Life they say begins at 40, which might be the reason most people celebrate their clocking the age, with a lot of fanfare & when they can afford it, with class, panache and plenty of camaraderie. A trend seems to have started with the well-heeled and it’s what is called destination event, weddings, birthdays are taken to any of the exotic places, away from the prying eyes of the local media, recently when Esosa Anenih, Tony Anenih Jnr's wife hit the big 40 she and her friends flew to Spain to celebrate, Another upcoming birthday celebration is that of Tolu Akinrele who is hitting the big 40 too soon, and her birthday party is set for August 7,2011, though we hear the birthday itself is on August 8, the celebration cum party would spiral into the morning of the birth date and the location is good ole England and venue is The Dorchester, Park lane, Mayfair, London, where Femi Fowora also had is 40th birthday party recently and where Dr Ajayi had his daughter's wedding ceremony, we hear the venue, can comfortably accommodate 500 guests, and the services rendered 1st class, while the ambiance is 5 stars, costing an average of Twenty thousand Pounds (20,000 including VAT). We hear just 300 of the friends of the family & family members would be in attendance, but we also heard it is a double pronged event as the husband's birthday is going to be celebrated too; the ever young looking SAN is celebrating his 50th.
