By Dipo Olowookere

Saturday, March 12, 2022, will remain fresh in the memory of some Lagos socialites who trooped out to one of the bubbling fun spots in the metropolis, House 30 Lounge.

The day was set aside to mark the fourth anniversary of the lounge located on 30A, Aba Johnson Crescent, Akora Villa, Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja.

The biggest boys and girls in the city were at the All-White party to celebrate with a showbiz guru, Akinwale Oluwaleimu, who is also a business associate of Seun Oshofisan on the House 30 project.

Among those who graced the occasion were Bimbo Thomas, Femi Davies, Yomi Fash Lanso, Shina Oyetayo, Tunde Ablo, Chief Segun Akiremi (Karan), with music provided by Femi Trinity, Toye St Charles,  MC Ajele, MC Openteeth,  MC Chinco, DJ Vinnie, DJ Dammy, Crazy DJ Shezxy, and Master Tee on Congas.

Speaking at the night of glamour, pomp and pageantry in the picturesque of Ikeja, Akinwale thanked the guests for identifying with the brand.

“First of all, let me start by saying the idea to celebrate our 4th year in this business is not because we have too much money to throw around, no!

“We decided to celebrate four years of entertaining Lagosians, four years of giving our best of hospitality to people living in Ikeja and its locality. And you see this won’t have been possible if our clients and customers didn’t trust us with their welfare.

“We consider their patronage an integral part of House 30 so we decided it is important for us to celebrate ourselves. And trust me, this is just the beginning, it’s obviously going to get better, better, and better.

“Let me also use this opportunity to especially appreciate one of Nigeria’s premium drinks, Campari, for standing by us in this time of celebration, and every other individual and organization.”

House 30 is a full-fledge hospitality firm that has over the four years of opening served fun-loving Lagosians. Owned and run by two creative, dedicated and hardworking Nigerians, Seun Oshofisan and his cousin, Akinwale Oluwaleimu, who with over 30 years in the Nigerian entertainment scene, has not only made his mark but has contributed immensely towards the growth of several entertainers.
