A joyous shout rented the air as each of the celebs breezed in. Osita Iheme, who is well known as Pawpaw, one half of Aki, turned the prison premises into something else when he came in.
About 32 inmates were freed on Friday March 23,2012 with the support of Nigerian singer, Lamboginny, who is a prison warden, and some of his friends in an event tagged Freedom For Helpless Inmates.
The high point of the event was when the freed inmates were called and re-integrated into the society by the celebs. An un-freed inmate identified as Nokia, who is a fuji artiste got a recording contract deal courtesy Dede Mabiaku.
He also promised to provide the prisoners good toilet facilities, change and provide their mattresses, plates, and also visit them regularly to make life meaningful to them.
Top celebs at the event were Mrs Helen of NTA, Denrele, Pawpaw, Denrele Edun, Laide Bakare, Karen Igho, Deji Bakare (Mr Nigeria 2011), Dede Mabiaku, Kaffy,Flowssick,Ilami and many others.
The event, which was well supported by Nigeriafilms.com and Ovacom Media,largely turned out to be a success, especially with the joy it brought to the prisoners.
