Birthdays come once a year and for many people, it is a time to celebrate life and living.

For Nigerian lawyer and businesswoman turned theatre madame, Bolanle Austen-Peters it is no different as she gathered friends and family to turn up in style at her 50th birthday celebration.

In true theatrical fashion, she chose an avant-garde theme for her party and the outcome was so glamorous, it would be a sin not to share photos from the event.

Asides from the awesome party, Bolanle took her family to church for a thanksgiving service and a poolside party after.

Bolanle Austen-Peters is the founder of TerraKulture, producer for the award-winning movie “93 Days” and director of several musicals including “Saro the Musical”, “Wakaa the Musical, “Fela & the Kalakuta Queens”, “Queen Moremi” and many more.
