The Osile Oke-Ona Egba, His royal majesty (kabiyesi) Oba Dr. Adedapo Adewale Tejuosho, Karunwi III is undoubtedly one of the most respected monarchs from the South Western part of Nigeria.

Amongst the proud Egbas, his stool is one of the most important and most powerful and most respected. Yesterday, Monday, February 19, 2018 was the date that the only monarch in Nigeria, especially in the SW who is never afraid to shout it to the world that he is a "Christian, an unflinching and uncompromising son and follower of Jesus Christ" clocked the ripe old age of 80 year old.

And truth be told, God and nature have been kind to him, as he doesn't look it at all, it's like his royal majesty is just celebrating his 60th instead of 80th. This very pregnant month of February also marks his 29th year on the throne.

The former Medical Director, a trained and practising medical doctor before he became a king, who was the brain behind the well known Teju Hospital amongst many other investments, before he ascended the throne, or better still was called to "Ipebi", which is the beginning part of the rituals towards becoming the King on February 20, 1989

The amiable gentleman king is the father of Senator Lanre Tejuosho amongst his 24 kids (12 men & 12 women), of which is he very proud of all of them.

As part of activities to celebrate the birthday, people gathered from all over, owing to the clout of the Kabiyesi and his family members, prominent people at that, to celebrate his royal majesty's birthday.

Many royal fathers from near and far, former President of Nigeria and elder statesman, Chief Olusegun Aremu Okikiola Obasanjo GCFR was there, in fact the event held at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library Complex, also in attendance were the likes of Aremo Olusegun Osoba, the former Governor of Ogun State, also in attendance were Otunba Adekunle Ojora and Erelu Ojuolape Ojora, Basorun Dele Momodu, Chief Sunny Asemota, Dr. Pat Utomi, Chief Mrs. Nike Akande, Pastor Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi who was on the bandstand alongside Sir Shina Peters, Prince Julius Adelusi Adeluyi, Pastor Ayo Orisejafor, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo, Pastor Tunde Bakare, who gave the sermon and many other men of God in attendance. Also at the occasion were the Aare of Lagos, Chief Razak Akanni Okoya & his wife, Chief Dr. Mrs Folashade Okoya, former Minister of the Federal Republic Chief Demola Seriki, PR guru Yomi and Oyinkan Badejo-Okusanya, Ogun State Commissioner Otunba Gbenga Ashiru and very many others. The celebrant 's eldest son Lanre Tejuosho being a Senator, his colleagues came in good numbers to give moral support, led by the Senate President himself, Dr. Bukola Saraki.

It was a beautiful event by all standards, heralded by plenty of thanksgiving which the celebrant loves to bits.

Give it to him, he doesn't look 60 at all! In fact he looks like a man in his middle to late 40. Is that a compliment? Ooo yes it is. Like we had said to him very recently, he needs to come tell us the secret. We need to know the source of that fountain of eternal youth/youthfulness that flows in his veins.

It's not just that he doesn't look 60 at all, the man is buffed to perfection. He is well sculpted from head to toes, we can bet that he gets winks and glances of admiration from both men and women everytime and everywhere. We are too sure that the gorgeous Dorothy Atake, his wonderful wife just takes it all in her strides, without batting an eyelid.

Not only is the man, well buffed, he is stylish, not held down by the conservativeness of his learned profession. He is always neat and very well put together to a fault. Shirts and jackets are the very accurate size to the t. Pants (trousers) are not longer than they should. Everything is well coordinated, well placed, well wrinkled. Nails are well cut, even the smile that graces the face is well put too.

Not only is he super stylish, he is super intelligent too, in fact to the core and one of the masters of his profession, Law. He is infact a Doctor of Law, with speciality in litigation, arbitration, maritime, admiralty, international trade and oil and gas. 

Born on February 20, 1958, he went to St. Saviours Ikoyi, Government College, Warri, Delta State, Copford College, Colchester, England, The London School of Economics & Political Science, England. Then to the University of Cambridge, also known as Cambridge University in England, where he bagged his doctorate.

