Driving towards Ikate Elegushi after 2nd round-about Lekki towards Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi Palace, you will see a gew giant white building just beside the Ikate palace, that is the new project of respected Oloori Aramide Sekinat Elegushi, the pretty wife of Oba Ademola Elegushi.
It is a 2000 banquet seater hall with 4500 theater style arrangement event hall. It is the biggest event centre in Lagos right now and from all indication, it is a big project from the royal stable of the Elegushis. One need not be told that billions of naira must have been spent to achieve the tasteful finished look of the event centre.
The event centre is not the regular event centre you see in Lekki and it environs. The architectural look of the hall is a pointer to the fact that the Elegushis are not only fashionable, they have a high taste when it comes to buidlings and furniture. The event centre is not only massive, it is one of it kind. From the Chiavari chairs to the tables, they were specially sourced to meet the taste of Oba Ademola Elegushi and his wife, Oloori Aramide.
When you drive towards the buidling, you will appreciate the white painting which was used to bring out the finish touch to building while another thing that will catch your attention is the waterfall.
What about the car park? You will hardly see an event centre in Lekki, which can take 2000 guests and more and still have a big carpark that can take 1500 cars at a go.
Well, you may say the Elegushis are land owners but it takes a businessman or women of foresight to build such capacity and let it have such big and spacious car park.
Those who know reveal that the Elegushi doesn’t want a situation where guests will always complain of another guests blocking them at parties. In their words “we want our guests to enjoy themselves without stress whenever they come to party at “the monachy Hall”.
What about the fittings of the Hall? Oloori Aramide dazzled many in this. Being one of the most stylish Nigerian queen has set her apart and this she has also put to play in the fittings. She went abroad to get all the luxury chandelier and lighting which befit the name of the hall itself, “The Monachy”.
From the pillars which are designed like a royal pillars to the door, to the air-condition, one could say that it is not your regular event hall. Oloori Aramide supervised and monitored the hall from start to finish.
Why won’t she? Nobody knows her husbands better having being with him for over 15 years and still counting, he knows what his taste is in fashion and building. He loves to have his state show in all areas.
Still dont know how to get there? It is located at KLM13, Lekki Epe Express Way, Ikate Elegushi, Lagos.
Just as you are reading this, many celebrities have made their bookings to use the hall for their high octane owambe.
