Nollywood stars Sola Sobowale, Odunlade Adekola, Stephanie Linus, Funke Akindele among others will be collaborating with the Federal Nigeria Society for the Blind, Oshodi, Lagos at this year’s May Ball event happening today at the Muson Centre, Onikan, Lagos.
May Ball is an event put together by the Society to raise funds and awareness for the visually-impaired.
At a press conference earlier this week, Sola Sobowale said, “Living outside the country for over fifteen years has made me realize that we live in a society where physically-challenged persons are abruptly neglected and abandoned. I know Nigerians love Sola Sobowale so much, and I asked myself what do I give back to Nigerians, and here I am. I am here to associate with those with special needs and also, to support them and make them proud.”
Asiwaju Fola Osibo, the Chairman, Executive Council of the Federal Nigeria Society for the Blind also explained that the event will be an avenue for students of the Vocational Training Centre in Oshodi to showcase their talents and not just to raise funds.
