brain behind the outfit is Abimbola Kinoshi and she has been in the
business for many years now.
 
SUBTLE ELEGANCE’S MIND BLOWING DECOR
 Speaking
of an Event Decor Company that takes charge of A-list events both on
the Island and mainland then Subtle Elegance Events will come to mind,
she has been in the business at first as an event planner for close to a
decade now , but her love for beautification made her go fully into
strictly decor and florist. Abimbola Oladiran, the brain behind the
outfit keeps upgrading every day with beautiful centrepieces,
chandeliers, and candelabras. She made Eniola Badmus father’s burial
venue something to talk about, guest can’t get over the beautiful
settings anytime soon as she sure knows how to play with colours.
Another thing that added class to the event was the aisle which was
meant for Eniola to sit, it was beautifully decorated with white and
pink flowers and florals with a huge chair placed in the middle for the
princess, it was no doubt a sight to behold, not to mention the mind
blowing pieces on each tables, Subtle Elegance Events is no doubt good
at what she does.

first son of Oba Idowu Oniru, the Oniru of Iruland was among Island
dignitaries who came to show love to Eniola. His reserved table was on

right now, she is popular called Oyinscoberry and she is married to a
popular Lagos big boy called Obascoberry and the union is blessed with a
handsome boy, who had a fairytale 1st birthday a few weeks back and it
is still the talk on the Island. The family is close to the Oniru and
the Eletu Edibo’s, Oyinscoberry is pretty and blessed with a great
physique, which brought out the beauty of her well-designed aso ebi, she
got a lot of attention with the front revealing some cleavage as she
stepped into the venue with her friends. Her table was reserved beside
Aremo Oniru, but was later joined together as they share almost the same
friends in common.
 
CHURCHILL, PRAIZ AND THE ENTIRE CHURCH GROUP FULLY ON GROUND
Tonto
Dikeh’s estranged husband who is also a Ghana-Naija big boy, Churchill
Olakunle was fully on ground for the burial. He came with the whole 
Church Group Crew and also the brand Ambassador of his company who is
one of Naija’s talented music act, Praiz. Their table became the center
of attraction as they came in. One can tell Churchill is a shy person as
he was glued to his phone most of the time at the event except when he
went on stage to cheer both K1 and Eniola Badmus. Eniola Badmus is not
just a friend to Churchill, but also very close to the entire Church
Group crew.
 
DAVIDO ABSENT
Anyone
on Davido’s social media would be looking forward to seeing the popular
music act at the event, considering the fact that he, Eniola Badmus and
his record label share a close bond. Davido has been talking about the
burial on social media even a week to the event, telling fans how he
can’t wait to storm the event, support Eniola and enjoy himself. All
that was shattered when the news of the death of his Uncle, Senator
Isiaka Adeleke broke in the early hours on the day of the event. Senator
Isiaka Adeleke, the first Civilian Governor of Osun State and a serving
Senator is the immediate elder brother of Davido’s father, his death
came as a shock, considering the fact that he was at a function full of
life on Saturday and died on Sunday, this explains why Davido who is
known to be a family person could not make the event as planned.
