Benin City residents are now set to receive Mr. Adewale Mayowa aka Mayorkun on December 30th, 2022 at the Tarex Lounge, Benin.
Addressing newsmen in Benin City, the chairman, event consultant, Tarex Lounge and Chief Executive Officer of Surprise Pub, Mr. Matthew Oshodin, said the event is geared towards revamping night life in the state.
He said the state was once famous for its night life but suddenly, it became a thing of the past adding that, Mr. Lucky Ohimai, CEO, Tarex Lounge has decided to reignite the fire of entertainment in the state again.
“Tarex Lounge is trying to change the narratives of Benin night life.
” So far so good, Tarex has brought 2 Baba aka Tuface Idibia, Eldee Skilz (Odogwu Corner) and Crayon of Marvin Records, DJ Saviora, MC Casino and Edo Pikin.
“What we are trying to do, is to make the Benin people happy.
“On the 30th of December, Mayorkun will be life on Tarex Lounge.
“Tarex Lounge tries to assemble all the best artistes all over Nigeria.
“This time around, is going to be the biggest and we expected everybody to be there.
“I do not think any club or lounge in Benin has brought someone big as Mayorkun and so, this is why Tarex Lounge is taking the stake higher.
“With this, I believe the Edo people will be happy to see an A-artiste in Benin City”, Oshodin said.
The chairman, event consultant said he is particularly worried about the high level of unemployment in the state stressing, that is why those of them in the hospitality business have chosen to bridge the wide margin.
“We are bothered about the unemployment in the state. In Benin City alone, the hospitality business creates up to about 50 percent employment.
“So, we are one of those people that are creating employment in this state because we believe that the government alone cannot do it.
“So far so good, Tarex Lounge has about 30 workers that is working right now, we have the affiliate workers, like the media team, the bottle girls.
“We are creating employment for the youths in Edo State.
“We doing this, we are trying to engage the youths to be thinking right and not to engage in criminal activities”, he said.
He appeal to the state government to partner with them by reducing the tax levies so that they can have the strength to continue with what they are doing.
