The book reviewer was none other than the Capo di tutti capi of celebrity journalism himself, Otunba Olakunle Bakare, the CEO/Editor-in-Chief at Encomium Magazine. He gave a fantastic review, pointing out the positives and the shortfalls in the package. All in all, he commended the writer for having the heart to take the risk to put together a great book. The event MC was the incredibly talented & hilarious Julius Agwu and he did a great job.
Akogun Olanrewaju Alfred, the author; who is also the Group Society Editor at This Day Newspapers was the cynosure of all eyes on the D-day wearing for the first time in a long-while a dark coloured tuxedo, looking very dapper, he was accompanied to the event by his gorgeous wife, the very sweet-mannered Omolara Alfred. The very well packaged & gloriously colourful book was snapped up by all who came to the launch.
