Ikeja – A Red Carpet Tribute Night in honour of the Lady of Songs practically shook the foundation of the famed Niteshift Coliseum in Lagos with spectacular fireworks display, 500 square meters of fluffy red carpet and unforgettable special performances by “the Five Divas”, a selection of five of Nigeria’s best female voices representing five different generations to mark the five decades which Christy Essien Igbokwe who died at 50 lived.
