It is true that love conquers all, little wonder it tames and conquers the powerful politician and former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori. That James Ibori is in love with Sename Sosu-Ibori is simply stating the obvious. Senami has weathered the storm with James, and why should she not enjoy herself? Most men hardly come by such a woman. Those in the know of the lover birds relationship asserted that Senami Sosu neither denied nor betrayed her heartthrob, James Ibori, in his trying period. The ravishingly beautiful wife stayed true to Ibori while he served out his term in a United Kingdom prison.
It would be recalled that the fair-skinned University of Lagos graduate attained prominence when the embattled former governor of Delta State became an item with her, but she later quit the social arena and vanished into thin air in the wake of her lover’s incarceration. No sooner than Ibori regained his freedom than Senami reappeared in his life and the country’s sociopolitical scene.
Senami elicited infectious bliss and cheerfulness. In recent times, the gorgeous lady has been exhibiting traits of a fashion icon. And with enough money to satisfy her whims, there is, no doubt, that she as a major force has emerged on the fashion block. Despite their travails, the duo is still waxing stronger in love. They were among the guests who graced the final rites of passage of the late billionaire businessman, Capt. Hosa Okunbor, in Benin City, Edo State a few months back and many were happy to see the duo together after all that they have gone through.
No wonder, Chief James Onanefe Ibori played host to the crème of Nigeria social establishment to a lavish soiree in honour of his exquisite wife, Senami Sosu who clocked 40 on Sunday, January 16. The party, held in Ibori’s Ikoyi, Lagos palatial mansion was a classy event that attracted scores of the host’s close friends in the socio-political milieu.

On her birthday, the 63-year old Delta political strongman earlier announced and shared a picture of his Badagry-born ravishingly beautiful wife on his official Instagram page with a caption: “Happy 40th MG”. Not a few expected such a lavish celebration of Senami by her heartthrob.
Recalled that Ibori and Senami were hot items before the former governor ran into troubled waters in 2010. During the difficult time, Senami, rather than turn her back on Ibori, stayed true and weathered the storm with her lover. Even though Senami took what many called a sabbatical leave from the social hub, on his return to Nigeria, Ibori and his lovebird re-emerged on the social scene, scaling up their relationship as they later tied the nuptial knot in 2017.

The couple met in Abuja at a private party and was introduced to each other by one of their common friends known as Tokunbo Enaboifo. Ever since then, their love has been on a roller coaster. Despite that the Ex-Governor had other wives, Sosu became the most cherished and could be tagged his only official wife, owing to the solemnisation of their relationship in 2017. Ex-Gov James Ibori showered love on Senami and took her all around the world for being loyal during his travails.

In April 2011 he was extradited to the UK for trial and was sentenced to 13 years imprisonment on April 12, 2012, by the South warm crown court after pleading guilty to 10 counts charge of money laundering and conspiracy to defraud. Life has since been on a roller coaster for Senami who now enjoys the best of a luxurious life as Gov. Iboris powerhouse. For Ibori who loves to celebrate his woman all the time, the lady who recently clocked 40 had the best of day. Her 40th birthday party was very classy.
The ruby jubilee party was attended by all the shakers and movers within the social sector.
