Kingmaker, shrewd business tycoon and slave trader, Efunporoye Osuntinubu Olumosa (1805-1887) went down in Lagos history as one of the most prominent personalities of this city.
As a result of her economic prowess, she was installed as the 1st Iyalode of Egbaland. In her time, she was the wealthiest woman in the Yoruba kingdom. Although originally from Egbaland (Abeokuta), Madam Efunroye Tinubu’s wealth spread across plantations which present-day Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) and Igb-Obi College (kola-nut plantation).
The Tinubu Family also has the distinguished honor of producing the first Muslim medical doctor in Nigeria- Abdulhamid Saka Tinubu (1901). The popular Saka Tinubu Street in Victoria Island is named after him.
It was from this legendary Tinubu family that Asiwaju Bolanle Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu’s (1952) lineage stems from. (Albeit, history has it that her two sons died from malaria).
Way back to my Centurion days. I started working for Centurion when I was 21. I worked their heavy checks on their MD-11s and A checks on their B747s. I learned a lot their about myself and what I could do and what I was willing to put up with. It’s one of the companies that molded me into appreciating the job I have right now!!!
2017, my first foray into Aston ownership. A 2012.25 V8VS.
Early ones were specced slightly better than the later ones, so things like carbon packs, boot straps, fuel filler caps were the upgraded items that would later become a spec option.
The revised steering rack and suspension made quite a difference over the regular Vantage, and to this day, it's one of my favourite cars. It wasn't the quickest, but the analogue feel through the wheel and the brake pedal is something new cars struggle to replicate. It also sounded wonderful, more so with a secondary decat.
161229 Winter is coming!
With Valentine's day just around the corner and it’s getting cold as the days goes by like it’s snowing on the inside. Good thing our Oppa/Bias is there to make our hearts flutter with just watching their videos.
Who doesn't like to experience some snow right? Comment down below! 😅😅* Video grabbed from @kringkim ‘s IG account
Since "Deal Or No Deal" has returned with a new season, here is a pic from 11 years ago this week when I went to NYC to see some friends and visit a couple of radio shows. After one of the shows I happened to go to NBC.
I’m coming for everything I know I’m worth! We create a life we feel we are worthy of... it’s that simple! I’ve woken up religiously everyday since Sept 2017 and worked on my mindset. I went from someone who had no goals to someone who had ideas which don’t even exist in the world. I’ve always loved the underdog race. I’ve always loved people trying to define my future due to the lack of their success. I’ve always had an angry gladiator in my head screaming try me. Monitoring with a hand signal, “Let them come”. I used to see it as such a bad aggressive trait. I was so wrong... it’s hungry! The wolf on top of the hill will never be as hungry as the wolf climbing the hill. I’ve always been climbing. I didn’t come this far to omg come this far. Nothing or no one will get in my way... not even me!
