Nigerian billionaire son, Paddy Adenuga, who has been making headlines lately is back again and this time he is claiming that at 29 and without his family’s help, he almost bought Chevron Oil and Gas company in Netherlands.
Paddy Adenuga who once wrote that he can’t date a lady who wigs and lacefronts, tweeted;
‘Working on a write up to post on my twitter and my instagram on when i was 29 and entered a bid to buy Chevron’s entire oil & gas business in the Netherlands – on my own with no help from my family i came so close to winning but hope i can pass on some wisdom from my failure’
Here’s a screenshot of Paddy Adenuga’s tweet;
Well here’s a quick fact you should know about successful business tycoon, Mike Adenuga’s children. Mike Adenuga married to Titi Joyce Adenuga, interestingly has 8 children with different women.
The 64-year-old man seems to lead a healthy and exciting life. One has to wonder if he plans to stop at eight children. But for right now, his list of heirs to the Adenuga wealth looks like this;
1. Ms. Adetutu Oyindamola Emilia
This is the first child of a tycoon. She is a graduate of the department of Sociology, is fond of Yoruba movies and was once a board member at her dad’s establishment. Oyindamola is currently in the trading business in Georgia. She is happily married to Ade Olufeko. Their beautiful wedding took place this year.
2. Eniola Adenuga
This is Mike Adenuga son. The press has reported countless stories of his wild lifestyle as he often visits nightclubs and just loves to have fun. Last year, there was a bit of a scandal in his life when it was reported that he refused to marry his baby mama. The woman then limited his contact with his child.
3. Sade Adenuga
This is the youngest daughter of a tycoon. In 2015, she became a graduate of a British university, where she received a degree in Law. At her graduation, her sister and mother came to support her. Mike was so proud of her that he gifted her with a Range Rover.
4. Adeniyi ‘NiyiBoy’
Not much about this Adenuga’s son can be found on the internet. It is safe to say, just like his father, he is a little shy and does not really care for the public attention.
5. Prince Michael Babajide
He is also called Mike Jr. He holds the position of the chairman in Globacom Limited and Conoil Plc. At one point, Mike Jr. was a director in Equitorial Trust Bank.
He was a student at North Western University and Pace University. Both educational institutions are in US. He received his degree in Business Administration. He was evidently given what he needed to create and even surpass his father’s wealth. Michael once admitted he will be proud to take over from his dad someday.
Mike Jr. is also interested in film production. But unfortunately, he cannot put a lot of effort into this hobby because he is very busy with the family business. He seems to be a man with a good head on his shoulder. He also understand the value of integrity. He once said in an interview that the one thing that is important to him is diligence.
He is another son of the billionaire who was lucky to be born into a wealthy family. Recently he made it clear that he plans to be successful in his own right. Paddy said he would not demand or depend on his family’s wealth. He would rather work very hard and live his life knowing that he earned every dime from his own sweat and talent. He expressed these thoughts on his Twitter account. It looks like we can expect really great things from Paddy as he is out there making his own name and standing up as his own man.
7. Abimbola Beenu
Since 2015, Abimbola has been acting as the Executive Director in the Conoil Plc.
8. Bella Adenuga
This talented girl managed to enter the university at the age of 14. As with all of Adenuga’s children, she is well-educated and is now a Group Executive Director. Now she is happily married. In 2010, she tied the knots with Jameel Adetokunboh Disu in a luxurious wedding. She revealed that when they first met, she did not tell him her real name and hid the fact that she is a daughter of one of the richest man in Nigeria. We guess she wanted to make sure the man loved her for who she is.
She once had to deal with the issue of being overweight. After losing the extra pounds, she now looks really beautiful. She said that her father helped her to achieve her weight goals. Now she leads a healthier lifestyle and goes to the gym very often.
