By R&B PR ace

The much talked about Dubai Tourism Grand Premiere of ‘The Wedding Party’, held on the 26th of November 2016 at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. The highly anticipated and most sought-after invitation of 2016 had a ‘White and Chic’ dress code which saw cast and guests alike step out elegantly to the flashes and clicks of cameras.

The sold-out evening left guests reeling with excitement starting in the Bridal Court where guests were welcomed with signature Baileys cocktails whilst posing for pictures. The train then moved to the Gourmet Board where a 3- course dinner was served. Hosted by Bovi and Mimi Onalaja, the dinner had lots in store for the VIP guests including live performances by Seyi Shay, Isaac Gerald, Ruby Gyang and Timi Dakolo and raffle draws anchored by Headline Sponsor, Dubai Tourism. Some of the night’s standout prizes include luxury accommodation courtesy Arabian Falcon, theme park passes courtesy IMG Worlds of Adventure; helicopter rides courtesy Alpha Tours Helicopter Rides and other VVIP gifts.

After dinner, guests were moved into a custom built theatre for the movie screening. The full capacity audience laughed from start to end. After screening, Director Kemi Adetiba introduced her cast and crew led by Executive Producers, Mo Abudu (EbonyLife TV); Kene Mkparu (FilmOne); Naz Onuzo (InkBlot) and Laura Jeyibo (Koga Studios). The screening also broke the record for the largest mannequin challenge in Nigeria with an entire theatre posing in tribute to the social media phenomenon.

The highlight of the evening was the Premiere After-Party held in The Honeymoon Bay with DJ Obi on the decks. Guests savoured delicious treats by Hans N Rene and themed cocktails from the Baileys, Ciroc and Johnnie Walker. It was a befitting climax to what had been an awe-inspiring evening.
