A sneak peak video showing the 2nd Annual Host Ramsey Nouah, arriving in grand style via a private helicopter.
The 2nd annual GIAMA started off in spectacular fashion; with superstar host Ramsey Nouah arriving in grand style in a private helicopter and being escorted to the Stafford Centre in a Mercedes-Benz S-class. Although the helicopter was originally scheduled to land on the red carpet, however, due to safety and permit issues in the last hour, we had to land it across the street from the venue, and had to shuttle him from there.
Fans cheered on his arrival and were even more elated when he hit the stage with James Bond themed opening number. The star-studded event featured several highlights including rib-crabbing jokes from comedians AY, Seyi Brown and Jedi who kept the crowd continuously entertained. Other side attractions of the day were Dance performances to PSquare’s Personally, Alingo, just mention a few and special music performance by the Refugees …. The highlight moments of the day also included the honorary award presentation for Lancelot Imaseun and Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD).
