On Oba Saheed Elegushi’s social preference
If you refer to him as one of the most handsome monarchs in Nigeria, you won’t be far from the truth.

And the original cast of Mo’Hits crew thrilled guests
No one saw it coming but the high lights of the party was when the birthday boy successfully got together, the original members of the now defunct Mo’Hits crew; Don Jazzy, Wande Coal and D’Banj to thrill his guests.
