Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde one of Nigeria’s successful actresses, in honor of her mothers memory along with her Omotola Youth Empowerment Programme team showed love and gave a major transformation to 20 widows. The women were pampered and enjoyed a boost the confidence and self esteem that being made over and pampered can offer.

Apart from the numerous treats that these widows got, they all went home with various gift items like sets of designer pots, cooking utensils and a bag of rice each, make-up kit from House of Tara and words of encouragement from Pastor Tessy of Jesus My Shepherd Church. Kelechi Studios will also be sending a framed portrait to each of the 20 widows.

Omotola message was “This is something I wish I or someone had done for my mother. If you give these women money, they would spend it on their kids. This time it’s about them.When my mother was alive, 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, going shopping. So, this is one thing I would have loved to do for my mum who was a widow for 10 years. It was lovely and fulfilling to see the entire transformation and I am really grateful to all that helped to make this happen”

The businesses that donated resources to this are:  Fresh Look Spa, H and H Spa, House of Tara, Every Woman, Civita and Mossy Ella Bakers . Makeup was done by House of Tara, Hair was done by Ugo Igbokwe of Make Me Beauty and pictures were taken by pioneer photographer Kelechi Amadi-Obi.
