March 19, 2015 was a good fantastic day as people from all works of life gathered to celebrate the shortlisted writers of the flash fiction and novel categories of the Etisalat Prize for Literature.
See 10 of the best moments from the event:
1. K Peace performing the Fuji version of John Legend’s All of Me held the audience spellbound!
Peace – All of me (Fuji Version)!!! ????????
2. When Kuti Ojuolape Modupe was announced the winner of the flash fiction category of #EtisalatPrizeAwards Kuti
3. When Gloria Ibru and Keppy Ekpeyong Bassey spoke with South African accents during the re-enactment of Rehanna Rossouw’s What Will People Say?
