    The Future (Pre-Awards) Conference 2009 – Register Now


    So, everytime there is a conference - you hear the speakers teach, admonish, advise, inspire..
    Every year there is the awards, you see the winners - they inspire, they motivate, they are role models…
    But then how about YOU? You must wonder: isn’t it about time that you moved from watching and listening to being?!

    How did these guys do it? What kind of support did they get? Is that support available in today’s Nigeria? Is it as easy as it looks? All the advices they give - are they practical? How can one move from watching and listening to actually being like these role models?



    At this conference, young people will finally have the opportunity to stop being lectured this time around, but to ask the hard questions from some of Nigeria’s most successful, most respected, and most admired old and young achievers!
    They will NOT be lecturing you. YOU will be asking them questions all the questions you’ve always wanted to ask.
    You’ve never been at a conference this real, and this practical before.
    It’s time to stop talking. Let’s start DOING!

    Venue: Studio 868, by UBA Bank, Bishop Aboyade Cole,
    Off Adetokunbo Ademola, Victoria Island, Lagos.
    Date: Saturday, 17th January, 2009
    Time: 11am


    NOTE: If you had registered earlier, please do REGISTER AGAIN on the website The Future Awards, as there were problems with the site. Note that registration is IMPORTANT, because only registered participants will be allowed into the venue of the conference.

    The awards was well attended. Funke Akindele won best actor award and u needed to see the way people screamed when she won, the whole hall went gaga...and when she came on stage and responded in her trademark "jenifa" manner by saying "as in, you know, i mean....the people went haywire with laughter, and she was adorable. Didnt know everyone had caught the jenifa bug, even Dare Art Alade was like, gbogbo bigs girls and yelse. God bless Funke. It was fab at least that was my highlight of the night.

    Larger than large my brother! The whole of Nigeria is talking about the movie. Even within settings of people that you never thought would even watch a Naija movie, much less anything as razz as that! Little wonder the movie vendors are selling it for a whooping N550 on the motorways in Lag and people dey rush am!sport-s:

    I had to go buy copies of it for people at the very "Ebinpejo Lane, Idumota,Lagos".....:lol....that saved me quite a lot of money!:D
