Nigeria’s glitterati descended on Sierra Leone this weekend where the new President Julius Bio was inaugurated in Freetown. Bio won the country’s presidential run-off election on March 31.
First Lady Fatima Jabbie Bio was an actress before she married the President and if yesterday is any indication of things to come, we can expect to see many more Africans in the entertainment industry in Sierra Leone. Three of Nollywood’s biggest stars attended the inauguration: John Okafor aka Mr Ibu, Mercy Johnson in the company of her husband, Prince Odianosen Okojie, and Omotola Jalade Ekeinde. Mercy and Omotola also attended the Inaugural reception and 54th Birthday party of the Sierra Leone President wearing a blue and white structured dress by Iconic Invanity. Also present was Davido who performed at the Inaugural Ball. The artist, who recently won three Headies awards, is expected to perform at the inaugural ball.
“Touch down Sierra Leone! Congrats to All Salone people on the inauguration of your New President. His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio,” the singer posted on Instagram. “I am also honoured to be representing my country Nigeria by entertaining the new government at the inaugural ball later this evening. Thank You and God bless Sierra Leone.”
