It’s Saturday 21st December 2013. At about 3pm, guests begin to file into Rodizzio Events Centre, 29 Isaac John Street, GRA Ikeja Lagos and Red Carpet kicks off with much fanfare and razzmattaz
At exactly 5pm, guests are ushered in for the main event.
It is the Oju Oge Fashion Show designed to create
awareness against Domestic Violence. It was tagged an evening of runway exhibitions, insightful discussions, music and comedy.
Your’s truly anchored this event from start to finish and I bring you colourful pictures after the cut
Barrister Funmi Falana, Comrade Fidelis Ighodipe and Barrister Steve Adaramoye were on hand as resource persons to shed more light on the societal menace of Domestic Violence. Live music was supplied by Etcetera and Cool J supported by a dexterous DJ.
When Barrister Adaramoye mentioned that domestic violence is not only directed at an intimate partner but can be directed at a child from a parent, i commented that i wished my mom was at the event. With the kind of slaps she dished out when i was a kid, it was pretty obvious she took the biblical injunction, “spare the rod and spoil the child” very seriously and adhered to it strictly.
It was an evening of fun, excitement and guests were sorry to see the show come to an end.
