June 2nd will forever be remembered in the entertainment scene of Akwa Ibom as two historic concerts will be staged in honor of two entertainment impresarios. One is Gift & Grace with Asteroid at Monty Suites, and the climax will be ‘Yak Isagha’ (meaning Let’s Laugh) with Sir James at Cephas’ Place.
The two Entertainment entrepreneurs and showbiz personalities- Ekemini ‘Asteroid’ Bassey and Sir James Essien are amongst the most revered in this part of the clime, both of them have spent an average of a decade doing what they love and know how to do best, which in both cases happens to be very far from what they studied in the university.
Asteroid is very passionate about showbiz, and his versatility makes him relevant in all sectors of the industry, in December 2011, he led the Board of Directors of E-101 Magazine to discuss entertainment with the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom state, His Excellency Chief Godswill Akpabio CON, where he presented to the Governor the award of the ENTERTAINMENT MAN OF THE YEAR.
Asteroid is an MC extraordinaire, he is known for planning & anchoring top notch events in Akwa Ibom state, from Album launching, to Wedding Receptions and Brand Promotion campaigns.
Asides comedy, Sir James presented Youth Corner on A.K.B.C; he is the Entertainment Editor of Sensor Newspaper and is running Comedy Cross Road on Atlantic FM.
These two events are not to be missed for any reason, as they both line up the best entertainers to thrill their friends and fans, so mark your calendars and get ready to share in God’s Gift & Grace in their Lives and join them to laugh afterwards.
