It's a Saturday morning and I am outside one of the most desirable hotels in London, The Hilton on Park Lane. Here, with about 150 other people, I have the priviledge to see the U. K. launch of the City of Lagos edition of Monopoly.
Arriving at the event we go and have a coffeeand biscuits with the opportunity to meet the other people arriving including Peter Griffin (and his wife) who I met the day before.
We were then invited to go into the main room to take our places for the main event. See the photo at the top of the page for the order of the event.

NIMI AKINKUGBE, AMB. OLUWATOYIN KAYODE LAWAL (DEPUTY HIGH COMMISSIONER TO THE UK), MR. ADE IPAYE (ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR LAGOS STATE AND COMMISSIONER FOR JUSTICE)
At the end of the event you could purchase a 2013 copy of the game. I was then interviewed for Nigerian television and we all went for some very nice food and drinks and a general chat with everyone.
It was a very nice event enjoyed by all.
