Hajia Bola Shagaya’s name evokes a lot of images in the minds of her fans: success, wealth, ambition, power, philanthropy and fellow-feeling, among others.
Even as she sets to mark her 59th birthday on Wednesday, October 10, her fans agree that her life is worth celebrating.
Though Society Watch gathered that the celebrations will be devoid of fanfare, she will among other things organise a prayer to appreciate the Almighty God for His faithfulness in her life.
A source close to the Kwara State-born businesswoman revealed that she had vowed not to throw any elaborate party until she clocks 60.
For some of her close family members and friends, the event will certainly afford them another rare opportunity to show love to the very stylish fashionable woman who has been recognized at home and abroad as a successful entrepreneur.
She is usually driven by an abiding quest to change the lives of her compatriots for the better. No one would tar her with the brush of a wheeler-dealer in her day-to-day business activities.
While she was growing up, she never allowed her pristine dream to be entombed; she pursued it with gusto. She is a strong woman who has never been hamstrung by any circumstance.
In fact, to her credit, the history of business in Nigeria cannot be written without her name appearing many times.
