• Former NSC boss celebrates blissful matrimony with close friends and family

Neither cord nor cable can so forcibly draw, or hold so fast, as love has done in the lives of Otunba Gbenga Elegbeleye and his beautiful wife, Solape. To the stylish top politician, love and marriage so gladly combine, like Siamese twins born in the same clime. Gbenga is head over heels in love with Solape 20 years after his heart skipped to the sweet, soft drift of her smile.

Gbenga and Solape’s story reads like a dreamy exposition to extraordinary verses of love. And unlike most husbands, Otunba Gbenga Elegbeleye hardly reminds his wife, Solape, “of an orangutan trying to play the violin.” And unlike the late French writer, Honoré de Balzac, Elegbeleye’s wife has no reason to doubt or disdainfully analyze the character and depth of her husband’s love for her in such manner. And the reason is never far-fetched; Gbenga does not only deploy great tact and ingenuity at his pleasing his beautiful wife, he showers immeasurable love on her at every opportunity. And so did he recently as he organized a lavish party to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary in their Asokoro residence, Abuja.

The event which was well attended by the nouveaux rich had the celebrants treating every guest to sumptuous meals and drinks. Solape was as usual, in her element as she radiated faultless beauty and delight that has kept her husband persistently head over heels in love with her through the years.

The former Director General of National Sports Commissions and Former Chairman House Committee on Sport and his ravishing wife surely understands the importance of celebrating the good times with verve and unparalleled class. With unusual fervour and matchless elegance, they enchanted the FCT, summoning unprecedented glamour and depth to excite the country’s exotic metropolis.

The event was well attended by friends and associates of Otunba Elegbeleye.  In attendance were Edem Duke, John Fashanu, RT Hon Emeka Ihedioha, Sen Dino Melaye, Sen Ehigie Uzamere, Sen Uche Ekwunife, High Chief Edem Duke , Ex Bayelsa Dep Gov Ebebi, John Fashanu, Nollywood star ,Racheal Okonkwo, Hon Bassey Ewa, Hon Mayo Akinfolarin, Hon Yakubu Garo, Frank Edozie, Otunba Gbenga Odusanya, popular TV presenter, Rachel the piper, Hon Paul Adah, Dr Oluleye, ex ES of PTDF, Chief Dele Oduwale, super Eagles player, Femi Ajilore, MD Accolade, Ginika Tor, Senator Dino Melaye among many others. As the A-list guests wined and dined and slipped into jolly moods, the Elegbeleyes thrilled their palates and souls to the choicest of exotic meals, music and liquor.

They held court and provide ample space and materials for their distinguished guests to hobnob in a sumptuous royal gathering designed to rival the best of the filthy rich’s parties. The couple hosted their guests court amid hundreds of exotic flowers, intricate carvings of ornamental architecture and an ambiance decorated with the best of grand decor.

The Elegbeleyes’ wedding anniversary was undoubtedly a spectacle of grandeur; among other things, it reflected the couple’s impeccable taste and high sense of fashion, order and splendour.

The spectacle may seem peculiar, but it actually reflected a deeply rooted culture of majesty and respect for the marital institution.

While the couple played host to a stream of family, friends, business and political associates, their posh residence pulsated with pomp and glamour. The elaborate event, which paraded top politicians, respected technocrats, society big wigs and captains of industry, saw the guests shuffle and nod to the liveliest and most delightful musical tunes. As the guests thrilled to delightful music, their hair stood on end and they tipped over in merriment – their joy spilling from their souls into the air and sky high into the blue firmament.

The Elegbeleye’s residence exploded inwards and outwards in colorful bursts, the bass and treble guitars black strumming and buzzing to mesh with the cymbals and drums in a thunder clap. Enthralled, the guests moved in gaiety, tap dancing and swaying to the beat as if they meant to enact a beach rave or simulate an indoor Ibiza.

The melody reverberated through the halls and passageways of their posh apartments and spilled into the atmosphere, drawing excited and muted sighs of pleasure from their invited guests and neighbours.

Otunba Elegbeleye who became Otunba of Ikareland few months ago, is indeed a true man of his people and his wedding anniversary serves as incontrovertible evidence of this fact. The calibre of dignitaries that trooped out to his residence to celebrate with him and his wife presents a worthy testament to his enduring popularity and acclaim.
