Award-winning MC and former Silverbirds Production executive Doyin Ola will be organising a classy gala dinner in the UK on Friday, June 7 at the Marriot Hotel in Bexleyheath.
Themed ‘Unveiling the Face Behind the Mask’, the event which starts at 5 pm and ends at 1 am, will feature a Champagne cocktail reception and a sumptuous dinner. It will also include comedy, an American auction, a raffle draw, live entertainment, a question and answer session and presentations on the subject of depression.
Standard tickets for the event that will be anchored by disc jockey DJ Jaiddo, are selling for £50, while VIP ones are going for £100. According to Ms Ola, it will be a spectacular gathering of community leaders, events and entertainment professionals and business moguls, with the aim of getting the Nigerian diaspora in the UK to speak with one voice.
Ms Ola said: “I have decided to call it Doyen’s Industry Night because it will pull together all the doyens of the Nigerian community in the UK. We will have fun and enjoy ourselves but will also brainstorm, addressing some of the serious issues that affect us, including the vexed issue of depression, which has been ignored up until now.”
She added that tickets can be obtained by ringing either 07449 844081, 07538 622 122 or 07943 823 292.
Ms Ola, a veteran of many such events including the Nigerian Direct Diaspora Investment Summit, Uncelebrated Nigerians Awards UK and the Silverbirds Production Nigerian beauty pageant, added that she is expecting a full house on the night.
Tickets are also available via Eventbrite and those wishing to make purchases
