Tosyn Bucknor-Boyer, is the younger, very effervescent sister of top events manager and CEO of Zapphaire Events, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe. The 37 year old OAP is also a good friend to many stars and celebs, who loves her so much.

The kind-hearted soul, who was always very lively, with a very contagiously good spirit passed on untimely yesterday. She was discovered dead by her husband of 3 years Aurelien Boyer, upon returning from work, which is a very sad development.

Though the cause of death was not immediately known, it is suspected that she might have succumbed to rigors arising from crisis as a sickle cell anemia victim/sufferer, with no one around to immediately tend to her it must have been somewhat!!!

The Unilag graduate has been a popular OAP for very many years now and in fact, one of the most intelligent one at that.

She would be sorely missed by all, especially her fans who loves to hear her beautiful voice most often on radio and most especially also her close knit family.

May her gentle soul find rest. May God grant all her loved ones, the husband and her immediate family members and friends, colleagues etc the fortitude to bear the unfortunate, pretty painful and untimely loss.

Death o death,. Thou hath struck again, taking away very untimely at that and very painfully too, a gorgeous and beautiful soul.

You have again stricken the hearts of Tosyn's loved ones and have caused them unbearable anguish, by taking away a world star too fast.

Though, you have supposedly won again. But be very mindful, for your own demise/death also beckons too. As you cannot escape it. And thy own pain would be forever and eternal.

Her wedding  (traditional wedding and engagement) was just a few weeks old, in October of 2018 to be more precise. And she did loads to keep it as quiet as possible, so as not to bring too much attention to it or herself. It was a beautiful family affair, with few friends also on attendance. That's talking about the delectably beautiful former girlfriend of Wizkid, Tania nee Omotayo, who is now married at least traditionally to her beau, Sumbo who is a partner with Armani at Buzzbar, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Now we know why the beautiful lady who is the boss at Ziva Lagos, her own lifestyle brand that's into fashion kept it all on the low-low. She was several weeks pregnant and is currently on the 9 months course and anytime soon, we expect to start seeing the protruding belly, which is the tell-tale sign of a well consummated relationship. We saw the growing belly at the #gtbankfashionweekend2018 when she was going home slightly exhausted.

So latest before the middle of the new year-2019, we are set to welcome insha Allah a new baby or babies, if they are more than one into Tania's new household.

The couple deserves a big hug and congratulations. It meant that Sumbo was a good goal scorer, long before the officially sanctioned game began. Kudos Tania for being a good goal keeper. 


@mbplingerie is pleased to announce the founder/CEO of @tiannahsplacempire Ms. Toyin Lawani as their brand spanking new "Brand Ambassador", the gorgeous mother of 2 with the bodacious body structure is surely a good pick for the brand.

We all know her as,
The Hottest Mom in Business🌟
The Queen of Hustle 🌟
The king of All Queens 🌟
The Fashion Mogul 🌟
The fashion icon🌟
The Serial Entrepreneur⭐
Beauty with Brains🌟
One of the Most promising Moguls Of our Time👑
A Book Author🔥 #Beunstoppable-TheBusinessmogulsGuide
A reality show star via @Ebonylifetv #TiannahsEmpire, adding this new deal to the feathers on her well worn cap/crown is a big move & big deal too and most definitely a added value or should we say, value added.

Nothing seems like it's impossible for this ultimate mama jammer, who sees obstacles as stepping stones to higher heights. A super hardworking mother of 2 adorable kids, both of whom she's already training to own their own spaces too. A major business mogulette by all standards, owning at least 30 known businesses and running them all successfully too.

Is it easy to be a Fashion designer to the stars, celebrities and dignitaries? And she caters to a very large number of them without necessarily making too much noise about it. Is it not a big deal to be an award winning stylist of note too? You have to be very creative to excel as one, especially in a cutthroat environment!

Some would claim there's nothing extraordinary about opening a restaurant, but they forgot that some have tried same and failed at it. So kudos to her for getting it right. She runs a very successful spa business, having as clients many top names she would prefer to keep under wraps. People don't even know she well trained personally to do that. Just imagine that her fashion academy, where future top designers come to learn the trade, is always packed out with students. These are just a few things to say about how she's holding down very well.

