It was all glitz and glam On Sunday, November 26, 2017 at the Exquisite Women of the Year (ELOY) Awards 2017 which held at Intercontinental hotel, Lagos.
The ELOY Awards consistently holds every year to celebrate women who have been exceptional in all their endeavours and various fields during the course of the year and this year being the 9th edition was no different.
The event started with the Red carpet, where the entire entry way was beautifully occupied by sponsors who came to showcase their craft.
Some of these crafts include; a beauty lounge by Dabota Cosmetics with lots of freebies and free makeovers; Instant Pick Up had a stand where they familiarized guests about their services, as well as gave 5 hampers to lucky guests during the course of the event; a Mamador Oil stand was also on standby as they treated the guests to delicious chicken drum sticks and snails fried on the spot with Mamador Oil; Martini and Coca-Cola also had their mini bars where they served guests.
Top designer Ayo Van Elmar also showcased her pieces with beautifully adorned mannequins.
With an opening speech from the brain behind ELOY Awards, Mrs Tewa Onasanya, the event began.
She unveiled the new ELOY Awards Logo which she said represents a woman’s strength, power, courage, determination and empowerment.
Tosin Odunfa and Olive Emodi were the spectacular hosts for the evening, while the keynote address was delivered by Real Estate Mogul Udo Okonjo.
There were performances by Ruby Gyang and Aramide in between the awards, while Sunkanmi closed the show with an amazing performance.
