Dele Momodu turned 60 on Saturday, and although physical distancing rules may stop him from throwing a party, it’s not stopping his loved ones from showing him SO MUCH LOVE.
While the media mogul had a quiet celebration with his family in his home, love for him poured in from across the world, coming first from Australia, and then everywhere else, including from President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
