Olumide Akpata Gives Free Concert Ticlets To 100 Lawyers In Abuja



In recognition of the increasing importance of the entertainment industry to the Nigerian economy, Olumide Akpata will be giving away 100 free tickets to lawyers to attend the Burna Boy and WizKid Concerts at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th December 2019, respectively.


Mr. Akpata is of the view that  Entertainment Law has the potential of becoming one of the most lucrative areas of legal practice in Nigeria and in this regard young lawyers  must strategically position themselves and get fully acquainted with the sector which is worth over USD5 Billion with an estimated revenue of over USD10 billion by 2022.

During his time as Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association Section on Business Law (NBA-SBL), Mr. Akpata also sponsored 100 young lawyers to watch ‘SARO THE MUSICAL’, a stage play produced by Bolanle Austen-Peters at Terra Kulture Victoria Island, Lagos.

Asides from the strategic career-focused rationale for this  gesture, Mr. Akpata believes that lawyers should also find time to unwind, de-stress and enjoy the festive season after a long and tough year.

To be eligible to win one of the  give-away tickets, respondents were asked to:

1. Follow Olumide Akpata on his social media handles (Twitter: @oluChub IG: @olumide_akpata LinkedIn: Olumide Akpata

2. Answer the following questions:

a. Since the inception of the Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) rank, Name 5 (five) Past Presidents of the Nigerian Bar Association who were not Senior Advocates of Nigeria when they occupied that position?

b. Name 3 entertainment Law experts in Nigeria.
