The Association of Anambra State Entertainment Practitioners (AASEP), comprising Nollywood actors, musicians, comedians, stage performers, masters of ceremonies, dancers and footballers as well as disc jockies to mention but a few, at the end of its general congress, resolved to revive night life in Anambra State.

The meeting held at the VIP lounge, Nourisha Restuarant, beside Golfins Hotels, Awka, was attended by Professor Laz Ekwueme, traditional ruler of Oko as the royal father of the day and member of the Board of Trusty of the association.

The association resolved to organise four events in the state that would revive night life and create about ten thousand (10,000) jobs and to bury their three members, Amaka Igwe, Ozoemena Nsugbe and Lizzy Ogbodo ,who died recently in a grand way, adding that it would soon host a programme in partnership with Governor Willie Obiano government to honour Anambra stars and crown its ambassadors.
