Funke Bucknor-Obruthe (6)Event planner extraordinaire Funke Bucknor-Obruthe is celebrating her birthday today and to mark the special day she has released some new photos, shot by TY Bello.

The photos are pretty and Funke looks ageless.

Talking about the shot TY Bello says:

When I got the call from @funkebucknor to make portraits for her 40th all I could think of was a human trampoline .. Funke has this raw .. Unstoppable .. And BIIIG!energy …. And All the time . !!Always on the go.. Always doing something new with super charged joy .. And she’s always been this way …. There is absolutely no one like ‘Boh-Kee’… So I imagined These images of her all up in mid -air .. Every single frame . But I also know a different side to her .. Her strong .. Pure and beautiful spirit .. If you know her well then you know what I’m talking about .. I wanted to explore that side .. Dialing things down a bit and showing a beauty and calm many don’t get to see. This was such a fun shoot .. My first time working with @bubuogisi and we Must do this again.. As always@bimpeonakoya and @tasalahq rocked it .
Funke .. You’ve brought so much joy to so many people ., may your 40th mark the beginning a beautiful harvest for everything your heart yearns for…#tybellophotography#funkebuknorobruthe#HBD#portrait#makeup by @bimpeonakoya #hair by @tasalahq#styled by @bubuogisi#setdesign by @decorbyfurtullah

      Haba, I am sure someone out there has something
      Bad to say about you too. It’s her birthday say happy birthday and move on.

      I’m truly surprised by the negative comment up there.

      Funke was my wedding planner and she was nothing short of graceful, polite and professional throughout the typical stressful Nigerian wedding process. I had ZERO complaints.

      We became pals from then on, and I’m yet to hear a bad word being said about her. Even her employees can’t stop talking about how down-to-earth she is.

      I guess the saying is sure:
      You cannot please everyone.

      Don’t mind that fool. She’s just bitter because Funke’s fees are more than her house and car combined. E dey pain ???
      Get your money up and stop hating on a successful and carefree woman.

      Happy birthday O jare Funke! You look lovely

      You can say she’s arrogant, but razz? The woman that makes the bulk of high level Lagos weddings and events? Lol not everyone (especially women) will be all nice and flowery. Sometimes I wish I were like that, it seems like that’s what it takes to be happy in this Lagos without people feeling entitled to your space

      Hey Rola, she’s truly razz(very down to earth no need for forming) Very loud too always dancing, singing arrogant… are just an EP!!!!! gerrarahere men!

      Ah ah rola
      . Shes not razz lai lai. Pls you need to go back and carry out mega research on what razz means. She is just hyper active and perhaps talkative . That doesnt make one razz now

      Rola you’re not a nice person…….what is the goal of your comment?….raining on a beautiful parade like this only exposes your inner darkness. Appreciate the lovely pictures and move on. #BadManners.

      You couldn’t even give her a break for her birthday.
      Why would you think such.
      I have only ever seen this lady twice.
      Once was at the lobby of Oriental,she said hello,and NO,we had no business together.
      Second time was at a party.
      She was very jovial,laughed,danced,said hello to so many.
      Is that an arrogant person?

      Rola I imagine the kind of person you are, full of venom. The kind of person that sees no good in other people. I want to imagine you must be a really wicked person. Tufiakwa for your type!!

      You are all on cheap drugs! Fools! The last time I checked, there is freedom of speech and expression! Bloody ass lickers!!!

      Rola, and with your comment, you proved Ripples right regarding the “full of venom”.

      You will be fine. Just think happy thoughts whenever you can and maybe try positive affirmations every morning in front of your mirror. BN family, any other suggestions?

    Hallo Naija ppl. Forgive but we don’t know meaning of Raz in East Africa. Can someone explain? I think the pics are kinda OK. Pic no.3 looks like little green snakes crawling up her. and why does her neck look pink there? Last pic of her shoes/feet look very well done, but the white cloak is overpowering….there is something about the proportions that is off. Also loose the blue contacts no one does that any more. Hair wig/weave style looks fine. Peace

      Razz can mean local and sometimes uncouth
