BOLA AWOSIKA is one of the lead­ing event plan­ners in town. She is the brain be­hind B’event, an out­fit that has han­dled a lot of high pro­file events within and out­side La­gos. She is also well known with her La­viva hair range, which has be­come one of the most-sought-af­ter hair­pieces in the coun­try. She is a goal-driven per­son and achiever. The lat­est ef­fort com­ing from the sta­ble of Awosika, is that she has de­cided to set up ‘Event-in­dus­try­ing’, a plat­form set up to pro­mote, train, ed­u­cate and bring all event ven­dors in Nige­ria to­gether un­der one um­brella. It is also or­ga­niz­ing train­ing and em­pow­er­ment pro­grams in col­lab­o­ra­tion with gov­ern­ment and pri­vate or­gan­i­sa­tions to ben­e­fit as a group in dif­fer­ent pack­ages be­ing of­fered for SMES in Nige­ria. The event, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment made avail­able to us, would be an an­nual fair and ex­hi­bi­tion to pro­mote the Events in­dus­try. The first Fair on Oc­to­ber 2, 2017 would be tak­ing place at B’event Cen­ter on Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja. Awosika, a grad­u­ate of the Univer­sity of La­gos, has done well for her­self over the years. While in Abuja, she started her event com­pany B’event Lo­gis­tics Syn­ergy and han­dled a lot of events for gov­ern­ment and pri­vate in­di­vid­u­als. She also set up an­other com­pany La­viva Global Ven­ture, a hair shop and bou­tique that she op­er­ated suc­cess­fully. In 2007 she re­lo­cated to La­gos and be­gan her event busi­ness.
