• Joke Konu

Family, friends and well wishers gathered to honour and celebrate the amazing Joke Konu as she turned 60 recently. 

It was a grand celebration. Nothing but a superb display as everything was properly planned to give  her a befitting day.

Konu, like she is fondly called, looked nothing close to 60. Just take a good look at her and see for yourself!
She was absolutely stunning! It was her day, and she looked the part! The Queen of Style! 

As it's usual with celebrants,
Joke changed into three gorgeous attires to the admiration of her guests! 

The first two amazing dresses were made by top renowned fashion designers, Adebayo Jones and Lanre Dasilva. Posh!  

Adabayo Jones was also one of the high-profile guests at the event. 

That evening, she mirrored the incredible presence of music stars like, Diana Ross or Patti Labell. She could be best described as being a graceful beauty, in an amazonian way! 

Part of the high point of the event was when she walked into the venue majestically, rocking an immaculate red dress to the tune of: " I'am coming out, I want the world to know..."

She owned the day and rocked it well! 

Konu is truly loved. Her children and grandchildren were all gathered round her. They showered the most amazing encomiums on her and called her Blessed!  

Many who showed up for the event, came in from across the globe- including her younger brother, Ademola Adegboroye, a former Minister for Transportation under the past administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

As one who once ran one of the most popular African restaurants in south-east London, you can not go to a Joke Konu's party and not be spoilt with the best of African dishes. No stone was left unturned to ensure that guests were well taken care of.  Everyone ate to their fill!  

It was indeed a beautiful night to behold with the lovely colours of Champagne and gold renting the air. 

As the night drew to a close but still filled with fun and laughter; guests  wished the celebrant many happy returns and agreed that it was a party befitting a true Diva!
