The popular socialite and Borokini of Ejigbo/Ijanland, Otunba Olumide Abegunde, today added another year to his age on earth.
Otunba Abegunde is a philanthropist, who has spent many years in the social circle shuffling between United Kingdom and Nigeria before silently settling down to a life away from the limelight.
He is reputed in some quarters to have been one of those responsible for the popular Fuji entertainer’s comfortable stay and easy sojourn to the United Kingdom during the latter’s first attempt at traveling and plying his musical trade abroad.
Borokini has been severally praised by popular musicians in Nigeria and beyond for his humanity services and large heartedness. The likes of Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, Pasuma and more had once waxed records in his praise.
He had through Team Jandor sponsored several humanitarian projects, one of which was free digital training for the youths in Oshodi-Isolo Local Government and Ejigbo Local Council Development Area.
He is a native of Emure Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria; a town made popular in the USA after the king of Emure’s grandson, Adewale Ogunleye, made it into the NFL for the Chicago Bears.
No wonder the town is one of the more prosperous towns in Ekiti as it parades several illustrious sons and daughters doing well all over the world.
His wife, Yeye Borokini of Ejigbo/Ijanland, Yeye Olaitan Abegunde, told Freelanews that she was grateful to God for the gift of life and prosperity bestowed on her husband.

“This is a beautiful day to make it all about you and to celebrate the most wonderful husband’s birthday! You’re most kind man I could ever meet and I am so lucky to be able to call you my husband.
“Words can never describe how lucky I am to have you in my life and especially to be by my side, you are the source of my happiness and we have made so many incredible memories.
“I look over so many of our photos. And behind both good and bad, we have made some seriously beautiful memories. I have never met a kinder, more generous, intelligent, loving and honest person in my life. You can be the most irritating person with your horrendous jokes, but I wouldn’t want you any other way, my darling husband. Have a wonderful birthday, darling!” Yeye Abegunde wrote.
