We all can never forget the year 2020. It was a year that got us all locked up and scared. As many people cancelled their party dates, they focused more on staying alive and safe from the deadly Covid-19 virus. During this period, many businesses shut down, while others began to rise. As we all can relate, Lagos is popular for its wild party cruise, once the doors to social events were open, event centres were all booked with a long queue. Hosts began to reach out to their vendors who may have shut down or been struggling to get back on. Hosts were opened to new vendors to handle their parties. So during the course of the year! City People TV participated in many parties where many hardworking vendors were met. These vendors are not just new in the business of servicing people but are also outstanding in their performances.
They work with so much professionalism and also add some spark to parties. As the year comes to an end, City People TV brings to you fast raising vendors taking over Lagos parties.
THE EVENT PLANNERS & DECORATORS
A party without proper planning can turn out to be a complete disaster. No matter the size of the event, hosts now employ the services of event planners to ensure that their party is a success. These fast-rising party planners don’t just stop at organising other vendors and giving orders. They get the halls ready for the event. During the course of the year, City People TV has worked with the following event planners and decorators; Honeycedar, Elizabeth Walker, The Events Lab Nigeria, Light & Event Decorentals, Bibby Events, Bellola Events, Events By Shade Sho, B-Signature Event, Event By Global Tasty Treat Cake, KYBN Events, Executive Coordinators By Madam Anne, Daddy Pems, Jade Options, Rav Ups Event, Event By Omousi, Pklamour, Seamless Events, and Memorable Event. These party planners and decorators are very active on Instagram with a great community.
MASTERS OF CEREMONY & HYPE MEN
For a more organised party, the MCs and Hypemen are the next to call. The hype men are usually restricted to clubs before they were incorporated into parties. The whole idea of an after-party is to give off the feeling of club vibes. This is where the MC’s retire for the Hypemen to take over. As the party scene got hotter, City People TV’s Team met with these MCs and Hypemen; Dr Smile, MC Feyintola Olalekan, MC Amina Atairu, MC D’Blackmc, MC Wole, MC Ajele, MC Moskey, Wisekid The Hypeman, MC Anchor Masters, MC Ayulah, and Samuel d Comedian.
