  • A brief description of the event : Soft Book Launch of Super E: the Inflation Smackdown 

The air was buzzing with excitement as the curtains lifted on the soft book launch of “Super E: The Inflation Smackdown.” The venue sparkled with a blend of professionals, educators, public figures, and a crowd of curious children, all eager to dive into the world of economic literacy through the superhero adventures of Super E.

The event kicked off with a deeply moving opening prayer by Ms. Aderoju Ope-Ajayi, the Founder of Dolphin Swim School. Mrs. Funke Feyisitan Ladimeji, the esteemed Chairman of the Association of Professional Women Bankers, delivered a powerful opening speech, emphasizing the importance of economic knowledge.

The event featured a dynamic panel discussion featuring accomplished adults sharing insights on the power of economic literacy. The audience nodded in agreement as they discussed how understanding economics could be a superpower in itself.

An electrifying moment came when a teenage keynote speaker, Eniabitobi Akeredolu, took the stage, eloquently highlighting the potential impact of “Super E” on understanding economics and inflation.

Then came the show-stealer – a children’s panel of brilliant young minds who took the stage to unravel their understanding of the “inflation smackdown.” Their perspectives brought a refreshing and insightful twist, proving that economic wisdom knows no age.

As the room simmered with energy, the spotlight shifted to a fireside chat with the author, illustrator, and the lead on the book’s translation to indigenous languages. Moderated by a representative of Kunda Kids, the discussion provided a behind-the-scenes peek into the creation of “Super E: the Inflation Smackdown.”

The event was not just about discussions; it was also a celebration. The first batch of books flew off the shelves within two hours, a testament to the eagerness of the audience to get their hands on the adventure-packed guide to economic literacy. In a generous gesture, a donation was presented to the CEO of Teach for Nigeria ( non-profit organization focused on  fighting educational inequity), adding a meaningful touch to the celebration.

Entertainment flowed seamlessly, thanks to the skillful tunes of an instrumentalist, while the aroma of delicious food from Café Jade and refreshing drinks from Elles Ice filled the air. Amidst cheers and applause, a birthday cake was cut, marking a double celebration for the author, the brilliant mind behind Super E: the Inflation Smackdown.

Behind the scenes, Ms. Lola King Adekola and her dedicated team, who happen to be mentees of the author, orchestrated the entire event.
