It has come to the attention of Gbagyichild Entertainment, Conveners of Taruwa and Taruwa Festival, and publishers of Taruwa magazine, that a Symon Adeji, former editor of Sleek Magazine is passing off ‘Taruwa’ as his trade name; criminally and fraudulently misrepresenting to friends and colleagues, sending requests of a Taruwa facebook page (created on the 9th of March 2014) and having a site called ‘Taruwa.com’ which also publishes a magazine and hosts a ‘convergence.
This is not an unintentional or negligent act but a carefully calculated and conscious decision to misrepresent and fraudulently pass off this business as Taruwa, which has been in existence since 21st of August 2007.
Symon Adeji is not a member of Taruwa, neither is he a member or cohort of Gbagyichild Entertainment and conducting any form of business with Symon Adeji as such is at your risk.
Meanwhile, we have asked our Legal counsel to commence appropriate actions against Mr Adeji’s actions. We have reported the Facebook page as scam and we have contacted the Internet Regulatory bodies to take action against this website.

TARUWA (a Hausa word meaning ‘gathering’), is an event created by Gbagyichild Entertainment. It is a gathering of artistic and intellectual minds, which creates a platform for artistes to express themselves in a comfortable and intellectual setting. On a typical TARUWA evening, there are poets, vocalists, instrumentalists, comedians and spoken word artistes, performing. It is always a rich artistic cocktail.
In its almost 7 years of operation, Taruwa has grown to be a phenomenon, with a quarterly print publication, Taruwa Magazine, as well as an annual festival Taruwa Festival of Performing Arts in Nigeria, which debuted in 2013.
Taruwa the event holds at 6:30pm at Bogobiri House, Ikoyi, on the last Tuesday of every month.
