Top Socialite, society photographer, highly loved, highly respected and all round nice guy Bayo Oyekan is among 56 Nigerians to be honoured at a top notch event in London this weekend.
The Uncelebrated Nigerians Awards (UNA) are to recognise and honour those quiet achievers and unrecognised hard working Nigerians dotted all over the UK.
According to the convener in chief of the UNA Mr Ayo Akinfe, the event is to highlight the fact that there are thousands of Nigerians working in various sectors of the British economy as well as in several private endeavours impacting the lives of others and making a difference to the community and society but these folks have never been recognised or celebrated for their achievements.
The event which holds at the swanky Mayfair Banqueting Centre in Chadwell Heath Romford, has been scheduled to form part of the events and celebrations in the capital commemorating Nigeria’s 56 Independence Anniversary.
The black tie even is expected to be graced by many eminent Nigerians in the UK including the Acting High Commission Mr Simon Ogah, Diplomats, UK Mayors and Councillors. Also expected are top celebrities from UK Nollywood, Media, Events, Entertainment and Business industries.
The event will be hosted by one of UK-Nigeria’s top MCs Posh MC aka Victor Oluwole and NollywoodUK Queen Theodora Ibekwe-Oyebade.
There will be performances by top UK Nigerian Afrobeats act Deoba Authentic, saxophonist Kakaki and veteran soul star Carol Jiani.
