In a celebration of pan-African culture the ladies will dine to a Durban-meets-Lagos culinary journey inspired by celebrity chef Coco Reinharz and will enjoy the night out with music performances by Nigerian artists Pheelz and Don Ayo, and South African artists Sjava, DBN Gogo, The Cousins SA and Mafikizolo.

This celebration comes hot on the heels of the “The Real Housewives of Lagos” premiere held at The Jewel Aedia in Lekki, Lagos, which was hosted by “Big Brother Naija’s” Toke Makinwa.

The show, which is produced by Livespot 360, is the 16th international version of the “Real Housewives” format and the third to be adapted in Africa.
