It was a surprise indeed.
She clocked 60 years old in May 2021 and seems to have got over any form of celebration.But last weekend in Lagos, family, fans and friends of Waka Queen, Salawa Abeni, gathered to celebrate her.
It was a surprise party and she confessed that she was actually paid to perform at a friend’s party.
In an instagram post, QSA as she is fondly called wrote:
“She was SURPRISED! QSA @ 60.
I dont even know where to start from….. YES I am speechless, surprised, still amazed but most importantly THANKFUL, GRATEFUL and HAPPY!! They all got me, you all got me. I’ll tell you the story behind this party…. I was called to come and perform at a very good friend’s birthday party. I was even paid for the event and GUESS WHAT? It was a surprise party for ME!! ORDINARY ME!! Mi o ni jo ara mi loju o!
I am more than thankful to everyone.” (sic)
Also taking to Instagram, Salawa’s daughter, Okikiola revealed how she hatched out the five-month plan.
5 months of plotting and planning, stealing numbers off my mum’s phone all in the name of helping her update her phone….. the story is long but WE pulled it off.
