Silent billionaire, oil titan and philanthropist Hajiya Bola Shagaya shut down Lagos on Saturday, 12th October 2019, to celebrate her 60th birthday. Her family and friends, which included some of Nigeria’s top personalities, showed up at the prestigious Eko Convention Centre to honour the high society doyen.


The birthday party saw the likes of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, former president of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan, Aliko Dangote, Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi, billionaire businessman Leo Stan Ekeh and his wife CEO of Technology Distributions Chioma Ekeh, Senator Bukola Saraki, Ooni of Ife Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, and many more dignitaries. The event also saw performances from Beejay Sax and DJ Cuppy.

The photos taken were used to grace the grand entrance to the event. Hajiya treated her guests to the best of high-cost champagnes and other assorted drinks. Continental and local dishes were served as well.
