Chief Rasaq Okoya’s Elegant 82nd Garden Birthday Party
Friends and family recently gathered at the residence of Chief Rasaq Akanni Okoya, to commemorate his 82nd birthday. Organized by his wife, Dr. Sade Okoya, the event hosted the upper echelon of Lagos which included royals, to a simple but elegant outdoor gathering.
The evening started with prayers at the mosque, after which his guests were ushered to the garden, where the ever-gracious celebrant personally welcomed each one of them as they arrived. Friends including Bisi Olatilo, Florence Ita Giwa, and Kensington Adebutu paid tribute to the man of the evening, each speaking of how much of a gentle and kind man he is. The celebrant later cut his cake as the guests made merry.
