Umu Igbo Unite Launches Los Angeles Chapter

Umu Igbo Unite Launches Los Angeles Chapter

All young Igbo professionals as well as well-wishers, were present on Friday June 23rd 2017 in Los Angeles, California, when Umu Igbo Unite (“UIU”) formally launched their Los Angeles Chapter. UIU was created for the sole purpose of bringing the Igbo culture under one roof or city, creating cultural awareness, or rather increasing it, unifying people of the Igbo community together. The night was nothing short of magical, seeing different people with a similar cultural heritage unite, in an environment full of love, life and laughter!

The UIU Los Angeles chapter launch event kicked off in a huge way and as it took place simultaneously during the weekend of the BET awards, it was definitely a weekend to remember in Los Angeles. The night kicked off at The Parlor in Hollywood, with a professional mixer, swarming with Igbo faces from all parts of Southern California and other states in the US. All the guests had their red carpet moment and looked stunning, from the ladies in African (Igbo) head wraps and ankara print tops and bottoms, to the men in the caps and printed pants, it was a sartorial delight to witness. IMG_2925

Members of the UIU Board; Ada Azubuike and Donald Osakwe, welcomed arriving guests and introduced the Event Coordinator and the Fund Raising Chair,  Esther Ojeh and Obi Iloh respectively, as the hosts of the evening. They did a fantastic job as expected, leading the crowd in activities that included Igbo trivia and raffle tickets to the star studded UIU after party, where artists like Jidenna were present. This was also the welcome party for all African nominated artists at the BET awards.

Don’t fret if you missed this kick off, there are more social gatherings to come! An inside source reveals the next meeting will be on July 30th 2017! So get your minds prepared and your ankara tops in check, its always going to be a fun night to remember!
