Julius Rone Serenades Wife, Utibe, at 40


Unlike most husbands, Julius Rone the chairman of UTM Group, hardly reminds his wife, Utibe, “of an orangutan trying to play the violin.” And unlike the late French writer, Honoré de Balzac, Julius’s wife has no reason to doubt or disdainfully analyse the character and depth of her husband’s love for her in such manner. And the reason is never far-fetched; Rone does not only deploy great tact and ingenuity at pleasing his beautiful wife, he showers immeasurable love on her at every opportunity. And so did he last Wednesday as she celebrated her 40th birthday.

Utibe Rone clocked the age of 40 on 27th December. As Utibe adds another year to her enchanting life, the pert, blue flame of joy burns through her pretty frame; brightening her world and burnishing her persona with irrepressible shine.

The beautiful mother of three lovely boys is beside herself with joy for being privileged to witness yet another glorious addition to her inspiring days. Curiously, however, at 40, some women are like sapphire, they glow as the brilliant blue gem thus colouring the world with their craft. Some are sassy as teens and cute as amber studs. Some are like coral clasps – pretty yet disposable. Amidst the glitter, Utibe is an emerald cut. Julius was made for Utibe. To Utibe, it probably feels like she had him ordered and delivered to her, to be worshipped and revered.

On this note, it may be said that Julius is Utibe’s idol. And this is where it gets interesting; Julius also considers her a boon from God. The wealthy dude treasures her like a priceless heirloom – this explains his predilection to flaunt her like a sapphire-studded wristwatch or buttonhole bouquet to the world. No doubt, Utibe was and still is the mysterious woman of his dreams, the angelic muse that inspired and still invigorating his ardor, leading him everlastingly into the Eden of unparalleled love. With her, he suffered no false protestations of love and blissful companionship Their love was neither a performance nor a jailhouse thus Julius and his heartthrob felt no pressure to break out of a literal or symbolic prison of lust and unrequited love. Utibe owns Yutees, the much-talked about fashion house in Abuja. Gifted with a physique and psychological balance not a few people would die for, she has evolved from the proverbial silver spooned kid to a full-fledged, self-driven entrepreneur with astounding diligence and sartorial depth.
