Mama, Chief Mrs. Susan N. Elumelu, who is the ‘Adadionchanma of Onicha Ugbo Kingdom in Delta State just clocked what is considered a ripe old age, which is 90. And to celebrate the nonagerian matriarch of the Elumelu family, the kids 5 of them-Pastor Peter Elumelu, Tony Elumelu, Ndudi Elumelu, Loretta and Agatha, especially led by the amiable billionaire chairman of UBA Group Plc, who is also the founder of Heirs Holdings and many other business concerns, Tony Elumelu, left no stone unturned, in their bid to celebrate to high heavens a woman that means the whole world to the family. Mama’s 90th also coincided with one of her daughters’-Agatha’s 50th birthday too. So it was a double pronged celebration.

Mama’s title has to do with a celebration of beauty, elegance and womanhood and it is quite obvious that mama must have been a stunner par excellence in her younger years, as it’s still very obvious even now. So she’s must have been a beauty to behold in her community, hence the title “Adadiochanma’.

So the d-date was Saturday, August 25, 2018. And 2 venues of choice were the appointed gathering spots. First was the church, The Catholic Church of Assumption, Falomo, Ikoyi, Lagos which was for prayers and thanksgiving, then thereafter was the mother of all receptions, which was at a usual suspect, Harbour Point on Wilmot Close, Victoria Island.

In attendance at the super high octane gathering were the creme de la creme of the society, the movers and shakers, many of those referred to as the pillars of high society and more, who are all friends, family members and associates of the Elumelu clan.

Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola, Jim Ovia, Folorunsho Alakija, Bola Shagaya, Tunde Ayeni, the man who has made Rolls Royce seemingly common Dr. Bolu Akin-Olugbade.
