As one of activities marking the 70th birthday celebration of the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Michael Adedotun Gbadebo, CFR, leading celebrity hangout, Niteshift Coliseum, will be hosting the respected monarch to a Grand House Reception.
The event, elevated to a 7-star, will hold on 7 September at the club arena in Opebi, Lagos.
Ken-Calebs Olumese, Guv’nor of Niteshift Coliseum, said after a long absence of GHR, the club considers it an honour having such prominent personality as Alake as guest on its return.
Olumese promised that the coming GHR will be a high profile celebration of the Alake.
“With citation, presentation of plaque, an interactive session laced with comedy and music by leading performers, the evening promises to be exciting and rewarding,” he said.
Olumese, who has since retired from night clubbing business, also assured that the GHR for the Alake will parade glamour and glitz in huge doses as it’s the custom of the Coliseum.
GHR is Coliseum’s flagship event and notable Nigerians and foreigners have been honoured during the events. They include: President Goodluck Jonathan; former Vice President Atiku Abubakar; Former Ghanaian President J.J Rawlings; former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; former Finance Minister Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala; and Lagos State governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola.
Oba Gbadebo, the Okukenu IV, will be the first monarch to be honoured by the club’s prestigious GHR.
