Held at “it” restaurant and lounge, Temple Grill, some of the city’s top influencers and entrepreneurs connected for a night of conversation, networking, good food and fun.

“Using only original beauty products is vital to me and I encourage women to avoid buying fakes. Beauty products can either enhance or alter the appearance of the face. I don’t mind going beyond the shores of Nigeria to source for products because quality is big with me and the product is equally as important as the application itself” – Joyce Oyegbanren, Beauty Consultant and Founder, Voila Signatures.
