Rolling out the drums for a celebration is synonymous with people who love the good things of life.
In Lagos State, ask of a man who loves to enjoy himself and the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu would likely be mentioned.
Hardly does a memorable event passes the man by without a colourful celebration.
However, he changed the status quo when he turned 75th years old on Monday, October 29.
Those who had expected a carnival-like celebration synonymous with the man were surprised to learn about his decision to opt for a very low-key affair.
What informed his decision to deviate from the status quo is still being questioned.
