Live from the MTN Industry Nite Special in Ibadan

The MTN Industry Night Special is a networking Forum for young Professionals, which takes place in different cities around Nigeria. A group of the finest Musicians and a Speaker whose story has the capacity to inspire success stories in the audience, are brought together to make maximum impact on the lives of young, Nigerian Professionals.

On Friday 29th October, 2010, the Industry Nite Train made its way to the ancient city of Ibadan to give the young Professionals in the intellectual capital of West Africa, a taste of the MTN Industry Nite Special experience.

We were received with open arms and great enthusiasm as General Pype, Reggae Sensation, Benny Paladin and R & B/Soul crooner, Myst, delighted the audience with quality and exciting Live music.

Showbiz Writer and foremost Media Entrepreneur, Ayeni the Great, whose rise from obscurity (ironically from the University of Ibadan) to celebrated success in his chosen career path, shared his story, which our audience could clearly relate to.
