For Lagos elites like the industrialist, Chief Rasaq Akanni Okoya, luxurious parties are their Eden. Chief Rasaq Akanni Okoya’s wife, Folasade ‘Sade’ Noimat, knows this well and threw a lavish party to celebrate her sweetheart’s 80th birthday.
Though, Oloye Rasaq Okoya clocked 80 on Sunday, January 12, 2020, the birthday party held on the evening of Saturday, January 11, at the billionaire’s estate in Ajah, Lagos. Amongst many other guests, his wife invited his old time foreign friends, staff and business partners from Las Vegas and Frankfurt to honour him on his 80th birthday at their Nigerian home.
The Nigerian business tycoon and chairman of Eleganza industries, who didn’t know what was going on, was elated and very happy to see the men who had been of service to him and his family for decades when in America and Europe.
Many high class Lagosians and socialites including Otunba Subomi Balogun, Sir Olu Okeowo, Billionaire Sam Adedoyin, Ex Lagos State Governors, Akinwunmi Ambode and Asiwaju Tinubu and former president Olusegun Obasanjo flocked Okoya’s home to celebrate with him, feast and listen to live music by the Juju legend trio; Ebenezer Obey, King Sunny Ade and Sir Shina Peters; KWAM 1 De Ultimate, Davido and many more.
Rocking their sparkling white aso ebis, befitting of an owambe as grand as this, celebrities and influencers including Toke Makinwa Toyin Lawani, Ozinna Anumudu and Emelia Jane Adenuga were also in attendance. Okoya’s birthday celebration was indeed the place to be last Saturday!
Prior to Rasaq Okoya’s birthday party, the beautiful Folashade sent out three assorted invitation cards to their closest friends and associates notifying them of the party to usher her hubby into the landmark age. The glamorous invitation was rumoured to contain an access card, meal card and another for the collection of souvenirs.
