DAUGHTER OF BILLIONAIRE OWNER OF SIFAX MARIAM AFOLABI SETS TO OPEN MULTI-MILLION NAIRA BUSINESS EDIFICE

Mariam Afolabi
Dr Taiwo Afolabi

Damilola Afolabi 

All roads would be leading today, Sunday, July 30, 2017 to the humongous and supremely stylish new business empire of the designer daughter of SIFAX boss, Dr. Taiwo Afolabi.

The award winning young designer, whose brother is the very popular star musician Damilola Afolabi aka LAX, a prodigy of StarBoi, Wizkid is set to wow all comers today at the grand opening of this new place.

Maryam Afolabi used to run all her businesses on Bisola Durosinmi Etti Street, Lekki Phase 1. That former edifice housed her fashion atelier and other businesses like Salon etc. But she has now moved those businesses to a much more upscale spot on Alexander Road, Ikoyi, just on the left of as you come out at that road that connects the one coming out from Banana Island, hitting Alexander Road.

The artistic expression showcased by those who built this new place is awesome to say the least. Metal containers were positioned and placed and cut to shape, to create space for Mademoiselle Aglaia' s new homebase.

So today is the grand opening, starting from 4pm.

Knowing the connect of her super rich and very influential dad and brother, the event is going to be packed with the who-is-who and also most likely top entertainers in the industry, therefore it is going to be a very colourful and stylish occasion.

Mariam's brand has grown in leaps and bounds since she began the brand, a few years ago her fashion brand which is her baby won the best young brand of the year, at that year's edition of the Africa Fashion Week London.

So we are happy to congratulate her on another leap in progress.    

SAD SAD NEWS FOR SULE LAMIDO AS DAUGHTER HADIZA DIES IN INDIA

Hadiza 

Sule Lamido
The rich, big and very influential also cries so the common saying goes, as a matter of fact, the same 6 feet deep that the poor would be buried in, is the same the rich and famous would also be buried in too. Only difference might just be the value of the land for the burial and the cost of the coffin/casket or cloth the dead would wear, but even at that, it still doesn't matter at all to the dead. For the dead is dead and has no appreciation whatsoever of the value of anything! So why bother at all!

If money and influence could buy the rich more time or the opportunity not to die at all, they would have paid death such colossal amount and gotten the opportunity to live forever and forever, but alas that's not the case. Same death that takes the haves, is the same that takes the have-nots. And at anytime man's mortal enemy death feels like.

For the former Minister of Foreign Affairs, former Governor of Jigawa State and one of those who wants to run for the Presidency in 2019, in the person of Alhaji Sule Lamido, If death had wanted money or connection he would have gladly given those things, without flinching or bating an eyelid, just so that his beautiful daughter by name HADIZA could have remained alive now and for as long as possible.

So death, also referred to as the grim reaper snatched Hadiza, 38 away in her prime and in far away India, this weekend after a brief illness, leaving terrible gloom and despondency and sadness in her trail.

Lamido's daughter at 38 was born in 1979 and is survived by, her dad, her husband and 3 young kids and other family members. Burial arrangements would be announced soon.

May her soul rest in peace.

KATE OKOWO OF BAYELSA HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY DAZZLES ALL COMERS WITH HER EXCEPTIONAL GIFT TO HER COMMUNITY

Kate Okowo




We cannot stop laughing. Truth be told we are totally consumed by laughter that we haven't being able to stop and we just had to re-share this great "act of kindness and generosity" for all to view and be encouraged.

Imagine at this age and time and the so called level of our development, a representative of the people by name "Kate Okowo", a member of the "Bayelsa State House of Assembly" in wanting to "bless" her people for their unflinching support and love decided to "bless them" with a "wonderful experiment of a toilet"!

So ingenious was the contraption that it beggars belief!

Set alongside the flowing river in the state, the contraption someone has laughingly tagged "floating toilet" was constructed using "brand new imported iron sheets" otherwise called or referred to as corrugated iron sheets.

The "ingenuity" comes in the form of, as the lucky users of the toilet would empty their bowels, all the wastes would be enjoyed by the occupants of the river with much enthusiasm, be it fishes etc. This is some form of "unbridled blessings" that the fishes and others would have had the struggle to receive under normal circumstances.

