Last Sunday, 15th August 2021Ibadan was agog with a big party that literally shut down the entire city. Practically all the socialites in town converged on Jogor Event Centre (Hall of Grace) along Liberty Road, in Ibadan, as Mojisola Funke Akinkunmi Olalekan held their wedding party.

It was the party to be at that day, as a lot of London & US celebrities stormed Ibadan to honour the couple. One of the reasons the wedding party was grand was because of the Groom’s sister, Banke Adetoro, the London based celebrity fabric merchant on Liverpool Street in LondonBanke & her husband, Akeem are big, both in London & Ibadan. Both are from Ibadan. Both are socialites. Both have a way of lightening up parties, both in London and Ibadan. So, the couple brought the whole of London celebrities to Ibadan. No wonder why all the major hotels in Ibadan were fully booked, as about 300 London & U.S celerity ladies stormed Ibadan and they all stayed the night.

No wonder also why the 3,000 capacity hall was fully occupied with both local and international celebrities. Many came from far and near.

It was also a fashion event, as 350 celebrity women came stylishly dressed in the different aso ebi, chosen for the party. There was a general Aso ebiAso Ijo and a beautiful fabric worn by friends of Banke, who came in from London & U.S. The London U.S celebrity women stood out, looking really beautiful. Akeem & Banke Adetoro also looked beautiful in their outfits. Banke looked gorgeous in her designer  dress and Akeem looked dapper in his blue Agbada, cap and designer shoes. She & her husband are fashionistas.

It was a roll call of VVIPs as SenatorsHouse of Reps membersOyo State politicians and even Lagos celebrities gathered at Jogor to honour Akeem & BankeIyaloja GeneralYeye Sade Tinubu was there and she danced so well at  her table.

Music was by K1 who has now become the busiest musician in Nigeria today. He now plays Back-to-Back. For 7 days last week, K1 performed everyday from Lagos to Ijebu to Ibadan. He was at his best at the party as he kept all the society ladies on their feet all through the 7 hour party that went on till late.

All the Big boys were in attendance also. So also all the Ibadan celebrity women.
