BN Exclusive: Nigerian Music Star Kefee branches out – Launches “Branama Kitchen” on her Birthday – Photos from the Event




Kefee‘s career has grown from strength to strength over the last few years. After her successful North American tour in 2011 and a slew of recent hits including “Eguono” and “Sapele Water”, the music star has diversified her portfolio by opening her very own restaurant! Kefee’s restaurant is called “Branama Kitchen“.

Branama Kitchen serves a mix of Nigerian and international dishes and is located in Mende, Maryland. The launch event took place on Kefee’s birthday – 5th February 2012 and as expected, a long list of celebrities including Kel, Gordons, Lami, Susan Peters, Uti Nwachukwu and Helen Paul were there to enjoy the taste dishes and felicitate with their friend.

The host Kefee looks beautiful in her floor-length purple dress with a bejeweled neckline and topped off with her signature curly mane.

      Abi o! Nothing about the restaurant itself, dishes served, contact numbers…only an address. Mschew. The pictures of the surroundings aren’t helping either.

    Nigerians and criticizing…….Even though I can’t see much about the restaurant, I’ll have to commend Kefee for this one, great to see young people invest rather than spend their money shopping trying to impress and oppress others by putting on expensive clothes, and letting everyone know their prices.
