Derome Washington, Nanna Okpara and Kemm Amekporfor are the partners and owners of Festive ICT who hosted the event. Festive ICT is a local event production company that was established to create joyful experiences in the local community.

“We wanted something exciting and different than a regular Shocker game and maybe get people as close as we can to an NBA game,” Okapra said.
