Don’t act like you didn’t see this coming. Richie Akiva celebrated his 35th birthday last night and to no one’s surprise, when he threw a party at 1Oak, all his famous friends came out to play.
Attendees included DJ Cassidy, Busta Rhymes, Robin Thicke, Paula Patton, Queen Latifah, Rachel Roy, Jonathan Cheban, Andre Harrell, Russell Simmons, Unik Ernest, Tim Kash, Shanina Shaik and others.
What may have been the biggest surprise is that Nelly jumped on the mic. Nelly what are you up to? Can we get a new album? I love you! Busta Rhymes also performed for the crowd.
Anyway, the fact that the party was held at 1Oak and not The Darby proves my point that The Darby is a restaurant and not a club. For now anyway.
Happy Birthday Richie! [All photos by Jerritt Clarke for WireImage]