So not much work would need to be done afterwards,bexcept for the user to clean him/herself. So no need for unneccesary labour.

The beauty of the "whole charade" was that, the very blessed madam then called on the media to come "cover" the "commissioning" with much aplomb! All in all, this wonderful donation must have set madam back by several hundreds of ₦!

What a very "chivalrous act", worthy of emulation. Other politicians should take a cue.

Just as an aside, it's very obvious that what one offers to his/her people as either dividends of democracy or in any other forms, either as a philanthropic gesture ot otherwise, are those things they deserve or that one thinks they are worth. You can only give according to the level of the receiver. At least so says Kate Okowo.

Lol!!!!

OMOYAJOWO KOLAWOLE 400 LEVEL STUDENT OF EKITI STATE UNIVERSITY SLAMS GOVERNOR FAYOSE- PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS!

Peter Ayodele Fayose
OMOYAJOWO KOLAWOLE (JUSTICE OF THE MOOT COURT FACULTY OF LAW EKSU) WRITES FAYOSE.

AN OPEN LETTER TO GOVERNOR AYODELE FAYOSE ON YOUR RECENT PUBLIC STATEMENT DURING YOUR SON'S CONVOCATION CEREMONY IN COVENANT UNIVERSITY.

Your Excellency, do permit me to firstly appreciate the role you have been playing in the recent contemporary Nigeria politics particularly ensuing a vibrant opposition stance against the ruling political party at the federal level.Though your critique are sometimes tainted with some moral and legal shortcomings but nevertheless, you have adequately become a watchdog on the perceived excesses and the functional inadequacies of the federal government. More importantly, I salute your courage to intend contesting for the office of the Nigeria president whether in the forthcoming 2019 election or subsequent general elections in the nearest years.

Your Excellency, I always acquaint myself with all your activities in Ekiti State and public utterances on issues bordering on the federal government, some of which I agree with you and vice versa. However, the most recent of your public statement cum political criticism during your son's convocation ceremony in convenant university which is the crux of this letter has geared my apt reaction as it indirectly affects me and many other students in public universities particularly in Ekiti State University.

Thus, I have decided to address you on it and make it viral moreso that you have a penchant for making all issue public.
With special reference to the Premium Times Newspaper on the 21st of July, 2016, you were reported to have said that public office holders should stop sending their children to universities outside Nigeria, as all your children are schooling within Nigeria. And that it is by this act of yours, if emulated by other public officers holders, our educational institution can be given the much needed attention, improved and refined.

However your opinion may seem right to you given your intellectual assessment, I make bold to say that you have no moral justification to vindicate your self of such disease that have afflicted many of the Nigerian politicians. It is axiom in law that he who comes to equity must come with a clean hand.

DO YOU HAVE A CLEAN HAND IN THIS REGARD?

ABDULSAMAD ISIYAKU RABIU'S BUA GROUP GETTING SET TO OWN 9 MOBILE

Alhaji AbdulSamad Isiyaku RABIU



The supremely made man from Kano State of Nigeria sits atop a vast conglomerate with HQ in Lagos, Nigeria which he established in 1988. Since that 29 years ago now, that brand has grown in leaps and bounds. Making her Executive Chairman, Alhaji ABDULSAMAD ISIYAKU RABIU, a billionaire, in fact one of Nigeria's 'certified richest'.

As at 2016, his personal wealth was valued at a considerable $1 billion plus. But now according to Forbes that valuation might be a bit less now, due to many factors.

His company "BUA GROUP", which is into Cement Production, Sugar Refining, Rice, Port Operations and has a vast Real estate portfolio his bidding to take over the former ETISALAT which recently became 9 Mobile, after the former parent company, Etisalat of the UAE, divested all stakes in the company and left.

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE ALLEGED BOMBARDIER GLOBAL EXPRESS XRS SUPPOSEDLY BOUGHT BY ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU FINALLY OUT

ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU

You know that in our last report, we had asked the question about the "truth behind the alleged new purchase" of a "BOMBARDIER GLOBAL EXPRESS XRS" a super private jet by the Governor Emeritus of Lagos in the person of the highly revered and much respected Nigerian politician Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who was first a Senator in Lagos, before going on to become a 2 term Governor of the State.

