Video of his younger colleague King Sunny Ade, who stood by his side throughout the ceremony, can be seen online dancing joyfully to the song.
There was also a sighting of Shina Peters at the gathering. Ebenezer Obey was flanked by a Juju musician.
Obey’s birthday cake, however, was the star of the show. The 80-year-old man couldn’t contain his excitement when he discovered dollar bills tucked away in his birthday cake.
The Ovation magazine CEO, Dele Momodu, helped the Juju veteran pull out the money as he kept exclaiming.
