For billionaire businesswoman, Hajia Bola Shagaya, the year 2018 , no doubt,Â has begun on a good note.
This is in contrast to 2017, when she was in the news afterÂ the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, went after her because of her closeness to a former First Lady, Patience Jonathan, who was accused of money laundering.
Though the case is yet to be decided, the Kwara State-born billionaire is having a ball. Recently, eminent personalitiesÂ from around the world gathered to celebrate with her.
Earlier in March, her son, Oluwaseun, marriedÂ Damilola,Â the beautiful daughter of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, in colourful ceremonies.
As if that was not enough, another of her sons, Kabir,Â also walked down the aisleÂ with his beau, Amina Buba.Â Just like the first one, this wedding was classical and extravagant. The wedding, which held at the Landmark Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, proved that the beautiful woman is powerful and highly connected as she brought those that matter in the social circle to the event. She also spared no expense in giving them the treat of a grand celebration.
Kabir is the CEO of Zippy Logistics, a company that provides high quality services in the areas of procurement, logistics and warehousing to small and medium scale markets in Nigeria.
The high-net-worth woman is spunky. This has helped her to remain in the business arena for so long and the lady of endearing entrepreneurial skills is fast becoming one of the most powerful women in Nigeria, not just in business. Shagaya, who can be described as a glittering star in the business firmament, is generous to a fault.
Indeed, if the history of billionaires in Africa were to be documented, her name would stand out. She is a rare gem, who set out to achieve greatness in life.
