The exclusive event was the culmination of the #OperaConfam Challenge, which rewarded three lucky fans for creatively sharing why they love the Opera News app.
The three grand prize winners who walked home with the new Tecno Phantom 8 were not the only winners in attendance, as other contestants in the #OperaConfam Challenge, were also invited to spend the evening with Simi and rewarded with branded Opera items.
The ever delightful singer then spent the later part of the evening fielding questions from the fans in attendance, and sharing the inspiration behind some of her biggest hits.
“We’ve sang, we’ve eaten, I’m glad we did this. The highlight for me was seeing these winners show their creative talents, one with the painting, another with a song. Big ups to Opera for putting this together,” said Simi, after the event.
Prince, one of the lucky winners was visibly elated, saying that meeting Simi was “A dream come true” while Samuel, another winner who entered the #OperaConfam Challenge by making a gorgeous painting of Simi, was lost for words after the event.
The evening rounded off with a photo session, where everyone got a chance to take pictures and the customary selfie with the sultry singer.
“Seeing the creativity on display, the great music and the prize winners all having fun with Simi was a great experience for everyone.” He concluded.
