R&B songstress, Karyn White will be in Nigeria to perform on Valentine’s Day at the La Campagne Tropicana Resort, Ibeju Lekki. This coincides with the launch of the Annual ‘Queen of Queens’ also billed for the same venue.
The Queen of Queens pageant is an initiative, by Atunda, a leading Nigerian event promoter to bring together winners of all other pageants organised annually in the country.
According to Dr. Wanle Akinboboye, founder of Atunda Entertainment, Karyn White was picked among the very many artists considered for the Valentine’s Day launch because she possesses one of the most memorable, distinctive voices ever heard in popular music.
Akinboboye noted that White is an accomplished singer/songwriter who etched herself into music history with her smash hit song, the female anthem, “Superwoman.” The song sold ovver a million units, being certified Gold and named the Billboard R&B Song of the Year in 1989.
The founder of Atunda also noted that, the launch will also give some established and upcoming Nigerian artists a rare opportunity to perform and hobnob with this international super star and enigma. Nollywood stars are among ‘A’ list guests expected to grace the occasion.
