Still on birthday celebrations, 2 of our notable socialites and style icons clocked very significant ages very recently. The younger of the 2, Mrs. Daisy Danjuma was at a time a Senator of the Federal Republic and she represented Edo State at the National Assembly, her well-known Billionaire Husband, was the former Defence Minister in Nigeria. General Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma(Rtd), was the Chief of Army Staff during the Muritala Mohammed/Olusegun Obasanjo regime(1975 to 1979), he his the Chairman of South Atlantic Petroleum, he is rated by Forbes as one of the richest African's in the world and also as Nigeria's biggest Philanthropist.
His very gorgeous and amiable wife, the extraordinarily stylish Daisy Danjuma, who legend says owns some of the best collection of Diamonds in Nigeria would be 60 years old on August 6, 2012, and we hear that the celebration is upcoming in Marbella, Spain, though a much subdued one than expected, having only close knit family members and friends in attendance. The choice of location for the birthday soiree is because it’s like Daisy's home away from home. Many had expected a lively shindig, but that might still come.
The 2nd person Hajia Abah Folawiyo also needs no introduction, she's the wife another famous billionaire, the Late industrialist and Baba Adinni of Nigeria, Alhaji Chief (Dr.)AbdulWahab Iyanda Folawiyo, who died about 4 years ago. Sisi Abah like many call her was 70 on Sunday, July 22, 2012, Segun Awolowo Junior's mom is one of Nigeria's noted fashion icons, and her fashion brand Labanella Fashion House was the preferred brand amongst the top socialites and celebrities in the 80's & 90's. Instead of the well-loved Abah to throw a big party in celebration of reaching the monumental age (70 years old), she decided to instead reflect rather quietly on God's benevolence, thanking the Almighty God without making too much noise about it.
We would love to say Happy Birthday to the gorgeous ladies, though a belated one to Sisi Abah .
