The wedlock between O’jez Entertainment and Evergreen Musical Company has given birth to a reinvigorated Elders’ Forum, the once very popular monthly highlife music show that was also used as a medium to recognize and honour individuals who have distinguished themselves in the arts and music industry.
So come this Sunday, February 26, all roads will lead to celebrity restaurant, O’jez, inside the National Stadium, Surulere-Lagos where the revived Elders’ Forum will open in a grand style with the presence of Liberian International singer, Miatta Fahnbulleh alongside Nigeria’s acclaimed folklorist, playwright and actor Jimi Solanke.
Time is 5pm.
The Elders’ Forum according to Chief Joseph Odobeatu, Chief Executive Officer of O’jez Entertainment Group, was rested for about three years to enable it come back in a different shape and style. “We had to go back to the drawing board and work out a way to make the every last Sunday of the month event that rocked Lagos for almost 15 years look fresher and better. So, O’jez went into a partnership with Evergreen Musical Company to make this happen. What you will witness on Sunday is a sharp departure from the past editions because we will strive to reinvent ourselves,” Odobeatu said.
Meanwhile, Miatta Fanhbulleh has been reharsing with Jimi Solanke as both of them will be on stage for the better part of Sunday event.
