It was a night of glamour. Of tributes. Of music. Of gaiety and camaraderie.
There was much to eat and to drink. The ambience was cool and the guest list impressive.
That was the atmosphere at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Lagos, where Chairman/Editor-in-Chief THISDAY Media Group/Arise TV Networks, Nduka Obaigbena, a prince of Owa Kingdom in Delta State, drew political bigwigs, technocrats, captains of industry, the intelligentsia and others to join him in celebrating his 60th birthday.
The night of hedonistic display, featured Aside the greenery, dangling chandeliers, alongside revolving disco lights creating a cozy ambience.
As the guests wined and dined, popular American R&B singer and songwriter, Toni Braxton, was introduced to a visibly excited crowd.
Song by song, the songbird serenaded the guests and at a point she asked an audience member to join her on the stage.
Although the guest, who simply gave her name as Nkechi could not sing the lyrics of the song, that did not deter her from swaying to the admiration of all.
So how much did it cost to get Toni Braxton to do this gig?
