Penultimate Sunday would go down in history as a memorable day in the lives of Alhaja Adetoun Kudirat Raji (aka Mama Lekan) and that of her entire household. That was the day the who-is-who in the entire Lagos social and business circuit converged on The Balmoral Event Centre in Lagos , to honour her on her 50th birthday. Before the Sunday event, an Ismalic prayer session had earlier held in her family home in Gbagada area of Lagos . At the prayer session were top clerics from the Lagos Island branch of NASFAT, family members like her husband, Alhaji Raji, Prince Ade Adetela, the celebrant’s children and others. But at the main society party which took place on Sunday July 20, 2008, virtually everybody who is somebody in the society was there. Montai, Sade Alesh, Kudi Ayoola, Ibrahim Borokini and so many others in fact the list is endless. On the bandstand were King Sunny Ade (KSA) and his band. And as expected, everyone had more than enough to eat and drink as KSA treated guests to several of his famous tunes. Apart from some minor skirmishes however, the party very grand and lavish and many who attended it will not forget the memories quickly.
