Vintage old school night event was held on the 21st of October,2022. It was an event organized by Xphrame media and Afro Heritage International. The event was well attended and feedback was massive.

We bring to you the event picture highlights from the event.
The organizers got so much feedback which they promised to leverage into the next edition coming up in 2023.
At the post event review meeting the organizers agreed to drop the live band aspect of the event and infuse more DJ time with intriguing games.
Associate partners to the event described it as a huge success considering the turn out and audience feedback.


The organizers equally seized the opportunity to appreciate all the event supporters who worked tirelessly to ensure the success of the event. They equally appreciated all the comperes for their support.
According to the principal partner -Akeem Ogunmilade, he expressed his concern about how event organizers fix their event dates on dates already fixed for an event. He said some unknown organization changed their event date which clashed with ours. Such unprofessional disposition is unbecoming in the community. He concluded by saying the event was fully attended despite that.


Mr. Omoaldeogo Sayo, the Event lead designer thanked everyone who left their busy schedule to attend the event, he promised the next edition will be mind blowing.

Excerpts ''I received the long awaited Urban Hero Award for the category of "Art" from the City of Toronto last night, October 26th, 2022! Martin Luther King, Jr. once said that, "All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence." As a Black woman, It takes hard work, dedication and perseverance to climb the socio-economic ladder!

In my time, I have been able to shape the history of Benin and advance humanity with my unique and innovative prowess (selfless community service in Canada and in the diaspora). I'm very grateful for the encomium from the general public. The award event was posted on local newspapers in Toronto! My gratitude to Metroland media, Canadian Tire and everyone that organized this historic award event! Thank you all for believing in the strength of a visionary woman! The plaque has my picture!

There has been the news all over our community of the Employers wages subsidy, some quarters have received the news with skepticism while the smart ones has keyed into and already started benefiting.

In this article Xphrame media blog brings the details with the intention to clarify the simple process.

For readers who are not employers you are advised at this point to just share with your network who are active employers and seeking to recruit employees, this is because it gets juicy and tempting from this point.

Come to think of it, we all agree Canada is a working system with positive governance goals and we are gradually getting into the post covid era, congratulations we are all alive as survivors, the pandemic has gone with a lot of our loved ones.

Straight to business, the wage subsidy program is designed to help employers facing difficulty in recruiting a well trained and passionate workforce. The LDATD is a not-for-profit organization funded to actualize this subsidy program.

The subsidy program will help you get well trained and certified employees, and they will be formally recruited into your business to work for you. The employees are paid by the organization for the first 3 months via your formal pay system, which literally means you are saving on wages for 3 months.

It gets more interesting to find out that there is a whooping free $1500 you are entitled to when you attend just one edition of the employer’s workshop. This will help you further with your business needs.

The icing is that you are not mandated to keep the employees if after the 3 months you realize that you are unable to keep up with the payment. I will stop here and trust the smart ones to key into this opportunity.

Before I round off, your business must be registered and have a payroll system.

To benefit from this simply call 647-868-1357 to benefit from this subsidy.

Power of Inclusion: What is the Fuss About!


Council of Nigerian Professionals Inc. (CNP)

Presents: The Maiden Edition of Power of Inclusion: What is the fuss about!

A Three (3) day event, starting on Thursday - Saturday, December 2nd-4th, 2021


‘Inclusion is not a matter of political correctness. It is the key to growth.”- Jesse Jackson


There has been a lot of discussion around inclusion, yet here we are.

After the August 28,1963 speech of Martin Luther King Jr. during the match in Washington for jobs and freedom… I have a dream...who would have thought that we’ll still be here?


It took double tragic incidents in 2020 to bring the need for inclusivity to the forefront again. Covid-19 gave the world a reset button, and the death of George Floyd on May 25th, 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, may his soul Rest in Peace, brought inclusion back to the forefront.


This is a discussion that affects the world and humanity. It is a call for you, for me, for everyone, that knows that Systemic Anti-Black Racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia and more destroys; and wants to see a new dawn of change.


Outstanding and Distinguished Keynote Speaker panelists will be available to share their view on each day
