Hey everyone! So as many of you may know, 21st January was my 25th birthday, but as I was in Ethiopia I had to wait till I got back to have my little celebration! I haven’t had a major birthday celebration since my 16th, so I thought why not?
The celebration took place in the uber classy restaurant of G-Pinnacle Restaurant in Ilorin, I’ve got to take a moment to recommend this venue for your events if you have one in Ilorin, it is beautiful and the service is top notch, they didn’t get any orders wrong and regularly called to make confirmations about the plans – the whole process was really smooth and simple.
G-Pinnacle & Suites
The ceremony started with prayers and then we shared memories about how each person met me among others – Tolu still had a photo of my cast from when I broke my knee in 300 level which cracked everyone up Lool.
Modupe Ojelabi taking the prayers very seriously (as she should)
When Tolu had just shown me the photo of my leg cast 😂
Shout out to Naphy’s Connect for the delicious cake!<
ext, the catfish pepper soup starters began getting served, buffet style and Dammieelle, our lovely host, began the games segment – charades! There were hilarious moments but I think Tolu trying to mime “Twilight” by demonstrating fangs and hugging himself – and Bidemi somehow guessing it correctly and then Grace doing “Lord of the Rings” by pointing at one of her rings but everyone was guessing things like “The Wedding Ringer” “The Proposal” till Modupe shouted the answer at the last second and everyone in her team screamed were definitely the highlights of that segment!

>Grace’s idea of a clue for “Lord of the Rings”
Modupe opened the “how much do you know about Elizabeth?” segment and the group agreed to not allow anyone on the table I was on to answer the questions – but Toyosi was armed with all the answers from her seat across the room lool.

he main meal was then served buffet style and DJ Sammie set us up with nice music to keep the happy vibes going, then we played musical chairs and Isoken won against all odds miraculously haha.

Dessert of fruit slices were served and the cake was cut to reveal the delicious triple delight cake: Vanilla, Red Velvet and Chocolate flavor. Then we had the closing prayer and of course the dance dance dance segment!
My amazing guests stuck to the all white theme and made me so happy! Check out more photos of these beautiful people below:
