Yeye Cabaret – the biggest annual Mother’s Day showcase in Lagos, Nigeria – on Sunday, 8th of May 2022 hosted guests to its 8th edition of an unforgettable evening of fine dining and movie premiere at the Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi – Lagos with the theme for this year; “A Gift Of Love”.
This is coming after the brand had gone on a 3-year hiatus owing to the pandemic and the need to rebrand and rejuvenate to match the trajectory of its vision to offer the ultimate Mother’s Day experience.
The short film premiered; “NKEM (My Own)”, produced and directed by Ayodele Ogundipe – Creative Director, Yeye Cabaret – buttresses the subject of surrogacy within the Nigerian society and gives insight into the possible paradigm shift toward parenthood among the millennial generation to reveal the unvarnished truth of the journey of motherhood that is often less represented.
Speaking on the objective of this year’s edition, Executive Producer and Director, Ayodele Ogundipe said, “The objective is to expand the scope and make Yeye Cabaret more socially relevant and impactful, discussing issues surrounding motherhood as it affects us in Nigeria in line with the reality of the political and social culture of our environment”.
Amongst the list of attendees who graced the event were – Abimbola Fashola (Her Excellency, the former First Lady of Lagos State), Mrs. Taiwo Ajai-Lycett (veteran actress), Iniabasi Leye (CEO ROOMS Art Therapy and the Face Of Yeye Cabaret 2022), Esther Chimodi Ofomata (Dana Air representative), Titi Fowora (Creator, Interiors By Design), Tola Akerele (Director, Bogobiri House), and many more.
