The private banquet which held on Thursday, July 14th at theMarcopolo Restaurant, Lekki had in attendance notable award-winning personalities and celebrities such as Big Brother Naija star couple – Teddy A and BamBam; award-winning actor Daniel Etim Effiong, industry veteran, Ifeanyi kalu and his wife Nicole; Nigeria’s queen of the screen, Joke Silva; multitalented actors Shawn Faqua; MC, voiceover artiste and thespian, Seun Ajayi; famed songstresses Omawunmi and Waje and several others.
Guests were treated to a potpourri of insightful conversations, deep dives into the divine, humour and fine dining in a warm yet spiritually charged ambience.
Speaking at the banquet, Founder of Restoring Issachar’s Generation (RIG) and one of the patrons of the initiative, Prophet Tomi Arayomi, charged guests to seek and run with the vision of God for their lives and to be aware of the level of influence they hold. In a lighthearted yet spiritually intense admonition, the prophet highlighted the importance of the industry in establishing God’s purpose on earth.
He likened God to a master editor and producer who knowing all things from beginning to end, has purposed that every individual accomplishes divine vision in each’s given area of assignment.
He emphasised the need for entertainers to embrace a visionary mindset; one capable of not just churning out content but lasting legacies that would transform lives positively, build the nation’s fortunes and provide a treasured learning foundation for coming generations.
Prophet Arayomi advocated excellence and responsibility-driven creativity for entertainers in expressing their craft bearing in mind that they are creators who play a vital role in influencing societal lifestyles. He went on to announce the establishment ofan industry-led community fund in support of the creation of wholesome content with the sum of $10,000.00 (Ten Thousand US Dollars).
In a similar vein, convener of the dinner, CEO of That Good Media, Toyosi Etim-Effiong noted that the event, geared towards fostering collaborations and community among industry players, proved that there is strength in numbers and as a collective, ‘those of us in the industry can feel a sense of support for our projects and consciously build lasting legacies to reinforce our position as Africa’s leading entertainment industry and provide a blueprint for the generations to come’.
The Media and Entertainment meetup will continue to expand its network and build a community of professionals driven by their desire for wholesome narratives.
