It was celebration galore
last week Saturday, April 18
when Seun Olagunju, a trailblazer
in the broadcasting
industry rolled out the drums
to celebrate her 40th birthday.
Held at M&M event Centre,
beside Jimoh Ibrahim’s Nicon
Luxury Hotel Abuja, the ball
was most splendid as notable
women and men from far and
wide thronged into the venue to
celebrate the woman of virtue.
In attendance were Chief Mrs.
Titi Atiku, the courteous wife of
former Vice President, Atiku
Abubakar, Senator Folashade
Bent, Mrs. Biodun Yuguda,
First Lady Bauchi State, Mrs.
Funke Kila and Mrs. Tunde
Akogun. As for the male folks,
those present were the Minister
of Aviation, Osita Chidoka,
Boboye Oyeyemi, the amiable
Corps Marshal of FRSC, DG
of NAFDAC, Paul Orhi, DG
NTA, Sola Omole and wife,
prominent actor Dele Odule
who is a very close friend of Dr.
Kayode Olagunju, the husband
to the celebrant amongst other
top dignitaries.
Apart from the intimidating
number of celebrities who
graced the event, what made the
birthday shindig thick, was the
solid arrangement put together
by the Olagunjus to record
a magnificent event. From
intercontinental dishes to local
munchies, the party was filled
to the brim with victuals; wines,
champagnes and beverages of
all sorts. An icing on the cake
to the groove was a sterling live
music performance by Tungba
crooner, Yinka Ayefelu who
kept the hall bubbling with his
persuasive brand of music.
But before then, the birthday
bash had kicked off on April
5, 2015 when Seun originally
clocked 40th. Though we do
not know the reason why Seun
shifted the celebration, what
is impressive in her birthday
celebration is her magnanimity
towards the less privileged in
our society.
On April 5th, the highly
cerebral woman celebrated her
day with the less privileged
kids at Mother Theresa
Children’s Home in Abuja with
all joy.