We have since that initial report gotten fillers from the camp of the former Governor and National leader of the ruling APC that, the supposed purchase and ownership of such a private jet especially at this time, is a "complete figment of the imagination" of those who are trying to spread the "false rumour".

According to the gist, those trying to spread the news have done so delibrately, to cause disaffection and unnecessary trouble, as there was nothing of the kind, especially a jet at such a time like this at the value of "$60million dollars", which is quite a super sizeable chunk that could achieve so much for any state currently, especially in the kind of "economic situation" that the country is facing right now, where most state governments are especially grappling with the dilemma of paying many months backlog of salaries.

From what those who got to us painted, the rumour is complete bollocks and so far away from the truth. According to the source, ASIWAJU as the very popular Jagaban of Borgu is referred to, is a "man of the people" in every sense of the word, especially one who cares for and about the people, so much to the extent that, even if he had the money to make such a purchase right now, he wouldn't even do it.

We believe them. 

OBASANJO- TRUMP IS GOD'S DIVINE WILL

Chief Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo
President Donald Trump

The former 2 Times leader of the Nigerian State, first as a Military Head of State and secondly as a 2 term Civilian President, Chief Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo GCFR, recently in far away South Africa, posited that the current President of the United States of America, Mr. Donald Trump is the President of that country by the "divine will of God".

He made the statement in far away Pretoria, the Capital of South Africa at an event at the French Embassy in that country.

According to the respected former President, the turnout of the things in the USA is not the makings of any man, but all rather according to the plans of the God.

He said and we quote "though the African continent still needs "Foreign Direct Investments" the time has come for the continent to show the rest of the world, that it can take charge of her own future". 

He went further to reiterate that "The fact that America produced a Trump in this day and age, means Americans are as human as we are". 

"I am not justifying what African leaders are doing. If our leaders are doing wrong, we should say that they are wrong". 

"Trump has come by "Divine Will" so that America can be humbled and we can also learn a lesson. Nobody can do it for us, and it is all of us and if we do it, we will get it right".

WHAT'S THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU'S NEW $60 MILLION PURCHASE


ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU
Bombardier Global Express XRS

Inside the cabin

There's no Nigerian anywhere in the world that would deny not knowing who Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is. The title ASIWAJU speaks of a great and extraordinary leader of men. 

The man of exceptional influence one of those who orchestrated how the last Government of the PDP as led by Ex-president Dr. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan was ejected, is also the great Jagaban of Borgu, that's a title bestowed on him in the Northern part of Nigeria, to show how far extended his influence has reached. 

He is also the National leader of the ruling APC, A former Senator of the great state of Lagos, the former 2 time Governor of the state of aquatic excellence, Lagos and like it is said, Governor Emeritus of the same State. 

Unconfirmed report just reaching us has suggested that the great man might have just taken delivery of a brand spanking new "Private Jet", a "Bombardier Global Express XRS", said to be valued at about $60 million USD

SO WHERE NEXT FOR PROFESSOR BEN AYADE? IS HE GETTING SET TO JUMP SHIPS?

Professor Benedict Ayade

Ali Modu Sheriff

Ahmed Makarfi

This is probably a bit of a trying period for the Governor of Cross Rivers State, in the person of the very gregarious Professor Benedict Bengioushuye Ayade, as he has to make some major decisions quickly that could either make or mar is political career for good.

This is not about his growing feud with the Dame of Bakassi, in the person of Senator Florence Ita-Giwa (Mma Bakassi). Nor is it about some major issues that concerns the oil rich state.

No it has nothing whatsoever to do with that at all. This is a far more, much more important dilemma on the scale than that particularly unneccesary feud.

This has to do with a decision, that rests on the decision of the Supreme Court of Nigeria of recent, when the apex court in the country ejected and removed the former 2 term consecutive Governor of Borno State, Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff as the chairman of the PDP and declared as the "authentic Chairman" another former Governor, Ex-Governor of Kaduna State in the person of Alhaji Ahmed Makarfi.

SENATOR ANDY UBA GETTING SET FOR ANAMBRA'S GUBERNATORIAL BATTLE

Senator Emmanuel Nnamdi Uba
"Andy Uba"

It would most definitely be a battle royale extraordinary when the Anambra State Governorship election would hold, as the caliber of those set to battle each other seem to be getting more awesome and more impressive by the day.

