Mushin Makeover TODAY!




Today, an awesome project is taking place. this first-of-its-kind unprecedented nation building project that will draw over 5,000 volunteers to paint houses on seven MUSHIN streets on Saturday, December 12, 2009.

The Project has continued to enjoy the support of individuals and corporate organizations across Nigeria, as one of the finest paint producers in Nigeria, BERGER PAINTS, are also partnering to train about 100 unemployed Mushin youths on the art of painting preparatory to the exercise.

Other corporate organisations that are a part of the Mushin Makeover Project in various supporting roles include Stanbic IBTC Bank, Wema Bank, DMT Mobile Toilets, Magic Eye Photography, Nestle Foods, Ben TV, Hi TV, Superscreen and Business Day Newspapers.

The MUSHIN MAKEOVER Project has already received the endorsement of the Lagos State Governor, His Excellency, Babatunde Fashola, who described the initiative as “a most welcome development”. The First Lady of the State, Mrs. Abimbola Fashola will also be flagging off the event on Saturday, as she puts brush on the first building to be painted.

The project has also enjoyed tremendous support from the entertainment industry, with celebrities like Alibaba, Stella Damascus, Tee A, Kate Henshaw, Denrele Edun, Teju Babyface, DJ Jimmy Jatt, DJ Gosporella amongst others coming out to endorse the project openly at a well attended Celebrity Endorsement/World Press Conference held recently.

The Mushin Makeover holds on Saturday December 12 on seven streets in Mushin Local Government namely; Agege Motor Road, Ogunmokun Road, Palm Avenue, Olateju Road, Olanibi/Ojekunle Street, Ladipo Street and Isolo Road. Houses will be painted simultaneously on these streets over a period of eight hours NON-STOP!

    Niceeeeeee. Good job.. Our governments cannot do anything so we citizens take things into our hands. This might be the only way Nigeria can move forward. Please lets keep pushing that light business.

    All the same, I hope the event was a huge success (I’m pretty sure it was) and this can only mark the beginning of bigger things for Mr. Durotoye and all concerned. It takes a remarkable person and willing supporters to trigger this initiative.

    Oh boy,lol,Kate Henshaw’s calabar-toned message was pretty cool even refering to her role in Candlelight. I don’t blame her jere, how many original mushin pips won’t need translators for all the grammatus being said here? Especially when they are the ones that should be mostly represented at the event.

    @Elpee. Our governments cannot do anything? Do you live in Lagos? If you do, then you know that this is not a fair comment and while I agree that there is so much that remains to be done, dismissing the good work of the government cannot be encouraging for the leaders who are actually trying to make a difference. It is our civic duty to push for positive change in our society, good government or bad.

    @ Elpee: so its the responsibility of the government to be painting people’s house?? Why can’t we for once accept our civic responsibility to improve ourselves as a people? Why must everything damn thing be government responsibility? I hope they can replicate this good idea in other parts of the city!
