A Low-key 60th Birthday Bash For Omisore
When it comes to landmark anniversaries among the political and social elite, a few things are expected: a lot of noise, elaborate red carpets, swanky and expensive shindigs and lots of merriment. For former Senator Iyiola Omisore, that was not the case as he celebrated his 60th birthday recently. He opted for a lowkey celebration. To some, his philanthropic gesture deserves ceaseless applause while others hail his political pedigree and wide connections. Grey hair spotting Omisore has been a senator, a deputy governor and two-time governorship hopeful. The rich Ile-ife Prince some days back clocked a milestone age of 60 and based on his financial ability, influence in the high society and the goodwill he enjoys, not a few had expected drums to roll out in celebration of this worthy feat, but the popular politician did not toe the owanbe path. Rather, he opted for a low-key celebration where he took out time to share the joy of his birthday with the less privileged and physically challenged at various destinations. According to sources, the birthday anniversary was not devoid of fanfare in its entirety as some of his associates were said to have been hosted in his Ife palatial home where glasses of wine clinked with all modesty to celebrate the birthday boy. In the same vein, congratulatory messages, encomium and tributes endlessly poured in from various angles.
