Friday, 23 November, 2018. The day was indeed great, full of glamour and fun when handsome gentleman, Murzeek Olalekan Shittu, accomplished businessman and property merchant, celebrated his 50th birthday in Atlanta, GA, USA.
Though some people were involved in the preparations, there was no doubt that at the thick of things was his beautiful and elegant wife, Maryam Alaari, celebrated haute Couturier, who was working the phones even till the very last minutes to ensure that the day was a huge success.
Indeed, the day turned out very grand and colourful with an assortment of prominent Nigerians turned out to honour the celebrant and his wife.
