A-list artistes Yemi Alade, Duncan Mighty and Wande Coal are among the collection of stars expected to thrill guests and attendees at Celebrating You 2018 – an annual year-end awards/dinner party organised by Technology Distributions Ltd. (TD), Sub-Saharan Africa’s foremost Information and Communication Technology (ICT) distributors.
Unarguably one of the most eagerly-awaited celebratory events in Corporate Nigeria, Celebrating You 2018 holds on Sunday, December 9th 2018 at the prestigious Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Yemi Alade has carved a niche for herself as one of the most energetic female entertainers in the Nigerian music scene. Her eye-catching, all-action style is expected to be one of the highlights of the event.
Duncan Mighty, the self-styled Port Harcourt first son, is no stranger in the industry, having amassed five studio albums with a string of very popular tunes among them. Despite a brief hiatus from the music scene, Wene Mighty, as he is fondly called, staged a remarkable comeback in 2018 which began with his hugely popular duet – Fake Love – with superstar act, Wizkid which relaunched him into the spotlight and paved the way for a seemingly unending stream of collaborations with a host of other big hitters.
For Wande Coal, what else is there to say but bring it on! The Black Diamond has stayed relevant since he announced his entrance with the Don Jazzy-owned Mo’ Hits Records in 2006. Apart from boasting a recognisable style and amazing footwork from his early days as a dancer, Wande Coal is widely regarded as one of the most brilliant vocalists in the Nigerian music scene today. The Mushin-born lyrical maestro is also an accomplished entertainer, whose performances have never failed to draw widespread applause and accolades.
In addition, cameo appearances are also expected from Falz, the multi-talented singer, songwriter, rapper and actor as well as Ranti Ihimoyan, a special breed classical singer whose sonorous voice is expected to light up the stage on the night. While Falz is expected to turn up at the After Party where another superstar, DJ Big N is expected to man the deck, Ranti – an opera and crossover singer with great versatility will perform at the main event.
Host and Compere for Celebrating You 2018 is Bovi, a talented comedian, actor and writer who is responsible for organizing popular stand-up comedy concerts like Bovi Man on Fire across the globe.
Also billed to perform on the night is Alternate Sounds, a musical band led by maverick music producer, GospelOnDeBeatz who put together the four-man band in May 2015.
Further raising the profile of this year’s edition of the event is the expected attendance of the Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo who will grace the occasion as the Special Guest of Honour.
In addition to a star-studded guest list including captains of industries, bank CEOs, dignitaries and other prominent representatives of the biggest brand names in Corporate Nigeria, Celebrating You 2018 will specially recognize and celebrate TD’s partner eco-system, namely a host of globally-renowned Original Equipment Manufacturers in the technology space and other channel partners.
