Women’s foundation fetes female patients at Isolo General Hospital
A charitable platform for women known as the Women Centre for the Family (WCF) has provided some relief materials to some female patients at Isolo General Hospital as a way of providing some cheer for the women.
Women Centre for the Family is an empowerment platform that is based in Nigeria and Ghana. The centre was inspired by God as a weekly fellowship for women and we have treated themes on divorce, love in the family, forgiveness, women and health, women and aging, free health checks, among others. The centre, which holds its meeting every Thursday at 22/24, Ago Palace Way, Okota, Lagos, was founded by Miss Mercy Ifeanyiwa Nwachukwu around 15 years ago.
The group took items such as sachets of soap detergent, bars of liquid soap, rolls of tissue paper, bottles of Dettol, bottle water among others to the Female Ward of the Isolo General Hospital which were duly distributed to the women.
Speaking about the motive behind the initiative, Nwachukwu said: “The passion for charity and the course of humanity is from God and I have been doing this for over 15 years. As a Catholic, I follow the background of corporal works of mercy, looking at those in prison, the destitute, the widows, the orphans, especially youth. I have been driving Mercy Youth Assembly for Nigeria for Nigeria.
“The inspiration for the Women Centre for the Family came in 2015, we kicked off last year and we have been active for the past one year, mentoring women and we hold meetings every Thursday in Nigeria and every Saturday in Ghana, providing support for women emotionally, psychologically, as related to their health and of course financially. We network and put together skill acquisition programmes for women.”
Asked if there is a cooperative or support from any individual, group or entity, she said it has been a project fully funded by her so far but with expansion in sight, she is calling on well-meaning Nigerians to come in and support.
“It’s been something I have taken up solely on my own. Thankfully I have a good job and I network a lot, channeling at least 80% of my resources into this. It has been bulky for me but once in a while I have seen a few friends and family members and corporate organisations support me.
I wanted to keep it low-key as we are in the hospital like this for instance and I feel it is not everything you expose but seeing that the more we try to do, the more we see more people needing these things, we are trying to reach out to many people and encourage many out there who genuinely want to help people but cannot settle on a trusted platform. We recently went to Isolo General Hospital to hold one of our sessions and took things like sanitary pads, tissue papers, bottle waters and money, both to help some of them with and also to discharge some of women because we heard some can’t be discharged because of money.

Yes, my physique really works to my advantage and I hope to model someday. Which outfits take up most space in your wardrobe? Native wears take most the space. My love for native wears makes me do much of them. And also I get designers who cloth me for free to promote them at events too. What is your costliest fashion possession? How much did you get it?

Antonio Bandaras Seduction for men Do you have any fashion obsession? Yes ooooo, I can use my last money to get Sneakers and sew native wears.
There are people looking up to attaining the height that you are now, what is your advice for such people?
My advice to them is to believe in themselves because the world can’t believe in you when you don’t believe in yourselves and also to thrive in the industry you have to be consistent and creative in what you do.
I travelled from Abuja to Lagos, paid for my transportation and accommodation fee to anchor a wedding for free, so don’t be money conscious initially.

I am an On Air Personality and I’m presently working on establishing other businesses with friends.
Entertainment industry seems saturated; how do you intend to keep afloat?
Saturated is an understatement but despite that, I intend to leave a mark and stay at the top for as long as possible and I intend doing that by been unique and employing creative means to distinguish myself from others in the industry.
As an MC, how do you cope paying bills?
Would you say the career is lucrative enough? Being an MC is a lucrative career and it’s enough to pay my bills but I still have other engagements that compliment my earnings.
Paying bills as an MC at the initial stage could be difficult but with consistency, u get to a point where people get to see the value of what you do and are willing to pay for it then u see jobs coming from every angle making things a lot easier. Does your background influence who you are now? My background sure have a hand in who I am now. I grew up in Lagos and the street of Lagos as we know is entertainment on its own. It was in that spirit that I ventured into MC career then adding acting, OAP and event management to it later on. Are you satisfied with your choice of career? I’m very satisfied.
As the saying goes ” make your hobby your work and you will never work for the rest of your life. I’m doing what I love doing so it’s so easy and smooth for me.
What inspires your various creations?
My creativity is mostly inspired by things happening around me, I pick events and occurrences within my vicinity and the world at large and interpret it in a way that will be entertaining to my audience. Sometimes I go off trends to do something unique that will be known as my trade mark too. What is the major challenge young artistes face in Nigeria?
The major challenge is platform, if you don’t have a platform, your talent is useless. Secondly these young talents are not encouraged, sometimes we beg organizers and even pay to be given the opportunity to perform. Would you say government has done enough for creative people in Nigeria?
I won’t completely discredit government’s role in supporting creative people but I can say they haven’t done enough. I remember a time that I was shooting a short movie and I approached a customary court to use their court room for one of the scenes, they declined because I didn’t have money to dole out, and things like that can be discouraging.
There are some infrastructures and policies they can put in place to make our work easier. I believe they can do better.
As an MC, what is the gap you hope to bridge in the industry?
MC’s most of the time are not given the credit they deserve like those in other areas of the entertainment industry. Organizers will pay music artistes to come perform, pay camera men to cover the event, pay comedians but when it comes to paying MCs they start pricing like they are in the market square.
They be like, is it not just to talk for few hours? But they don’t hesitate to give the music artist who will only perform for few minutes good pay.
As an Mc, I Intend to change this narrative by been principled in my negotiations and letting event planners and organisers know that we are professionals that deserve respect and good pay too.
Do you have any specific research process when anchoring a new event?
Before every single event I go to anchor, I run a research on the kind of event that it’s going to be.
These include knowing the religious beliefs of those having the events, knowing the kind of people that will be present, determining if it’s a corporate or casual event.
These will help me to know the direction from which I’m to approach the anchoring of the event. Other times I go as far as writing a script for the event.
Was there anyone in your family who made you develop interest in what you do presently? None, it is just my passion and love for what I do, even though I have some of my uncles that are into it as well but I got to know them lately.
Who inspires you the most in entertainment industry?
I am inspired by so many, take for instance in Movie industry, Ramsey Nouah inspires me the most, In comedy the likes of Eneche .O. Eneche, Des-talker AY and Bovi etc.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself sitting at the top in the industry and becoming a household name and at that point, I see myself organizing events and creating platforms for upcoming entertainers particularly MCs to showcase their talent and bring them to limelight.
Are you a fan of ankara prints?
Yes, I am a fan of ankara prints, having a fashion designer as wife, what do you expect?
What is your take on African traditional wears?
They will always be my favourites, because they bring beauty on anybody that put them on and speak volume of our heritage, culture, language etc, they distinguish us from the rest of the world.
Do you consider any fashion item indispensable?
How easily do you get your fashion items in Nigeria?
Through the help of a fashion designer.
