From some of us @MANNABBQGRILLS, (Oga Chidi and Sisi Yewande) who are very versed at this MC thingy on a side hustle basis.
We hope the below tips and advice helps.
Let's try to break it down to the basics.
All the very best.

First of all : Prepare the opening of the event. Introduce yourself and welcome the audience to the event. 


Stay simple, natural and fluid.
Stick with the program and try not overthink on the first try.
Manage your segment transitions.
Be prepared when and what to say.
If you're not funny or witty, don't try to be.
Just be yourself and bank on your strengths.
Open strong and end with a bang.
Don't forget to introduce yourself and always be mindful of what you say.

Know your event
Knowing your event is important for all types of ceremonies

Know your responsibilities.
The MC is responsible for creating and sustaining the intended atmosphere throughout the event.

Know your role expectations.
Being an MC means that you have a great sense of humor (in most cases, not all).

Do your research.
Contact your key speakers to find out some background information on them, and use that information to prepare your introductions for the speakers.

Stay organized.
Create or review a given agenda for the event, and plan out, minute by minute, the event schedule.

During The Event

Remain calm.
Being an MC is a lot of pressure.
The event’s success is largely contributed to how well the MC keeps things on track.
While the event’s proceedings can get hectic, it is important to remain calm and focus on maintaining your MC persona.
Nothing shows you’re more nervous as an MC, than talking too quickly.

Be prepared for anything.
As we mentioned earlier, a great MC must always be on their toes.

Close the event.
Your closing of the event should be as exciting and sincere as your opening.
Normally to close the event, the MC thanks all of the attendants, speakers, and performers. 

From all of us @MANNABBQGRILLS : Happy Mcing!
Do let us know how the event went.
All the very best for the future Phillipson02 and all other aspiring MCs in the house.

We Rise!

Amen, Amen and Amen in Jesus name.
We love seeing people grow, as long as they are doing the legitimate things to get money.
This is only the beginning of more blessings for you Phillipson.

1. Self confidence

2. Good voice /speaking

3. Naturally funny/witty

4. Good fashion sense

5. Good posture

And above all note that the person with the microphone is in CHARGE of the crowd. If you are the shy type, avoid looking in people's eyes directly.
