Top businesswoman, Princess (Dr) Toyin Kolade’s heart is heavy. She has been in a grieving mood, following the death of her mother, Madam Comfort Adejuyigbe (Iya Alaiyeure) on Monday, October 16, 2016 at 92.
The late Madam Adejuyigbe is described as a righteous and prayerful mother who dedicated her life to the worship of the Almighty God till she breathed her last.
A family source revealed that she will be buried at her home town, llesa, Osun State, early next year.
In life, the late octogenarian did all within her humanly possible power to raise her children in the way of the Lord. In return, the children were (and still are) a source of pride to the family. For instance, Kolade is a successful businesswoman and socialite of note. She has her hands in many pies, including oil and gas, interior decor, real estate, maritime and hospitality, among others.
A woman of means, she commands deep respect from young and old, especially in the political, social and business circles. More importantly, she is also in tune with the modern trends in the fashion world. Call her a show- stopper and you will only be stating the obvious.
Kolade, Managing Director, Fisolak Global Resources, Fisolak Royal Furniture and Arikay Oil and Gas, joined the millionaire club at a relatively young age of 21, having learnt the ABC of doing business from her late mother.
With so much confidence, hope and clear vision, she laid the foundation of her business empire some years back. Today, Iyalaje, as she is famously called, is an inspiration to several others. No doubt, it takes a woman of gut as Kolade to thrive in the ever unpredictable business climate in Nigeria.
