The alumni party for the 2019 Best of Nollywood (BON) Awards has been scheduled for September 2019.
BON Awards is an annual film event presented by the BON Magazine to honour outstanding achievements and recognize deserving individuals in Nigeria’s movie industry.
The organizers said an alumni party, which is intended as a prequel to the main award event, would hold on Sunday, September 28, 2019, at Posh De Podium, Ikeja, Lagos.
The party comes as the second event in this year’s BON Awards retinue and promises to be grandiose as notable dignitaries have been billed to be in attendance.
It also would celebrate all the past winners of the awards and simultaneously unveil the nominees for the 2019 edition in a bid to create awareness and make the main award event more memorable than previous ones.
Among the special guests of honor for the party are Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, wife to the Lagos state governor; Tamunominini Makinde, wife of Oyo state governor; and Bukola Saraki, former senate president and governor of Kwara state.
Seun Oloketuyi, the principal organizer of the event, said special corners for interested distinguishing guests would be made available on request while the party would commence at exactly 5pm at the designated venue.
Meanwhile, a prequel to the alumni party is the BON Children’s Day Book Reading fiesta, an event which held at Infantino Montessori, Lekki.
As the date of the main award event draws nearer, the BON Magazine would also be marking its 10 years anniversary in a celebration that is poised to be more interesting and memorable than previous events hosted by the film magazine.
