Billionaire Rasaq Okoya’s earth-shaking 80th birthday party is not something anyone will be forgetting soon.
The event, which held on Saturday 11th of January, without a doubt, passed for the very first grand event of 2020, with top businessmen, governors, ministers, royal fathers and ministers in attendance.
The event commenced in the late hours of Saturday, January 11th into the early hours of the business mogul’s birthday, January 12th, 2019.
We now bring you an exclusive report of how Sade Okoya, the other wives of Chief Rasaq Okoya and their 31 children behaved at the grand occasion, courtesy of Dr Seye Kehinde, Abiola Orisile, Seun Joseph, Jimmy Abdulrasheed and Nuru Akorede.
Just like the Queen of the Okoya’s dynasty that she is, Dr Folasade Noimat Okoya walked in amidst pomp into the venue before her husband. Clad in custard yellow ball dress, she walked from table to table to welcome all the guests at the high table.
In her respectful manner, she knelt down to greet many of the guests who couldn’t help but admire her calm and coordinated nature. Her diamond jewelry was carefully selected to complement her shoes and bags even when she stepped out in her second attire for the day.
She spent all night making sure the event went as planned and was never found wanting when her husband needed her. She was seen at intervals adjusting her husband’s cap making sure he strikes a good pose for the camera. There is no doubt that Aare Rasak Akanni Okoya also loves his wife dearly. He kept looking out for her at intervals too.
