How Obasanjo reconciled Rasaq Okoya and his estranged daughter, Biola

How Obasanjo reconciled Rasaq Okoya and his estranged daughter, Biola

Biola Okoya used to be the life and soul of the party, the woman who will never go home while there is one man, woman or glass of anything not yet drunk. But today, Biola Okoya has taken a radical turn. She is no longer the ‘ultimate rocker’ she used to be. Back when she used to cruise at full throttle on Nigeria’s fast lanes, no party hosted in Lagos and Abuja, Nigeria’s entertainment capitals is complete without the presence of Biola.

She rocked every party like it was her last. Then she disappeared from the scene prompting rumours about her whereabouts. Speculations are rife that the diehard party animal has been forced to beat a retreat from the fast lane due to a perceived fight between her and her father, Alhaji Rasaq Okoya, the chairman of Eleganza. What actually caused the fight between father and daughter could not be ascertained. No tangible answer was found even by the closest friends and confidants.

It was a bitter quarrel that polarized members of their family. In spite of interventions from different quarters, Alhaji Okoya refused to listen to anybody. For many years, Okoya and his daughter were not on talking terms until Biola decided to visit Olusegun Obasanjo, the former President, to talk to her father. According to Obasanjo, Biola came to him seeking his intervention in a disagreement with her father. Okoya and his daughter have since resolved their differences and are reportedly on very good terms.
