Grand Finale, Party/Reception, Music by Queen Ayo Balogun, LTV 8 and OSRC Coverage……..Enjoy….

I have come to the grand finale, the party reception. Time for food, music and dancing. Honestly, it took me a while to get a hang of this part of the tradition in Yoruba land. Where we have to dance, merry after just leaving our mother’s resting place. I guess it is tradition and we must comply. Friends and family gathered to celebrate with us. It was like a carnival. Reception was held at Olofin Anglican Grammar School field under a Marquee Imperial Canopy with capacity to sit 1,500 guests. The marquee was elegantly decorated in peach-like gold and coral decors. Life music was produced by the popular Queen of juju music, Queen Ayo Balogun, a renowned juju music performer who gave an excellent performance.

The quality of the food was impeccable, expensive assorted drinks were in the surplus, served in a silver ice bowl big.

The six children took turns to dance from the oldest to the youngest.
