Right, so on Sunday March 9th, we held the Prize Giving Event for Write Right 2, where we presented the winner, Ifeoluwa Watson with N250,000. We had truckloads of fun. Ember Creek was a great place to hold the event. We had fashion, comedy, performance of the song Wewe by Naomi Mac and Femi Leye, auctioned the painting of Wewe by Ekene Ngige and premiered the Baba Risi Animation. Awazi held down the red carpet and Tolu was a fantastic host. Thanks to everyone that came out, and see you all at the Write Right 3 Prize Giving Event as it continues to grow beyond what we imagined. A documentary on Write Right should be out next week. Of course you’ll be the first to hear about it. Enjoy the pictures. TL. THE RED CARPET CHILLING AT THE WATERSIDE BEFORE THE EVENT STARTED THE TURNOUT WAS MASSIVE. EMBER CREEK WAS FULL. THE FINALISTS THAT WERE AROUND
