With their peculiar genii, they liven up industry; the exploits they dare, burnish the business world even as they dull the pointed edges of the cut-throat blades of commerce.

There is no gainsaying that Femi Otedola and Aliko Dangote’s friendship is an allegory. It becomes a bond in which the characters and events are to be understood as representing other things and symbolically expressing a deeper, often spiritual, moral, or political meaning

Little wonder the Chairman of Forte Oil, treated his friend, the founder and CEO of Dangote Group, with utmost love and respect. Femi, the billionaire businessman, is hosted the Africa’s richest billionaire, Aliko, last night, Sunday for his 60th birthday. The high-octane party took place in Femi’s mansion in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Trust Femi, he doesn’t do things in half measure, good money were put into good use to celebrate his friend, Aliko, who has equally stayed by him.

Guests and dignitaries trooped to Femi’s abode the way snowflakes trickle down from heaven above. They kept it casual and simple with élan, just the way the host wanted them to appear. The event was indeed a memorable one; business associates, friends and family members of the oil magnate deserted the humdrum of their daily lives to celebrate with one of their own.

The celebrant’s heart of course was full of enchanting song. It pulsated pleasantly at the outward show of care and zealous love he encountered by the guests. He could not help but lose the breath in his lungs momentarily.
