The much talked about exclusive boat cruise for top celebrities in Nigeria by Encomium magazine in partnership with the management of Nire Prest owned by Mr.Tony Prest took place on Saturday 12 July 2008. The take off a Chinese restaurant on Admiralty way in Lekki phase 1. Those who came earlier included the likes of ace broadcaster, Mrs. Teni Aofiyebi and her relation, Dr.(Mrs.) Doyin Abiola, one of the wives of the late billionaire, Bashorun MKO Abiola. Mr. Soni Irabor also turned up with his wife, Mrs. Betty Irabor publisher of Genevieve Magazine. Actresses who turned up included, Uche Iwuji, Uche Jombo, Rukki Sanda and Nike Peller.We also had top actor, Ayo Badmus,one of Nigeria male style icons and owner of Sophisticant,Mr.Lanre Ogunlesi,female rap musician, Sasha, Muma Gee, lively couple Tunde and Wunmi Obe,Sola Idowu popularly known as Weird MC also came on board, Kenny Saint Brown, Essence,ID Ogungbe,actor and producer of Irapada Film, Kunle Afolayan, Mr.Steve Ayorinde, editor of The Punch Newspapers,Kingsley James of Visa hangout in Ikeja , Bayo Odusami popularly known as Howie T of Kiss Event, Wole Aboderin and others were all on board.I must not forget to mention that journalists such as Lanre Alfred, Kayode Olanshile, Azuh Amatus of The Sun, Shina Oyetayo of Tell magazine, Folusho Arogundade of Insider magazine and others who also came to enjoy themselves.
One thing that you don’t miss at Encomium’s parties is the ‘jollification’. They ensure that there are more music than talk and people dances freely. It is what you can call more music, less talk. Honestly, I have attended some parties in the past that would be more like a symposium than a party. This is because some organizers would keep inviting people to talk.www.niyitabiti.blogspot.com promise to post more photos from the event later.

    Uche Jombo is looking swell…nice 1. Betty Irabo (i hope i got the spelling right) is ever looking and dressing ageless. The lady with some tatoo on her ankle area looks okay. Uche Iwuji has gained some serious weight, i guess it is evidence of good living. ENCOMIUM is on some serious level

    You did a great as usual Niyi. You all look like you had a fun time. Everyone looked fly, not too shaby at all. BTW Niyi, either you have something with Uche Iwuji or you have got a stalker on your hands my friend. I don’t remember the last time I saw her in a movie, but she seems to show up wherever you camera is flashing. And why is she so bloated?!

    Hello Niyi,
    I usually check out your blog for updates on Naija infotainment and I am sure entertained every time. I just want to make a suggestion to enhance your blog.It is as follows:
    Could you try to put the names of people close to their pictures especially when the redaer does not know them before e.g your latest posting has all the names in the upper part and the pictures in the lower part. One will have to scroll up, look at the name, scroll down to get the picture etc which is exhausting(lol) on a good blog like yours.
