Weddings, Events & Beyond…

WEDDINGS, EVENTS & BEYOND or simply put WEB by FTK is a sub channel within FTK~Konnect Event Planning, Management & Consulting. It is a web series focused on highlighting all types of African Events & Wedding planning in the western world and sometimes in Africa. The series will give viewers insight into some of the things that go on behind the scenes while planning weddings, birthday parties, and social events and lots more from an event’s planner point of view! Our short term goal is to spark a conversation about the Events Management Industry in Africa and or for Africans in the diaspora.

The first episode is solely focused on getting to know the CEO of FTK~Konnects EventsLLC; Feyikemi Kukoyi aka FTK. Viewers will get a glimpse into her life as a wife, mother and the boss lady. There are many components or in this case various dots that come together to get an event fully produced. This episode and subsequent ones will give you full access to see what it takes to connect the dots of different events they plan, design and coordinate at FTK~Konnect events. Grab your drink & cookies, sit back relax and enjoy our bi-weekly web-series.

Bond With Me 007 - A Luxe Val's Day Experience

Bond With Me 007 event creator is none other than our Lead Event Planner & CEO; Feyikemi Kukoyi of FTK~Konnect Events. FTK finally got the ball rolling on the Val’s day event after dreaming about a classy soiree for this special day for several years.
She set out to create a unique event that was classy and inclusive of all lovers across the board regardless of their age, race, ethnicity, and or background. In order to get her mission accomplished, she carefully crafted a strategic partnership with DeeDee George of TUM Showcase & Bisi Ogunduyile of Jenibelle Stones Event Design.Bond With Me 007 was far from an ordinary event, the curated experience was inspired by the intrigue and romance of 007. The event was designed to combine the thrill and glamour of all that is Bond at Washington DC’s most luxurious hotel reminiscent of Bond’s adventures – Hotel Monaco, a Kimpton Boutique Hotel.
Bond with Me 007 was a Black Tie affair and the guests who attended embodied the Iconic Bond Style. The interactive set design was reminiscent of a Bond movie. The engaging agenda included sophisticated Love Missions to introduce or enhance relations through unique scavenger hunt games and engaging physical games hosted by Seyi Brown. The hors d’ oeuvres & dinner selections were designed specifically for epicureans of fine dining. The rhythm was breath-taking. The featured speaker, Sandra E. gave an uplighting talk on discovering one’s self and the impact of improving our bonds in our personal and professional relationships. Distinguished guests from the Washington DC, Baltimore MD metropolitan areas and as far away as Paris, Cameroon, Gambia, New York City and Nigeria, were in attendance for the grand production.
