KFB Best friends Alert! Ibrahim Babajide Obanikoro and Kenny Akinrinmade

Best Friends are very special people in your life. They are the first
people you think about when you make plans. 
They are the first people
you go to when you need someone to talk to. You will phone them up just
to talk about nothing, or the most important things in your life. When
you’re sad they will try their hardest to cheer you up. They give the
best hugs in the world! They are the shoulder to cry on, because you
know that they truly care about you. In most cases they would take a
bullet for you, coz it would be too painful to watch you get hurt. 
Lol, we could go on and on but that’s just an intro anyways…guys, the newest trend on KFB is

the best friends alert, whoop!

Every Thursday, we shall bring you the best friends series where we’l feature top socialites and their best friends….hey calm down, it’s not just the top socialites, you can get featured too. 
All you need do is send us a mail at [email protected] with the BEST FRIEND ALERT subject and we shall give you the necessary details you need to get featured.  Life is all about celebrating friendship, friendship is one of the bonds that holds us together.
So, kick starting the KFB Best Friends Alert is socialite Omokehinde Rhoda Akinrinmade and bestie, Hon. Ibrahim Babajide Obanikoro.

Kenny is one pretty lady whose face you must have seen on TV presenting one program or the other and she runs a blog HERE  while Hon. Jide Obanikoro – one time chairman elect of the Ikoyi/Obalende Local Council Development Area – is the son of the immediate past Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana, Musiliu Obanikoro.
Kenny calls Jide her “bestest friendship” while he calls her “Abefe eni”

Kenny met  Jide 5years ago at a friends place – it was actually a certain argument about Kwam 1 that made them friends. While Kenny was arguing, Jide calmly joined in saying “please can I say something…” from there they began talking.
Her respect for Jide Obanikoro grew when she found out how much he loved and still loves God. Whenever he hears the call for prayer, he leaves whatever he is doing to partake in the prayers, he is a very humble Muslim faithful.
“Sometimes his actions surprise me, I never thought he could be as God fearing as that, knowing the kind of home he comes from. I could be rude to him at times, get angry and say stuffs I shouldn’t say but he never gets mad. Being the best friend that he is, all he would say is ‘Abefe buy OMO and wash your mouth, lol” and we would laugh over it” He knows virtually everything about me.”
The strength of his friendship heightened when Kenny lost her twin sister, Taye, last year, he was there for her. 
“He stood by me, ah he really did….he was always with me. He lent his shoulder for me to cry on and always cheered me up”
Jide has a favorite sentence “Are you crying or laughing because you only have 30 set of teeth not 32 and since I have 31, I am still the man”

Yes, Kenny loves to trouble him all the time and that’s why he calls her “Omokehinde Abefe Ijogbon ko se ni kan fa ~ Trouble maker.”

“I don’t care about the impression people have about Jide, he is human just like everyone else. He sees the truth and pain in me even when I am fooling everyone else. He is the bestest friend ever. I can shout it to the rooftops”
They don’t need to talk everyday, sometimes they don’t talk for weeks but when they do, it’s like they never stopped talking.
Join us next Thursday for another exciting KFB Best friends alert, and until then keep the “best-friendship flag” flying….
Btw, here’s a quick tip on how to be a great best friend —–> Learn how to respect yourself. If you can’t respect yourself, then you
can’t respect others. Decide what boundaries are important to you and
respect them. Not only is this healthy for you, but you’ll also get
enough practice and experience so that you’ll be familiar in this area
when respecting other people’s boundaries. Understand what values are
important to you and stick by them. Seek out others who honor those
values because you’ll only end up hurting yourself and possibly others
if those people don’t have the same values as you.
