•How he dotes over his wife, Daisy’s other children
Few men are wrought like Theophillus Y. Danjuma; few fathers to be precise. The retired Army general and billionaire mogul garnishes love with meekness and extends sweet, silky hands of affection to his loved ones. Danjuma does not discriminate in love and generosity to his children and step-children. Hence the step-father of Daisy Danjuma’s sons spares no love on the fruits of his ravishing wife’s first marriage. Two years ago, when Daisy Danjuma’s son, Yuki Omenai, got married to his heartthrob, Omobolanle Moriam Rotimi, Danjuma spared no expenses to throw him a lavish wedding ceremony. Yuki is Senator Daisy Danjuma’s son from her previous wedding to Henry Omenai.

Senator Daisy’s husband, the irrepressible and obscenely wealthy Gen. TY Danjuma (rtd) gleefully stepped into the groom’s father’s role. In fact, unless you were told, you would never have known that the immensely wealthy retired general did not sire Yuki because he made available his vast wealth and contacts to make his step son’s journey into matrimony a worthwhile, classy and beautiful experience. The Danjumas’ eye-popping holiday home in the upper crust area of Marbella was the venue. Though a small gathering, the wedding had in excess the components of an elaborate Nigerian party. The crowd was select and classy. The ambience was celestial in its gold draperies.

The drinks were vintage and in effusive supply. And the music was so good that even the typically taciturn general could not help but hit the dance floor. Interestingly, last weekend, T.Y Danjuma and his wife celebrated yet another son, Dr. Osagie Omenai’s marital union. Predictably, Danjuma conducted himself admirably to Daisy’s delight and the admiration of his stepchildren. Meanwhile, a lot of guests could not help asking what has happened to the biological father of the groom, Henry. Since Daisy abandoned him for greener pastures, not much has been heard about him. Sadly, apart from losing his wife to a more influential man, Henry seems to have also lost his sons too or, pray, why was he not at his sons’ wedding ceremonies?

Behind the rumour of Aliko Dangote’s sudden death, a humming bird sang discordant tunes with mischief and human ogres sought to thwart the gracious strokes of fate, in the life of Africa’s richest billionaire. The social space was recently cast in disarray as the Chairman of Dangote Group was pronounced death in what has since been denounced as mischievous plot of the magnate’s faceless enemies.

Family and friends of the renowned businessman suffered a scare in the wake of a malicious rumour of Dangote’s death. No sooner did the rumour hit the air than the social space exploded in panic as various phone lines, blogs and social networking sites caught on the buzz of the heartrending rumour. But contrary to rumours of his death, Aliko Dangote is alive. Very close sources to the businessman swiftly dispelled the rumour soon after it hit the airwaves, claiming authoritatively that Dangote did not die. It would be recalled that an online magazine, DW-TV3, reported that Aliko Dangote died in Germany.

However, Dangote arrived London, United Kingdom (UK) penultimate Friday night. He was at Aig Imokhuede’s 50th birthday party in Surrey on Saturday, September 24. Afterwards, his best friend, Femi Otedola, took him to the Stansted Airport where he flew to South Africa in the company of Sam Nwajoku and Niyi Adebayo. Sources close to Dangote revealed that, he received over 1,000 phone calls from family and friends seeking to confirm that he was hale and hearty.

American billionaire businessman and philanthropist, Bill Gates, was also on the phone with him for over 30 minutes purportedly to confirm that he was in good health. Thus contrary to the malicious rumour of his death, Dangote did not go where lazy peace hides her drowsy head; he did not for the sport of gossip and sensational media, increase the number of Africa’s illustrious dead.