Dr Eyimofe had bagged his LLB at 21, he was a counsel at 29 & had gotten the SAN by 41. He set up his chamber in 1987 making it 31 years ago now, after a year stint at the GOK Ajayi chamber.

Here is what the wonderful man had to say about his birthday & himself-

I am 60 YEARS TODAY. Wow!!! That is how you jump for joy and praise the Lord when you are 60 years old and still fit, agile, sprightly, lively, in good shape and health. One jumps high up in the air thanking God for his compassion, kindness, understanding and benevolence. For that reason, I share wholly what YOKO ONO stated: “when I turned 60, it didn’t bother me at all”. Why YOKO? Because in my case, like an older fiddle, my tune is still spectacular, razor-sharp and marvelous. Sing praises to the Lord for me!!!

Happy delightsome birthday to a quintessential fine man gentleman, from us at MM. May the source of that fountain of eternal youthfulness never dry up! 

Salute, another 40 upcoming!

It's always a time of the year that many plan towards and look forward to, that's the annual Lagos Polo season. That's one of those times the big boys, their wives and girlfriends and their kids all gather together to come show off and pose. That season has come again and the Lagos Polo venue at Ikoyi is already buzzing with activities.

The season began last week and continues this week and would end this coming Sunday, February 25, 2018 with many excitements packaged for the members of the elite Lagos club and their guests/visitors.

Apart from wanting to rub shoulders with the creme of the society, which is why a lot go the Ikoyi based club, one other major reason why the Polo club is a must go to for some people is because of their Suya and also if you are a lover of "Amala and Abula- that's the Amala with gbegiri and ewedu, all in one bowl with cuts of meat for every mound", the Polo club Ikoyi take on it, is totally epic and sumptuously out of this world! The sweetness of the Amala is in the tasting of it.

Have a plate on us!

Is it better to remain single or what please is the problem? Is it a problem of liberation or what is it that after all the lavishness of the weddings, the marriage seem to just disintegrate after only a few years! Is it even worth it to be married? Or should we put it another way, are marriages worth all the stress and effort?

Who is to blame? The wife? The husband? Their families? The society? Expectations? Please who or what is it to be blamed? Why can't these young couples weather the storm and rekindle their loves for each other. Or maybe, it wasn't really love in the first instance. Maybe it was all for convenience from the get go!

So is it not better to just be careful, by not lavishing unnecessarily for a wedding ceremony, that would only be for about 2 days at most. Why not put all effort and everything into a marriage rather than all in the wedding party, just to impress those who don't actually give a damn!

Have our values totally gone to the gutters? Do we think or did we think that 2 people coming from totally different backgrounds would just always have it fun and great and good? Can't we ever understand that relationship, marriage is about compromise? We would most definitely piss each other off throughout our lifetime, but that doesn't mean we can't make up and trudge on and make our friendships, relationships, marriages work!

Even if things have totally gone askance, can't we just be very adult about it and for the sakes of many of those involved, by this we mean our children, just work it out even if not as a couple, but as friends, knowing very well that the future state of mind of those kids are determined by us.

Is it a state of pride? My parents, family are better than yours and then expectations skyrockets and in trying to meet up, stress arises and destroys everything!

There are too many examples to point to, where everything was used to have the most lavish and mouth opening wedding ceremonies, only for those marriages contracted to hit the rocks just a few months after!

There is the need for us to sit down and think very well before we take the next steps that can ruin us and take us through hell. Maybe we don't pray enough? But also if we pray and there's no action from us, then it's a problem too!

Maybe those getting wedded needs to be more involved by telling their parents who wants to impress the world to actually cool off!

What can we do to actually rescue the situation? MBG, GBG, Palesa, Fan, Bubblegum, Love and Charm, Aproko, all anons over to you?

