Flamboyance, panache, flair, style, class, royalty and unrivaled ambience of serenity were some attributes that could best describe the grandeur atmosphere at the Radisson Blu Hotel on Ozumba Mbadiwe, Victoria Island Lagos venue, when popular socialite and successful Business man Akeem Oladele played host to news makers in the country’s social circle to celebrate his 40th birthday.
The corporate all-suit gig was initially planned to be a small hangout with friends, but the influence of the former banker turned business man in the social scene swayed many who heard about it to attend.
As the day wound down and the tone set for sumptuous memorial dinner, the venue of the top socialite was gradually filled with obvious friends and well wishers of Koko as he is fondly addressed in the social scene.
The very uninterupted music was supplied by our very talented disk jokky DJ Humility who did what he knows how to do best and it was never a dull moment. The guests were all kitted in polished and expensive suit labels. But little did the guests know that many other social crawlers would be in attendance.
A very high point of the event was when one of the guests at the high octane shindig proposed to his sweetheart. Olaitan Fashola created another buzz when it was announced that there is another dimension to the event and he promptly knelt down before his fiancee who attended the event with him, and the proposal was magical as the guests all cheer them up and clicked the camera.
Akeem Oladele was born on 29th july 1977 at okesuna shomolu, he got married to a super model, Jesutomiloba Victoria Oladele who is the mother of his kids.
A very well successful business man who was formerly in the banking sector with over 14 years of practice before venturing into diverse businesses. He is today the MD/CEO Oladele Golden Autos, Organic Bureau de Change, and Lamardan Global Resources Limited with interests in Oil and Gas.
Their presence added color to the domineering black and white color of the day. Also, his bosom brother, Gbenga Oladele an engineer of high repute made sure that there was no hitch at the party, as he played the role so well.
It was an overwhelming gathering of cream de la cream of the society like Faruk Ibrahim, Abbey Atilola, Gbenga Oladele MD Bukums Ventures, Gbadebo Oyeyi Chairman Of Debosco Motors, Bisi Olaniyan of Farm House Hotels, Femi Alade, Senator Adeyemi of Osun State, Ayo Somorin, Proprietor Monica School, Sudan Falawe who came in from the United State to perform at the event, Mr Odunayo of Onana project, Ayo Salami, Kunle Remi, David Oladele who came all the way from London with some social crawlers to celebrate with Akeem. They were all treated to sumptuous meals and assorted drinks.

Holding Saturday the 9th and Sunday the 10th of November 2019 at the GTCentre, Plot 1, Water Corporation Drive, Oniru, the 2-day event will put a spotlight on Africa’s emerging fashion industry whilst showcasing the talent and creativity of indigenous small businesses in the fashion space.
Since 2016, the GTBank Fashion Weekend has been at the forefront of promoting enterprise in Africa’s rapidly growing fashion industry. Over the years, the event has brought together renowned fashion experts and personalities to interact with hundreds of thousands of young Africans passionate about fashion and entrepreneurship. This year, the GTBank Fashion Weekend, which is free to attend, will feature over 30 distinguished fashion leaders, designers, and industry experts, whilst providing more than 130 indigenous small businesses with free stalls to showcase and sell Africa’s finest ensemble of apparel and fashion accessories.
Attendees at the 2019 GTBank Fashion Weekend will be treated to an exciting repertoire of fashion moments, from fashion and entrepreneurial masterclasses facilitated by internationally renowned fashion experts to enthralling runway shows that will present the latest in fashion styles and design trends. There will also be pop-up stands where talented indigenous designers will display their works and interact with some of Africa’s most passionate fashionistas, an Arts & Crafts Village that showcases the beauty and dexterity of traditional African design.
Commenting on the 2019 GTBank Fashion Weekend, the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Guaranty Trust Bank plc, Segun Agbaje, said; “Africa is home to some of the most creative fashion talents on the planet, and we are delighted and proud to provide them with a global platform that connects them to the world. As we work towards the 4th edition of the biggest fashion showcase in Africa, our goal is to not only showcase the wealth of talent, innovation and enterprise that abound in Africa’s fashion space, but to also grow the continent’s contribution to the global fashion industry by empowering budding entrepreneurs at home with everything they need to thrive on the world stage.
He further stated that “At the heart of the GTBank Fashion Weekend is our vision of promoting enterprise in industries where we believe that we can help small businesses grow and dominate. In fashion, as well as in food and the creative industry, we see not just the amazing talents and passion of our people, but how, by championing their entrepreneurial spirit, we can enrich millions of lives, uplift communities and grow our economy.”
