Ohis Oarhe Is Dictating The Narrative In The Entertainment Industry In Enugu
As the year winds down, it’s inevitable that will witness an increase in conversation about artists that deserves the biggest honors at the various music award nights on the horizon. But for me, the true MVPs are those puppet masters like Matthew Ohio pulling the strings in the entertainment industry by providing several platforms that serves as springboard for entertainers to flourish and engage their audience. Along the same line, is hybrid like Ohis Oarhe. This lad is arguably one of the few dictating the narratives in the entertainment industry in Enugu
“My full names are Oarhe Ohis Kelvin also known as MC Ohis. I’m a graduate of Business Administration and Management. As a sucker for creativity, I am very experienced in marketing and sales strategy, promotions, events/concerts planning, management and execution. I have been a part of major projects in Nigeria such as PhynoFest, SMVA Awards, The Wedding Show Case, British Council WAPI, ThisDay Music Festival just to mention but a few. I have created major events and platforms in Nigeria such as The Stage Unplugged, Open Mic Enugu, Romance and Comedy Night, Coal City Art Exhibition, South East Media and Entertainment Conference with GHills Entertainment as project custodian.
Currently, my team are transforming and rebranding entertainment, showbiz and arts in the southeast region of Nigeria. In less than two years we have made maximum impact in Enugu state and currently playing a major role to further position Coal City as a one-stop shop for showbiz and premium entertainment. My team is known for bringing ideas to life and we will give the best interpretation and quality to any shows and event. As a sales and marketing strategist, I have assisted some Wine and Spirit brand with a chunk of the market share in the southeast region of the country.
Projects I have worked on – I started with creating an art exhibition called “Coal City Art Exhibition” and so far we have been able to successfully organized three editions. The platform was created for artists who are underground or unknown to express and showcase their paintings, sculptures, hyperrealism, textiles drawings etc. The last edition tagged THE AFRICAN CHILD showcased over 20 exhibitors and over 800 guests from within and outside Enugu.
Open Mic Enugu. This a household brand. It’s the only platform in the city that gives musicians, spoken words artists, poets, comedians and dancers a platform to showcase their talents while also having quality guests from all walks of life in attendance. It’s currently the fastest growing activation with over 200 guests every last Sunday of the month. This is where you find the best-unheard talents in this region. Our team also organized the South East Media and Entertainment Conference 2018, which is an annual conference for media and entertainment stakeholders in the south East region.
We also have Romance and Comedy Night – an annual comedy show. In February 2018, we invited I GO DIE and Josh2funny. It was a premium comedy show, which opened the door for other comedy show to thrive. Those who were skeptical about the possibility of holding a decent comedy show in Enugu where premium tickets and tables will be sold, came to the conclusion it could be done. Now comedy shows have started selling and even A-List Nigerian comedians such as Basketmouth, AY Live have now started working to bring their shows down to Enugu. We took the biggest risk on that project just to let everyone see the potentials and possibilities. I’m also among the few people discussing with the major mall in Enugu to bring Cinema back to the city. I’m certain that will come to fruition this year” – Mc Ohis
