A good life, filled with health and wealth is what every human crave for, hitting the golden jubilee milestone, is a reason to roll out drums and trumpets in a celebratory mood. For this reason, the highbrow area of Nicon Estate Lekki, felt the celebration as Segun Odubela, a former Ogun state commissioner for Education, threw a lavish Golden Jubilee birthday soiree for his delectable wife. He hosted the creme de la creme of societies, comprising of politicians, captains of Industries, families, friends and well wishers of the celebrant Mrs Olubimpe Abike Odubela.
Barrister Segun Odubela spared no expense, to ensure his wife’s 50th birthday celebration, was an exquisite affair, as the party refreshments was an endless array of both local and intercontinental dishes accompanied by a variety of liquors and wines such as champagne, tequila, vodka, cognac, red and white wines. Lets not even talk about the mouth watering array of scrumptious desserts.
The celebrant dazzled her guests in her gold coloured flowing evening dress and an endearing smile, while she played the part of the courteous hostess. The party was further given a life of its own, as she showed off her amazing dance skills, soon after she cut her gigantic birthday cake, surrounded by her husband, children and friends.
In her words, “I want to thank God for this day. Special thanks to My husband, Children and friends for making today a reality. I pray for Almighty God to make me grow older with my husband and children in good health and wealth”.
The Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun was represented by his Secretary to the State Government [SSG] Barrister Taiwo Adeoluwa and some other political dignitaries were spotted.
Happenings gathered that; Mrs Odubela’s birthday was originally on the 27th of April, however she flew to London with her family, for a quiet celebration and the party at NICON estate was the Nigerian version of her birthday party.
