Nigerian Rapper, Tobechukwu Ejiofor, aka Ill Bliss, will mount the stage to serenade guests at the forthcoming ‘Nwanne Connect’ (brothers coming together), which has been tagged as one of the largest gatherings of Igbos in the world. The event is organised by Hero Lager and aims to enter the Guinness World Records as the largest assembly of Igbos.
According to a statement by the organisers, the campaign is in recognition of the Igbo people, their culture, and the celebration of brotherhood. Popularly called “O’Mpa”, Hero is a cultural brand mostly preferred by Easterners and those who appreciate quality beer.
The event which is scheduled to hold at the Chuba Ikpeazu Memorial Stadium in the commercial city of Onitsha, Anambra State, on April 22, 2022, is projected to attract over 30,000 Igbos, with masquerades such as the ‘Ijele Nnukwu mmanwu’.
