Barbie Goes to Brunch with Eku Edewor, Mimi Chaka, Seyitan Atigarin

Barbie holds a special place in my heart, as she does for countless others. She has been a cherished part of our childhoods, and her timeless presence spans generations.

Barbie has become synonymous with beauty, fashion, and limitless possibilities; encouraging young minds to dream big and believe in their own potential.

Let's dive into the world of Barbara Millicent Roberts, better known as Barbie, where fun, pink, and all things cute come to life. Surprisingly, many people aren't aware of Barbie's full name, and I was among them until recently at the Barbie brunch hosted by Eku Edewor. 

This event took place on July 12, 2023, at the Art Hotel, Oniru, Victoria Island. The guest list included notable personalities who were eager to celebrate Barbie's legacy.

The brunch commenced with a warm welcome address, accompanied by a Barbie Bubbly Toast, courtesy of Berol Africa, honoring the fabulous women in attendance. 

One of the highlights was the icebreaker activity, which allowed each Barbie present to share their earliest memory of receiving a Barbie doll and the unforgettable experiences associated with it.

To add to the excitement, there was a Barbie Trivia session where every attendee had the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of Barbie, her passions, and her values. Those who excelled in the trivia were rewarded with fantastic prizes from Filmhouse, Art Hotel, and Berol Africa.

The entire experience was a delight, and as a parting gift, each Barbie received a swag bag filled with goodies and keepsakes, serving as a cherished reminder of this extraordinary brunch.

Amidst all the anticipation, a great buzz has been surrounding the upcoming Barbie movie, set to hit cinemas on July 21st. It's poised to take the world by storm, and I, like many others, am eagerly awaiting its release.

However, while discussing the movie with Nowe Isibor SEGUN-Ojo (PR & Corporate Communications Manager, Filmhouse Group), I realized that Barbie embodies much more than just the iconic pink doll known for her loveliness. Barbie represents a movement that encourages self-love, celebrates individuality, and empowers women to embrace their uniqueness. She inspires us to be powerful in our own way and to uplift and empower every woman around us.

In our own distinct ways, we are all Barbies, but the question remains: What kind of Barbie are you?

The movie has already sparked excitement within me, and I am eagerly counting down the days until its premiere.
