Fab Friends & an Intimate Dinner! Media Personality Efe Tommy Celebrates his Birthday in SA



Efe-Tommy-Birthday-Dinner-August-2015-BellaNaija0024Media personality Efe Tommy was a ubiquitous figure in the Lagos showbiz scene before he relocated to South Africa a while ago.

He recently celebrated his birthday (on Sunday, July 30) and had an intimate dinner with close friends a few days ago on Wednesday, August 2.

Currently studying International Marketing and Public Relations, Efe Tommy has always been known for his refreshing style on TV and on the red carpet. The birthday boy stepped out for his dinner wearing a hand crafted “piece of art” shirt by Italian designer Antonio Marras from his Fall/Winter 2014 collection, ripped denim from Zara and ankle boots by Gucci.

Even though he is not relocating back to Nigeria anytime soon, Efe Tommy exclusively shared with BN that he is currently working on building himself and being able to add value to whatever space he finds himself in the future. He adds that he will be relocating to new spaces and traveling to explore life’s best experiences.

For the event, his friends were hosted at the uber chic highbrow restaurant, The Cod Father at the Sandton Skye in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The evening kicked off with guests served in fine 1980s Chardonnay and red wine as they mingled with each other. His close friends came in stylishly dressed and just in time to enjoy intimate moments with the birthday boy and also enjoyed a three course meal from the personalized menu created by the restaurant for him.

      That food is a waste of bill. Let’s not forget quality over quantity, a fail because the size trash and quality- abeg! I can melt sneakers or splash Nutella around my plate for less than 3 dollars. Infact mamaput tops these snacks for pigeons.

      Oh yes there is judging because he chose to share it with us ( not family, friend or foes) so I have chosen my side a hater.

      @fasholaslover ask your father

    • Fucked Up

      August 7, 2015 at 9:39 pm

      @Fifi, you are a filthy creature. Animals like you are dangerous. Where were you when shame was being shared? You went for runs?

      For those who do not know what happened. @Fifi made an offensive coment about one of the guests in this post out and even tagged her picture. In my opinion, this is not good at all. BN ought not to have posted that comment. @FasholersLover responded and l think her comment was excellent and it generated a lot of agreements. Someone must have complained about what @Fifi did. BN has now pulled down the offensive comment.

      @Fifi, pls. hide your face. That your comment was odious. It is against the norms of civilised behaviour. Maybe you should ask your father why he refused to teach you right from wrong.

    Nasty haters everywhere. Sad Gollum-like creatures crouched behind their devices and snapping at people who are actually making an attempt to make something of themselves.

    Now you’ve all spewed your bike, you can go and rest and feel good about yourselves.

    but i am shocked at this @fabsols coke and fanta skin colour. i actually thought she was a babe on Instagram, asheee its been filter all this time. she should beg her boyfriend to give her some cream since he’s fair and fresh. anyway, i wont touch her with a pole if i was him, when i came see some fresh girls here! LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO!
