Joke Silva, Jide Kosoko, others to speak at Rachel Oniga memorial symposium
Veteran stars from Nollywood, Jide Kosoko and Joke Silva, will speak for the late veteran actress, Rachel Oniga, at the commemorative symposium.
It was announced in the late Monday’s Nollywood star Instagram page through the symposium poster that the Oniga family shared.
Oniga died of heart-related disease, on Saturday, July 31, and her family had said she battled with the ailment “for a short period before her demise.”
In her memory, a one-day symposium has been organized by a coalition of NGOs, Nollywood stakeholders, and friends.
The symposium will be held on Monday, August 23, 2021 (today) at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry at Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.
The theme for the event is ‘Living a Good Life (The Legacy of an Icon)’ and the keynote speaker is Dr Benson Uwheru, who is a partner at Ernst &Young, a Banking & Capital Markets Leader in West Africa.
Speakers at the event include Veteran actor and Chairman, Board of Fellow and Trustee, Theatre Arts and Motion Picture Practitioners Association, Jide Kosoko and film producer, Joke Silva.
Other speakers include National President Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas; Veteran Movie Actor/Film Producer, Kate Henshaw; and Veteran Movie Actor, Charles Inojie.
