    He’s so cute and he was almost twinning with Dilly in the Gucci ensemble. I hope he had fun but I am guessing he was not bothered and like most 1 year old kids, he’d have just wanted to scatter the cake and lick icing. 🙂

    Denrele – flattest footwear I have ever seen him with. Flatforms! – pretty lady. Well both ladies are pretty. The lady carrying Jayden looks so pretty and clean/neat with that hairstyle.

    Let my poverty mentality kick in for a bit. Black and gold printed menus and poolside venue for a child at one. God please do my own o, so that I can throw lavish birthdays.

      July 27, 2017 at 1:41 pm

      Judging from their body language in ALL the photos they took together,I’ll say NO.

    Theres something wrong with Gbenro and Osas relationship, they are hardly together except its a major event and it would be absurd to the public. not to see them together. Gbenro has stopped wearing his wedding ring…I hope they are able to resolve their issues, we don’t want another celebrity break up

    ohh dear how Instagram can make one look so perfect. fifi (not sure if thats what she’s called) looks soo tired, face looks worn, skin isnt all that from what I see on IG… damn gyal! Her hubs all decked in Gussi (you know wharimean,lol as in Gucci), its only a kiddies partay though man! Issorai!..Tiwa that lace and hair is BAD, like this whole outfit was just an epic fail. I get it when people want to be edgy and all but we aint all Rihanna..Stick to wha works for you…You dont see Genevieve tryna dress like she Beyonce or Lady gaga or Rihanna!.. Nice party though, happy birthday Jay!

    Nice party and sweet theme.
    I would throw this kind of party for my son when he’s old enough to appreciate it, have fun with fellow pre teen friends and remember what happened. PS I’m fully aware anyone can throw parties for their kids whenever they want

    random – but are there random commercials playing on anyone else’s computer when on bella naija? i was legit trying to watch that video of the meme guy, and a louder commercial came on

    July 27, 2017 at 2:15 pm

    @anony, please stop speculating rubbish, its normal for guys to take off their rings after a while and that doesnt mean their marriage is having issues. must they attend functions together?? answer is NO. so please work on ur own marriage if you have one and stop saying nonsense…. monitoring spirit oshiiiii……shewwwwwwwwwwww.

    July 27, 2017 at 2:38 pm

    tiwa let me style you for 10 k only

    July 27, 2017 at 2:47 pm

    @mee, you must be Osas , sorry I touched a nerve. I know what I’m saying, and I’m not speculating rubbish, but like you said, its none of my business, we go kuku hear the truth whichever way. Btw, I’m happily and fabulously married and ive been for 6years now,before you people tie everything to whether one is marriage or not.

    • Bey

      July 27, 2017 at 3:00 pm

      Youre ”happily” married, but wishing unhappiness in someone else’s union. Based on no ring, and not attending parties 2geda.
      how rich.

    • waterchild

      July 27, 2017 at 5:25 pm

      then why does it seem like you’re wishing for their marriage to fail? Stop speculating okay!! Jeez, the heart of man is desperately wicked, I’m sure you’ll be one of those waiting to hear that their marriage crashed so you can say I told you so. Please just take several seats.

    • Mamamia

      July 27, 2017 at 10:34 pm

      You are just a useless person o. Badbele. If her marriage cracks is it ur marriage? What is wrong with people these days self. Do yourself a favor and face your marriage girl cause u never know what your randy husband mugh be up to. Now how does that feel coming from someone who knows nothing about you, Horrible right? Mtcheeeew

    • sweetzie

      July 28, 2017 at 3:01 pm

      But anony is stating her opinion! And to be honest, You guys don’t really think it’s weird gbenro took off his ring few weeks after their wedding? The ring symbolizes marriage commitment! Assuming they didn’t use a ring at all then that’s a completely different situation. Guys relax. It’s just an observation that’s all. Anony’s not saying they’re broken up. Jeezzzz

    • Diamond

      July 27, 2017 at 4:26 pm

      And you know the crack is still there because? Amebo trying to act nice. Abeg, keep your opinion to yourself.

    Wow! All the kids look so healthy and strong…isn’t this extravagantly obscene and over the top for a one year old?

    • the real ibinabo

      July 27, 2017 at 9:36 pm

      What is obscene about this? I have seen people that don’t have half of what Ubi and Lilian have block streets for their kids birthday parties, abeg leave people to spend their money how they deem fit.

    • jide

      July 28, 2017 at 2:59 pm

      Poverty mentality. That’s not even a $10K party and you call it obscene. Yet ladies be carrying $6000 chanel maxi flap and $5000 Fendi bags but you won’t call that obscene

  25. Hmm

    July 27, 2017 at 8:13 pm

    Life happens but, It is nice to see the parents making an effort at their son’s first birthday. Maturity at its best.

    On the second to last picture. Is that Kcee’s wife carrying Jayden (standing next to the lady in green)? And is she preggers?

    nice pictures

    happy belated birthday to their child, son

    @sweetzie how many men wearing their rings are truly committed, its a thing of the heart and its also possible that the ring is tight on his finger

  29. ....

    July 29, 2017 at 8:48 am

    Busola dakolo very fresh faced..hardly any makeup… Lilian is very she this pretty in real life? All u ppl that tailor ur lives around Instagram pics now u have seen that u need to be yourselves…don’t let Instagram mislead you…you have seen Fifi dilly for who she is.

    Lilian needs to work thing out with Ubi. She’s thinking shes too beautiful for him or does she think all these Nollywood actors will marry her. She’s acting all busy n content on Instagram but we know no one will marry her again or take her serious. To me I she never lived him (Just wanted fame) This Ubi looks so responsible n a good husband n people who know him says his a great guy. Lilian is the one doing shakara for him ?u better go back because more beautiful girls are willing to marry him n have him to themselves ?#justsaying

    Wow beautiful party. Jayden is a very handsom boy. Lilian is really beautiful. How I wish they live together to raise this boy. I love the fact that Lilian is involving Ubi in their son’s life, that is very healthy. The boy needs not suffer because of the parents. Tonto should borrow a leaf from this couple. the fact that they are separated/divorced should not deprive a child both parents love. Lilian keep it up.
