This Sunday, 17 November at a media and VIP event to hold at the Intercontinental Hotel Lagos, friends, associates, admirers of the late Lady of Songs, Christy Essien Igbokwe’s will come together in Lagos to celebrate her heart, her art and her style.
The highlight of the event will be the launch of her anticipated last album, ‘All of a sudden’, due for release just before she passed. It will also feature the re-launch of her foundation, which was focused on her passion for children. It was called the ‘Essential Childcare Foundation’, but to preserve her legacy, the family is naming it ‘The Christy Essien Igbokwe Foundation’.
Below are photos of her work with the foundation in her final days, release by her family today, which would have been her 53rd birthday.
