Julius Agwu’s double outing
Leading entertainer and the exponent of Okombo music in Nigeria, Julius Agwu and his wife, I.B., jointly celebrated their birthdays recently.What perhaps, many of his fans do not know was that Agwu, who just turned 36, started the day with a special visit to the Hearts of Gold Children's Hospice, a Surulere, Lagos based orphanage for abandoned children with physical disabilities and deformities.
Agwu and his wife, who were accompanied by some of his staff, donated cash and gift items to the home before leaving. They also spent quality time playing and chatting with the inmates, who sang him and his wife, a special birthday song.
Agwu, who has been visiting the home and several others for over five years on his birthdays, further called on his colleagues and well-meaning Nigerians to avail themselves with such opportunities, adding that such children need love and companionship always.
The birthday boy and his amiable wife, later hosted pals, colleagues and well wishers to a lavish all-night soiree, at Da New Grotto, in Victoria Island, Lagos. The star-studded event was also well attended.
