The event sponsored by Maltina, was hosted by Freeze of Cool FM and featured the best of comedy and musical performances.
According to A.Y, the outing remains one of the best since the history of the event, “When we began planning for this edition we had so much we wanted to achieve and we put in a lot to bring to reality all our ideas. I’m so glad our efforts paid off well and I’m very convinced everyone who came out had a great time. This is just the beginning as the other editions for the year will even be better” he said.
One of the major highlights of the event was Maltina’s surprise give away of ten iPhone 6 mobile phones to guests, half way into the show.
Toyin Aimakhu-Johnson one of the lucky winners was more than excited when the quote on her Happiness card which was distributed to all guests at the event, was announced as the winning quote.
“This is just awesome. I am still very amazed. I had no idea this was going to happen. When they came up to say Maltina will be surprising 10 guests with Iphone 6, you could practically here the mumbling in the crowd. And all of a sudden I hear the quote on my card announced as the winning quote. I’ve had so many wonderful surprises this year and this is certainly one of them. Well done Maltina, this is really remarkable”, she said.
Speaking on the reason behind the surprise gifts, the Senior brand manager, Adewole Adedeji said the brand wanted to share happiness with guests in a way that will trigger real excitement they won’t forget in a while and we felt this was the best ways to do that.
“We love to see our consumers happy, that’s the core message of the Maltina brand, “Sharing Happiness”, which is one of the reasons we decided to renew our partnership with AY Live. Happiness and pure excitement is the real proceed for all the hardwork we put into the brand and we are glad we did this during the show”, he said.
The AY Live series will continue with the Portharcourt and Abuja legs billed to hold later in the year and Maltina promises nothing short of an experience as memorable as the Lagos edition
