WUNMI OBE HITS 40

wunmi Obe  (3)Showbiz couple Tunde and Wunmi Obe will host very close friends and family members to a private dinner and dance party today in Lagos, in celebration of Wunmi’s 40th birthday anniversary.

 Wunmi, a writer, singer, actor and entrepreneur clocks 40 today.

 She was born at the Lagos University Teaching hospital, LUTH on July 31, 1969.

 ‘‘It felt like it was so far away. I remember back then in the eighties, I used to imagine what it’ll look like in year 2009 when I clock 40. But now, it’s all happening so soon’’, the celebrant told Ayenithegreat on phone early this week.

 Born Omowunmi Valerie Adedoyin Aboderin to the late Chief Olu Aboderin and his wife Florence Jadesola, she attended Grange school, Queens College and studied Philosophy at the University of Lagos.

 It was while an undergraduate at UNILAG, that she met Tunde Obe, a co-aspiring singer and co-member at the popular Turning Point band. They got married on June 26, 1998, and are now blessed with three kids: Modesayo (8), Riccardo (7) and Andre (5).

 From club rounds to private gigs and regular slots at Jazville and the old Coliseum, Wunmi proved she’s got talent, and earned industry respect, at a time when many of her contemporaries were still struggling with acceptance. And she took it to an entirely new level, when she debuted on the Charly Boy show as Miss Snowbottom. She acted the part not just well; but excellently. Just as she did the short hilarious drama sketches with Tunde.

 She won more fans doing the Charly Boy show, and reached large audiences across the nation. But she has spent the better part of a brilliant career as a recording artiste (with T.W.O.) and performing artiste (with the band DeJavu).

 ‘‘Apart from a few holiday jobs back then, I think the only job I’ve ever kept outside entertainment, was as a copy writer with LTC advertising. Entertainment is it for me. And it’s the same for my husband Tunde’’, she says, insisting that she has not ‘‘really’’ abandoned TV. ‘‘I’ve done a couple of stuff on TV in recent times; even a soap. But maybe it’s about time I give it the same attention I give music?’’
