The event was a celebration of three major milestones in the couple’s lives. 30 years of being performing artistes, 20 years of being happily married and 50 years of Tunde Obe with the latter getting more of the spotlight.
Tunde Obe was full of gratitude to God for clocking 50 years and jokingly said he is now a man.
“I am so excited that I am 50. I am now a man. I have seen people who were cut down in their prime but here I am celebrating the big 50. I am very grateful. It’s not just that but also celebrating 20 years of our marriage and 30 years of music together. These are really big deals and I am so grateful for everyone who came out to show us support. We didn’t make noise about it because we wanted it to be a family affair and as you can see, what happened here tonight could only have been achieved because everyone here has a strong connection with us, he said.”
