Many call Mike Adenuga the silent billionaire. He had shown over the years that it was better to feel his presence than to see him.
Despite his great wealth and connections, he rarely appears in public.
One of Africa’s richest men, Adenuga heads several companies including Globacom and Conoil. He also shows his love for humanity by helping people in need.
Although she was mostly alone and only attended a few events, he always extended a generous hand to people from all walks of life.
Successful entrepreneurs also attach great importance to the development of art and culture.
For 16 years, he sponsored the prestigious Ojude Oba Festival, which is usually held to celebrate the people and culture of Ijebu.
The company has also enlisted many artists as brand ambassadors.
He does not hesitate to help those in need.
Not so long ago, veteran Yoruba actor Adewale Adeyemo, aka Baba Igbomina, recalled how Adenuga saved him from an early death from an illness. Adenuga paid his medical bills when he was diagnosed with lung, liver and kidney infections, he said.
He said the billionaire sent the check through his colleague Latin while he was in the hospital.
To highlight his penchant for seclusion, his daughter Oyin and Adeola Abayomi’s 2017 wedding was anything but ordinary.
Guests are warned not to take pictures or video footage of the event.
It should also be noted that Adenuga spent millions of dollars building the Alliance Française headquarters building, located in the Ikoyi area of Lagos.
In 2018, when French President Emmanuel Macron visited Nigeria for the official opening of the Center, he congratulated Adenuga on his valuable contribution to the honor of the French people as commander of the French Legion.
