Shade Okoya’s heart-thumping 40th birthday soiree soothes high society

Folashade Noimot Okoya, the tall and ravishingly gorgeous wife of billionaire mogul behind Eleganza Group of Companies (Alhaji Rasaki Akanni Okoya), treated high society to a heart-thumping 40th birthday soiree on Sunday, April 30, 2017, at Oluwanisola Estate, Ajah (on Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos).

The elegantly packaged event with black tie and dinner dress code was as colourful as it was exciting.

Kicking off in the evening, the gig was enlivened as the birthday gal joined guests and family in the gloriously decorated hall. She was a picture of sophistication and allure in a beautiful bare-shoulder gown (she later changed to an equally breathtaking number).

She was accompanied by her husband and her four children – Olamide, Subomi, Oyinlola and Wahab – to a loud applause as they danced in. The men adorned navy blue three piece suits, and the ladies in off white short gowns.

The party kicked off with many highlights to the delight of the mesmerised guests who included Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Chief (Mrs.) Onikepo Akande, Otunba Adekunle Ojora and Erelu Ojuolape, Otunba Gbenga Daniel and his wife, Prince Samuel Adedoyin and wife, Oba Adedapo Tejuoso and his three wives, Justice Olusola Oguntade (rtd) and his wife, Sir Olu Okeowo and wife, Mr  Lanre Ogunlesi, Senator Florence Ita Giwa, Sisi Abah Folawiyo, Olari Wuraolu Ogunwusi, Speaker Mudashiru Obasa,  Erelu Abiola Dosunmu…

The dexterous Demola Olota led the merry making in the music department, with Olamide thrilling all to his street raps and melodies later.

Guests let their hairs down, wriggling and jiggling for hours…
