The event held at Eve Restaurant in Victoria Island, Lagos. Perhaps what would pass as the most memorable moment from the night was a powerful speech by Orifa’s wife, Mary.

‘I may be apprehensive of speaking in public but I’m not apprehensive of the future. I believe in you.’ It was one of the many tributes that made the night wonderful.

Orifa is the founder/CEO of EMBLUE, a new media and marketing company focusing on connecting consumers and companies in Africa and helping companies outside of Africa to access the African market.

Prior to founding EMBLUE, Kelvin was consumer segments manager for MTN communications Nigeria limited. MTN Nigeria is the leading mobile operator in Nigeria with about 60 million customer base and part of MTN group, Africa’s leading mobile operator with operations in 22 countries.
