The advancement of modern technology on a communication super high-way made it possible for the disco Jokers, Mohamed Bio and Joe Pokowa, played the latest African music mainly from Sierra Leone and Nigeria. To entertain other nationalities, the DJ’s also played hip up and other American series.  Food and drinks were sold at very low prices.

Dignitaries present in the occasion were among them, a veteran politician, Dr. Alicious Joe Jackson and Tegloma powerful chapter president, Mrs. Josephine Ladipoh.  The chapter president was not found on the high table, chosen to sit among the participants perhaps, avoiding an element of bureaucratic control.   The political party chapter leaders such as, the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP), Mrs. Khadijatu Tegan-Sie and the newly appointed All  People’s Congress Social and Cultural group (APC/SC), Mr. Sheik Daboh were also there rubbernecking.   One of the founding fathers of the Tergloma Dallas chapter, Mr. Henry Gebe was in the gate to ascertain accurate fundraiser.
