Abeokuta went agog on the night of Friday 4th May 2018, when Alhaji Moruf Olawole Sorunke, popularly called MC Murphy, now known as King G. hosted City People Publisher, Seye Kehinde at his Nite Club.
MC Murphy is the Czar of Entertainment in the Ogun capital city. That night, MC Murphy hosted City People Publisher, to a grand reception in honour of his recent birthday. MC Murphy is the owner of Murphys Place, a Restaurant, Bar, Lounge and Nite club. It was a night of undiluted fun, as MC Murphy presented S.K. with a Special Recognition Award for his time-tested Humility. Murphys Place, located beside Bayah Filling Station, Ita-Oshin, Abeokuta was filled to the brim with so many celebrities who came in from Abeokuta & Lagos.
One of the leading guber aspirants in Ogun State, GNI was the Special Guest of Honour. He sat all through the party which began at about midnight and went into the night. He, it was who presented the lovely award to SK. Popular US promoter, Demola Oyefeso was around for the event.
Abeokuta construction giant and socialite, Chief Afolabi Sodunke also attended the party and he sat till the early hours of the morning. The MD of KATAWA Properties was also present. One after the other several young artistes thrilled guests. What spiced up the event was the masterly handling of the flow of events by Yemi Sonde, former FIBAN President and ace Broadcaster. He did a good job.
The Chief Host of the event Alhaji Morufu Sorunke made sure everyone had a nice time. Alhaji Sefiu Alao, (Omo Oko )made a grand entry. He looked yuppie in his body-hugging T-Shirt and face cap. He thrilled guests with a special Acapela.
According to MC Murphy, the idea behind the party was to celebrate those whom honour is due to. “Dr. Seye Kehinde has really supported a lot of people who have become big factors in the country today. And I feel someone should have come up with this kind of idea long before now. The reason being that despite all Dr. Seye Kehinde has done with his craft to support other people, he is still extremely humble with it. In fact, he is humble to a fault, so to speak. The humility is exemplary. That is one virtue that is missing in a lot of successful people. By all standards, Dr. Seye Kehinde is one of the most successful journalists this country has seen and at his status, if he wants to be arrogant or unapproachable; he has all the rights to do that. But the Dr. Seye Kehinde I know has never been arrogant for a second. He is quiet, easy going, accessible and helpful. So, what more can you ask for in a successful man. So, he deserves what Murphy’s Place did to celebrate him. So, Murphy’s Place hosted Dr. Seye Kehinde to a night of undiluted fun where he was presented with a Special Recognition Award for his Time-Tested Humility and the event was surely the first of its kind.
Can he remember his first encounter with Dr. Seye Kehinde?
“Well, let me start by saying that the first time I met Dr. Seye Kehinde, he told me that MC Murphy, you are the only one I listen to on radio and that was over ten years ago in Lagos. And he was extremely humble on that day which really caught my attention. It was at an event and he was not even sitting down even when he was offered a seats, he let other people sat instead. Dr. Seye Kehinde is just too much with his humility”.
Has he ever met any other person more humble than him?
“No. Dr. Seye Kehinde is the only person that I know who always pipe low. Most others fluctuate. They may seem humble this time and the next time they are obscenely arrogant. I know a lot of magazine publishers who are not even as successful but think they are tin gods. I don’t want to mention names. We are setting a standard by giving Dr. Seye Kehinde Humility Award. And I know a lot still celebrate him afterwards on the same virtue. But it would be on record that MC Murphy did it first”.
