COMEDY merchant, Opa Williams, is set to hold his rebranded annual ball, tagged The Evening. Scheduled to hold on November 25 at the Muson Centre, Lagos, this year’s edition is organised with the Nigerian Society for the Blind.
The comedy merchant/ film producer said the event will turn out to be the ‘biggest and most unique’ charity ball in 2012 as three tables in the high profile ball have been reserved for members of Nigerian Society for the Blind with over 30 per cent of proceeds being set aside for the procurement of Braille machines, as well as other visual support materials for the visually impaired.
Why is The Evening unique? Opa, who introduced the comedy show, Nite of a Thousand Laughs, 16 years ago said: “The Evening is not a concert; it is more than a concert. The Evening is a different platform. It is not a commercial venture but a charity ball in support of the visually impaired brothers and sisters, and that is why we are collaborating with the association.
“It brings us to the question: which Christmas gift do you look forward to getting from anybody? A goody bag? Hampers? Bags of rice? A holiday at Obudu Cattle Ranch? It is making someone forget his sorrow and smiling.”
Parts of the highlights of the evening will be an entertainment session with Afro hip hop artiste, Tuface performing all his songs backed by the 50-man Marina Choir Orchestra.
Also, billed to perform is Iroko, a classical African dance beat, which is a rare refreshing and delightful display of African drums and sounds. Others are the multi-talented singer and producer, Cobhams Asuquo and gospel crooner, Buchi.
