The Encomium White Gig is finally here, and celebs from all walks of life are gearing up to be part of the one-of-its-kind annual event holding this Sunday.
Billed to be an evening of Cognac cocktails, beautiful ballads and unbelievable fun, the event aims to bring together the bright, the bold and the brave in an evening filled with enough fun to go round.
“We’ve invited everyone that matters and we are looking forward to hosting the brightest and boldest minds from all over the country” Kunle Bakare publisher of Encomium says.
Bakare tells us that guests will include distinguished musicians, actors, socialites, entrepreneurs, business leaders, Government, media titans, and ardent Encomium readers.
Tagged “Take the steps, Walk the Talk”, the high octane gig will hold at The Haven GRA, Ikeja on March 18, 2012.
“Many pillars and supporters are with us in this merriment, and we are more than ecstatic that our path is being smoothened in no small measures”
Regular guests of the gig include Funke Akindele, Bisi Olatilo, Jimmy JATT, Weird MC, Genevieve Nnaji, Omowunmi Akinnifesi, Julius Agwu, T.W.O, Princess, Sunny Neji, Dayo Adeneye and Keke Ogungbe. And we are told that a couple of them have already been confirmed for the annual event.
The 6-hour event will kick off with an elaborate red carpet reception. The iconic DJ Jimmy JATT will guide guests through soft, smooth and at times wild music; and guests will have an opportunity to dance and prance from 4PM to 10PM.
In its fifth year, the White Gig started when Encomium marked her 10th Anniversary in 2007.
This year’s event is supported by LR Cognac, Kiss Events, JATT INC, Couture Cakes, BlackHouse Media, and Replica Digital. It will take place at The Haven from 4PM to 10PM on Sunday March 18, 2012.
Founded in May 1997, Encomium Weekly has gradually but steadily risen to become the celebrity journal to beat and copy. The magazine captures the triumphs and travails of celebrities, from all walks of life – from music to movies, politics to big business, and those who dominate the social circuit. It has developed from being a purely black and white magazine with only color covers to one parading many pages of color and the most respected magazine in its category.
