Adetutu Ayeni, the adorable wife of Chairman/CEO of Skymit Motors and unassuming businessman, Tayo Ayeni, hit the BIG 50! And the family rolled out the drums to mark it with pomp and pageantry.
As a God-fearing pair, the day naturally began in the presence of the Lord as the celebrant, her darling husband, family and friends gathered at the Church of Nativity, Parkview, Ikoyi. In fact, the celebrator told us exclusively that the thanksgiving service was the most important aspect of the celebration because she had every cause to thank God for her life.
The service was conducted byVenerable Tayo Aduloju, who, in his sermon, praised Mrs. Ayeni for her commitment to God’s work. With wondrous hymns and choruses the service was enlivened, while later, there was a session of prayers for the good health and well being of the golden lady.
Later, guests were hosted to a sumptuous reception at the Harbor Point, Victoria Island, where food and drinks were aplenty just as Shuga Band and King Sunny Ade were on hand to provide high quality entertainment.
