Tony Elumelu Heirs Holdings chairman

Suzanne Elumelu, the 95-year-old mother of the businessman and philanthropist Tony Elumelu, on Wednesday showed her youthful side by dancing to ‘Buga’ by Kizz Daniel.

The nonagenarian, while seated, moved her body rhythmically with a lot of energy to the music.

She also sang the happy birthday song to her son and prayed for him in Igbo.

At the UBA headquarters in Lagos, an event was held in celebration of the iconic businessman. There, former US President Bill Clinton made a pre-recorded speech in honour of his friend Elumelu.

Elumelu’s children made pre-recorded speeches to celebrate their father who is widely regarded as a women’s advocate.

At the after-party, Elumelu, dressed in a white shirt and black and white-mixed pair of trousers, and his wife Awele dressed in a beautiful red gown, treated guests to music, food and drinks.

Top musicians Wizkid, Ckay, and Flavour Na’bania had guests dancing to good music. Wizkid is a UBA ambassador and has become a friend of the Elumelu family.

The legendary singer Ebenezer Obey was also present.

Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki and actress Omoni Oboli also witnessed the occasion.
