Efe Omorogbe Hosts Celeb Friends at Connoisseur Cruise: Independence Special.
Respected creative resource, entrepreneur and talent manager, Efe Omorogbe hosted a select group of friends and colleagues on the independence edition of the exquisite music listening experience tagged Connoisseur Cruise on Sunday, October 4, 2020, at Pop Hub, Lagos.
Padita Agu, Yibo Koko, Sunny Neji, Timi Dakolo, Helen Abutu, Tony Green, Toyin Roy, Toun Banjo and Andre Blaze were among close friends in attendance at the second edition of the event put together primarily to create a platform for busy creatives and executives to relax and indulge their passion for beautiful music.
The Independence Special featured a multi-genre/generational cruise through some of the most beautiful music from Nigeria over the last 60 years laced with insightful convo and witty banter. The event was broadcast live on Pop Central TV and IG Live.
The first edition hosted at CCX, Lagos had Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Lucy Edet, Buki Hq, Okechukwu Izeogu, Loose Kaynon, Nwanne Okafor, Ikhane Akhigbe, Paul Okeugo, Toyin Roy and Victoria Nkong among others in attendance.
“I’ve been talking about doing this for a while”, quips Omorogbe. Particularly with my friend, Buki Hq since when she was at Classic FM. The music gets to become too much work at some point and Connoisseur Cruise is a deliberate attempt to flip that script, open up time and simply immerse ourselves in the magic of mind-blowing music.”
Efe elaborates further, “It’s a convergence of music minds basically. The playlist is curated by the host/co-host and the guest list is made of people who are known to have an intense love for the music (genre, sub-genre, era or artiste). People who have no qualms about expressing it. It’s so far been utterly fun and relaxing.”
Besides his impressive work as a writer, talent manager and music executive, Efe Omorogbe has over the years, executive-produced event properties like Star Music: The Trek, Jos Chillin’ Mega Fiesta, Eargasm, 2face: Fortyfied, Str8-Up Hip-hop, Campus Connect, Rhythm Riot Tour and Buckwyld ‘n’ Breathless; the game-changing concert brand marking 10 years this October via a television special scheduled to run on Pop Central, Nigezie and HipTv.