The unstoppable serial entrepreneur is known to many as Tiannah which is her daughter's name, but which she adopted as her business name. But to very many she is just plain Toyin Lawani, the super star, who under the veneer is so hardworking and so focused many can't even keep pace with her. Every other day she still launches one new thing or the other, as she keeps expanding her business frontier and horizon. And before you all know it, Forbes would soon take notice and give that ultimate stamp of approval and accolades.

The gorgeous risk taker who believes quite fervently that the sky is just the beginning, has just gotten a lucrative endorsement deal and another feather added to her cap and she would be bringing to you various, super sexy and steamy collections from the brand known as "mbplingerie".

It promises to be caliente!!!!!

Check out her hot-hot shoot here.

VP Osibanjo launches TraderMoni in 3 additional Lagos markets

The Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN launched the Federal Government's N10,000 Naira interest free loans, otherwise known as Trader-Moni to traders in three more Lagos markets on Monday.

VP Osinbajo who led other Federal and State Government officials to Ikotun, Igando and Ile-Epo markets also urged the traders to make judicious use of the loans to secure more from Federal Government.

While interacting with the traders, the VP said the objective of the scheme would be defeated, if traders do not repay the loan to secure more from the Federal Government.

"This is one particular initiative this administration has put in place to help address the plights of those at the grassroots, which is to help you grow your businesses and make lives meaningful to you and your families.  That's why we have ensured that there is no collateral at all and that when you repay the loans, you can secure more from the Government because it shows you are serious with what you are doing, " he said.

Some of the traders who were interviewed, applauded the initiative but pleaded for more loans saying that they would be willing to boost their trades and businesses with as much fund as possible that's made available to them.

Yemisi Babalola, a salt trader in Ikotun market expressed her readiness to invest the money in her trade.  She said that although she would have loved for the money to be more, she would nonetheless make judicious use of the initial fund so as to qualify for more loans.

Similarly, Jide Akanni, a butcher at Ile-Epo market, said that it took the actual arrival of the Trader-Moni officials in the market, for him to be convinced that it was true.  He said having been registered and his account credited, he now believes the scheme is real.

"When they say Trader-Moni, I had always thought it was one of those political gimmicks. But today,  I am convinced that it is real.  As I repay the initial loan given,  I have been assured of prompt increased money," Akanni said.

Gradually and steadily, this very well thought out initiative of the FG is reaching more and more people.

Osibajo, Ambode Launch Trader-Moni, Urges Recipients to Use Loan Judiciously

It was an ecstatic moment mid afternoon 2 days ago as the Vice President of the nation, Prof. Yemi Osibajo unveiled the Federal Government’s Trader-Moni initiative, a Government enterprise and empowerment programme to petty traders at the Ketu and Adebayo markets in Lagos.

The Vice President who was accompanied by the Lagos state Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode and the All Progressive Congress’ (APC) Lagos State governorship candidate for the 2019 election, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, toured the markets to the delight of all and interacted with the market men and women assuring them that the government will increase the loan to each individual provided they use what they have gotten  judiciously and are also faithful in paying back the sum as at when due.

Reacting to the Government’s gesture at the Ketu Market, the Babaloja Ikosi, Ikosi-Ketu market, Chief Akanbi Taofeek said by remembering the petty traders, the Federal government have taken the right step in the right direction. He went further to say that  although, the amount involved is small, the Babaloja said it would still go a long way to ease the suffering of the down trodden Nigerians and traders who are very much in need of such interventions. The Babaloja assured the Government of good support to ensure that the recipients keeps to what he calls “very encouraging repayments terms”.

Speaking in the same vein, the Iyaloja of the Ketu market, Mrs. Amope Adesanya, urged the Government to sustain the tempo with which they have come out to unveil the loan assistance to the common traders without the usual insurmountable requirements by Microfinance Banks and similar organizations.  Hence the desire of the market associations to support the government to ensure that the money goes round to the traders.

Some of beneficiaries who spoke on their experiences included - Ismaila Orilowo and Sunday Adekunle, both Meat Sellers at the market. While Orilowo noted that the initial loan sum of N10,000 may have been too small for his kind of business, but he still praised the Government for at least starting something.  “If such initiative had been on, all the while, a lot of economic burdens will have been eased for the common Nigerians”  Orilowo who is a cluster leader in the meat section of the market confirmed that at least a dozen traders in his team have received the money.

Elfreda Asuquo-Edet, a vegetable  trader who revealed that she had declined to register with the Trader–moni officials on their first visit to the market because she had thought it was another scam, she however expressed joy that she has benefited and invested the sum in improving her trade.  “I like the condition because it’s not going to stress me at all”, she said.

