Uche Laura Etiaba, (popularly known as LAURECHE) is the third of eight wonderful, spirit filled children, borne to Mr &Mrs SPC Egbuna.
Growing up, Laureche like David, could be described as a child after God’s heart. She got born again at the tender age of 14 (while in secondary school) and since then has been on fire for Jesus.
Laureche spent her early years in Port Harcourt town. She attended Army Children School GRA, Port Harcourt, Rivers State and later did her secondary school at Federal Government girls College Calabar in Cross River State. She then moved on to Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, Anambra State where she studied Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.
Her National youth service corps was carried out in Benin, Edo State after which she made her way back to Port Harcourt.
She worked in an Oil servicing company for 6years as a Sales Engineer before deciding to totally follow her passion – Events Management and Planning.
In 2004, the brand LAURECHE was formally launched. She has carefully carved a niche for herself and works over the years and all those who have had one reason or the other to work closely with her can testify that Laureche is a trusted brand name with a slogan that says…we make things happen! Indeed, She makes things happen!
2014 was a very special one for her because not only did she mark a milestone birthday, but she also marked 10 years of a most exciting and fulfilling Events Management and Planning Career.
Some people may not know it, but she is the brain behind Excuse Me Laugh, an annual Easter comedy show, which is packaged specifically to provide wholesome entertainment for the entire family, young and old.
This show, which holds every Easter Monday, hosted the good people of Port Harcourt for the 7th edition in April last year.
You must agree with me that Laureche is a high achiever!
While in school, she had a music group by name COLORS made up of four amazing ladies who simply loved to use every opportunity to sing their love for Jesus. Her commitment was not just to the music department but to the work God was doing in the lives of students through the Campus fellowship.
She was so relevant to the work that by her third year, she became the Music Director and then was ordained the fellowship Pastor by her 4th year of school.
She has written so many songs and sang on different stages with the likes of SINACH, Eben, Buchi, Frank Edwards and Samsong.
1st of December 2014 marked yet another great achievement of this wonderful woman of God, as she let us into her world of music and creative arts.
It was the launch of her maiden album…a Praise-Worship master piece, carefully put together to lift the saddest heart or provide the merriest soul, with the right atmosphere of Praise and Worship to a God who does exceeding abundantly above all that we could ever ask or imagine, according to the power that works mightily in us.
Since then she has released two albums and several singles.
Her zeal for the work of The Lord has never been known to wain as she has been involved with so many different successful campaigns for the progress of the work of the kingdom, especially with her inherent Events Management and Planning gifting.
There is no doubt, that she has totally given herself to The Lord to be used as an instrument for changing lives in whatever way opportunity presents.
Four years ago, she added facility management to her bouquet as Oasis Event Center, a state of the art facility to cater to different kinds of events, was birthed
As if she didnt have her hands full enough, Uche Etiaba also started hosting an Easter Event; Miracle worship Concert with Laureche. Three editions have held successfully with the fourth one coming up this Easter, April 22nd to be precise.
Laureche is happily married to Barrister Echezona Etiaba. They have two sons…DIKANNA and Ifenna.
Our sources also have it that Laureche never tires of saying ….I am the wife of a good man!
