Yesterday event planner extraordinaire Funke Bucknor-Obruthe celebrated her 40th birthday in style with a Thanksgiving and cocktail soiree held at The Incubator in Lagos.

The event was put together by Zapphaire Events and it was attended by close friends and family of Funke Bucknor.

We love how fun, colourful and playful the event was with Funke Bucknor herself taking to the dance floor to show off her dance moves alongside her daughters and husband.

    Ahn ahn! “All” the photos how?

    This photographer bia, come and answer query…after using flash to blind my eye 100 times to take my picture, wharrapen na?

    Happy birthday again dear Funke. Your thanksgiving party was fantastic! The praise and worship was beautiful. The speeches were moving. The DJ made us shake our tail feathers (in a most holy manner of course 😉 ) The finger foods were off the charts, the cocktails were a delight to the eyes and taste buds, the decor was simple yet effective…..yes yes I know I’m gushing but it was just a really good party.

    Plus I’m a couch potato who’s hardly invited to Lagos groovings and related shenanigans…So please permit me to make noise for this one.

    Okay. Bye. 🙂

      @bleed blue,you’ll soon remove your veil of anonymity on BN. Now when all the pics come we’ll say hmmmm….which one is bleed blue….lol. How are you? Hope the uncertainty at work is gone?

      @Cynical my dearest, wait oh…did I mention the uncertainty at work here on BN? I don’t even recall. Na real WA for me! Perhaps I need to practice small restraint from now on….before what you say will come to pass.

      It’s pretty sweet of you to ask how things are with me. I’m fine and kuku still employed. So far so good. Though the way my office is emptying is giving us some low morale men! This oil price matter is norasmallsomtin. But we trudge on.

      Hope you’re good too? 🙂

    Lovely! She has accomplished so much in 40 years… truly it’s so important to know and live out one’s purpose. I’m inspired. Happy Birthday Funke – here’s to the next 40!!

      That is exactly what I thought.
      She has accomplished so much before 40… that is super amazing and encouraging.
      I hope to do so much more too.

      I love her. Met her once at an event she organised she was so warm and lovely!
      Funke, keep inspiring. MAY JOY CONTINUE TO BE YOURS NOW AND FOREVER.
      Happy for you and your family. xxx

      **Exciting things** ahead. x

    Nice pics, she looks overwhelmed with joy. Surprised she’s just 40 though. I always thought she was Aunty Mo’s mate (50+).

    aaaaw when she was crying i’m pretty sure at that point everything came flashing back and she realised at that moment how lucky and truly blessed she is. Forty more years and more to you Amin!!!

    I know Funke from afar (in Church) but her personality is infectious. I wish her many more years of pure joy. May you keep shining for God. Amen.

      It means an elegant evening gathering according to google. Happy birthday Funke. I’m praying I will have reasons to celebrate mine too.

      @Ijebujesha, this is not meant to be a diss, I just wish to state the obvious – GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND.

    Btw, my main reason for being on this page. Happy birthday FBO. I’ve always loved your determination cos I remember how all this event planning business, (and the others like MUA, etc) started right before our eyes and you took it to the next level and made it a household name and a force to be reckoned with, You have done well for yourself in 40 years, and you truly deserve this and much more. Continue to soar higher and higher..
