Celebrations are so unending at FAB, trust that. There’s always one thing or the other to raise our glasses to and guess what it is today? Lola Maja’s birthday! Yay! Yes, same spontaneous Lola we talked about yesterday. Just only yesterday, we were excited about the birthdays of the FAB twins: Sinem Bilen-Onabanjo (Editor) and Familusi Akin Babajide or Mr. FAB (Publisher) and saying how so much we appreciate them and how so phenomenal Lola’s role at FAB is.
Lola is sweetheart at FAB, no doubt and you don’t need an extremely intense reason to love her. She is simply that – likeable, very unassuming and so full of life. She’s also so fun to be with and very spontaneous – we said that yesterday.
I remember interviewing Lola for another publication. She had been so involved in our talk – or so I thought – until a friend of her’s had walked in. Imagine all that screaming and talking. They had gone on like that for minutes until Lola suddenly remembered she was doing an interview, quickly apologized for that break and introduced me. When I told Sinem about it, she just smiled so hard and said; “That’s so like Lola and she doesn’t mean to hurt you so you wouldn’t even feel the need to get offended”. Yes, that is so like Lola! Happy-go-lucky and “going through life 150 miles an hour”, according to Sinem.
By the way, people say Sinem and Lola look so alike, like sisters. I think so too, and they act alike. Isn’t it also a lovely coincidence that they have their birthdays only a day apart?
So the FAB twins are having a “FAB Birthday Bash” today at 284 Lounge for 9PM. You know when FAB says it’s going to be a “bash”, take our word for it. These gems deserve all the love and this break (I hope they’re not working themselves out today again; although I wouldn’t be surprised if they were!). So we wish them a happy celebration, really. Do you? Then tell it to them here.
