Pulse Influencer Awards: 5 Interesting Award Highlights
The event took place at the exclusive Sea Lounge located in the upscale Lekki district of Lagos.
As expected, the venue was packed with influencers from various social media platforms, friends, partners and Pulse supporters.
For this article, we’ll give you some interesting highlights from the event that we would like to label “The Event of the Year”.
1 Kie Kie was the star of the night
Nigerian content creator and social media influencer Bukunmi Adeaga-Ilori, popularly known as Kie Kie, was the star of the evening. From the moment she walked into the room, everyone wanted to take a selfie or just have it on their side of the red carpet.
The UK-trained marketer not only came for the awards show, but also came to party. When it was announced ‘Most innovative influencer of the year‘his entry on stage to receive his award was enlightened. Let’s just say that besides being an influencer, Kie Kie has to be one of the best dancers in town.
2 Issi’s performance
Pulse has always been a platform not only for established celebrities but also for rising stars. For this year’s Pulse Influencer Awards, five emerging artists had the opportunity to entertain the guests.
One performance that stood out all evening was that of the sexy Issi. She took guests back in time with Nigerian dancehall songs from the late 1990s and early 2000s. Let’s just say she knows how to start a party without putting in so much effort.
Other artists who have performed included, Muyiwa, Dania Ade and An ocean of love.
3 DJ Shawn
When DJ Shawn first gave this electrifying performance in season six of Big Brother Naija, we knew a star had been born. The burgeoning disc jockey was the official DJ for this year’s edition of the Pulse Influencers Award.
Dressed in a tuxedo, he kicked off the event in style, mesmerized everyone with music, let some people dance the night away, and knocked the roof down. DJ Shawn understood the mission and gave an exceptional performance.
