At 50, Fabulous and Blessed, you celebrate like the Odubelas did last Friday in Lekki

When Chief Mrs. Olubimpe Odubela turned 50 last week Friday, she celebrated with a classy birthday bash, that will never be forgotten in a hurry!

Didn’t they say that 50 only come but once?
So, the Odubelas ensured that the event was fun and unique. At their choice home in the rich enclave of NICON Estate in highbrow Lekki, Lagos, the party was simply for family and friends.
The early shower of rain that day was naturally, to bless the day. The Odubelas celebrated in the open air outside their posh home under flower festooned white canopies which complimented the Odubelas’ luxury home furnishings that guests sat on at the party. 

And guess what, no single drop of rain disturbed the party throughout the evening and night.

Glittering chandeliers brightened the interior of the home as everything that makes a party grand, awaited guest upon arrival.

There was a conspicuous bar at the lawn of the big house to welcome the guests to the party. It was fitted with a range of wine and spirit to drown any heavy drinker. 

But the Odubela’s guests responsibly sipped a glass of champagne or any of their chosen drink, as they made their way into the main party space by the side of the huge building.

Every item spoke well of the taste of the Odubela couple Chief John Olusegun Odubela and Chief Mrs. Olubimpe Abike Odubela. From the choice cars of their guests that was parked all over the close, right up to the major road in the estate, to the banters and deep laughter that spoke much of the status of the guests, a stranger didn’t need to be convinced that the Odubelas’ are high class!

He, a legal practitioner who has just bagged a high legal status of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and his wife the birthday gal, a top fashion designer of high repute.

The Odubela’s party was not just about coming to sit and eat, though there were choice foods, fruits and drinks and these were in abundance, to the extent that the fully clad waiters and waitresses repeatedly asked guests to have a taste of the different food delicacies available at the party.

Chief Mrs. Olubimpe Odubela's birthday bash was about dance and fun!

A 'White Colour Party' where guests turned out in different designs and shades of white, with only the
celebrant in yellow flowery styled lace dress. The music was 60% Old Skool and 40% new dance hall music flavours. And the biggies , the slim-fits danced to great delight.

The celebrant was in-doors when the party started at 4pm Friday evening. But she danced into the party as the party tempo increased. Despite being a work day, guests were prompt!

However, throughout the evening and into the night, guests left at intervals, while others arrived also. There was a steady flow of human traffic in and out of the party that never stopped! Like ‘Oja Oyingbo’ no one missed the other! The party jumped and bubbled on…

At Chief Mrs. Olubimpe Odubela’s 50th birthday bash, the fresh looking, healthy ladies, danced  like they were 16 years old once again and sang to the old, good, groovy tunes of the 80s and 90s. And the men who were mostly top government officials, captains of industry, business people, were not left out in the fun dance.

At Chief Mrs. Olubimpe Odubela’s 50th birthday bash, the spiced meat, barbecue, was like never before! It was tasty, well prepared and fresh. The birthday gal came in with beautiful dance steps and stopped at each table to greet guests. Wherever she stopped to greet, she danced with the guests in that circle.

And when it was time to cut the birthday cake, night had come. But those who were around were not tired. 

While some of the guests live in Lekki, Victoria Island and Ikoyi vicinity, others came from as far as Abuja, Kaduna, Kano, Portharcourt and outside the country.

And guests from Abeokuta the capital city of Ogun state were not left out. That’s because the celebrant’s husband Chief John Odubela, had served as a state commissioner in recent times in a cabinet constituted by the present state governor of Ogun state Senator Ibikunle Amosun.

So, there was much love from Ogun state as past and present government officials of the state stopped by at the party. 

Among them was the present Secretary to the State Government Mr. Taiwo Adeoluwa, the present Commissioner for Commerce, Industry Trade and Investment, Mr. Bimbo Ashiru, the secretary to Edo state government Barrister Osarodion Ogie, Ogun state honourable commissioner for urban and physical planning Mrs Ronke Sokefun, Sina Sofola (SAN), Kemi Pinheiro (SAN), Honourable Justice Abdullahi Mustapha OFR Former Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Mr. Wole Iyamu Solicitor General and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Justice, Edo state. 

Tunde Sodade MD of Lagos  Free Trade Zone was there, and so also was Mr Segun Adesanya the special Adviser to Ogun State Governor on Youth and Sports, Honourable Rotimi Akinsanya, Executive Chairman, Ikenne local government, Hon Chris Okaeben Member Edo state House of Assembly, Hon Seyi Odumuyiwa, Executive Chairman Remo Central local government, Ogun state Honourable Commissioner for Culture and Tourism Barrister Muyiwa Oladipo who was there with his wife Mrs Olufunke Oladipo, Bamofin A.J. Owonikoko was also there with his wife.

Others were Elder and Mrs. Omoruyi Iyamu, Evangelist and Mrs. Chris Ogbonaya. Public Relations guru Mr. Adetokunbo Modupe who is also the Chief Executive Officer of TPT International was also there. And many others.
