Elder O to host O’jez Sallah, Independence shows

Elder OComedian Elder O will be hosting this year’s O’jez Sallah Nite and O’jez Independence Groove shows on September 23 and October 1 respectively at the open air section of the celebrity restaurant chain inside the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.

The two shows will also feature Elder O’s sidekick MC Phrymzo who is gradually making his mark in the comedy sector. Both comedians handle the weekly O’jez Weekend Jamz sessions on Friday and Sunday.

The O’jez Sallah Nite on Wednesday, September 23 will feature the Evergreen Band with Elder O, MC Phrymzo and dance group Scata & Sons with resident Disc Jockey, DJ Multi, on the wheels of steel.

“We celebrate with our Muslim customers when they are celebrating, that is why every year; we always hold the O’jez Sallah Nite. Don’t forget also that there is the O’jez Xmas Blast. This edition of the O’jez Sallah Nite will be as unique as last year’s and even more,” Chief Executive Officer, O’jez Group, Joseph Odobeatu, said in a statement.

On the oncoming O’jez Independence Groove, Odobeatu said it would be a night to remember as “we will make Nigeria’s 55th Independence anniversary a memorable one for our customers. Our clientele are very important to us as a chain of celebrity restaurant, so we always strive to add more value to the exquisite African, Continental and Chinese cuisine we serve them by complimenting it with top notch comedy, dance and music every Friday and Sunday and every national or religious day in our calendar.”

Elder O and MC Phrymzo would be on call on October 1 but this time, the O’jez Band led by Vitus will feature Tony Okri (music veteran Mike Okri’s younger brother), the only female singer of the band, Colours and Pastor who specialises in a medley of highlife and upbeat gyration songs for all occasions.
