World of Dance Entertainment (WODE) Is More Than Dancing – Eromona Michael, Founder.
The Chief Executive Officer of the World of Dance Entertainment (WODE), Mr Eromona UyotaOghene Michael, has stated that the entertainment platform is engaging in many other activities apart from dancing.
He stated this in a release sent to THE IMPACT newspaper where the platform also highlights its programmes for the year 2020.
According to the WODE boss, the entertainment platform engages in dance and also support agendas that promote good life and developmental initiatives.
“Basically, that is what we stand for and when people hear about World Of Dance Entertainment (WODE), they think it’s all about dance. But that is not the case. We are Dance-pro-life. We support any agenda that promotes good life initiatives”
While stating that the platform is looking to increase its online presence, Eromona also added that plans are in top gear to actively engage trainees with WODE who are still pursuing their academic careers, to give them financial succor.
“We want to increase our online presence this year. We are already working on the WODE-Agent platform which will enable us to expand our company and get more strikers (dancers).
“Secondly, we are currently working on an application called ‘WODEAPP’ which is a dance app, to challenge dancers accross the board.
“We also intend to open a multipurpose service shop here in Ikorodu to grow our brand & create more employment opportunities because some of our members are planning to further their education while some are not even sure due to lack of funds, so we have decided to implement ways to support them this year.
“For us now, it is all about the big picture, expansion and more innovation in our area of specialization. It is our year of boom, so we shall go with the flow but a lot will be coming up out of this stable here in Ikorodu“.
He also stated that WODE would be involving in a baton race.
“As a matter of fact, we had a meeting with the Baale of Ladegboye community on our intention to promote a Baton Race for 2020 and he has agreed to be the Father of the Day at the event, but in due time, Ikorodu will know about it”.
Reviewing last year’s activities of the group, Eromona stated that the group engaged in activities that built the capacity of its dancers, related with their families and organized entertainment events among others.
“We had WODESLAM 2019. It was an event we promoted to infuse dance & youths with skills for exhibitions”, he stated.
“There was also ‘WODE MEETS FAMILY’, a program we planned and executed in 2019 to acquaint ourselves with the parents of our strikers (dancers) and also bring them closer to the brand for them to know about our goals and objectives”.
“Another event that we organised was ‘WODE’s DanceXtravaganza’, an annual Gospel Dance Show that we put together in 2019 to orientate dancers about the need to dance and praise God. It took place at the Living World Gospel Church in Ladegboye”
The group also partnered with other groups in organizing medical outreach as well as dinner where motherless children were hosted and some individuals recognized.
“During the year in review, we partnered with the Ikorodu Metro Lions Club to organize a Free Medical Checkup and drug provision for the people of Ladegboye, Eleshin & Ewu-Elepe communities during which we catered for over 100 indigenes successfully”, he stated.
