It was a grand event which was to also mark the celebration of 25 years of THISDAY and the introduction of a new streaming service.
Superstar model Naomi Campbell was also present at the event and took the stage alongside Obaigbena to announce the launch of the streaming service.
It was his wife Chrissy Teigen who first revealed that the singer was in Nigeria.
“John went to Nigeria for a couple days and I thought about going, purely to find Michael from 90 days, but…the enchilada has rendered me useless,” she wrote on Twitter.
