When the news of his 40th birthday and his Dad’s 66th birthday broke online, many people were happy and promised they would be at the party. They were excited because Mr Adaralegbe Akintayo Olaoluwa, MD/CEO TPumpy Concepts Limited is a man many can’t wait to celebrate. He’s a complete gentleman, an achiever, and a philanthropist per excellence. A man who has contributed positively to many people’s lives. No wonder Abuja was shut down on the 14th & 15th of July, 2022 for the 2-1 celebration. Many celebrities from all walks of life gathered to give a well-deserved honour to a man who deserves it in all ramifications.
City People Head of TV, SUNDAY ADIGUN was at this event in Abuja for 3days to serve you hot gists.
LET’S START WITH THE COWS & OTHER GIFTS
You need no one to tell you that TPumpy is a great man. How can a man plan to celebrate his birthday and 2 weeks before the event the whole house is filled with cows, camels and horses? TPumpy received over 75 Cows from friends and well-wishers. When you enter where all these cows were kept you will think he has added cow business to his chain of businesses. Just when we thought we’d seen it all we also saw a beautiful horse tied down in front of his house, and he also confirmed to have received Camels and Horses. And what about other numerous gifts? There were lots of them.
3 PRESTIGIOUS HOTELS FOR GUESTS
If you are used to Abuja those that live in Abuja will know that Transcorp Hilton is one of the prestigious hotels in Abuja, so is BON Hotel at Wuse 2 and Chida Hotel. These 3 hotels don’t come cheap and TPumpy booked at least 80% of the rooms in each hotel for his guests who travel from long distances, and it’s not just for one night. Many spent 2 nights while others spent 3.
