Exclusive Photos: 2Face Idibia, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Muna Abii & More Attend Uti Nwachukwu’s Birthday Dinner



IMG-20150808-WA0067Model, actor and TV host Uti Nwachukwu had his birthday a few days ago and to celebrate he hosted a private dinner for close friends and family.

Known for throwing a lavish party every year for his birthday, Uti shared the reasons for making things pretty lowkey this year.

According to him:

This year I decided to go back to how it all started. Actually I wasn’t going to do anything for my birthday this year because I’ve been so so busy and I really wasn’t in the mood for those huge parties. I was due in the UK and a lounge there had made plans with me but I had a serious workload here so I had to stay back.  About a day to my birthday I spoke with one of my mentors and he said EVERY BIRTHDAY is a sign that God is renewing you so you should at least acknowledge that with some sort of thanksgiving and celebration, no matter how small. I sat and thought about it and realized he was right. So I decided to just have a very intimate home cooking style dinner with MY family and very few Pals from primary, secondary school, University, NYSC & my early days as young hustling entertainer – PLUS those who were there for me before the fame and people who have supported me one way or the other. So it went exactly the way I pictured it. I was filled with so much joy gratitude happiness and peace. It felt good to bond with them all over again. I left there feeling so elated.’

The event was attended by Enyinna Nwigwe, Frank Osodi, Onah Nwachukwu, Annie Idibia, Ifeanyi Nwune, Yolanda Okereke, 2face Idibia, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Muna Abii and more.

Uti also shared with us his thoughts on getting married. According to him I meant every word I wrote about marriage in my exclusive article for Bella Naija. It isn’t about age or what not. Until I find the person who makes me feel that way. I am not going to bother. But by God’s grace and his will. It shouldn’t be too long from now. Hahaha. I’m just grateful to be Alive, Healthy, Happy, at peace with myself and I can afford to pay my bills. God has been too kind and faithful to me’

The Dinner took place a new spot called BLD by Play and we’ve got the exclusive photos!

    • Bruno Fiercetwo

      August 10, 2015 at 1:07 pm

      Bruno you say a lot of crap!!! If he throws a huge party you will say that’s all they know how to do, he throws an intimate party its now he doesn’t have money smh. As per worst dressed, that’s not a nice thing to say. Happy birthday Uti in arrears and I liked the intimate dinner of close friends and family not celeb famzers…

    • tutu

      August 10, 2015 at 3:12 pm

      Lmfao for the record you twerp. Does this buffet look like a low key party in terms of cash? And by the way the fact that you have a poor taste doesn’t mean you have to rub it off or judge someone else’s fashion. Uti is undoubtly one of the best dressed individuals in Africa. He’s a fashion icon and role model. Thanks.

    • temilis

      August 10, 2015 at 3:20 pm

      Aha hahaha. Bruno. You are really a miserable poverty stricken olodo!!
      Didn’t u read where he said clubs wanted to host him. Do you see celeb famzers there ?? Mumu!
      YOU CALL UTI WORST DRESSED CELEB? HAHAHUHAHEHAWW. I LAUGH IN JAPANESE. I excuse ur upside down brain cos u meant to day BEST dressed. If u maintain ur former word then you are hate and beef filled. Jolosee!!!!!!!! Lamo

    • T babe

      August 10, 2015 at 4:21 pm

      And BN will post comments of miserable people like this, Bruno. But will screen others. Smh, BN I’m slowly but surely getting tired of you guys.

    • Mabel

      August 10, 2015 at 9:57 pm

      @Bruno you ass is just too cheap and that is why you can’t throw yourself a lil something. You can cook some food and invite your nearest and dearest get a simple cake and drink some zobo., play some music and gist. This is what these ppl have done, they just have the money for a venue and catering, you don’t have money for a venue and catering so you keep your ish at home and call it a day.

      Best birthday party I ever went to was a house party that went on until 6AM, amazing vibes with a group of people just having good, clean fun.

