All the streets surrounding the prestigious Island Club Complex, located in the Onikan area of Lagos were on lockdown on Thursday, 15th June 2022, when a prominent and valued member of the club, Prince Adelana Adesida, popularly called Omoba Adela celebrated his 70th birthday, at the big Club Auditorium, located within the complex.

Because he is generally well-loved by all the Elders and Members of the club, a lot of Island Club members turned up in White, to honour this man who is generally seen as a Goodman.

Although he actually clocked 70 a few weeks back, he chose that Thursday afternoon to mark it, because his wife and children (who live abroad), wouldn’t have been able to make the actual date. The event, which was chaired by auto magnate, Chief Ade Ojo (Mr. Toyota), the Group Chairman of Elizade Motors, who himself clocked 84, a few days ago, started with a Praise & Worship Session, which started at 1pm and went on till about 3pm when Entertainment began and went on till about 10.30pm.

On the bandstand was one of Prince Adelana Adesida’s favourite musicians, Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey, who was at his best, dishing out so many Evergreen tunes. And many guests had a nice time, as Food, Small Chops and drinks flowed, ceaselessly. ASTORIA, the leading catering company, was in charge of food. And the staff gave a good account of their service. The celebrant was on his feet all through the party, making sure every guest was adequately taken care of.

Leading the Island Club members was the brand new Chairman, Prince Asiwaju  Rabiu Adio Oluwa and his Executive Committee members. Also in attendance were members of the Board of Trustees and Elders of the club, like Chief Olu Falamo, Chief Femi Adeniyi-Williams, Chief Lai Amoje and many other distinguished elders. A lot of past Chairmen like Chief Demola Dada, Mr. Banji Oladapo,  Chief Kehinde Shita and others, attended. So also many past Vice Chairmen.

The event was anchored by ace broadcaster, Prince Bisi Olatilo who is also a valued member of the Club. He did a fantastic job anchoring the classy event.

The celebrant’s beautiful wife, looked so radiant, with her kids.
