Shola is a hugely experienced professional singer and entertainer who is now available as your very own Mistress of Ceremonies. This lady has performed worldwide from CapeTown to Moscow and has worked with corporate clients Sony Pictures, Harvey Nichols, John Lewis and many others.

Shola hosts your event so that everything goes off without a hitch. She keeps your guests entertained with songs, humour and touching stories so that everyone has a great time. Most importantly she announces your awards, prizes and notices with style, class and warmth.

Shola is also a musical humorist and an award winning songwriter. She has written witty corporate songs for software giant Oracle and a variety of other companies and individuals. If required, Shola composes lyrics to popular songs and performs them at your event, for example to honour your MD, a valued employee or a member of your family.

Shola is an excellent listener, the current president of London’s oldest Toastmasters International club and prior to her music career worked as business consultant for several years in London and New York. She pays great attention to detail and carefully notes down stories and anecdotes to be delivered on the day. If required she will work with you to create a personalised script for your event.

As an after dinner speaker, Shola mixes stories and song to create an unforgettable night. Songs are chosen from her Motown repertoire (clients may select their own songs if desired) and she tells a variety of stories, some humorous and others touching. Topics range from the stories of the Motown greats, to Shola’s own anecdotes about life on the road and how she went from being a business consultant to a professional singer. You’ll laugh, be inspired, hear some of your favourite Motown songs and most of all, you’ll be entertained.

She also has a top of the line Bose L1 Model II PA available upon request, suitable for up to 250 people.

If you’d like to create a glamorous, warm,  fun-filled evening with an entertainer who can offer the full package, then book Shola!

Shola was the opening and closing speaker at our event and tailored her speech to cater for needs of the audience. She is a brilliant speaker.
An absolute professional, she was very easy to work with and her style is an entertaining combination of high energy, humorous tales and warm authenticity. There was a powerful take home message behind every story she shared and our attendees were fully engaged from the first moment.

I look forward to inviting Shola back to other events here at Lloyds.
