Okowa

“Insecure people put others down to raise themselves up.”

Parties have always been as a testament to a celebration.

In the Lagos social scenes, the richer the celebrant, the more colourful the party automatically becomes.

A man of immense wealth, Tinubu will not be celebrating his new age with friends, family, and associates as has become the norm. There won’t be a colloquium of any sort.
