A Night of Melodious Memories! Photos of Kate Henshaw, Joseph Benjamin, Fiona Amuzie, Segun Arinze, Bukky Wright at the “Memoirs & Wine…A Touch of Class” Event in Lagos



Prince Adeyanju Lipede (CEO, Solution Media)

The city of Lagos was the place to be on Friday 24th August 2012 as creative and hi-tech multimedia company – Solution Media and Infotech Limited, held an evening of fun and excitement with loads of music tagged Memoirs & Wine….A Touch of Class, at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The event which saw in attendance some of Nigeria’s favorite entertainers and socialites including Dayo Ephraim, Segun Arinze, Gloria Young, Joseph Benjamin, Bukky Wright, Fiona Aforma Amuzie, Tunji Shotimirin and Ireti Osayemi, was organized to cause a flashback on the favorite tunes of the 70s, 80s aand early 90s, that would bring all attendees a reminisce of those moments.

Days before the event, Solution Media and Infotech Limited, had engaged all hands involved in repeated rehearsals for them to deliver nothing short of the best. At exactly 5 PM, the show hosted by Nollywood star, Kate Henshaw, who looked stunning in a green Ankara dress paired with drop down earrings and diamond clutch as well as a dapper looking Basorge Tariah Jnr, kicked off with a red carpet session where attendees flaunted their most glamorous ensembles.

As attendees arrived, top Nigerian comedian Omo Baba ushered them in with some rib cracking jokes, shortly after, Sodapop Band from Phillipines and Flames Band from Kenya came on stage to thrill all.

Other performers of the night included Segun Arinze, Bukky Wright, Princess Teni Aofiyebi, Emem Isong, Tade Ogidan, Joseph Benjamin, Gloria Young, Charles Novia, Fiona Amuzie and Funmi Dele Giwa. They all got on the Nivoflex Glossy Stage with lots of light effects synonymous to that of the opening ceremony of the London Olympics, to give their own renditions of their favorite tunes.

Inside the Federal Place Hotel, as the selected 500 guests indulged themselves in some refreshing glasses of wine and finger foods, over 200 light effects were displayed on stage including Glec, LED Screen, animated backdrops, laser lights, parcan lights as well as LED Lights.

It was truly an evening to behold and has got all the exclusive photos.

    Gloria Anozie Young; madam you need to invest in good shoes. Ireti Osayemi looks very well put together. I don’t really like Kate Henshaw’s outfit but her body is tight mehn. Joseph Bejamin should buy good briefs so that he can pack/park his JT well. Looks like he was struggling with a stubborn hard-on. Many others look like disasters except few like Biola and that chic is beeded mini dress….oh! Now I get where Joseph Benjamins hard-on is coming from *mischievious smile*

    WOW, Kate Henshaw looks amazing…kip it up

    I’m confused. By the outfits some people squeezed into, by the selection of performers (Not that I was in attendance, so I could be wrong, but the pictures of those performing don’t quite do it.) They were supposed to be performing a selection of favs from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s right? Hmmmmm…wonder what was performed.

    Squeezing into tight clothing, Tucking a long top into your leggings (with very visible lines,) terrible weaves (na by force pesin must lace front?) And same ol’ typical naija concept: Cocktail dresses, to traditional, to denim n blazers, to floor length dinner or formal gowns, to office attire to night club baffs. You get it all on each red carpet. SMH.

      I’m highly offended by the attendees outfits. Just a bunch people with terrible outfits, shoes and hair.
      God forgive me but my mind went to something when I saw the shots of those Asian people.

    Was it that bad? the young ,an in the last picture looks down right miserable.
    I love naija women really do but they leave me speechless on most days.
    If you love mini dresses as you obviously do, why not spend some time on the tracks or in a gym better still exercise at home. This great display of thunder cobweby things in heart breaking. Follow Kate Henshaw’s example and hit the weights.

    So incensed was I with the dressing of that woman in the blue dress that I came straight to leave my comment after witnessing her monstrosity of a dressing.

    Nne, if your cellulite is all encompassing, a show and tell dress is not for you. Haba!!

    A lot of the women on the red carpet need a better bra and some spanx.
