Highly revered and 44th president of the United States of America Barack Obama marks a year of celebration as he turns 60 years.
Reports indicate that, the 44th president of the US and his family is set to celebrate his birthday in a grand style at his luxurious Martha’s Vineyard estate on the island of Massachusetts.
Although the birthday falls on August 4, reports circulating is that, the power packed birthday celebration is slated for this weekend where plans have been made to contain over 400 guests including family and friends.
Under strict Covid 19 safety protocols, the crew for the upcoming birthday party will put measures in place that will serve the purposes of the former head of state’s vaccination advocacy thereby, making sure the hundreds of invited guests who are not yet vaccinated undergo vaccination before they can partake in the get-together at the forecourt of the estate.
Also, the close source of the former Democratic leader, revealed that, people might genuinely want to send presents and gifts to the former US president on his special day but, the Obamas would prefer they channel all the gifts to the charity organisations seeking to support young boys and girls of colour including the Obama Foundation’s Global Leadership programs which seeks to empower young boys and girls, My Brother’s Keeper Alliance and Girls Opportunity Alliance.
