Lagos has recently witnessed the birth of many female society caucuses that have been rocking the Lagos Social Scene. Of course, seeing celebrity women forming different caucuses is not new. It dates back many years when some of them even gave their caucuses different names.
There is no party like a Lagos Party and that is because Lagos celebrity women and babes always attend parties with their Cliques fondly called Caucuses. Some go as far as not just wearing Aso-Ebi but frill their fabric with similar jewellery. Even when Aso-Ebi is not picked, they will wear the same attire.
One thing you are sure of about these sets of celeb friends is that they have over time literally become Siamese twins as people usually ask them, “where is your other friend? Especially if they are seen without the other friend.
The celebrity caucuses have buttressed that popular Yoruba adage that says “Karin, Kapo, yiye loyeni“(a group in an outing attracts adoration and awe).
Though some society matriarch’s caucuses have stood the test of time, but sometime members have had cause to change their caucus these days. The likes of Mrs Nta Lijadu and Mercy Adeyinka, Ita Giwa and Sisi Abbah, Ruth Osime, Mo Abudu, Pat Faniran, Vivian Chiologi, Bff Boss, Ndidi Obioha and Kubara, Dupe Lawale and Enitan Akerele to mention few have made their caucuses subject of discussion as many of them have been absorbed by the trend in their group by wearing same attire, and sometimes rocking the same jewellery at Lagos owambe.
