ijaiye won the recitation of the National Anthem.
Mercy George, a pupil of CAC Nursery and Primary School, Agege, and Sanusi Abiodun, a pupil of Sound Planet College, Agege, won in two different dancing competitions.
