How Sweet Sensation Founder,Lady Kehinde Kamson Celebrated her 60th birthday


August 2021 was indeed a beautiful month and a time to rejoice in the Lord’s marvellous mercies, as Lady Kehinde Kamson celebrated her 60th birthday! 


Lady Kehinde Kamson was indeed grateful for the mercies of God upon her life and used this opportunity to thank the Almighty Father for health, peace and joy.


Celebrations began on Saturday,  14th of August 2021, with an intimate family thanksgiving  held at the family chapel and attended by the immediate family and clergymen and pastors from the Methodist Church of Tinubu and Redeemed Chirstian Church of God.  This occasion was an opportunity for family to express their heartfelt thanksgiving and worship to God Almighty.    Lady Kehinde Kamson and her loving twin brother;  Mr. Taiwo Adelaja,  used this opportunity to celebrate together.   


Celebrations continued on Sunday, 15th of August 2021 with a largely virtual zoom celebration where over 400 family, colleagues, friends, associates, business partners and loved ones gathered over Zoom to celebrate with Lady Kehinde Kamson and her family.   The joy of the family radiated throughout the day; starting with her amiable husband, Sir Olayinka Kamson and radiating throughout the children and grandchildren.  

   In lieu of gifts, Lady Kehinde Kamson requested support of one or both of her humanitarian efforts SSES (Sweet Sensation Educational Support) or SS FOSI (Sweet Sensation Food Security Intervention)  that impact the lives of others.

  Following the virtual zoom celebration, a few close family and friends gathered in the family home to continue the celebrations. 

  Guests were limited in number due to COVID 19 and social distancing guidelines. 


It was truly a colorful and befitting time to honor a woman of substance in the Nigerian social, economic and industrial sphere.   All Glory to God.

Over the past 20 years of Sweet Sensation’s existence, Lady K as she is fondly called, has directed both personal and business CSR resources at supporting individuals and organizations across Nigeria with the intention of helping them cross financial, material, and intellectual barriers. Her core area of interest has particularly been children and children related institutions especially schools and those that serve challenged children. This prompted the Sweet Sensation Education Support Scheme (S.S.E.S) which has served thousands of children in Lagos and beyond.

Kehinde loves reading, music and gardening.  She is a strong believer in the fact that learning and personal development should be lifelong and that it is best to acquire knowledge, gather insights  and obtain illumination, earlier in life than later, although, lifes lessons can be taught and learnt at any stage of life's journeys.

She is married to Sir Olayinka Kamson, (KJW) and is a proud mother of five children and five grandchildren
