We all know Mummy Christy was a very charitable person who strongly believed that service to humanity is service to God. Before her death she planned to launch her foundation ‘The Christy Essien Igbokwe Foundation’ and release her 11th album on the 11th day of November 2011 (11/11/11). She was able to achieve some studio recording for this well anticipated album and we intend to keep her dream and vision alive by launching it alongside her greatest hits. Thus we came up with programs to drive her legacy – and to emphasise what she lived for.
This will be achieved through a world class event where tribute will be paid to her, her new album “All Of A Sudden” will be launched along with her Greatest Hits, and the grand launch of the Christy Essien Igbokwe Memorial Foundation. This event will take place on the 17th of November 2013 at Intercontinental Hotel Lagos. Red carpet will start by 4pm main event 6pm. We would like to celebrate her art, her style and her charitable gesture to humanity. Thus the event is tagged ‘Christy Her Heart Art And Style’.
Since the event is strictly by invitation we’re giving out invitations to fans via an essay competition tagged “How well do you know the Lady of Songs” where they’ll log into the official website http://www.christyessienigbokwememorialfoundation.com and upload their 250 word essay to win Invites, Cds and other consolation prizes. Our Tvc for both the Official Launch and the essay competion are already on youtube:-
