Oluremi Tinubu

I celebrate an amazing woman today. A woman who has inspired so many. Oluremi Tinubu was born September 21, 1960 in Nigeria. Oluremi Tinubu is the former first Lady of Lagos State and currently a Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District at the Nigerian National Assembly.  She is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Political Party.

Oluremi Tinubu received a B.S in Education from the University of Ife. She became the First Lady of Lagos State at the age of 39 when her husband, Bola Tinubu became the Governor of Lagos State. As First Lady, she established the New Era Foundation, dedicated to establishing centres for “all round development of young ones and promote public awareness on environmental health and community service.

Oluremi Tinubu was one of over 100 senators elected in the 8th assembly in 2015. However, only six of these were women. At the 2019 general elections, she retained her senatorial seat representing Lagos Central, making it her third tenure in office.

She is truly a source of inspiration and a phenomenal woman!

Happy Birthday ma’am, wishing you long life and prosperity. Thank you for being an inspiration!

Happy Birthday Adenike!

I am evolving and I am unfolding! I am the best version of me. I am unrelenting in the pursuit of my goals. I celebrate me today! Not my accomplishments or accolades. I celebrate my life!

Today, I am a year wiser and stronger, basking in God’s grace, wisdom and mercy. All I can say is thank you almighty God for sparing my life, for inspiring and leading me on.

On this day, I celebrate myself Adenike Omotosho as I add another year. I wish myself more grace, more prosperity, more happiness and many more years ahead.

I thank everyone who has inspired me to become who I am today. For those that I might have inspired, I pray I won’t stop encouraging you. Let us live our best lives impacting others positively. Do not just exist but live while you exist. May God almighty take us all to greater heights and grant answers to our heart intentions.

Happy birthday to a blessed and beautiful soul ❤

Lupita Amondi Nyong’o

I celebrate an amazing woman today. A woman who has inspired so many. Lupita Nyong’o is an actress. Lupita Nyong’o was born March 1st, 1983 in Mexico City. Raised in Kenya from the age of one. She attended college in the United States, earning a bachelor’s degree in film and theatre studies from Hampshire College.

Lupita began her career in Hollywood as a production assistant. In 2008, she made her acting debut with the short film East River and subsequently returned to Kenya to star in the television series Shuga (2009-2012). Also in 2009, she wrote, produced and directed the documentary In My Genes. She then pursued a master’s degree in acting from the Yale School of Drama. Soon after her graduation, she had her first feature film role as Patsey in Steve McQueen’s historical drama 12 Years a Slave (2013), for which she received critical acclaim and won several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, becoming the sixth black actress to win the award. She is the first African to win the award, the first Kenyan actress to win an Oscar.

In addition to acting, Lupita supports historic preservation. She is vocal about preventing sexual harassment and working for women’s and animal rights. In 2014, she was named the most beautiful woman by People. Lupita has also written a children’s book named Sulwe (2019), which became a number one New York Times Best-Seller. Sulwe is the story of a five year old Kenyan girl, who has the darkest complexion in her family, for which Lupita drew upon her own childhood experiences. Sulwe was selected for the 2020 Illustrator Honor at the Coretta Scott King Awards and won for Outstanding Literary Work- Children at the 2020 NAACP Image Awards.

In September 2019, Lupita became an Ambassador for Michael Kors. In October, Lupita and her mother were honoured at The Harlem School of the Arts’ Mask Ball with a “Visionary Lineage Award”. Lupita is involved in the organisation Mother Health International, which is dedicated to providing relief to women and children in Uganda by creating locally engaged birthing centres.
