Laolu, the son of the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church Of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, is having a swell time with his fashion business named Wisemen Apparel and Duchess, which has shops inLondononEdgeware Road, one of the most expensive districts inLondonand on highbrow Opebi and Awolowo road inLagos,Nigeria.
But despite the huge amount of money expended on the top-scale boutique by Laolu, he was not happy that the outfit since its inception didn’t have a building of its own.
Global News learnt that he was so desperate to secure a building of his own, no matter how much in terms of money this would cost him. This we gathered made him to contact the owner of the building that housed his Opebi branch, anEdobusinessman who owns a popular printing press along Agidingbi very close Femi Kuti’s Shrine, pestering him to sell the building to him.
It was said that the owner initially felt that he was joking when he first made the proposition, but he started taking Laolu serious when he kept pestering him to sell the building to him.
Laolu was said to have offered him N200m, which was rejected. But Laolu promised that he was ready to jack it up, to secure the property at all cost.
This proposition was said to have baffled the owner, whose first name starts with letter A and surname with letter E, who wondered where the young man was getting the money from since he is not known to be a serious businessman, though he has his hands in many businesses aside from the boutique that is strictly for the rich.
