The serene town of Mosogar, the home of the Omenes, was literarily put on hold on March 18, 2017 as one of the town’s most popular socialite, Egbe Obine Thompson aka IG Mama celebrates her birthday. Her birthday was March 14.
It was a carnival of a sort as guests and groups tried to outdo one another in their costumes and dance steps. The town rocks till the wee hour of the next day, with champagnes becoming free-for-all.
The celebrant told the magazine that she had no better reason to celebrate in the fashion she did this year’s birthday party.
