Showbiz guru, Edi Lawani honoured in Michigan, USA

One of the most consistent and steady behind-the-scene gurus in the Nigerian entertainment industry, Edi Lawani has been honoured by his people in far away, Detriot, Michigan, USA.

The Igarra Progressive Union (IPU), USA branch conferred the honour to Lawani for his immense contribution to Nigeria and his community at its 2nd Bennial Convention.

Lawani, who is an events co-ordinator extraordinaire, apart from being behind the success of many major and huge shows and events in Nigeria, also helped to nurture and promote many young talents from obscurity to popularity.Virtually everybody who is somebody in the Nigerian entertainment knows Edi Lawani.

For example, Top Julius Agwu in his book “Jokes Apart” paid tribute to Edi Lawani and his wife, Tonia, for helping him find his bearing in the industry.

Julius wrote about the shorts-loving and taciturn gentleman” Edi Lawani is someone else I stood on his shoulders…I remember that Edi used to handle sound for all for all the A-list shows, so when he noticed that I was talented, he was always giving me the elder brother kind of advice.He was one those people that really advised me on how to package myself”

Speaking about Lawani, Dr. Charles Jagun,President Igarra Progressive Union, USA noted that he was one Igarra son that has done his people proud by excelling in his chosen profession and line of business. 

 

Edi Lawani, My Lagos, ‘Lagos is too anonymous, It kills the tendency for mankind to harmonize’

 

The clean-shaven bearded one is amazed at the fact that the good, the bad and the ugly all co-exist in the city of Lagos….

 

Where do you live in Lagos and why?

I live in Festac because by chance I’ve been living there and I’m still living there.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in the village in Edo State.

What’s your earlier Lagos experience?

The rush for molues in those days, coming in from the village, one thing that struck me was nobody giving a damn about the other person. That impersonal and distant attitude.

When did you start living permanently in Lagos?

The fact that in the one town, you can find the good, bad and the ugly. And even the indefinable. It gives you a platform to be who you want to be.

What do you hate most about Lagos?

The impersonal attitude of the inhabitants. Lagos is too anonymous. It kills the tendency for mankind to harmonize.

How do you move around Lagos?

Depends on where I have to go to. But mainly I move around in my own private car.

At other times, I can choose to take public transport which can be from okada to anything. At times too, I ride my own power bike.

What do you miss most when you’re outside Lagos?

When I’m outside Lagos, I lose the sense of pace. Like I’m in Port Harcourt, I have a meeting for 10, I’m ready by 8 pm. In Lagos, your mind is tuned to the traffic, so when you find yourself in a different environment, your body clock does not adjust easily.

Where do you shop in Lagos?

I don’t have a particular place. I’m not a very finicky person.

What’s your favourite Lagos hangout?

The Niteshift Coliseum.

What new projects are you working on?

A beauty pageant for men. And a dance project called Jungle Fever.

EDI LAWANI AND WIFE CELEBRATE 21 YEARS WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

 

Showbiz promoter, Edi Lawani is celebrating his 21st wedding anniversary with his wife Tonia.

The promoter took to his Instagram page hours ago to celebrate.

He shared a throwback picture of both him and his wife with the below caption:

 

”On this day, 21 years ago, I married my best friend, confidant and ‘partner-in-mischief, Tonia. I had known the ginger-haired girl forever but we were not friends. Her friends were my friends. Then many years after, we became friends, more than I was friendly with her friends who were my original friends. Then … (this part will wait for the 25th anniversary story). I thank God for journey so far. I thank our well wishers too”.

In an interview, Edi once spoke of how he puts in the same amount of passion into organizing all his events irrespective of how important they are.

“Yes, I like to be on top of the game as a producer. As a producer you have an idea of what you have set out to achieve and every minute, every second counts for that mission to manifest and for me, a birthday party for a 10-year-old is just as significant as a national TV show and live broadcast. It is the same emotion, the same passion, the same adrenalin, the same anxiety and the same sentiments because nothing scares me as much as failure, so I can’t take any chances”, he said.
