The organizers of the Nollywood Health Convention have revealed that all is set for the third edition of the annual Nollywood Health Convention and Awards.
The convention, scheduled to hold at the National Arts Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos on Sunday, December 7, is sponsored by the Saving Life for Africa Diabetes Foundation, SLAD, in conjunction with the Victor Osuagwu-led Lagos State chapter of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).
Nollywood filmmaker and founder of SLAD, Obi Madubogwu, who survived a severe diabetic challenge, said that the purpose of the convention is to promote the health and well-being of Nigerians, especially those living in rural and urban areas.
“As entertainers and mirrors of the society, we want to drastically help reduce the mortality rate of all and sundry, especially the less privileged in our community. We are encouraging and calling on Nigerians, mostly our members to come out on December 7, to check and know their health status. We have gathered a team of medical experts to assist us in doing this. This convention on health is for all and sundry,” he said.
Among those expected to attend the event is President Goodluck Jonathan who will be attending as the special guest of honour at this year’s event, which begins with a blue carpet at 2.p.m.
With the theme, “Live Healthy, Perform Better,” Segun Ogundimu and Uche Ejiofor, medical doctors, are expected to deliver papers at the event as guest speakers.
Music artists expected to perform at the convention include Tuface Idibia, Timaya, Iyanya, Mr. Raw, Flavour, Phyno, Olamide, Tiwa Savage, Kcee and several others.
