Melody of society reportage and author of must read on Sundays- ‘Society Happenings’ inside Thisday Newspaper, Mr Lanre Alfred has concluded preparation to launch his anticipated book.
The put together titled ‘High Life: Amazing Lifestyles of Nigeria’s Rich and Famous’ and labelled a ‘game changer’ by those that have caught a whiff of it – is scheduled to be launched on Wednesday April 24 2013.
The venue is listed as Muson Centre Onikan, Lagos.
Information made available to societynowng.com revealed that, just as the book is not about every or anybody ….the event is planned a strictly by invitation.
Further digs revealed that jostle to be a part of the upcoming launch is aided by ongoing drama pervading it.
Respected publisher and promoter of popular brand, Ovation – Mr Dele Momodu lit the light of expectations with this assertion credited to him.
“This book has elevated lifestyle-reporting to a different level of seriousness and respectability. Students and teachers of mass communications would find this book a goldmine of information on the underreported aspect of journalism in scholarly circles”
This thought provoking from the master of his craft- and writer of the concept’s fore word, opened the flood gate of other attention drawing episodes.
According to organisers of the event these happenstance made ‘The social barometer start flailing wildly’ and ‘In twos and threes and more ‘ endless discussions about the book and the launch, both in the open and public, hold sway.
Insiders revealed, a careful compilation of A-list guest list has been compiled to stand the event out – with ‘the gathering of some of Nigeria’s literati, socio-political and economic heavyweights in the mind of the planners’.
A development that is said to make getting the invite without being on the guest list ‘ easier to embark on a round-trip through the Bermuda triangle’
The focal point of celebration attracting this manner of interest- ‘High Life’- is printed in Dubai and described as 300-page coffee-table book with apparent and inherent lessons in the Amazing Lifestyles of Nigeria’s Rich and Famous.
According to the author, Mr Lanre Alfred- Society Editor, Thisday Newspaper ‘ It is just my token to the development of Journalism in Nigeria and beyond’
