â€œThe biggest risk in life is not to risk at all,â€ Peter Kimbowa, Financial consultant charged the women at the second MTN Yâ€™ellorose garden tea party at Sheraton Hotel on Saturday evening.
The garden was coloured with the mostly yellow, pink and white feminine colours that the ladies were wearing. The theme of the evening was Financial Resilience, which Kimbowa expounded on and also answered womenâ€™s questions.
This time around, the women were more hyper and energetic than the last time, where they were mostly laid back. Joanita Kawalya excited the Roses (and the five thorns that always find their way into the Yâ€™ellorose party), especially Susan Muhwezi, with her songs Susan and Jim. Then came Halima with her Sambagala, exciting the women even further and getting them to their feet. Blu3 also performed and gave out a free CD to the woman, who could sing their Kanchachanche best. The women got more and more hyped up as the party came closer to the end. By the time of its ending, most of them were on their feet, dancing to Joanitaâ€™s Tony and begging for more. It took Candy Okoboi, the MC of the day, a little more effort to get the ladies to go home.
Yâ€™ello Rose is a brainchild of MTNâ€™s marketing Manager, Rita Okuthe launched last month to empower women to blossom. The Yâ€™elloroses will be meeting every month.
