It was fun for passengers on board Arik Air’s Flight W3101 on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 as two of Nigeria’s leading entertainers; Ice Prince and Buchi, gave them (the passengers) a lifetime experience while flying from Lagos to London.
While Buchi reeled out successive funny jokes to the delight of the passengers, Ice Prince made sure his music performance was really ‘Oleku’, a Yoruba word which literally means ‘thumbs up’ in English, which was the titled of the hit track that launched him into limelight.
Guests on the flight could not hide their excitement as they showered praises on Arik Air, which the largest airline in West and Central Africa, for the initiative as it added more fun to the over six hours flight and made the trip more memorable.
One of the passengers; Grace Perkins who was co-incidentally marking her birthday on the same day, was honoured with a special birthday song by Ice Prince. Also, three lucky guests; Clement Edoja, Oluwatimilehin Adeyeba and Tonia Ogbe won VIP tickets to attend a show by Ice Prince in London.
There were lots of giveaways from Arik Air and Ice Prince including deluxe CDs, shirts and other promotional materials.
Arik Air’s Senior Vice President, Commercial, Mr. Siva Ramachandran while commenting on the idea of incorporating live entertainment onboard said: “This initiative shows that Arik Air understands the need of her esteemed guests and would continue to introduce ideas that will make passengers have fun while enjoying our promise of safety, comfort and reliability”.
