On Sunday 29 December 2019, all roads lead to the popular Divine Grace Event Centre, Along Alakia Adegbayi Express Road, Nigeria Breweries area of Ibadan, as the Olagunjus hosted family, friends and associates to an elaborate reception. The well-attended party was a 2-in-1 affair, as Pa Theophilus Olagunju celebrated his birthday while at the same time renewed his marital vows to his lovely wife, Madam Abosede Olagunju. It has been wonderful and fruitful 55 years of God’s faithfulness in their lives. So they have every reason to thank God; they are hail and hearty and their children are doing wonderfully well. Pa Olagunju is close to 80 while Mama is 75. At their age, they are still highly romantic, as they laughed, threw banters at each other while they exchanged wedding rings.
The party, apart from the merriment, also availed the children a great opportunity to celebrate their parents while still alive. That of course, for Baba and Mama Olagunju, is the essence of a fulfilled life, seeing their fruits as well as families and friends surrounding them on a special day like this.
That Pa and Ma Olagunju, with the grace of God, have been able to train their children in the way of the Lord is another joyous thing. The love and bond that exists within the family could be felt during the celebration. It evidently showed that the children are well united.
The children, from Mr. Olagunju Adebanji to Mrs. Jumoke Asake Olagunju(Okiki), Mrs. Taiwo Olagunju (Fakomi) and Mr. Sunday Olagunju, all put in their best to make sure the party was successful and that all the invited guests were well taken care of.
Some of those who came to support the family include the Ghana-based celebrity lady and a textile merchant, Yeye Oge FAO; Olori Funmilayo Owolabi Adeleke; Otunba Jimi and Yeye Funmilola Soremekun; Chief (Mrs.) Odewole; Mr. Koladeade-Olufunsho; Chief Ayo-Awe; Pastor Kola; Chief Adegbua Iwoye; Wale Adejoro; Iyaloja Iwoye, Esther Olamijulo; High Chief Aduni Oni, Yeyero; Chief Femi Ekemode, the Loyini of Iwoyeland; Chief Kehinde Dada, Lediofi of Iwoye
The Ogidiolus were also not left out at the party, they came with full force to support the Olagunjus. They were led to the party by Babaoba Rufus Ogidiolu while the likes of Prince Deji Ogidiolu, Prince Gbero Ogidiolu and Prince Niyi Ogidiolu were all part of the powerful delegation.
Not forgetting Mr. Ola Olaosebikan, Mrs. Bukola mele, Alhaja Rashidat Asake, Alhaja Amole, Alhaja Data, Mrs. Anime and many other special guests who are too numerous to be mentioned. They all came out in a good number to celebrate with the Olagunjus and enjoyed every bit of their time at the party.
It was indeed a colourful and glamorous party. The Abeokuta based Highlife/JuJu sensation, Boye Best put up a good show, as he performed excellently well to the amazement of all guests.
