Gadzama FC Boogies with Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN

Yesterday, Thursday, October 14, 2021, Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN hosted his football team, Gadzama FC, to a sumptuous cocktail reception. As may be recalled, the football team represented J-K Gadzama LLP at the Abuja Lawyers League Tournament earlier this year.

The event, which began at 6:00 pm, was well attended. As is usual with events hosted by the Learned Silk, members of the football team enjoyed some of the most exquisite drinks and finger foods available on the market.

As the players enjoyed themselves and danced to the groove of music of the night, Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN appreciated each and everyone of them for making the time to attend training sessions and representing his firm at the football competition. He promised the team that he would continue to support them and would register for the next football competition.

The event, which wasn’t a speech making event, turned into an entertaining social outing for the team as they continued to dance all through the night.
