Various other Birthdays

I have also assisted other individuals in planning and executing their birthdays, weddings and other events generallly.

Peace Concert

I was in the team that planned and executed this concert in aid of Cervical cancer to reach out to 10,000 women in the urban and rural areas.
It was held at Eko hotel where we had over 2000 people in attendance. It was a musical concert and it was a huge success. The decoration and ushers were provided by me. So far over 6000 women have been screened free of charge.

WOW Divas Zumbathon

This was an event organised in aid and creating awareness of breast cancer. held at The Lagoon Restaurant. It was a zumbathon where guest were invited to come shake off some calories while also assisting in raising funds for printing of awareness brochure on breast cancer.
I had an interview on television, talking about breast cancer and the need for women to do a check up annually especially when they are over 40, as this will help in early detection of the disease. Early detection brings about saving a life as it can be treated at the early stage.
We also had specialist nutritionist talking about healthy ways of eating. It was a huge success too.


A surprise birthday party been organised. Sourced for the venue and vendors and practically single handedly put the event together. Organised for a documentary on the life of the celebrant. Interviewed friends and members of family to make up a 20 minute documentary that was played at the event. Put together all the vendors and service providers.
There was a red carpet interview, where friends and family members were asked to say something about the celebrant. Sourced for the gifts/souvenirs given to guests. The party was a huge success with all parties satisfied with the event
