The Andrei Esin led Fashion company gave a wonderful runway session.

Bola who was slated to perform the song of the moment in Nigeria “Assurance” by Davido surprised the audience when he started his performance with the liturgical “Blessed Assurance, Jesus is Mine” with an “Arriarria” tune. Though he latter preformed the most anticipated “Assurance”, thereafter, the DJ gave some danceable tunes that got everyone dancing
