Why I Chose To Celebrate My 50th Birthday In Mecca— Saidi Balogun



For one whose birthday falls on February, everyone especially his fans would assume he would have a big bash to mark his 50th birthday.

But that was not his choice.

Rather, actor/film-maker and father of two, Saidi Balogun, chose to go and worship God in the Holy Land, Mecca.  His 50th on February 5 was celebrated in Mecca.

In an Instagram post, the estranged former husband of Faithia Balogun explained why he took the decision:

I thank Almighty Allah, celebrating my birthday in the holy land is my own special way of saying thank you to baba God.” (sic)
