Ulla Wieghann with Kenny Ogungbe

Business woman and socialite Aisha Guobadia spent her New Year holiday in Benin City. “I came here to celebrate with my mom and dad. I must confess that I rocked Benin at least to a good extent. I had missed the place for a while, so it was the best place to be at that time of the year.”

Aisha Guobadia

Aisha Guobadia added her plans for the year, “that will be to focus more on my business and reach out to the less privileged in our society today. That has been my concern for some time now.”

It was a great year for top Nigerian  hip hop singer Innocent Idibia, popularly known as 2baba. Last year his movie 'The Power of 1' written by music promoter and board member of COSON, Efe Omoregbe, hit the cinema after he returned with his team from AFRIMA 2018 in Ghana.


2baba and Buckwyde Media CEO, Efe Omoregbe were at different cinemas, hosting celebraties to 'the Power of 1' movie. "My family and I have been having a great time moving from one cinema to another," said a cheerful 2baba.

Tee Mac

On his part, Musician and Concert Flutist, Dr. Tee Mac Omatshola Iseli (MFR) had an Xmas-New year holiday like no other. Said he,”I spent my Christmas season quietly at home in Lagos with my family. I however visited my sister Justice Okwuobi and her sons and grand children. I then attended a PMAN show at Alpha beach, and now I am ready for a busy and exiting 2019. I also feel presently blessed after receiving a brand new flute early this year after one got missing towards the end of last year. You know how passionate I am with my flutes.”

Yeni Kuti

Fela Anikulapo’s daughter Yeni Kuti spent all the holidays with family and friends. Yeni Kuti was one of the celebrities that stormed the Lagos beach during the festive season. “I went to the beach, went eating out in a restaurant too. My daughter, husband and grandson were in town. So we had a great time together.”

After a successful tour of Jamaica late last year, ARA the enigmatic drummer is back in the country. Looking radiant after the New Year holiday, the pioneer lady drummer says she is looking positively into the new year as it unfolds.

ARA went ahead and regaled us with lots of stories about her fun moments in Jamaica. She summed it by adding that, "Jamaica was great!" But for ARA, the celebration continues because January is her birth month. So in few days it will be her birthday and she plans “a mini get together with my band and close associates. We will praise and celebration to give thanks to God for His mercy, grace, love and protection.”

German Music Promoter Ulla Wieghann definitely doesn’t celebrate Xmas but in the spirit of the season, Ulla knows that particular time of the year is worth enjoying. Ulla Wieghann who is a friend of Nigerian music promoter Kenny Ogungbe, took time off during the holiday to be with friends.

She said that she ensured she took time out dancing with friends all night. She was also out all night on the last day of the year, with friends. “I usually go out the last evening in the year for dancing with friends, and it used to go on all night. I hope 2019 will be a better year than 2018, especially for my musician friends. My plan for this New Year, is to find many gigs and shows for musicians working with me abroad. I want to take the beautiful African music to the world. This would make me very happy; it's all I need in 2019.
