Girls Nite Out, a forum for discovering female talents as well as celebrating womanhood is targeted at making a statement that “what a man can do, a woman can do better.”

“All we are planning to do is to showcase the professional capability of women in fields that have overtime been male dominated. We are out to give female up and coming talents the chance to be discovered as well as treat the brothers to a night of fun” Joke Jaiyesimi, Head honcho of the project said.

Girls Nite out made its first appearance ten years ago and two female artistes “Sasha” and “Azeezat” were discovered at the event, before it was suspended in 2002.

Through March 1999- Dec 2002, Girl’s Nite was hosted by Dianne Oputa, celebrated actress, and OAP Funlola Aofiyebi and Broadcaster Tosin Ajayi.

A date and venue are yet to be announced, but “It will hold very soon, my team and I are putting things in place already” Joke Jaiyesimi said on a final note.
