Shade Tinubu-Ojo is the first daughter and first child of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the chieftain of the national ruling party-the APC. She’s also the current Iyaloja-General of Lagos and by extension Nigeria, meaning the market generalismo in Nigeria, a massive position of influence however you want see it or look at it.
Come next month, on Sunday, June 16, 2019 to be more precise, a date which is just only a few weeks away, she would be gathering the who-is-who together at a yet to still be confirmed venue, for a 3-in-1 mother of all parties in Lagos.
The 3 pronged events are to celebrate 1, her late grandmother, Alhaja Abibat Mogaji’s 6th remembrance anniversary. The late woman of great influence had passed on, on June 15, 2013. Incidentally the late well respected woman and mother of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was the former Iyaloja-General, the same post Folashade is presently holding. So it was passed from ‘Grandma to granddaughter’. Same day, same party, same venue, Chief Mrs. Folashade Tinubu-Ojo would be celebrating her own 6th year as the Iyaloja-General (Mother of the market), a post that was officially endorsed on October 29, 2013 with her coronation on the said date & then to end it all, she would also be celebrating also, are birthday.
Chief Mrs. Folashade Tinubu-Ojo, who is married to a honorable member of the House of representatives, is in her 40s.
According to the information at our disposal, plans for the upcoming party is ongoing in earnest and the aso-ebi (the unique party uniform) for the occasion is on sale as we speak for N60000 per person. So you can go grab yours.
And because of her influencial position as the leader of the market women in Lagos and Nigeria, and also because of the influence of her father too, this party is expected to be a big one by all standards, with not less than 5000 people in attendance. That, most definitely would be a humonguos party.
Before Shade took over from her grandma, she had been selected for the post in July of 2013 and that selection had raised a lot of hoopla, with some exclaiming loudly, why her??? But she was eventually installed as the Iyaoloja-General later in that year in October. Her grandma, the late Alhaja Abibat Mogaji, who had been the only previous occupier of the post, had reigned supreme as the Iyaloja for a good 33 years from 1980 till 2013, when she passed on. But she was said to have elected her granddaughter as her successor, the next to take over from her.
