Volt Media, one of Africa’s leading communications and media agencies, has announced the date and details of the 2022 edition of the Bodex Social Media Hangout, an annual event designed for the celebration and recognition of principal actors within the digital media space and their many awe-inspiring acts in the past year.
Volt Media Advisory, the organisers of the media hangout, formally announce that plans are already in top gear for the third edition holding at Radisson Blu Hotel in Ikeja, Lagos on the 31st of July 2022, with the theme, ‘Social Media X- Redefining the Narrative’.
The annual multi-city digital movement seeks to celebrate, amplify, aggregate and recognise the efforts and achievements of Nigerian Social Media Users & practitioners by coming together to have deep discussions, appreciate one another and network.
Since the advent of the event in 2019, save for a brief hiatus in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic that almost crippled the global economy, the organisers annually bring together media stakeholders under one roof to discuss salient issues affecting the use of social media as a tool for creating stability in the environment, curbing the spread of fake news, which is currently a menace, and tapping into the boundless resources embedded in the use of social media as a means of generating income through content creation and enterprise enrichment.
Lead consultant of Volt Media Advisory and Convener of the Bodex Social Media Hangout; Miss Florence Hungbo, disclosed that this third edition had a lot of varieties to make a difference.
Speaking further, she announced a glittering cast of celebrity anchor & comedian extraordinaire, Gbenga Adeyinka De 1st, as the event host, and media personality, Derenle Edun, as the green-carpet host for the Bodex social media hangout season 3.0.
She added that the choice of Gbenga Adeyinka and Derenle Edun as the event host and green carpet host respectively was borne out of the duo’s dexterity and creative prowess over time.
She stated, “After deliberations with our team, we eventually settled for the duo because of their pedigree in show business and the entertainment industry. They both will bring that glitz and glamour to the event. They are a perfect fit for what we are trying to project.
Gbenga Adeyinka is a unifier and blends with both the young and old generations, Derenle is not a greenhorn when it comes to hosting the green carpet at events. They are both ready to bring their experience to play and ensure we have a smooth, dramatic and fun-filled event.”
On the uniqueness and excitement surrounding this year’s edition, she stated, “This year’s edition is strictly by registration and invitation and its power-packed. We have varieties of speakers, moderators, panellists, and observers like Aproko Doctor, Efe Omorogbe, Iyabo Ojo, Omojuwa and other celebrities and media personalities. We will also have in attendance stakeholders like NDLEA, EFCC, LAMATA, Entrepreneurs, Ministry of Information, Nigeria Police Force and other stakeholders to discuss the ‘Impacts Of Social Media On Law Enforcement’.
To add fun to the event, we have artistes like Wale Thompson, Aralola Olamuyiwa ‘Ara’ (First Female Drummer) Humblesmith, Skales, and others while DJ Kexzy would be on the wheel.”
She added that, there are other side attractions as well.