So it's not only individuals that have been mesmerised by the magic of probably the highest grossing movie ever "Black Panther", even institutions are falling over themselves to identify with the film! One of such institutions is none other than one of Africa's biggest financial institutions, the UBA Group, where Heirs Holdings boss, the incomparable Tony Elumelu is the Executive Chairman.

The bank sponsored a premiere of the soar away movie very recently at the IMAX cinemas Lekki phase 1, where they did a total take over of all the cinemas for the day and it had all the happening crowd in attendance, who did their best to look their Africa's best in their outfits, following the theme of Kings and Queens.

Some of those in attendance at the premiere were the likes of Tony Elumelu and his gorgeous medical doctor wife, Dr. Awele Vivian Elumelu and their daughters, also there was the Group MD of UBA, Kennedy Udoka and his wife Lotanna, also there expectedly was the EbonyLife TV founder Mo Abudu, actress and film maker Omoni Oboli, Ebuka Obi Uchendu who was the night's host, Noble Igwe, Lala Akindoju, DMD UBA Group, Victor Osadolor, Eyinna Nwigwe, Ruth Osime, OC Ukeje, Michelle Dede and very many others.

Daniel Kaluuya (W'Kabi), Chadwick Boseman (T'Challa-Black Panther), Forest Whitaker (Zuri), Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger)

Chadwick Boseman- King T'Challa-the Black Panther

Marvel Comics has totally, awesomely, matter of factly hit pay dirt! If this movie continues on the same path it is on presently for the next 2 months, it would most likely have broken every attendance record and grossing record available in the market. So Marvel Comics have obviously struck oil, gold, diamond etc all at the same time.

Imagine that all the cinemas in Nigeria alone have been packed out, totally sold out since this movie came out! The hype that has followed this movie has been unprecedented and totally unbelievable!

One of the things that the producers and marketers got going for them was that they delivered a movie that all, irrespective of age could watch! So just imagine a movie that young kids and adults are rushing to go watch- that's already a guaranty for success! That's not just it alone. The hype before the film came out truly got everyone salivating and totally eager to go watch, so as soon as it landed everyone was already running to go be the first sets to watch.

People might not necessarily believe in this our opinion, but a film of the magnitude of BT focused on Africa, a major consumer market, especially also highlighting a superhero and villian from here, with most of the crew being black also, would most definitely touch a good nerve/chord. There's a way the movie has affected the general psyche of the people, there is the hero vibe in our subconscious that has been touched, which is bringing a feel good vibe to the fore.

Has the movie lived up to the unprecedented hype/hoopla that preceded it? Ooo most definitely yes. It's a whole package- drama, thrill, action, comedy, all in one. The cinematography, the cast, the acting ....even the fictional Wakanda, which is one of the richest fictional country in the world all adds up to make it a wholesome experience. Do you all even know that T'Challa the Black Panther is the wealthiest super hero in the whole universe of all time? Richer than the billionaire IronMan (Tony Stark) and the multimillionaire Batman (Bruce Wayne) combined?

Would we advise people to go catch the film? Most definitely yes! It's a 2 hour plus that's super fun and worth the money and the noise! A good movie no doubt in a season of many craps or should we say bullshits!

Check out the awesome cast of one of the year's best movies no doubt, from Chadwick Boseman T'Challa-Black Panther to Michael B. Jordan- Erik Killmonger to Forest Whitaker- Zuri and Daniel Kaluuya--W'Kabi to Lupita Nyong'o-Nakia to Angela Bassett-Ramonda to Danai Gurira-Okoye to Letitia Wright-Shuri and others not mentioned or not shown here, who all gave super good accounts of themselves.

The pictures above shows 8 of the main casts, a case of melanin overload on steroids. 8 proud black people, who are all extraordinary talents. There just has to be a sequel!

Legs for days..........

It's the 2nd day of the new week, but the first working day at that. After all the fun of the weekend, it is back on the grind again and our delightsome long legged wonder here by name "Rukky Sanda" has come to give you the push to go make something good and profitable happen all through the days of the week.

