Last night I attended The JoeBol Exquisite International Achievements Recognition Awards Dinner at the Hilton Hotel Docklands. It was the second of what is promising to be an awards event destined to make a significant impact on the UK award event scene. Sponsored entirely by the power couple Bola Imuaphe and her husband Joseph, This husband and wife duo delivered a truly fantastic event showcasing the fantastic work of some amazing individuals from within our community.
In attendance was an array of distinguished guest and industry professionals ranging from former Mayors to current Mayor, Princesses, CEO's, newspaper editors, well noted actors and actresses from both the UK and abroad, sporting champions, celebrity designers, professional models, media icons, the list goes on and on. From arrival we were greeted by the very professional hospitality team of Ju'nique Ventures who ensured that we were well taken care of for the entire duration of evening with a very impressive display of service with professionalism and class. It was therefore no surprise that their CEO Jumoke Husain was awarded The Hospitality service of the year award on the night which she graciously received.
Co-hosting the event was the immaculate icon himself Adebayo Jones, the King of Couture and Baronessj, Jumoke Ariyo, CEO of BJ Media and Events. The evening consisted of the awards ceremony which recognised the achievements of some well deserving recipients, fabulous entertainment, a fashion show featuring dresses from the fabulous Joebol collection and the launching of the JoeBol Exquisite magazine.
Among those recognised on the evening was Ayan De First for the promotion of cultural heritage, Sherry Ann Dixon and Adedamola Aminu for their outstanding work as community leaders. Jenny Okafor received the Woman Advocate of the Year award and Fabio Abraham who was awarded actor of the year.
All in all the event delivered all it promised to and more and I look forward to seeing what will be next from the JoeBol Exquisite team. Congratulations Bola Imuaphe on a well-executed event keep up the amazing work.
