Those who think that Wuhan Town in Hebei Province in the Asian country of China emerged coronavirus , popular, COVID 1, has finally killed the United Bank for Africa, UBA, plc, a Pan African Bank, Men’s Club, project, drama series, where Nigerians catch Fun , would be disappointed. This is because the bank has finally concluded arrangement to bring back the Men’s Club drama series to meet the demand of Nigerian Fun seekers.
While the artists may not necessarily be bringing out new music , to entertain the guests, but ‘ they know how to make things up’, an official of the Bank told the Value News. The official disclosed that ‘from broken hearts, to shaky friendships and just like boys trying to become boys – Aminu Louis, Tayo and Lanre are back. The Bank, according to the insider source s the Bank have got the consent of these notable artists for another suspense and drama infused season of the Men’s Club this July.
The question on the lips of most Fun seekers who are used to the UBA Men’s Club festival was: Will Tumini come back in Aminu Garba’s life, or Louis, finally found love that can rid him of his ‘mummy’s boy title?
The question that was said to have also been often asked was: Does Lanre understands these older women are more than just years than him, you need experience with them as someone need to tell him! Another question being asked by incusitve Fun seekers was can tayo just make up his mind and ease us out of his numerous love triangles?
These are questions, which Entertainment analysts nbelieve could be answered on Men’s Club set to drop on REDTV on July 22,2020. Many Nigerians had looked forward for the return of the Men’s Club between September last year and now but the Money Deposit Bank, MDB, Authorities, could not jump the gun because of the Nigerian Center for Disease and Control, NCDC, and the World Health Organisation, WHO, a United Nation’s health agency, rules on Social distancing to curb the spread of the COVID 19.
The Bank may have been encouraged to put the popular Men’s Club festival in the cooler over the last nine months because of the Presidential Task Force on COVID 19 under the Chairmanship of Boss Mustapha, who incidentally is the Secretary to the government of the Federation outlawing large gathering of people which was domesticated by the states including the Lagos state government.
As a corporate Social Responsible Organisation, the Bank has no option but to abide by the government Law but was encouraged to announce the return of the drama series with the easing of the tension in the country.
More than 3000 creatives,entrepreneurs and Leaders were said to have attended the Men’s festival in December 28, 1919. The Festival described in Entertainment circles as one of the largest and networking experience for young Professionals ever to be organized by any Bank in Nigeria was a big expose for the young prfessionals.
Note that the UBA, Men’s Club festival was held in Lagos, the nation’s Commercial nerve center on September 28, 1919, pulling a large crowd. Going by the calculations of the organisers of the festival, the anticipated crowd in the 2020 event may be much larger than of the 1919, because of the popular demand.