Another beneficiary, Blessing Augustine said, I am happy the Government at long last has thought about the masses. The money will help in my trade and the way it is structured, it will encourage beneficiaries to pay back on time so that they will qualify for the next step of bigger sum”.

The trader-moni initial loan sum is N10,000 for 6 months to be paid back at N430 every week. And the total sum payable thereafter is N10,250. Thereafter the trader can access N15,000 for another six month and pay back N15,375. The trader can then apply for N20,000 for 6 month with pay back sum being N21,000. If the customer is faithful he can obtain N50,000 with pay back sum at N52,000 while the highest loan sum is N100,000.

The VP and his entourage made up of the Lagos state Governor, Akinwumi Ambode and the APC Lagos state governorship aspirant for the 2019 general election, Babajide Sanwo-Olu also visited other markets too.

Speaking also about the project, the Babaloja of Adebayo Market and Bariga LCDA, Alhaji Rasaq Rabiu said the presidency made a thoughtful decision in remembering the traders and giving them the financial support which will boost their businesses.

According to him, “we thank God; the Vice President came here because of the money they are giving to the traders’, money to maintain their markets so they can make profit. Those who collected this money will not curse the Government rather they will praise them. We will continue to pray for the  Government to continue and do more than this”.

Mr Rasaq added that the traders have been sensitized that the money is a loan which they must return within six months which will enable them to acquire the next phase.

A catfish seller, Miss Adeola Oyekanmi who got her money within three days of registering for the project couldn’t hide her feelings as she hailed the Government for considering them in the project. “We started hearing about it since Friday that we should come and register and after registering we got a message and the next was a credit transfer alert. I got the money today. The money will improve my market, I am selling fish and I have N50,000 , if I add the N10,000 to it, it will boost my market, It will help me a lot, she said.

Also, a stock fish seller, Mrs Unwachukwu Ebere said she was happy on hearing about the money though she did not know it is a loan. “ I have collected my money. The money will boost my business. I am doing business with 5,000, if I add the 10,000 to it, it will surely help me.

The Iyaloja of Adebayo Market, Bariga who was also a beneficiary of the Trader-Moni initiative said the money is a good way of encouraging the traders and it will help them. According to her “The loan is good. Giving N10,000 is better than nothing.  She added that the interest rate is very small which should not be the problem for people who have collected it.

A trader, Mrs Ogunmayi who specializes in selling shoes and bags said though the money is good for petty traders, but she thinks the Government should come up with projects that will benefit those in her category.

Speaking to the press on the project, a representative of GDM, a consulting company for the Trader-Moni initiative, Mr. Olarenwaju said the information and intergration of the people towards the project has been on for almost three months. He said people were skeptical about it at first, after telling them because they are not seeing the money immediately then. He is however delighted that the people were not disappointed.

The Trader-Moni initiative is supported by the Bank of Industry and the loan repayments can be done at any of the major banks likes of Union Bank, Jaiz Bank, Fidelity Bank, GTBank, Sterling Bank, UBA, Heritage Bank, Wema Bank, Ecobank and Stanbic Bank.

He was a colossus in the hospitality sector of Nigeria and a well respected industrialist too. He also invested very much in real estate, insurance sector and manufacturing.

The Ide-Ahaba of Asaba, one of the most respected titles in Asaba, passed on last night, Monday, November 5, 2018 surrounded by loved ones.

Since he is a titled chief of his domain, his demise must first be reported to the Asagba-in-council first, before his death would now be announced officially.

He died aged 87, having being born on March 20, 1931. He established the SIO Group of Companies, a conglomerate that is into properties, hospitality, shipping, banking & finance, Oil & Gas, Commodities, Tourism & other sundry investments. He used to own the defunct Post Express Newspapers. He also owns the Grand Hotel Asaba, probably the biggest and the best hotel in that part of Nigeria.

Apart from his traditional titles/honour, he holds the national honours of Commander of the Order of the Federal Republic and Member of the Order of the Federal Republic.

Apart from his extensive investments and vast pocket, one major thing he is well known for is that he is a philanthropist par excellence. A renowned philanthropist at that who is super well recognized all over Africa for his charity. He would be greatly missed.

