Beautiful, generous, enterprising, and philanthropic socialite, Princess Toyin Atobatele has attained the golden age of 50, writes TOFARATI IGE.
The amiable entrepreneur who is also a member of the prestigious Lions Club celebrates her 50th birthday today, October 23, 2015.
Though she is presently in faraway United States of America with her children, goodwill messages have continued to pour in from all over the world.
Before her trip to the US, however, the woman with the heart of gold had visited a motherless babies home, Ozanam House to show love to the residents. During her visit, she shared a lot of goodies such as foodstuffs, provisions, and household accessories to the inhabitants of the house who were deeply appreciative of her heart-felt gesture.
Amongst the lorry-load of birthday messages that adorned her Facebook page at the time of filing this report, some stood out. Her loving husband, Prince Bolade Atobatele wrote, “To God be the glory what a privilege it’s for me to wish my princess, my darling wife, the mother of my children, my friend, and life partner a Happy 50th birthday. Congratulations to you on turning golden. You are such a special person; an amazing influence in my life. We have shared the good times and the bad; I wish you nothing but the mercy and grace of God to enjoy the fruits of your labour as you enter your sixth decade in the Mighty name of Jesus, Amen!!!! Hip hip hip hurrahhhhh it’s your day…”
Her daughter, Wendy, wrote, “Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love and adore my mother. I was blessed with one of the best women in the world to raise me and I owe everything that I am today to her. You are my best friend and my soul-mate and I wouldn’t want to do life with anyone else but you. Thanks for always being my person and always being there for me through it all. I love you so much more than I can ever put into words and I am so glad that I get to spend every minute of your 50th birthday with you. So happy birthday to the most gorgeous woman who just happens to be my mother; 50 really never looked this good. I’m thankful for all the memories we have made and I look forward to many more adventures with you mum. Thanks for loving me unconditionally and accepting every part of me. Every day I thank God for you and I can’t wait to celebrate many more birthdays with you.”
