Furthermore, Denrele Edun and Eku Edewor will host the red carpet.
Speaking on the show, Managing Partner/CEO of Brownhill Events Centre, Mrs Julie Pinnick said, ‘Warri Again’ is a show aimed at rebranding Warri and making it a destination for entertainment.
We can use entertainment to drive social and commerical activities in Warri. Before we started the show, people used to look at Warri from a negative perspective. I am happy that people are beginning to acquaint themselves with what Warri really stands for; peace, hospitality and warmth. The forthcoming show, I can tell you will be the biggest show ever to be organised in Africa. The vision is to keep using entertainment to drive the economy of Warri, she added.
The maiden show was held in October, last year.
