With an occupation like “Vice President of Entertainment,” one would expect Monique Sebastian to truly bring it for her fabulous 40th birthday celebration. The wife and mom, totally lived up to any expectations guests may have had for her extravagant masquerade themed bash. From the second partygoers hit the door they were greeted with an explosion of color, exquisite decor and of course mind blowing entertainment. “We went with aerialists, contortionists and stilt walkers. My guests were intrigued and entertained by the exotic vignettes at every turn. We were so detailed, we even selected the bronzed and buff models that served my signature cocktails,” Monique said. It wasn’t just the hired acts that thrilled guests. The guest of honor’s son a.k.a. mini “Bruno Mars” (they really do resemble!) gave a surprise performance of some of the artist’s chart topping hits. “It was my biggest shock of the day! I was blown away by his detailed choreography and singing,” the proud mom said.

Everyone has heard the adage, “it takes a village to raise a child,” but no one could envision an African village quite like actress and singer-songwriter Naturi Naughton’s “it takes a village” themed baby shower.

I wanted something that was more realistic, unlike the usual animation jungle characters,” Naturi said.
The love story between Sade Teyibo and Ayo Agbeluyi started when the two were just children. They met in middle school and quickly became sweethearts, but lost contact as they got older. Sade, the free spirit, moved off to New York City to pursue her dreams in the fashion industry while Ayo took the safer route entering graduate school in Scotland. But as fate would have it the two reconnected and in 2017 they got engaged while vacationing in Abu Dhabi. “We were enjoying drinks at the champagne bar with another couple who had been married for 20 years when suddenly Ayo got on his knees to propose,” Sade explained.
