Omotola celebrates widows
The adage that says who feels it knows it, was aptly put to test when screen queen and musician Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde brought succour to some widows in Lagos.
Her mother having been a widow before she passed away ten years ago, Omotola knows what they go through and with her large heart; she offered to come to the aid of some widows in Lagos.
The event tagged “The 20 Widows Makeover” was her way of encouraging widows, who have worked hard to keep the home front in order despite the demise of their spouses. It also aimed at pampering these women and helping them boost their confidence and self esteem.
The widows were given first class treatment and beauty regime which comprises a total makeover starting with facials and massage by Upmobile Fresh Look Spa and celebrity choice H and H spa. Next they had their hair treated by celebrity hair stylist Ugo at Make Me, and made up by House of Tara, The pampering session was followed by a shopping spree with clothes from Every woman boutique and finally a photo shoot session with international and celebrities favorite photographer Kelechi Amadi Obi.
Speaking about the programme, Omotola said “I’ve always wanted to do something I wished had been done for my mother when she was alive. If you give these women money, they would spend it on their kids. I didn’t know I was going to loose her so soon, she was a very beautiful woman, but because of all her struggles, she neglected her personal needs, she didn’t get to enjoy all these things like going to the spa and going shopping.