It's so obvious that Princess Shyngles, the Gambian bombshell ex-girlfriend of Ghana's former star footballer, Michael Essien, the lady with the ultra supersonic body, especially waist (waste), hip and backside has got no chills whatsoever.

For Michael's wife to have dared to move or pack out of her marriage because of her, she thinks the wife deserves the title of the "dumbest woman".

Michael Essien & estranged wife, Akosua Puni

Shyngle shades Michael's wife for leaving her marriage and matrimonial home because of insecurities. Princess Shyngle a couple of months back had revealed that she and the former star footballer dated for a while, even as he was married to his wife Akosua Puni. She however confessed that she parted with him on discovering he was married with kids.

Fast forward to more recently, in fact a few days back, when the news hit town that Akosua had left her husband over that somewhat old revelations by Shyngle.

The Gambian actress and entertainment star who is a frequent visitor in Nigeria, whose profile reads the Gambian princess 🇬🇲multiple award winning actress, came for the wife saying "if you leave your husband's house because he's still in love with his ex and can't let go, then you should definitely receive the" 'dumbest wife of the year award'.

Mere looking at the body of the Gambian Princess, self titled of truly from the royal family, we do not actually know, just looking at the structure of the lady alone its quite obvious that she can be a pain the ass for anyone without the strength of a god!!!


Chief Anthony Anenih, one of the most influential chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party from 1999 to 2016 who was widely-known as “Mr. Fix-It,” died last week, aged 85.

A veteran of various political parties since the early 1980s, President Olusegun Obasanjo appointed him Minister for Works in his first term. He subsequently served twice as the chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees, and of the Board of the Nigeria Ports Authority.

His passing was followed by a heavy avalanche of tributes as frontline politicians praised the Edo State-born politician. Among others, President Muhammadu Buhari, former Presidents Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan, and PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar called him a “patriot.”

He was a political colossus and a PDP hero and legend. But he was not a patriot by any stretch of the imagination.

But Buhari extolled him as a “frontline figure” in Nigeria’s political history.

Obasanjo called him “…a national icon and authentic role model…a patriot and a nationalist of no mean order…” Jonathan said Anenih’s name “would continue to appear in gold whenever the history of this country is being rewritten.”

As a culture, we do not speak ill of the dead. Well, we ought never to speak blatant falsehood before God either or betray the living through flagrant hypocrisy. Anenih was clearly and particularly a PDP figure. He was a cold-blooded PDP-partisan who saw Nigeria through the eyes of his party; he never saw PDP through the eyes of Nigeria.

A patriot loves, asserts and defends his or her country passionately; Anenih’s passion was the PDP, right or wrong. To pronounce him a patriot insults both the term and Nigeria.

Did Anenih advocate an overriding public vision of Nigeria; if so, when, and what was it? What was his passion concerning uplifting Nigeria? What moved him to tears and what did he do about it?

Whom did he offend publicly in affirming right over wrong, ours over mine, day over night? Did he champion the cause of clean drinking water for every Nigerian…free and fair elections, free education or healthcare? Did he advocate libraries in towns and villages or opportunities for the gifted?

Was his combat in connection with maternal and child deaths nationwide?

More after the break.


First it was her good friend or should we say best mate, Amber Rose that came into Nigeria sometime back (in fact twice) and spent just a few hours and got paid good dollars in thousands before she immediately went back same day!!!! Long before that though in 2013, her former somewhat 'sister-in-law' Kim Kardashian had visited Nigeria too and was paid very handsomely for her whistle stop.

So most probably they must have passed on the message that, Nigeria is a goldmine, if they contact you, please no hesitation, just go mine your own and then come back home smiling. So BLAC CHYNA must have heeded that call as she would be landing Nigeria pretty soon and for just that night she would be taking home a cool 10 Million Naira!!!!

By the time one would add all the expenses to get her here alone, it could amount to not less than 20 Million Naira!!!! Still chicken feed for many Nigerians we suppose!!!!

BLAC CHYNA most likely would be flown in on either a PJ or first class on a commercial airline, that alone is a couple of millions, if she would stay the night, then accommodation and logistics and other sundry things would most definitely cost another couple of  millions!!Later some people would be yapping that we don't have money in this country ??? Abeggggi! !!

