Terence Sambo hosts first edition of OneNigerianBoy networking event for Creative Professionals



The first edition of the OneNigerianBoy networking event for creative professionals took place on the 22nd of January 2011 at Bishop’s Cottage in Victoria Island, Lagos. The event was targeted at key people in the creative industry and was organised to create an intimate platform for people from different fields in the industry to meet and to help inspire creative collaboration.

The debut event was a small gathering with 20 young industry insiders invited for a delicious “family style” lunch. The event was well attended by creative professionals including stylists, fashion editors, fashion photographers, filmmakers, TV presenters and designers. The purpose of the event was fulfilled as many of the guests are already collaborating by working on innovative new projects.

The next edition of the event is tentatively scheduled for April 2011. According to Terence Sambo, the organizer of the event and Creative head of OneNigerianBoy, “My aim is to get a varied selection of creatives in and spark off collaborations that are advantageous to the industry here“.

    So basically the guy invites his friends out to lunch and it is supposed to be news? Bella please maybe it is time to consider including gossip on the site. Maybe then we wouldn’t have to abide such dreariness.

    By the way you can give Terrence and Lawal my number (08033130022). I can hook them up with some stylists.

    “Networking event for Creative Professionals”. Seriously?! These people would just be putting undue pressure on themselves. They should focus on building their brands/businesses and stop with all the irrelevant get-togethers and attention seeking. Who tagged them “Professionals”?! Sheesh! So not looking forward to moving back to Lagos. mscheew.

    How people get delight from being harsh and degrading the effort of others is beyond me.I remember when LPM started, people had lots of mean things to say …now LPM is a force to be reckoned with in Lagos.This is the first Terence meet/event and the sky is the limit for an initiative like this. You guys are the ones giving yourself heart attack over what someone else chooses to do with their time.

    Well done Terence.

      you need to chill out! are you the only one allowed to make comments here? OR are we only “allowed” to comment if it to your liking? it was meant to be a joke, after all, im not forcing you to agree with me.
      now i will return the favor. what makes YOUR style so hot? and who do YOU think you are?

    How can anyone still have the energy to dish out comments on anything this week? Are u kidding me? So y’all want to tell me u have all recovered from taofik okoya’s man-cleavage-lycra-wrap top shocker? Or u havent seen the post on the mania mag launch? I am still dazed, i dont know how u can still have any strength left after the horror of all horrors! Look, nothing on BN this year can beat taofik’s……………….i dont know wat to call it. WHaaaat!
