MR Olorotimi Ajayi, Chief Executive Officer of Modupe Studios, said that the newly unveiled monument called ‘Ojuloge’, was created to celebrate the Lagos woman as part of the activities of Lagos @50.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that ‘Ojuloge’ was unveiled on May 4, at the open intersection between the National Theatre Complex and Nigerian Breweries in Iganmu, Lagos.
Ajayi told NAN on Friday in Lagos that the monument portrayed the grace, style and passion for fashion of the Lagos women.
“The inspiration for the concept ‘Ojuloge’ originated from the age long idea where people talk about Lagos women as ‘Sisi Eko’.
“When you look at the face of a Lagos woman, there is richness in the face of the average Lagos woman.
“All over the world, beyond Nigeria, beyond Africa, when you see a lady who is brought up in Lagos anywhere in the world, they are the most gaily dressed.
“As we are celebrating the Lagos woman, we are indeed actually celebrating the nobility of the Lagos man who think it worthy to erect a monument in celebration of the Lagos woman.
“In this we are celebrating the nobility of the first gentleman of Lagos State. We appreciate his excellency for considering us to execute this project for the state government.”
Ajayi added that the monument was to project to the world the culture and heritage of the people of Lagos, in which respect is accorded to the dignity and beauty of the woman.
