The project culminated with a celebratory event at the NAC Resource Centre on 21 December 2012. The attendees totalling nearly 300 were treated to a presentation of Benin cultural dance and drumming, an acrobatic performance, a fashion show featuring African fabrics.

The NACRC 50+ performed salsa, zumba, quadrille, African and line dancing. The youth showcase - Malaika Dance Unique and AYO gave performances of dance, drama, fashion and riddles.

The principal attraction was a drama performed by Edo Cultural theatre titled "Oba Ovonramwen N'Ogbaisi" (the king at the time of the conflict). There was also a medical perspective in the form of a presentation on cardiovascular diseases and good health by a Newham based GP, Doctor Phillip Abiola.

The event was used to launch the book and DVD, and copies of both were issued to the attendees.
