A new memoir A TOAST TO LIFE detailing the life of Juliet Ibrahim has been launched in Lagos by the Ghanaian actress and Philanthropist.
The event had in attendance influential figures in the Nigerian entertainment industry, politicians and more including Chief Dele Momodu, Elvina Ibru, John Ogu, Kabiru Rabiu, Gloria Ibru, Sujimoto, Praiz, Tewa Onasanya, Oge Okoye, Pretty Mike, Skuki, Eniola Badmus, Adenike Oyetunde and Richard Mofe-Damijo.
It was hosted by Nigerian television presenter Denrele Edun. The author who’s also the African brand ambassador for Cintron energy drink entertained her guests to various cocktails made with Schweppes, finger foods, soft music from a violinist and of course the guests drunk the celebrities favourite champagne, Luc Belaire.
One of the most notable parts of the event was when excerpts from the book were read by Richard Mofe-Damijo, Charles Otudor, Noble Igwe, and Chigurl. The audience was held captive by the revelations that came to light, which many never knew.
For instance, how she survived three civil wars and how her cousin was killed while her family was trying to escape from rebels; how she survived rape and sexual abuse, the ups and downs of her previous marriage, and much more.
