All roads lead to National Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos where music and movie stars will converge for the official launch and induction ceremony of Eddy Ugboma’s Movie and Music Makers Halls of Fame
Expected to grace the occasion scheduled to hold on August 25 are Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, Oba Gbadebo Dosunmu, the Olowu of Owu, and the Akpanuka of Aboh Kingdom.

Speaking, the veteran producer said: “This is a historical event for film makers and musicians to meet, discuss, exchange ideas and sign autographs. These are the only legal halls that are registered in Nigeria. The making, registering, and maintaining of these halls have taken 14 years and we need a home to mount these portraits permanently. Lagos State has made a promise; Nigerian Film Corporation has also made a promise, and we sincerely hope that one of them will be bold enough to acquire this ready-made galleries and TV interviews.”
