The sayings that you should follow your heart if it brings you happiness and to not pay attention to what others say because there will always be opinions rings true for Folashade Okoya, the youngest wife of Chief Razak Akanni Okoya.

When she met the now 84-year-old, she was very young, beautiful and still a student at the University of Lagos. She would later follow her conviction to marry him soon after she graduated. Many believed she was marrying the billionaire industrialist for his wealth. But she was confident in her decision and followed her heart. Some even speculated that the man wouldn’t live long due to his age.

However, God has blessed them both immensely. Not only is the octogenarian still well and alive, living in good health and thriving, but their marriage has also produced four lovely children who have all grown up.

Shade who’s 47th birthday coincided with her marriage anniversary is today a successful wife, mother, entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, and more. The double celebration expectedly took place at her expansive home in Lagos.

It started off with prayers led by a group of Islamic clergy men.  The party proper began as the prayers were rounded off. Some of the important personalities in attendance were Sena Anthony, Erelu Abiola Dosunmu, Emeka Anyaoku, Chief Mrs Risikiyat Adunni Adesoye, Queen Sekinat Elegushi, Justice Oguntade, Chief Adebutu Kessignton, Musiliu Obanikoro etc.

84-year-old Okoya can’t contain his deep affection for Shade, his youngest and last wife.

He said, “She’s a lovely, honest, and faithful woman who is very interested in the family. She cares for the home and loves everybody, including her children. She’s very hardworking. She wakes up as early as 7:00 AM and tidies the house satisfactorily. She does her best to keep the factory going.”
