ARTISTES Managers’ Association in Nigeria, (AMAN), has announced the engagement of Tosin Adefope and Victoria Okere as their legal adviser and consultant respectively. We reliably gathered that the move will help AMAN in realizing the dreams of its founding fathers. The engagement of the two international experts, our source reveals, is in tandem with their determination in taking their proper place in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
According to the president of the association, Mr. Collins Ifeanyi Onwuneme Ajereh Enebeli a.k.a Mavin GrandPa, “Adefope is an International lawyer with an array of qualifications and experience in the legal field. She has a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from the prestigious Law school of the University of Warwick, United Kingdom. (Alma Mata of Former United States President) Bill Clinton. Master of Laws (LLM) From the highly popular University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), USA where she specialized in Entertainment Law and Intellectual Property.”
Victoria Okere on the other hand is a graduate of English from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. She served at Ondo State-owned printing press as a proof reader before moving to the prestigious celebrity soft sell magazine, City People as an Advert Executive and then on to TULSA printing press the biggest printing press in Nigeria at that time, as a Client services Executive.
She then relocated in 2001 to the Republic of Ireland where she furthered her education opting for nursing thereby fulfilling a childhood love of Caring for people which has metamorphosed into Vickie Robert Hospitality for celebrities which was borne out of her observing the vacuum in the African entertainment industry hospitality wise.
