But this year's December 6th is so special as the celebrant well known as Mama Omotayo clocked a landmark 80 years of age.



It was indeed a celebration galore in Ibadan.It was a big occasion organised for the Legendary Mrs. Kayode who is an accomplished Wesley trained Nurse with lots of track records and laurels in the nursing profession.

 She bagged the highly coveted Member of the Order of Federal Republic (MFR) during President Shehu Shagari's regime,in the 80s.Mama Omotayo is a professional to the core and a force to reckon with in the health care industry.


It is also worthy of note that she is highly industrious.She founded the popular Omotayo Maternity, now Omotayo Hospital, and Omotayo Group of Schools.

 Both have been in existence for decades and they are already household names in Ibadan.



She is also known in the Sports realm as a die hard supporter of  IICC Shooting Stars.She never missed to watch live matches of the Ibadan based club.


The celebration of Mama Omotayo's birthday was glamorous and eventful.Earlier in the day,a Thanksgiving service to commemorate the celebration was held at the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Oke-Ado, Ibadan.At the highly inspirational service,Mama Omotayo was celebrated as an icon and a worthy ambassador of Christ.Her indelible contributions to the work of God and Humanity at large were mentioned.Meanwhile,the church prayed for her and the family as they wish her more prosperous years in sound health.

It was a colourful event which saw guests and lovers of the celebrant troop-in in their large numbers to take part in the celebration.



Many of the guests were given the opportunity to speak about mama and how she has impacted their lives.


Among the high points of the event was the arrival of Mama Omotayo into the hall, as she was accompanied by her loving children,freinds, members of staff and well wishers.What baffled many was the fact that Mama still looks fit,strong and agile at 80.This was evident in the way she danced during her arrival into the hall.


Ace musician, Yinka Ayefele stormed the venue to celebrate with Mama Omotayo and this caught the attention of many people in the hall.Ayefele went straight to the celebrant to greet and congratulate her.He also took some lovely pictures with the celebrant and her children.
