The excitement is palpable already as it’s only a few more hours to the throw-down of the season, Fatima weds Jamil’s wedding dinner in Lagos. Like a movie with many sequels/parts these wedding ceremonies have been watched with much excitement and admiration by many, so this last part would be the king of it all.
We can tell you for a fact that most of the rooms at Eko Hotel, if not all, have been taken! You would be surprised by how many from far and near who have arrived and have been booked or are trying to book rooms so as to take advantage of tomorrow’s event. Like someone jokingly said, even the mermaids too are storming the venue and surroundings tomorrow and you can’t really blame them as they have to display goods and sell wares!
Can you blame any, when at least 5 presidents, many ex-leaders, many state Governors, innumerable Government functionaries, uncountable numbers of billionaires, millionaires, captains of industries, members of the diplomatic corps would be in attendance and there’s actually a limit to what the space can contain.
For those who don’t know already, former world’s richest man (now 2nd behind Jeff Bezos), and the greatest philanthropist of all time till date (having given as much as $35billion to charity), Mr. Bill Gates is already in town and is ready for the throw down of the season at his friend’s dinner for daughter and son-in-law. That tomorrow Friday, March 23, 2018 would be lit is an understatement, it would be indescribable in all ramifications. Wait for how people would be jostling to have a picture or 2 with Mr. William Henry Gates III better known as Bill Gates tomorrow! Though he has been doing other things since he arrived, his major reason for coming also is to attend the dinner tomorrow! He has met with PMB & other top dignitaries already, but tomorrow would be a more relaxed affair from 7pm till much later.
For the sensible, if you don’t have anything very important to do around Eko Hotel and environs tomorrow, just avoid the place all together. The anticipated traffic due to security might be out of the world.
