Love Idoko led Dream Pointers Ltd; the organizer of the show also gave room for budding stars as upcoming musician Mima took the stage next and sang to the delight of the audience.

After Mima, came the turn of the “Nollywooders”- Uche Jumbo, and Monalisa Chinda. They interacted and got along so well with the audience that the barrier that comes in between celebrities and their fans seemed to be nonexistent that night. In fact, A' list actress, Uche Jombo took it a notch higher when she danced to the delight of the crowd who wanted more than a piece of her.
Desmond Elliot, the MC of the night came up after the actresses to introduce J-Martins, the next artist for night and it was a great applause that heralded the entrance of the Oyoyo crooner on stage and he did not disappoint his fans as he performed most of his songs which the audience sang and danced to.
Just after J-Martins was Mo'hits star, Wande Coal, the mention of his name got the crowd wild with ecstasy. He performed some of his hits songs and got the crowd begging for more.
Following the success of the event, Dream Pointer has continued to prove itself as a major force to reckon with in event planning.
