Multi-millionaire businessman, Kola Aluko was among several guests that attended the recent birthday party of Hollywood star, Leonardo DiCaprio. The party which was held at a restaurant on Sunday night included big Hollywood producers and several other billionaires.
Big spenders who reportedly ordered bottles of champagne at the event included “The Wolf of Wall Street” producer Joey McFarland and Texas businessman Nate Paul. Other billionaires there included Vladimir Doronin, Ron Burkle, Jho Low and Vivi Nevo.
Kanye West was paid $100,000 by DiCaprio, personally, to perform.
The party was a lavish affair as guests reportedly ordered bottles after bottles of champagne. Kola, however, denied spending $1.5 million dollars on champagne at the party. Over $3 million was raised at the party for the Leo DiCaprio foundation and Aluko said he would be donating money to the charity.
One guest told us: “The party was wild — wall-to-wall models. There were probably 20 girls to every guy. Leo started the night with a dinner in a private room and then joined the party around midnight.
“Danny A, who hosted, would get on the microphone and announce who placed the champagne order and for how much… then a train of 100 bottles would come out with sparklers and girls dressed in burlesque [outfits].”
Danny A is the guy who famously fell afoul of George Clooney by “talking [bleep]” during a basketball game while on Leo’s team.
Our spy reports, “2 Chainz performed, then Kanye surprised Leo and performed a full show of about 10 songs with DJ Jus-Ske including ‘Clique’, ‘Good Life’, ‘Power’ and ‘All of the Lights.’ Kim Kardashian was singing along.”
The guest added, “Leo and girlfriend Toni Garrn were front-row for the entire performance, dancing and kissing.”
Also there: Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Benicio Del Toro, Ronnie Wood, Martin Scorsese, Brandon Davis, Orlando Bloom, Tobey Maguire, Ed Norton, Q-Tip, Lukas Haas, Tony Shafrazi and Busta Rhymes.
Aluko is a mega-businessman who, last year, made Forbes list of ‘Ten Nigerian Multi-Millionaires You’ve Never Heard Of”. He runs Septa Energy Limited and also has a charity named the Made in Africa Foundation.
The multi-millionaire businessman was spotted last month lunching with supermodel, Naomi Campbell in Paris.
