December 03, (THEWILL) – Socialite and humanitarian, Kemi Adewunmi recently clocked 60. Quite a number of her fellow members on the Lagos social circuit and fellow politicians had expected the widow of former Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal Ibrahim Alfa, to roll out the drums for a grand celebration on account of who she is in the society and her achievements. They hoped she would shut down Eko Hotel and Suites just as she did during her 50th birthday party 10 years ago. But Kemi shocked everyone when she decided to go low key to celebrate her diamond jubilee. The former governorship aspirant in Ekiti State on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, instead chose to give thanks to God for the privilege of witnessing her 60th birthday at her local church in company with her two daughters.
Later in the evening, she had a private dinner at an exclusive restaurant with her family and very few close friends. Perhaps the current mood of the nation may have compelled her to opt for a low-key celebration. A philanthropist of note, Kemi is the president of Soroptimist International and the Women Initiative for Advocacy, Social Justice and Empowerment, among many other organisations and groups she heads.
