All roads led to Sunfit on Saturday 1st of July as KMA hosted its 4th Anniversary/Awards night. It was a full house with dignitaries, award recipients, families, friends, stakeholders and well-wishers graced the event with their presence.
The jaw-dropping event kicked off with opening prayers by A/P Abajue and was immediately followed by national anthem and KMA anthem led by Chibuikem Nzeribe [C.wonder].
Shortly after the introductory slide and welcome speech from founders Ngee & Rich [Dr & Mrs Richard Okonkwo], a short drama titled Price of Comprise was presented by 3LF drama group in collaboration with KMA’s Alive Troupe. The message emphasizing on how keeping silent or giving shallow voice/opinion/communication can be a danger to individual, family unit and the society at large.
The Ice Breaker came as Ngee gave her speech tagged “The Piece”. She spoke passionately about the worth of our views, voice and duty to our nation Nigeria. Sighting 2 stories on how disunity could cause division and on the other hand how unity brings about achievement of a vision; she left the audience with the message of learning not to be too focused on the piece of the national cake at the detriment/danger of destroying the cake itself which is our country Nigeria.
E.Davis – a veteran gospel musician lifted up the spirit, mood, and atmosphere with 3 outstanding performance backed up by one of the guests Luchi [Mrs Oluchi Okonkwo].
