Sen. Victor Kassim Oyofo is a notable lawmaker representing the people of Edo State in the upper chamber of the National Assembly in Abuja. Recently his wife of 28 years, MRS OYINKANSOLA OYOFO attained the golden age of 50. And as expected, the family rolled out the drums to celebrate the woman who means so much to them..the party took place at THE CIVIC CENTRE on Ozumba Mbadiwe Street, Victoria Island, Lagos..Below are some of the faces at the event as captured by SOLA FOLOWOSELE.

Her event planning outfit, ELIZABETH R is one of the most sought-after event planners in Nigeria especially when it comes to high society occasions like this.Before her voyage into events planning, she had earlier reigned as Miss Lux Queen about a decade ago. Now married to suave RCCG Pastor ITUA IGHODALO, Ibidun is no doubt an entrepreneur to watch out for..THIS DECORATION WAS DONE BY MRS AKIN ARIYO'S OUTFIT, "OPEN HANDS LTD"..Ibidun's ELIZABETH R did the coordination.

Odio is the daughter of the celebrant, she runs a flourishing fashion designing outfit on the Island called ODIO MIMONET..Happily married to big boy FOLABI OSENI, ODIO is a massively gifted designer. Her high sense of creativity came to the fore again during the event as her mother looked gorgeous and stunning in two of ODIO MIMONET'S designs.

Too much make-up on Lanre Da-Silva's face. Haba, kilode. How do some women cope with so much make-up in that Lagos heat?

Mrs Oyofo is not the mother of Odion. She is her step-mom. I mean do the maths. If they have been married 28 years and she is 50 years old, could she really have given birth to Odion and her older ones?

She is a nice, simple woman though. She deserves good things.

@anon April 22, 2009-2:12am--thanks for this piece of fresh informaton..i will certainly work on it to get further info..But if this is true, then we need to give it to the Oyofos for the seeming cohesion among them..i mean it is somehow difficult to notice any difference among them, at least in the public..once again, thanks.

What a sick comment re:'seeming cohesion'. Why is it only in Naija that people assume that step children and step parents do not grt along and when they do, they must be pretending? it is called maturity!!!!!!
