The evening also featured an engaging “heads and tails” game, which challenged attendees to recall the release years of iconic songs, adding an element of fun and competition to the evening.

The event also featured numerous raffles and auction prizes, giving attendees the opportunity to win exciting rewards. A special jazz rendition by Shola Okunuga added a musical touch to the evening, creating a truly memorable atmosphere.
