Twiterave (The Platform…)
Bold Entertainment, a Marketing Communications and Branded Entertainment company had a dream to bring together all Nigerian tweeps (Nigerians on Twitter), as they are frequently called, in an environment of fun to meet cyber friends on the popular social networking site called Twitter.
Twiterave was the 1st Naija Twitter party / gathering ever. It aims and is succeeding at gathering young, energetic and interactive Nigerians to converse, party and be entertained. The first party, Twiterave 1 was announced and all you had to do was follow @Twiterave on Twitter to get free access!
It took place on the 26th of June, 2010 at Club Karma, 147A Younis Bashorun Street, off Ajose Adeogun Street, Victoria Island and in attendance were many celebrities – Don Jazzy, Wande Coal, D’Prince, WizKid, Chuddy K, DJ Neptune, Tunde Ednut, Bizzle Osikoya and many more.
There was an informal award session to recognize the most active tweeps in several fun categories. Don Jazzy and Tosyn Bucknor came up tops in many of the categories. People also got to play the 2010 World Cup Competition on Xbox Games, where teams were selected and a winner emerged. And of course, there was great music and partying!
Twiterave 1 was sponsored by Anabel Mobile, Hip TV, Bee Entertainment, ConceptShot, Michael Imomoh Photography, Glamorous Edge, Club Karma and a few others.
Bold Entertainment kept up the tempo as the 2nd edition took place at Club 10, Saka Tinubu, VI on the 18th of December, 2010. It was loads of fun with free RedBull, Bacardi and Martini Rose on the blue carpet from 9pm to 11pm. It was a night of endless night of partying right afterwards, with various celebrities such as Soul Snatcha of the RoofTop MCs, Tosyn Bucknor, Tunde Ednut and Dipp gracing the occasion.
Though awards were not presented at the venue of the party, winners were announced in the following week, with tweeps like @darey, @exschoolnerd, @toptosyn and @donjazzymohits carting away some awards.
Twiterave 2 was proudly supported by Bacardi, RedBull, Nigezie, Mikel Imomoh Photography, Signature Scents, Number 10 and a few others.
The next edition - Twiterave 3 is taking place @Tribeca on the 30th of April, 2011.
Blue carpet starts at 9pm with loads of paparazzi and networking. We expect Bacardi to serve drinks and cocktails, as is their custom of supporting, along with Redbull, to guests on the carpet. Main party starts right after at about 11.30pm.
