Why Oil Magnate elicits deafening tribute of interminable cheers at 61
 
Yes, Captain Dr. Idahosa Wells Okunbo is 61 today!   If ‘Hosa’ did not exist, who could invent him? Think. Yes, Captain Hosa is something of a visionary. But at the core of his vision is a deep sense of scale; a profound passion for industry and respect for the universe, in their separate immensities. The Forbes-certified billionaire businessman nurtures abiding love and respect for fellow humans, particularly those whose minds can somehow span the depth of his industry and citizenship of humanity. 
His story offers great lesson for all because it defangs too many of the prejudices and stereotypes that unfairly holds ambitious youth back.  In fact, he achieved success the old-fashioned way: he earned it. He worked hard and stayed humble. 
There is something electrifying about Capt. Hosa. He exudes the lustre of the proverbial leading light thus distinguishing his persona amid a range of middling men. Yes, Okunbo radiates compassion, ardor and acclaim that no life’s odd could tame. Having hacked his path to affluence in honest, industrious strides, he spread outs like a bastion of human aspiration even as his exploits become objects of the world affection.
Everywhere he navigates, he exudes a spirit of humaneness and generosity that even the world’s finest and most daring philanthropists live in awe of.  Like a strapping rampart in life’s sea of odds, Okunbo’s resilience stretches for miles. And you did still hang on his every thrust and aspire to the random lunges of the billionaire magnate for all its worth.
As a businessman, Okunbo has the same fundamental psychology as the artist, inventor, or statesman. He has set himself at a certain work and the work absorbs and becomes him. It is the expression of his personality; he lives in its growth and perfection according to his plans.
There is no gainsaying that the amiable Chairman of Ocean Marine Solutions represents a force of nature on the African continent, a towering force of hope and entrepreneurial depth.
His sterling industry, humanity and unpretentious modesty manifest on all of his acquaintances, positively. Capt. Okunbo is a patriot whose commitment to national and economic stability are beyond doubt. By grit, persistence and hard work, he built a great empire that employs thousands of Nigerians and Africans in highly profitable and futuristic endeavour. He gives generously to medical research, the arts, education, think tanks and science without courting the media’s attention.
He cares deeply about the values that make success in Nigeria and the African continent possible — free markets, freedom, limited censure and healthy competition.
He is currently one of the very few economic giants and magnates enjoying the respect of the Nigerian government due to his infectious modesty and enviable business culture in the oil and gas sector. Capt. Okunbo is something of a futurist. But at the core of his vision is a profound passion for industry and respect for the universe, in its towering immensities.
Okunbo is the best thing going for corporate Nigeria – in the oil and gas sector to be precise. Call him what you want, but recognize him for what he is: a futuristic magnate cum problem solver. An effective one at that! He’s soft-spoken, but driven by a fierce determination to bring progress to his beloved Nigeria and the African continent. Idahosa embodies a revolt against tiresome ego and false modesty. He also understands that false modesty is a learned affectation. It’s just like decals.
The philosophers tell us that money corrupts and billions of money corrupts absolutely. He lives as if his intimidating billions doesn’t get to him. He hasn’t tried to become anybody else’s idea of a billionaire. He has remained himself, with earnest grace, tenderness and sense of humour. His power lies largely in his self-awareness and wit. 
Like all great men, he has a joke ready to deflect any jeer. And his tacit determination to be the bastion of hope, entrepreneurial success and inspiration for a generation invites and thwarts many a poisoned arrow – from his underperforming rivals. Idahosa’s true appeal, though, lies in his meekness and transparency.
He is unflinchingly, unnervingly honest.
He exposes, beneath all that bare skin, a multitude of traits as vivid and raw a portrait as we have seen and for this, the world ravenously embrace him. Okunbo’s unique lack of vanity inspires a lot of his contemporaries and underlings to consider that they may also be able to conduct themselves humbly and unpretentiously. This is not only impressive, it’s important. 
By Idahosa’s exploits, business can be seen as a tool for fantasy, one by which the billionaire magnate shows that we can transform our reality. Idahosa’s life is certainly fantastic—the stuff of fairy tales, magazine covers and excellent portraits. But it’s crucial to note that he made his own destiny. He effortlessly melds into the roles of a diligent worker and responsible family man. This is why his business thrives and his family blossoms with amazing speed, sophistication and simplicity.
