"[The] LDS started five years ago with just an idea in my small shared apartment back then in Ebute Metta", Convener of the Summit and Managing Partner at Mustadrels Media, Adetona Adewale Akeem (AKA Slimfit), said.

"Our aim was simply to facilitate a platform for the convergence of digital marketing professionals and business thought leaders for the advancement of SMEs and digital media enthusiasts in Lagos. The support received for the last four editions spurred us to organise this milestone 5th edition".

Adewale added that despite the global pandemic and lockdown, the fourth edition of the LDS was a success.

"We put our digital media preaching into practice by holding the first-ever all-virtual edition of the summit. It is this consistency and innovative thinking that our partners and sponsors are proud of and ready to collaborate with us again for LDS 2021", Adewale said.
