The Niteshift Guvnor, Ken Calebs Olumese, has put the edifice that used to house The Coliseum in the Opebi area of Ikeja up for lease.

According to a report by Yes International, Olumese sealed the lease deal weeks back with a showbiz entrepreneur, who has chosen to remain anonymous.

The Coliseum, until it was shut down in 2014, was unarguably Nigeria’s No. 1 celebrity hangout.

The nightclub began operations on the top floor of a rented apartment in Opebi (where Tastee Fried Chicken used to be).

It opened in 1988 and was then known as The Niteshift.

It, however, moved to its permanent structure in 1999, under a new name – The Coliseum.

The Niteshift and The Coliseum cemented Guvnor Olumese’s 30-year reign as a showbiz impresario before his retirement.