Need we tell you anything about BLAC CHYNA herself???? She was a former stripper/model turn 'good' businesswoman, making money from appearances and several other business concerns. Even very "unconfirmed gist" claims she with her best mate Amber Rose might actually be part of the promoters of a clothing brand-Fashion NOVA, which is one of the most successful fashion brands currently. For that we are not too sure, we don't think it's true. But we know for certain that she has her own make-up, better still adhesive eyelashes brand "Lashed by Blac Chyna which she launched in 2014 and then she also bought a salon/beauty bar in LA too in 2014. She owns some very pretty exotic and expensive super cars, meaning business must be pretty great.

She used to be Rob Kardashian GF/baby mama. Before Rob she was with Tyga, who she had a son called King Cairo with.

For this her appearance in Nigeria, she would be paid 10 million Naira as appearance fee for a "Private pool party in Abuja". The Party itself is slated for November 24, 2018. And Blac Chyna would appear for just 2 hours only (strictly)!!!! Meaning for every minute of her appearance she is earning about (N84000) that's 84000 per minute. We can bet that the payment for invitations would have hit the roof already, with many falling over themselves to be part of the exclusive crowd.

Even Blac Chyna whose real name is 'Angela Renee White' as acknowledged that she's coming to Nigeria. She announced it saying "Hello Nigeria!!! I am visiting the motherland finally to party with the playnetworkafr in Abuja. Shout out to Charlesofplay and hit him up for invites".

For the organisers of the private shindig, this is the 13th edition of the annual private party.

The pictures above show you all a glimpse of what BLAC CHYNA is bringing to Abuja!!!

Lagos anticipates the wedding to dictate to other weddings as powered by Captain Chris & Martha Najomo.

Bride and groom 

Martha Najomo in the league of Jewelry merchants, is in a special liga of her own bar none. Where she occupies, others salivates to reach.

She is the stupendously well-heeled, wife of celebrated airline Captain, Captain Chris Najomo. So now just imagine such a person, now hosting an event or an occasion, you must then understand that it would be 7 stars or 1st class extra premium all the way.

So come January 3 of the new year, that's 2019, just as people are still thanking the Almighty for keeping them good and great into the new year, all roads barring any unforeseen circumstances, would lead to the Balmoral Hall inside the Federal Palace Hotel compound, on Ahmadu Bello Road, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The who-is-who of the society, those who make things tick and tock, those that help to garnish occasions by adding spice and sauce, those who help to transform events or occasions from ordinary to extraordinary have been quietly notified to keep the date and like eagles that they are, they would all converge powerfully at the venue for the traditional wedding and engagement ceremony of the daughter of Martha and her husband.

By every yardstick you might want to mention, this 2019 year opener of an event, would be one by which many subsequent events and occasions would be measured or judged. The couple involved are no small fry and they don't do things in small measure at all, especially as it concerns one of their kids that's so well loved. We hear that all that can be done to make the event a one in town is been done.

Those who matter to the families have been notified long ahead already and so they have been availed the long opportunity to prepare ahead, so there wouldn't be any excuse (s) not to standout like a million gems. The Najomo's daughter-Christabelle by name would be joined on the date traditionally to her handsome beau, a Kenyan born US based Chemical Engineer by name Zaccheus. This is the event that would have all and sundry in attendance. The subsequent white wedding is a more like a private do, that would be in Dallas, Michigan, the US of A. The promised society wedding has been tagged Zella 2019.

The 56 year old stand out mother of the bride, by name Martha Eseoghene Najomo is the owner of the exclusive, Seraphina Gems, which is renowned for being the stockists of some of the most exclusive gems and jewelries in West Africa. She would be 56 on November 24, 2018. She is from Umolo in Delta State. The exquisite beauty and dresser par excellence, holds an NCE, from College of Education, Abraka and she also holds a BA and Masters in Public Administration, her husband is the famous Cap. Chris Najomo. And both are the parents of 7 adorable kids. Martha is also a grandma too. She started her successful business in Gems trading 8 years ago, March 31, 2010. She has been in business though for 24 years.


She's undoubtedly one of Nigeria's authentic 'influencers', if you doubt that pedigree, sign her on to see if you would be proven correct or wrong. For one to have 2.1 million followers now in Nigeria ain't no joke at all, even we our self attests to that fact. For you to better understand it, Linda Ikeji is just 2.5 million followers, while the famous instablog9ja is just 1.7million.

The totally in your face celebrity, OAP, author, businesswoman is a Scorpion, star sign Scorpio without a doubt. She loves been seen, she enjoys the attention that fame and stardom brings and she obviously must be smiling to the banks for it.

