NEL Awards- Nigerian Entertainment and Lifestyle awards

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Nigerian Entertainment and Lifestyle awards held in South Kensington at the NH hotels, taking place over the weekend. And I must say it was a fabulous event. NEL ( Nigerian entertainment and lifestyle) is an industry awards event held to recognize and celebrate the achievements of Nigerians in the Entertainment and lifestyle sectors.

The likes of  Ms Julie Coker the former Beauty Queen, winning Miss Western Nigeria back in day and also among one of the first and most famous female Broadcasters in Nigeria, was present at the event!
She remains a role model for young woman broadcasters, due to her roles at WNBC (Western Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation) and her massive contribution to NTA!
 (Our aunties told us that when they were younger in Uni back in Nigeria they use to rush home just so they could catch her on the evening news) lool so there's some history for you!

 ALSO the amazing Adebayo Jones, muilt-award winning couture designer was in the building and I was so fortunate enough to steal him away and chat to him! I have to say he is such an amazing, gifted and inspirational man whom was so warm and very open! 
A Nigerian, whom is a London based designer known in the industry as THE KING OF COUTURE, is titled for creating the most lavish and luxurious collection of gowns of which he show cased at Africa Fashion Week London and received an outstanding reception.......
I could go on and on about him as I'm a big fan of his work and his designs so meeting him was just.... Amazing
