Update- Lagos To Host First Ever,International Drinks Festival…

17 Aug

This December promises to be more fun than ever before as Lagos is set to play host to the first ever International Drinks Festival. Brand owners, retailers, and holiday fun seekers will besiege Lagos in the single largest gathering of stakeholders in the drinks’ business ever witnessed in Nigeria.
During an exclusive press conference and elaborate unveiling ceremony held recently in Federal Palace Hotel and Casino, Victorial Island, Lagos, Balmoral, organizers of the event and one of Africa’s biggest event management companies revealed that the event, which will take place from the 1st-3rd December, 2017 at the Balmoral Convention Centre, Federal Palace Hotel, V.I, is going to be an Exhibition of various drinks brands, masterclasses with various drink professionals, various summits which will give the attendees opportunities to ask questions and interact with the drink experts.
The festival will also have a lot of interactive fun events to lighten up the atmosphere and introduce various brands to the general public.
The unveiling ceremony, if anything to go by, was an indication of the glamour and finesse that would encapsulate the major event coming up in December.
The unveiling brought together members of the press from virtually all the major media outlets, as well as the crème de la crème of the music, movie, and beverage industry and even, the political class.
At the event, guests were treated to a cocktail session on an exquisite artistic floor plan featuring a spirit bar, palm wine joint, and a local beer parlor complete with ladies on stilts, and some standing inside waist-high glass chandeliers. It was a sight to behold! Coming on the heels of an Euro monitor International (a world renowned business intelligence company) reports that Nigeria consumed 36.68 million liters of soft drinks in 2016, its spirits market worth $6 billion, and beer accounting for 55% of the total market share, with what was displayed last week, Balmoral’s First-Ever International Drinks Festival will no doubt take Christmas to a whole new level in Lagos, come December 2017.

UPDATE- Woman Dies, Immediately She Arrives Uyo From Lagos…

28 Apr

A woman simply identified as Felicia died immediately she got to Uyo From Lagos.

Apparently, it was revealed that her husband took her to Lagos park alive to board a vehicle going to Uyo.. and then made arrangements with a pastor to pick her up for prayers… But on getting to Uyo park she gave up the ghost.. and the pastor she was meant to meet with ran away.

Felicia was very sick..
Read the story as shared by AB Isong:

DEAD ON ARRIVAL:
Somehow i wanted to overlook this story, but it boils down to marrying a wrong man hence this post.
Earlier today (thursday 6.pm precisely), I went to Itam Park long distance bus terminus where i was expecting a parcel from Lagos.

On arrival I saw an unusual crowd and I decided to get close. Only to find this woman dead and laid beside the young shall grow bus which transported her to Uyo.
I was privileged to ask a co-passenger who boarded same vehicle with her from Lagos to Uyo.
She said the woman’s husband brought her to the park alive to board the vehicle. And that He knew the woman wasn’t very strong while embarking on the long journey. And had made arrangement with a pastor here in Uyo to pick her and commence prayers.
The woman arrived Uyo alive, stepped out of the vehicle, asked for her luggage to be given to her which the driver obliged. Seeing she was weak, they offered her a chair to sit while waiting for pick-up.. the next thing she fell off the chair and that was the end of her life here on earth.

Minutes later, The Pastor came but was told from a distance that the lady he just spoke with on phone is dead. The man took off and disappeared.

Everyone deserted her but the good Samaritan in me came alive and I decided not to leave her there just like others did. I had to put a call across to the Nigerian Police and they responded swiftly. they came to the scene but my joy was complete when a woman came around and identified the lady as Felicia.. she wept and said Edoh Eke Wod meaning (they married her to kill her)… she has been taken to the mortuary by the Nigerian Police.

But my trouble is, Why will a man allow his wife travel such a long distance alone knowing too well she was sick?

Did he ever love that woman?

Did he know the woman won’t survive and decided to send her back to her state for death?

Why didn’t he take her to the hospital for treatment?

Oh Lord! help us… My wife is still weeping.

I’m happy i did my best.Woman I don’t know you, But may God bless your soul, Rest In Peace.

Don’t just write R.I.P, the reason i wrote this is for us to learn from it.

Never stay with a man who has no regards for you. if you die he will marry another. Marriage is not by force. You can still make heaven without marriage ooh! Marriage is not a yardstick to measure success.

 I speak in anger! if staying single will keep you alive, please stay single and live than to marry and die.