Just yesterday, another "incredible personality", in the person of Senator Andy Uba, of the APC formerly of the PDP/Labour Party went to pick up the form signifying his intention with about 40 senators from the APC and many women and youths in tow, so as to be the representative of the APC in the upcoming battle of the titans.

IS THE EKITI APC PARTY SET FOR ANOTHER IMPLOSION AGAIN?

Segun Oni

Opeyemi Michael Bamidele

Congressman Bimbo Daramola

Once beaten twice shy is the common adage, so that saying presupposes that the next time, if that time ever comes that person would have learnt a lesson and would be better prepared or would have readjusted, especially via the knowledge one has acquired via experience.

As it seems right now, it's like the APC which is the opposition party in Ekiti State, where PDP's own enfant terrible, in the person of his excellency, the executive Governor of Ekiti, Mr. Ayodele Peter Fayose reigns supreme has not learnt their lessons at all.

Just like it happened a few years ago, where internal wranglings, inordinate ambition, greed, unnecessary desperation led to a foolish implosion, which broke the ranks and divided the party, much to the extent that everyone went to their different camps and dug deep, such a scenario is already gradually building up again. What happened then virtually allowed a grassroot mobiliser extraordinaire like Ayo Fayose to slamdunk the APC, blowing the party into smithereens along the way and coasting to an unprecedented and unmatchable victory, with them not even being able to win one local government, even though the party was the one on the seat.

THE AKINRUNTAN ROYAL FAMILY CELEBRATES 3 BIRTHDAYS IN ONE WEEK

Oba Fredrick Obateru Akinrutan
Femi Akinrutan
The Akinruntan Royal Family, led by their Patriarch, His Royal Majesty Oba Fredrick Obateru Akinruntan, are all in a major celebratory mood as we speak now.

First was the 70th birthday celebration of the respected monarch, who is said to be the wealthiest monarch in the whole of Nigeria and by extension one of the richest in Africa. The very impressive Royal Father, is the owner and Chairman of one of the biggest indigenous oil firms in Nigeria known to most as Obat Oil which is named after him.
In celebration of him clocking his new age, his very loving kids and family launched a foundation, "OBA AKINRUNTAN FOUNDATION" for him at the weekend in Igbokoda and through same foundation gave his subjects free medical treatments.

While the monarch's 70th birthday was on Sunday, July 16, 2017, his second very hardworking son, Prince Femi Akinruntan, the Managing Director of Obat Oil clocked 40 today, Tuesday, July 18, 2017. So by this birthday now, Femi has officially become a member of the "league of extraordinary gentlemen".

Known to most of his friends and associates as a very supportive and generous soul, Femi was expected to have rolled out the drums and also the red carpet in celebration of this 40th, but instead he had a quiet birthday. Although a bird whispered in our ears, that something more befitting might be upcoming in New York, USA very soon that would be private and very exclusive just to mark the coming of age.

Not still ending there, the king's daughter "Funmilayo", better known as "Layo" who is older than Femi also is adding a year tomorrow, wednesday, July 19, 2017. So it's 3-pronged royal celebration. So the monthvl of July from the 16th, 18th and 19th are special days in that royal household.

We at Maestro's Media are very happy to celebrate this family and wish them more good years ahead.

YOUNG PEOPLE BEWARE! ALL THESE JOB VACANCIES ABROAD COULD LEAD TO DEATH!


PLEASE BE WARNED. The stories written about below are gory ones and scary!

It is better to be cautious than to be stupid. Or better still it is best to err on the side of good judgement or still better, it is best to be alive than be a dead mutilated fool.

We don't know how far true the stories we are getting are, but we hear that there's a syndicate that has perfected a way to traffic gullible young men and especially women to their deaths.

According to the unconfirmed gist, people are lured by offers of jobs in foreign countries. The bait is that those so interested would earn hard currency like dollars, which because of the terrible recession has quadruple in value excessively. Once the damned ones take the bait, all is done to facilitate their traveling out of the country as quickly as possible, most often and most likely that might be their last trip ever.

Alas! Instead of the expected golden fleece and change of life and status, once they get abroad they are handed over to those paid to farm for "human organs"; These dastardly ones would kill such trapped ones brutally, in order to remove their kidneys, livers and all other organs they might want or need to remove for sale!!!
