It was a time for fun, inspiration and dance, on Sunday 29TH October when Event Industry Nigeria (EIN) in collaboration with Event Market Nigeria (EMN) visited Pacelli School for the blind.
Various events vendors came together under the umbrella of EventIndustryNg-Official and EMN for this charity event tagged “ #EMN-DifferentlyAbled /Meet and Greet”.
The essence of this visit was to fill the air with a true spirit of empowerment and fun that will enable the blind children feel better with themselves and grow up into self-actualized citizens knowing that people still care.
The event started about 12 noon with Abednego Norris ( First Blind African Rapper and Multitalented Artist ) anchoring the events in collaboration with members of EventMarketNigeria. Abednego proved without doubt that sight impediment does not in any way affect humor and wits.
Miss Ejiro Sharon Okotie and Kelly Blind of Wazobia FM were full of nuggets and jokes to inspire the children to greatness while sharing their life experiences.
Sharon who is an Ex-Pacellian explained how she chases her dreams and explained how she strives to achieve all her goals and really looking forward to becoming the first blind Ambassador to the United Nations.
“Son of Man” an upcoming comedian, ex student of the school, currently studying at Kings college Lagos , also took the stage, with other students showcasing their talents in comedy, dance and even playing the talking drum.
Funmi Ilori an educational psychologist and social entrepreneur, founder of iRead Network Africa also gave a lovely speech.
There was also a lot of interactive segments on the Red carpet hosted by Queen Labby ( *Miss Nigeria Republic ) and Tobi Neri ( Tiwantiwa Tv Presenter ) Some of the Events vendors on the Red Carpet included Abinibi Event Cottage , 123_events, and Cache Events, Dandies Events and many more.
Speaking on the red carpet,
Mr. Temmie Amodu , the convener of Event Market Nigeria (EMN) believes that within the next 3 years Event Industry Nigeria (EIN) will be recognized internationally with the first of its kind AFRICAN CONVENTION and that being a member of the Event Industry Nigeria will be the greatest thing any event vendor in Nigeria can be a part of based on qualities like integrity, tolerant governance, Standardization, Education and progressive projects to deepen the Event Practice in Nigeria and Africa.
