Truth be told, the UBA Group sure knows how to organise a party. So amongst all the banks or better still financial institutions in Nigeria they need to get an award or even awards for always organizing the best parties, events, occasions ever.

With billionaire banker cum businessman, ‘Tony Elumelu’ as the ‘Group Executive Chairman’ and with Kennedy Uzoka, one of the highest paid CEOs in Nigeria, whose annual take home is N139 Million Naira as the Group CEO/GMD, the bank seem to be in good hands and great health. So at least once every year, after working so hard through the financial year, there comes that period, that time that’s set apart by the Pan African financial institution, which has one of the most impressive spread across the country and outside, and a financial institution that’s one of the top 10 biggest banks in Nigeria, to let off steam and those that makes all the magic happen to be well patted on their backs or shoulders in a convivial atmosphere.

The annual event, always packs a whole lot of major punch. With top entertainment brought in to add good vibe, first class guests invited mixing with the top staff members and other members of the group. It is always one of those events to look forward to yearly. So this 2019 edition didn’t disappoint at all in all ramifications. Eko Hotel Convention Centre was the right spot picked as the venue. And the place was packed out as expected.

At least, we saw 2 of the incoming new Governors, though they are still Governor elects for now, till they are sworn in. Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu of Lagos and Prince Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state were very present. They are both gradually becoming the most visible Governor elects in Nigeria right now. 3 of the royal fathers in the house that came were none less than his imperial majesty, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Babatunde Ogunwusi Ojaja II, the Ooni Adimula of Ile-Ife, his royal majesty, Oba Rilwan Osuolale Akiolu, the Oba of Lagos and his royal majesty and a Northern royal father we couldn’t readily identify.

Some of the other important guests seen were none other than the billionaire Executive Chairman of the biggest bank in Nigeria, Zenith Bank in the person of Mr. Jim Ovia, former Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Sir Emeka Anyaoku, Mrs Maiden Ibru, Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly, Bashorun Dele Momodu Zof Ovation Group, Fidelity Bank MD/CEO, Nnamdi Okonkwo, Nova Merchant Bank, Executive Chairman, Phillip Oduoza, former 1st lady, Onari Duke, top Nigerian actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde and very many more.

Entertainment was provided by such power house musicians and entertainers like Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Phyno, Olamide & Patoranking.

More incredible pictures after the break.

    1. My dear the thing is something else. Never seen anything close. It is a legend in its own right.

  1. The Emir of Kano Sanusi Lamido Sanusi is not at this function . You labeled the wrong person anyway in your photos

    1. I was about to agree with you that his/her prescription glasses must have been purchased in Lagos traffic, when I scrolled up and looked closer…. it's actually NOT SLS the Romantic… it's someone else! But how the heck are we supposed to tell all you Northern Lords apart when you all go about wearing the same disguise (turban aka male hijab)…?

    2. Well maybe I’ll head to specsavers on your behalf . Just know this SLS hates TOE with a passion and I doubt he’ll honour his invite , Dates back to their UBA days . I’m sure Aloba can fill you in …

  2. His wife is so beautiful, heard she is a doctor. Onari Duke is another natural beauty.

    Lovely pictures. Thanks Aloba.

    1. You heard? JJC BVs won't kill somebody. Dr is clearly written before her name in the picture captions above

    2. E ma binu, not everyone reads the writeup. Just scroll through pictures. Na on another blog I read say she be doc. No vex. Okay now?

  3. But seriously!!! What is it about Bank bosses and their rampaging phalluses??? TOE's reputation precedes him. I hear it is big and truly a weapon of mass destruction that he knows how to use well well. Just like TOE is on rampage so is his fellow brother JO. That one also loves to mark register like his very life depends on it….

    1. I tried a TOE once. About 12years ago. I ran away nothing can compensate for such recurring uterine damage. He should be going with his thing. His Mrs is definitely strong.

  4. Aloba!!you never hear say saheed elegushi is marrying tanko yakasais daughter tomorrow??abeg go and find gist for us!!
