As part of the burial rites in honour of the late Lady of Songs, Christy Essien-Igbokwe, a number of Nigerian artistes, particularly from the motion picture industry, have said they would give the late musician a memorable and befitting burial. Already, chairman of Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), Chief Tony Okoroji has beckoned on all stars to show up during the historic memorial football match slated for Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos on September 3.
In view of this, notable artistes like Segun Arinze, Stella Damasus Nzeribe, as well as top musicians like Onyeka Onwenu, Baba Dee and many others have indicated interest in the proposed match. The latter which would be an encounter between actors and musicians is a novelty match in honour of the Lady of Songs who died in Lagos on June 30. It is expected to be a match of the stars, just as sports writers and entertainment writers would equally open the main match with a football battle.
Explaining the importance of the football encounter recently, Chief Okoroji said the gathering of stars on the football field is a mark of respect and honour for the late Christy whose footprints on the Nigerian entertainment landscape cannot be erased. According to Okoroji, every lover of music, sports and movies should identify with the match, which is being organised to celebrate Christy. The match is said to be a free-for-all show with an opportunity for Nigerians to see many of their screen/music stars live.
"Thousands of fans of Nigeria’s wave making music, movie and comedy stars, will have the unique opportunity at the show to shake hands with their favourite stars, take photographs, obtain autographs and even win lots of prizes,’’ explained Okoroji, who hinted that his committee had concluded arrangements with security agencies such as LASTMA, FRSC, Nigeria Police and others to provide adequate security for the crowd.
Meanwhile, other events being planned for the burial rites include a symposium at the National Theatre, Iganmu om Monday September 5, a red carpet /tribute night at the prestigious Niteshift Coliseum, Opebi on Tuesday September 6, musical shows and candlelight processions in several cities across Nigeria on Wednesday September 7 and a lying-in-state at the VIP Foyer of the National Theatre on Thursday, September 8.
On Friday September 9, remains of the late singer, composer, prophetess and activist would be buried in Lagos, followed by a special funeral service at Archbishop Vinning Memorial Church, Ikeja. This would thereafter be followed by spectacular cultural dances, musical floats, fashion parade and other colourful events.