She has just clocked 34, that calculates to mean she came to this plain in 1984, and in just 30 plus years of existence, she has seen, still seeing, she's done a bit and she's still doing more and she's conquering, more and more everyday. What she's packed already into her 34 years of existence, might take some a whole lifetime to put together, so love her or not, she deserves some accolades.

She's one of those people that must have picked the Kardashian family as a model, especially Kimberly Kardashian-West and Kylie Jenner as models. Though one can simply argue that those 2 or the entire family loves attention. That they seek and crave the attention to the point of craziness, but let's look at it objectively and also from the business point of view, while many might not necessarily like them, while many might just see them through the moral compass and don't see them as exact moral models, they all without a shadow of doubt are millionaires with far-flunged influences. In fact, some are multimillionaires many times over and one in under just a decade is actually on the verge of becoming a dollar billionaire pretty soon!!!!

So like the Kardashians, so is Omotoke (a child worthy of care) Makinwa, good or bad attention, attention is just what it is, attention. And she's just smiling home to the banks for it, not necessarily minding whose ox is gored.

Oluwayemisi Haleemat Busari

It is quite obvious that come 2019, as it concerns the Gubernatorial election in Lagos State, the state also known to the world as the State of Aquatic excellence, the state many often refers to as "Eko for show", come that election, it ain't gonna be a walk-over as some have already contemplated!!!

It is like suddenly, the battle cry "awake O sleeping giant", has resonated very well and has gotten to the major opposition and they have awoken somewhat, and are gradually bringing out the bird steadily from their pocket at their own pace without being bamboozled!

It is obvious now by all indications that the opposition, especially the main opposition, which is the PDP, are getting set for a major battle with the APC. And to downplay them, or to belittle them would be at the peril of the ruling party, the APC. What is now most obvious is that they seem to have taken their time to study the terrain very well and may be willing to give it all that it takes to wrest power from the APC, in what would be considered as the biggest upset in the history of Nigeria so far!!!

For now, things seem to be gelling for them too. From the little feelers that we have begun to get, they seem to be crossing their t's and dotting their i's and wants to unleash on the state, what she has never known nor experienced before. In fact in a way that the state has never expected before. So every one had better sit up tight!

For Jimi Agbaje aka JK, who we all had thought and felt was comatose and slow before, just with a few actions of him now, it's now gradually becoming apparent that he might have deliberately taken the position of the proverbial ram, who deliberately took many steps backward that the opponent misunderstood and misinterpreted as steps of fear, only to suddenly realize that the ram had actually done the reverse, just to go gain massive momentum for the massive charge to annihilate the opponent, who had miscalculated because of a false sense of entitlement and also because the Ram had actually also being in disguise all the while.

In the choice of the Deputy Governorship Aspirant, Jimi Agbaje might have applied an outstanding masterstroke of unimaginable proportion. First his choice in the person of 'Oluwayemisi Haleemat Busari' is spot on. Then also, her profile is intimidating by all standards. Then again that he picked a woman and such a one as he picked, really counts for a lot, unlike the male-male candidacy of the APC. And he was also very careful to also pick a Christian/Moslem ticket also too.

The fact is that, not only is Mrs. Oluwayemisi Busari brilliant, she could have stood for the Governorship itself herself, had she wanted or of she was a politician, but instead she is a technocrat in all facets. In fact we know her one-on-one and can attest to the fact that she's not a pushover by any means.

According to the information at our disposal, we heard that she didn't in any way or manner lobby at all to be nominated, but she was actually headhunted to find the most suitable, most perfect person to balance the equation JK and OB. Oluwayemisi Haleemat Busari, was born on September 24, 1964, making her 54 of illustrious heritage. Her late dad, Alhaji Ahmed Tijani Shehu Giwa from Isale Agoro Epe, was a successful businessman and the Vice-President of 'Jamatul Islammiya of Nigeria', while her mom Alhaja Muyibat Abeni Mopelola Giwa (nee Shonibare) also a very successful businesswoman, was a princess from the "Kosoko Royal family of Isale Eko, on the Lagos Island. The Epe & Isale Eko, Lagos Island factor means, Oluwayemisi Busari is a "native Lagosian true and true" and in some quarters, that actually means a whole lot,

Please peruse her impressive profile below---