The Nollywood actress and producer is like a ray of good sunshine in her outfit, with the rainbow, that colourful nature's phenomenon that promises calmness just on the horizon with good promises in its effulgence.

Rukky says-

Tz a Kill Shittttt
Murder Ur Goals & Slay Ur

Chief Mrs. in fact (Dr.) Shade Okoya, 40, wife of Chief Razak Akanni Okoya, the Aare of Lagos and multimillionaire industrialist & real estate magnate, is a "dazzler par excellence" and she knowing it, always always does her very best to put her best foot forward all the times in terms of her ensemble/style, especially when the occasion or event demands it, which is always very quite often.

Some of the 4 times a Chief's outfits are so rich, fabric so awesome and then everything garnished with unbelievable jewelry that leaves mouth agape most often. But Shade's major strength may be her gorgeous big eyeballs and her height, which gives her outfits the carriage needed. Whatever it is she's done, makes her look standout all the time

The young mother of 4, was by her husband's side again not only as a delicious, well cuffed high candy, but as a great pillar of enormous support when he was honoured with the "Independent Newspaper Lifetime Achievement Award" 2018 recently.

For those who don't know or might not know, the common knowledge is that Sade has not just been the housewife of a wealthy husband, but she has contributed immensely towards the awesome growth of her husband's brand (company) since she came on board and the signs of the growth have been very noticeable and notable, and for that alone, amongst several other virtues which has endeared her awesomely to her beloved husband, Chief Razak Akanni Okoya, she has the pride of place in his heart!

The annual gathering of money bags, young Turks, the creme de la creme of the society and their ladies and kids is on again. It began last week and would run through this week, ending with a bang on Sunday with some top class entertainment. King Sunny Ade and many of our in the moment top artistes and stars have performed at various times, so it's very likely some big artistes would end the annual tournament again this year too.

Polo is not called the "king of games or the "game of kings" just for fun. It's because the patrons of the game are not mere men, but mostly very liquid men. Reason for that basically is that to even afford the horses used to play the game alone is no beans! So in most parts of the world, those who own teams and play the game are the wealthy. Those who have the means but who don't participate actively by playing, buy the best players and horses to play for them. So like it obtains around the world, so also in Nigeria too.

Some of those horses you see people riding like they are notgnot can build a house or buy some normal cars!

So if you have any reason to want to rub shoulders with the creme of the society then, please head immediately to the Polo club Ikoyi, where they would all be at again throughout the week, better still from Wednesday.

Some of those seen at the polo club, Ikoyi venue during the outgone week, were the likes of Kunle Aluko, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, Seyi Tinubu and very many others.

This year's sponsor is GTbank, amongst several others though.

Check out their pictures.

Style runs in the family here with older sister Karen carrying an Hermes Birkin Croc

Here in this feature is one that can be spoken of or about as a truly great at least when it relates to style and fashion. Lisa Folawiyo, the brain behind the very popular Nigerian fashion label "Jewel by Lisa" and another offshoot JWL is that very one.

Lisa is one that we can say as a matter of fact is truly on the path towards that "Iconic status" that has been so wrongly used or applied that it was becoming ridiculous. We can even say as a matter of fact that her "iconic status" in the nearest future is assured without any doubt whatsoever.

Lisa is one undoubted and gorgeous style maven, who has kept it together for several years now, as we have watched her steadily and we haven't been disappointed at all. Her shoe game/glam is one we can say without any fear of contradiction that is unrivalled and totally out of this world! That she loves shoes is like saying she loves life itself. And its not just about the shoes alone though, the 'magic conjurer' behind the well respected fashion label which has brought good attention the way of Nigeria has an out of this world sense of style, which she projects so effortlessly, so simply chic like it's just 2nd nature to her.

She projects the image of someone who just doesn't try, but just wakes up and she looks good. Style though a personal expression; ones own signature at that, shouldn't be seen to be forceful, it should be seen as a part and parcel of one. That's how well Lisa seem to have projected it.

And we love it.....kudos
