Yeye Cabaret 2020 set to celebrate Mother’s Day in style
Yeye Cabaret, the biggest mother’s day entertainment showcase is set to treat mothers and their entire family to an evening of exquisite experiences in fine dinning, musical theatre, shopping, others, on March 22, 2020 at the Podium Lekki Lagos.
The conveyor, Ayo Ogundipe said the ideology behind the event is to promote the culture of mother’s day celebration in Nigeria. Over the years, I discovered there is no sense of location around Mother’s day. The day just fizzles’ out, no anticipation, no build up, nothing, and considering the fact that mothers play a great role, a lot more should be done to celebrate and honour them. “So with 2020 Yeye Cabaret, we want to raise awareness on social issues that affect women especially mothers in our society through musical theatre. We don’t want it to be a concert or an open-mic, which is why the name is Yeye Cabaret, a place of entertainment where there is live performance, eating and drinking. Everyone that attends Yeye Cabaret is catered for, whether you’re a regular ticket holder, VIP, or dealers.
The evening will begin with series of activities to indulge our guests. Fun pictures at our photo booth, also massage therapy at the pop-up spa, makeup at the pop-up salon, chill out session at the jazz lounge, others. All of these experiences will take place within our shopping arena. The experience then transitions into the cabaret setting where theatre meets fine dining to give guests a unique taste of hospitality and entertainment” he said. Ogundipe further said: “The event would also capture a presentation of the fourth generation portraits which consist of a mother, daughter, grandmother and great grandmother.
This is aimed towards showcasing the beauty and importance of documentary history, which is unique to Yeye Cabaret especially in a country where history is no longer our curriculum activity, we’re using our creative arts to intervene and create awareness of the importance of history documentation.
Another segment is ‘Iya ni wura’ which means mother is gold, where a mother in the audience will be paid a surprised tribute by her child; thereafter a presentation of a bouquet to celebrate that woman, courtesy of Yeye Cabaret. In Lagos everyone is busy without the time to celebrate the special people in our life so the idea is to give everyone the opportunity to highlight their stories and celebrate their mothers at Yeye Cabaret.”
