Femi Otedola, the billionaire oil mogul, nurtures a robust interest in the humane. He does not turn a blind eye to the needy. Rather he pays good mind to their needs. And in this respect, his generosity proclaims him. He embarks on a humanitarian odyssey like a kind of poet and painter whose imagination is unclipped. He paints picturesque scenes in lives severely marred by squalor; he encrusts bleakness in shiny varnish and, as he is able, he seeks to mend small damaged lives here and there

However, the humanitarian side of the Chairman of Forte Oil has been taking the better part of him lately; and he does appear as someone whose philanthropy does not seem to be ebbing any time soon. It is not that Otedola has a new biological son but he has added to the list of people whose wellbeing and growth he has chosen to shoulder the responsibility.

Here is how the story goes: Otedola had attended a comedy show hosted by Kenny Blaq in Eko Hotels in company of his daughters last Sunday. He was sitting in a vantage position to see a very talented kid do rap in a captivating manner. Impressed by his wizardry, Otedola reached out to the managers of the wonder kid named Megabyte.

He invited the boy to his office few days later, and had a discussion with him. Inspired by the boy’s gift and smartness, Otedola promised to help make his dream a reality. He demonstrated his large-heartedness by taking up his educational needs immediately and up to the boy’s university education. He also encouraged the boy to consistently reach out to him when the needs be, as he is readily available to assist in his music journey.

Otedola has recently upped the ante of his philanthropic gestures. The billionaire businessman instituted a N200 million scholarship scheme as intervention in the educational sector in 2008. Like his late father, sir Michael Otedola, Femi Otedola has demonstrated himself to be a generous soul with a heart for the less privileged and the challenged. His munificence is a testament to the fact that kindness runs in the DNA of the Otedolas.
