It was all shades of glitz, glamour, and luxury at the 50th birthday party of Aisha Achimugu, the Abuja-based businesswoman, which was held in the Caribbean Island of Grenada last week.

Aisha turned 50 on January 22. To celebrate her golden jubilee, the socialite went all out for a seven-day event, packed with numerous festivities which saw guests alternate between Calivigny Island and Silversand, an intimate and luxury resort which is set on the sands of Grand Anse Beach in Grenada.

The party, which kicked off on January 16 was reportedly attended by some of the crème de la crème of the Nigerian entertainment industry and prominent figures — including a governor.

On the first day, guests arrived, settled in, and unwinded from their journeys. The second day involved a welcome breakfast, exploration of the resort, and mingling.

Activities like kayaking, swimming, and treasure hunting were all scheduled for the third day while the attendees came out dressed in African attire for the special performances which involved drum dance on day four. There was also a bonfire as guests gathered around a night of warmth and music.

The fifth day saw the attendees enjoy performances from a local band, a wide array of cocktails, and a retro disco party and on the sixth day, the guests went on an excursion around the island.

The seventh day (January 23) was then capped off with an all-white breakfast and a luxurious dinner that was themed ‘glitz and glam’ before the guests said their goodbye to Grenada.

It was reported that Achimugu spent nearly $1 million (more than a N1 billion) to rent the island for an entire week.

The cost of a night at the Silversands Resort begins from the sum of $1,060 (N1,378,000) per person.

Calvigny Island, on the other hand, costs about $30,000 ( over N39 million) per night — for the entire island. The prices for the private island can also vary from $30,000 – $165,000 per night — depending on the time of year.

The entrepreneur also created an eponymous website — ‘aishaachimugu50th.com‘ — specifically for the birthday celebration.

The website contains details about visa arrangements, standby chauffeurs, travel itineraries, and the closest airport to the event location, among others.
