Sahara Boss, Tope Sonubi Celebrates Low Key 50th Birthday

exactly three months after a principal partner in Sahara Energy, Tonye Cole held Lagos spellbound with a 50th birthday celebration that people are still talking about, another Director of the oil company, Tope Sonubi also lighted up the Lagos scene some days ago as he threw a private party to also celebrate his golden age.

The Banana Island, Lagos home of the Sonubis was the location of the party where guests were thoroughly screened by stern looking security guards who were employed by the celebrant to maintain the private status of the gig.

A source that was present at the pool-party squealed to papermacheonline in a baffled gesture ‘these guys don’t know any recession, you need to see how much they spent’ that gave an insight to what guests witnessed at the party.

The party was handled by comedian, Koffi and planned by Ibidun Ighodalo’s Elizabeth R event management company
