Veteran Nigerian actress, Toyin ‘Tomato’ Adegbola, clocked a milestone age of 60 on December 28 and her children made it a memorable one for her.
The thespian took to social media to recount how her children collaborated with a friend in faraway America to throw her a birthday party and to also give her a special birthday gift.
Toyin Tomato’s children gifted her a brand new Lexus automobile and the gift was presented to her after she got back from the orphanage where she marked her birthday with the less privileged.
However, she got back home and met the brand new car. But that was not all. A top music band had been hired from Abeokuta and a caterer had been called to help mark the day in a bigger way.
Toyin Tomato got very emotional after the new ride was presented to her and she looked close to tears as she got into the driver seat of her new ride.
Part of the actress’ caption reads:
“My 60th birthday had come and gone but i witnessed a great coup plot on that day.
My plan had originally been to celebrate it in low-key, just to visit the orphanage in the morning and come back home home in the afternoon to entertain a few friends and well wishers. This is exactly what I had in mind.
But alas that was not to be.
I came back from the orphanage to find a new Lexus ES350 in my compound, courtesy of my children. I was flabbergasted. As if that was not enough, there was also a musical bandstand, all the way from Abeokuta by @ayantunde_alujojesu , and my official caterer, Mrs Victoria Olubisi Arimoro ( Divine caterer) on ground.
Labake and I were totally in the dark. All these were planned and successfully executed by my sister, Monisola Babatope from far away USA in conjunction with my children.
I cannot appreciate you enough.”