    • cee

      August 20, 2015 at 6:24 pm

      Bruno u sound like u’ve crushed on Uti for so long and couldn’t get him hence u decide to hate on him…smh

  3. Life schools us

    August 10, 2015 at 1:04 pm

    You see life hein !
    Never come between two FRIENDS who have personal beef.
    Never offer yourself to bitter souls to be used as a tool of revenge.

    Because the day they will reconcile, you’ll be the one feeling the shame.

    I’ve seen Tayo on Rubbing minds saying some things about Uti & Gbenro’s beef, Ebuka was there adding salt and pepper because He wasn’t in good terms with Uti.
    But see now! UTI & EBUKA have reconciled. I saw His birthday wishes to Uti on twitter.

    Uti is surely growing and I appreciate that. The guy has been badmouthed up and down, accused of being selfish and not happy with His friend’s success.

    This entertainment industry is tricky, one should always trade with caution.
    You will soon see Uti and Gbenro reconcile, Uti & Alex Ekubo, etc.

    Because they are all brothers, no one is perfect, no need to ride on other’s people weaknesses to paint yourself as a saint. We all have our bad moments and shortcomings!

    Let’s love reign! Celebrate togetherness!

    I love you TAYO, you are a shining star, a good nigerian ambassador, you’ll go places.
    TAYO NATION please forgive and forget!
    I love you all : Uti, Ebuka, Gbenro, Alexx Ekubo, Vimbai, etc

    Please I ask y’all in the name of God to forgive and forget! Let’s start a new CHAPTER in those broken relationships. You’ve had time to heal, God has surely been good to all of you. Make Him smile biko, shame the devil.

    Hebrews 12:14-15
    “Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled…

    Peace & Love

      FIRST OF ALL. UTI and ebuka never had a FIGHT to the best of our knowledge.
      Second of all. It’s these guy that have always attacked utis character when all we can see is how he assisted and helped them. Ever asked yourself why UTI has never come put to bash anyone of them in particular ?
      To me all I see here is a case of envy and covetousness. His friends in entertainment always seem to want what he has gotten and that to me is witchcraft. So biko UTI. If u are quarrelling please reconcile but DO NOT LET THOSE VULTURES BACK IN YOUR LIFE O! (Even u write am as article ) A WORD is enuff FOR THE WISE!!!!!!!!

  4. Come Uti

    “‘I meant every word I wrote about marriage in my exclusive article for Bella Naija. It isn’t about age or what not. Until I find the person who makes me feel that way. I am not going to bother”

    Using style to tell the girls you are still single….huh
    Uti i laugh you. Who cares about you?
    Who cares abut your status?
    Fame is deceiving you abi?
    Let me tell you, the demised most influential people on earth are long forgotten. Who do you think you are?

    It is your personal problem, not even your family’s problem but yours.
    If you like clock 50 b4 you marry, e concern me? dat one go increase my salary?

    You using style to increase the number of girls who will be opening their legs for you all in the name of getting married.

    Sleeping with the girls one after the other and saying you are single.
    You better tell the truth, your manhood dey work? OR one of those mammy water girls yaff carry your manhood go?

    No one gives a damn

      That’s what I was thinking, his and uti used to be roommates what happened?

    • OneTallboy

      August 11, 2015 at 7:49 am

      They were not room mates. UTI housed him for YEARS and Alex boy is too ashamed to appreciate him in public cos he feels it will open his yansh that he is from a poor family. So not roommates but he used to be utis protégé. Get it facts right. Don’t ask me how I know.

    Beautiful pictures! I’m sure Uti and his guests had a lovely time. Very pleasant guy with a nice disposition. I’ve observed that even when he sneezes,he makes news. My advise to on lookers is to be patient. I see a lot more potential in this dude. He’s going to surprise the living day lights out of all those who always bad-mouth him. As for marriage, hehehehehehe while you all are there wondering,he will shock you with an angel for a wife!
