Flamboyance, panache, flair, style, class, royalty and unrivaled ambience of serenity were some attributes that could best describe the grandeur atmosphere of the Fola Osibo, Lekki Phase 1 venue, when popular socialite and politician Rotimi Ajanaku played host to news makers in the country’s social circle to celebrate 40th birthday.
The corporate all-suit gig was initially planned to be a small hangout with friends, but the influence of the Ibadan born politician in the social scene swayed many who heard about it to attend.
As the day wound down and the tone set for sumptuous memorial dinner, the Lekki home of the top socialite was gradually filled with obvious friends and well wishers of Ajanaku who all kitted in polished and expensive suit labels.
But little did the guests know that two governors of two south western states of Nigeria would also be part of merry. They are Governors Ajimobi of Oyo State and Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State.
The presence of Gov. Ajimobi signaled Rotimi Ajanaku’s status in his homeland, Ibadan, while Gov. Fayose, apart from being a die hard fan of the birthday boy, is also a roving socialite who enjoys life to the fullest.
Their presence added color to the domineering black and white color of the day.
Also, his bosom friend, Dare Santana made sure that there was no hitch at the party, as he played the role so well.
It was an overwhelming gathering of cream de la cream of the society like Quilox Boss Shina Pella, Governor Ajimobi of Oyo state, Governor Ayodele Fayose, who were treated to sumptuous meals and assorted drinks.
