Fully charged cranes, metal strips being knocked against each other, drapes flowing down from the ceiling, lights, speakers, stanchions, moin-moin leaves in vases, multi-toned lounge seats, and the fusion of African print patterns transformed The Landmark Centre on December 16th as The Unofficial Christmas Party hosted business magnates, corporate executives and their teams, media influencers and industry professionals to an amazing night of celebration of exceptional employees and a unique Christmas experience like never before.
In line with the theme of the third edition of TUCP, everyone stepped up their aso-ebi game with modern and fashionable Ankara outfits sewn with the complimentary Ankara fabric that accompanied the delicately handcrafted Ankara-themed invitation box and acrylic access cards.
Guests marveled at the beauty of Yoruba culture as the hostesses led them through the history tunnel decorated with vintage Owambe pictures which made a unique red carpet experience. As they sipped on cocktails and champagne, people mingled, old friends reconnected, and recounted the year’s happenings. A big hit at the pre-dinner reception was the exciting Owambe mirror booth, for photos and videos.
At 8pm, dinner was served in a relaxed, beautifully decorated and illuminated ambience, guests were treated to finger-licking local delicacies.
Up next was the most anticipated competition for the evening, the Lip sync battle; teams were still practicing their routines at the event and they put on a great performance – one team were so good, they got Tiwa Savage on stage to spice up their performance!
The after party was a party like no other. Adekunle Gold got the party started and no one was prepared for Sir Shina Peters performance, he took the guests back to the 80s, 90s and right back to 2016. The dancing didn’t stop as the remarkable DJ Obi took over delivering non-stop amazing Owambe music till 3am.
The Unofficial Christmas Party 2016 was an incredible experience, and an Owambe party like no other!
