“Marriage is a wonderful institution, but who wants to live in an institution?” stated Groucho Marx, U.S. comedian and film actor in a state of profound introspection. Rilwan Osagie is probably wrought of a similar disposition.

That Rilwan is an abundantly blessed dude whose profile has appreciably assumed folkloric status in recent times is no secret but that he seems to have chosen a life of perpetual bachelorhood is a persistent cause of worry to his family, friends and even business associates. Rilwan, the younger brother of Keem Bello- Osagie, is the founding member of staff of FSDH and was appointed the Managing Director and CEO in 1998 after serving as the General Manager and Chief Operating Officer for two years. He is endowed with everything that could make any young woman fall head over heels in love with him yet, despite his undeniable appeal, Rilwan seems to be beating a perpetual retreat from the aisle to the consternation of his family and friends.

This, we learnt, might not be unconnected with his elitist disposition which tends to overwhelm many ladies and cause a great deal more to scurry from him even as they ironically crave for his undivided love and attention. At over 40, Rilwan is well-heeled and sociable; the dark-hued dude has many ladies skulking for his attention. Not a few times did ladies lunge for each other’s jugular in desperate bid to have him for keeps. Now his friends are seriously putting him under pressure to settle down. After all age is not on his side anymore and all his younger ones are happily married.
