As expected, it was colourful, fun and classy with many top personalities and celebrities in attendance. The 40th birthday party of the gorgeous wife of the billionaire industrialist, Aare Razak Akanni Okoya, Chief (Dr.) Mrs Folashade Noimat Okoya was held at the hall inside the expansive estate of the founder of Eleganza Group of Companies, known as the Oluwa-ni-Shola (God does wealth) Estate. From the look of things, no stone was left unturned in the hosting of a superb and classy shindig.
The dress code was unequivocal as all the guests came in their best. The ladies were gorgeous too all in the bid to felicitate with the celebrant and her family in a beautiful and convivial atmosphere. The birthday cake was gigantic, the type one might have mistaken for a wedding cake and the gathering, a wedding feast.
