There is wisdom in the phrase ‘there is more to a name than just the name itself’. The name Folorunsho Alakija is more than just a name, it is an Institution.
Our cover girl for the July edition of TW Magazine is the Richest Black Woman in the World. She is worth over 3.3 Billion U.S Dollars in Net, according to Wikipedia and is 300 Million Dollars richer than Oprah Winfery says the Ventures Africa Reports released recently.
Well, enough of the figures. Who is Folorunsho Alakija?
She rocked our cover page and indeed the entire magazine with fabulous photos and daring revelations about her fame, wealth and more.
Would you believe the Billionaire oil mogul and philanthropist revealed that her wish is to have more money?
Surprised? Then grab your copy of the magazine to know why.
A popular celebrity and great fan of Alakija has tagged the July edition of TW “The single most important document on Folorunsho Alakija ever published” and she is right, Alakija has never before spoken so freely about her life and business before now. Even Wikipedia doesn’t have her birth date (month and day); yet she talked freely for the first time about her oil block, Mariam Babangida and devotion to God to our Publisher and Editor in Chief- Adesuwa Onyenokwe.
Many thanks to her for trusting us with her story.
