“Shade was the one who consolidated my empire. She walked in and solidified everything you see today…

I am holding these younger ones(Shade’s children) close so they don’t go astray like the older ones…

Shade goes to the factory by 7 am and comes back by 7 pm. She is in charge of everything you see in Eleganza…

Shade decorates my home and maintains it. I don’t know how she does it. I just walk in and see my home like this…

I will never take my company public. I will keep it in the family. My eldest daughter, (by Shade) she’s schooling in Europe but me and Shade bring her to Nigeria to come and know how the business works so she can take over…I hope she will not make a mistake like other children…

I am teaching my children(by Shade) experience and skill. Handwork, engineering, and carpentry a valuable skills. I need them more in my company even more than an accountant. Technology can do that but man needs to still man machines. I am teaching my children that. They will take over from me and Shade… ‘

I have properties all over Nigeria but the market is getting saturated now. Many people are in it. The young salary earners cannot afford homes now. I sell some of them to put in the factory. I hope my children will manage them better when they are done with school…’

‘I am learning technology now but I have left most of it to my children. I like them around me. They teach me a lot of things. My children with Shade are smart…’

‘I have been married to Shade for 20 years. She gave me 4 beautiful children. They are good children. They are not like the rest…’
