Olakitan Olubi takes over lagos social scene


OLAKITAN-OLUBINobody seems to know her before now, but her appearance at the 80th birthday party for the banking scion, Otunba Subomi Balogun, brought her more closer to the public glare.

The whole hall, which was packed full with celebrities and high society players, had the likes of former Lagos State governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN) and his wife, Abimbola; billionaire businessman and entrepreneur, Alhaji Aliko Dangote; Femi Otedola; Wale Tinubu; and Abdulsamad Rabiu; were all inside that Special Marque at the Tafawa Balewa Square.

None of the superstars above ruffled any feathers or stole the show; the cynosure of all eyes was the very little known Olakitan Olubi.
Nobody knew how she got into the strictly-by-invitation event, but she did not only cause a stir, but also ensured that many stared as she walked into the arena.

It was not her height or her complexion; it was her outfit, which was provocative and completely out of place at such an occasion that was filled with many conservative types.

One person who saw a picture of the outfit said Olakitan should be applauded and not derided for having the impudence and buoyancy to attend that party in such a dress, and pull it off with a smile.

We agree with that assessment and it must be said that her boldness too may have been aided by her partner, who stuck to her like a K-Squared security guard and a Police Alsatian dog combined, throughout the occasion, as she strutted all over the place.

Olakitan, the 25-year-old graduate of Finance and Banking from Bells University, is the Creative Director of her own budding fashion house, make-up studios and training outfit, Magnetic Elegance, located at Ajao Estate in Lagos.
