Women Celebrating Women Conference

By on June 20, 2013
The "Women Celebrating Women" Conference was held on June 15th, 2013 at the Eko Hotel & Suites on Victoria Island in Lagos, Nigeria. The purpose of the event was to promote and encourage Nigerian women to grow and support each other in the business and the entertainment industry.
The legendary international award-winning singer Dionne Warrick was one of the major headliners of the event. In addition to Warrick, there were several other award winning superstars from the United States and Nigeria. Warrick brought along her aunt and mother of the late great Whitney Houston, Cissy Houston to share some wisdom and words of encouragement. In addition to these two powerhouse international women, U.S based singers Chante Moore, Sunshine Anderson, Trinitee 5:7 and Jessica Reedy attended the event as well. Such an event couldn’t take place in Nigeria without bringing out their own prominent, powerful and inspirational women. Nigerian superstars Tiwa Savage, Waje, Omawumi, Niola and Mo Chedda just to name a few, graced the stage at this jam packed event.

The conference brought together powerful women from different backgrounds to share and celebrate their achievements. It also served as a platform for these women to partner with several organizations internationally. The hope is that the partnership would create an avenue to inspire powerful women of African decent worldwide to pursue their dreams, get involved in their communities and achieve their highest level of success.
