A few months ago we posted Grace Ihonvbere‘s photo on Instagram and you all went gaga, as you couldn’t believe she was turning 50!!!Grace Ihonvbere 50th Birthday - Imagio 2015 - BellaNaija001003CEO of Uptown Asian Cuisine & Lounge in Abuja, the head-turner celebrated the landmark birthday with dignitaries and celebrities, and her loving husband of over 20 years, Prof. Julius Ihonvbere, SSG of Edo State.

Grace met her husband when she was an undergraduate at the University of Port Harcourt in the 1980s. He came to speak at a neighbouring campus, and she reluctantly followed a friend. The rest is history!

On the family front, Grace is a mother of four and a grandma as well.

Esteemed guests at her fun party included Governor of Edo state – Adams Oshiomhole, Kayode Fayemi – the former Governor of Ekiti state and his wife, Senator Domingo Obende, Jimmy Ahmed – Captain of IBB Golf Club Abuja, Patrick Chidoka, Okey Igwe – CEO Bolingo Hotel, Oludare Bello and more.

The event also drew a lot of entertainers – Basketmouth, Helen Paul, 2face, Waje, Yemi Sax, DJ Switch and was hosted by Mc Efx.

Here are all the glam photos!

      God has blessed you with wealth, it is people like this that deny you of it. She has nice taste in clothes tho.

      @ Wale Quit the poverty mentality – YOU DO NOT LACK BECAUSE THEY HAVE! There is enough for everyone in the Universe!

      @Wale, l agree with you for once. This same people here talk about corruption when they don’t even know the meaning. How much was Prof earning before he became Minister? What were his antecedents? The journey looooong.
