How Olori BUNMI AKINLOYE Celebrated Her 60th Birthday

 •Details Of Her Classy Birthday Party At MONARCH Events Centre


On Sunday 26th June 2022, all roads led to Monarch Event Centre at Ikate Elegushi, along Lekki-Express, in Lekki where Olori Bunmi Taibat Akinloye, the beautiful wife of Oba Tijani Adetunji Akinloye (OON), the Ojomu of Ajiranland, celebrated her 60th birthday in style. It was a classy party that had all the paraphernalia of royalty.

The celebrant is a beautiful Oloori, married to a respected traditional ruler in Lagos State. So it was not a big surprise that a lot of royal fathers turned up to honour Oba Akinloye and his beautiful wife. Oba Saheed Elegushi came with his pretty wife, Oloori Sekinat. Onikate, Oba Adams was also there and a lot of royal fathers from the Lekki axis also came. There were others like Blectar Gbolahan Amure, Odofin of Ajiran, and all the Chiefs in Ajiran.  The venue actually befits the event. The Monarch, owned by the Elegushis accommodated the galaxy of celebrities who came for the event.

The hall was well decorated and the beautiful N180k Gold and Black Swiss Lace aso-Ebi, complete set with gele made the event which was packaged by Tega, her energetic Event Planner, all the more colourful. The men also wore white aso-Ebi. The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akinolu sent some white-capped Chiefs to represent him and his 4 wives also came. The event had 2 high tables, facing each other and a Stage at the centre, which had lovely photos of the celebrant as a backdrop.

On one side of the high table was Kabiyeesi, Oba Akinloye, and all the royal fathers who came to honour him. Opposite it, was another high table where the Chairman of the event, Aare Akanni Rasaq Okoya, the Eleganza Chairman, sat with his lovely wife, Chief Mrs Noimot Folashade Okoya, the Style Icon, who wowed them in her trouser suit aso-Ebi. Chief Okoya sat next to his brother, Alhaji Tajudeen Okoya, who also came with his wife, who sat next to Shade Okoya. Many guests commended Alhaji Okoya for delivering very well-put-together Opening Remarks, which were short and straight to the point. The event was anchored by Tee A. and Yemi Shodimu, both gurus in the business. One of the high points of the party was the cutting of the cake. The cake which was hung in the air, with a chain had to be lowered for the celebrant to cut.

The event had all the trappings that usually make any party good. It had beautiful guests. Good and sumptuous food and exotic drinks flowed, ceaselessly like water. There was also good music, as Ayo Ajekigbe & His Faith Band thrilled guests to no end. For over 7 hours, the 11-man band kept all the women and men, dancing to their variety of music, from Juju to Hip-Hop. All the band boys and their leader had their trademark Abetiaja Cap on. The celebrant looked very stunning on her day, as she stole the show at her own party. All eyes were on her, as she shone like a million stars. She changed twice and went round to thank all her guests.

Midway into the event, she launched her Oloori Bunmi Akinloye Foundation. Chief Rasak Okoya performed the launch. What made the party all the more colourful and beautiful was the bevvy of beautiful women who all looked elegantly attired, in their Gold and Black aso-Ebi. Many of them made style statements with their outfits. Chief Mrs Shade Okoya stood out and her set of jewellery spoke volumes. Lagos businesswoman, Chief Mrs Sade Adesoye looked sweet in her outfit, with her skin like milk radiating. She made statements with her Jewelry. Don’t forget she sells Jewelry.

One group which added colour to the event were members of the Ojomu Youth Forum led by Alhaji Tajudeen Ahmed Akanbi, Chairman, Hamtajak Group of Companies and Hon. Wasiu Akinshemeyin, the Secretary. Members, who were many, all came out to dance with the celebrant and it was Naira rain all the way, as they sprayed the celebrant with wads of sparkling naira notes.
