Encomium’s ‘White Gig’ party returns

The party will be held in August.

Encomium weekly, a Nigerian magazine and awards company, has announced plans to mark its 16th anniversary with its annual White Gig event.

Kunle Bakare, publisher of Encomium, has assured that this year’s event will leave guests speechless.

“You can be sure that the 6th event in the series will be the biggest, classiest and grandest white party ever,” he said.

Since its launch in 2007, the White Gig has become one of the most anticipated events in Nigeria, with celebrities and well wishers clad in dazzling all white garbs.

In the past, Encomium has hosted celebrities such as Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, Genevieve Nnaji, Otunba Gbenga Daniel and many others.

Founded in May 1997, Encomium Weekly has steadily risen to become a celebrity journal to beat, earning different accolades.

The annual White Gig has been scheduled for the middle of August. More event details will be announced at a later date, organisers said.
