Dr. Deji Adeleke’s Supportive Nature

Published

on

 

Without a doubt, Dr. Adedeji Adeleke is indeed one of the biggest industrialists in Nigeria. He has a large business conglomerate to back up this fact as his magic wand in business has helped sustain him over the years.  The Ede, Osun State-born billionaire connotes a soul who enjoys the abundant grace of his creator, particularly when you consider how he had risen from grass to grace in his sojourn. 

Staying different from his peers who were born with the proverbial silver spoon in their mouth, Adeleke through sheer dint of hard work, persistence and long-suffering, founded Pacific Holdings a one-time moribund company that rose to become one of the biggest players in the energy, Security, Music Label, Education hospitality, banking and real estate sector. Today, has many other reasons to beat his chest as a successful uncle, father, and grandfather as the leader of the popular Adeleke Dynasty in Ede Osun state.

 

As much as he loved to stay away from the media frenzy, Chief Adedeji’s superstar son; David Adeleke popularly known as Davido threw him into public consciousness after constantly boasting and speaking of his enormous wealth and grand opulence. His son also created the sobriquet ‘Omo Baba Olowo’ meaning the ‘Son of wealthy Man’ for himself.

The generous philanthropist is not a man who likes to display his God-given wealth, but when he has a reason to do so, he has a mastery of it. Apart from his fleet of expensive luxury automobiles, He owns a Gulfstream private jet, estimated to be about $65 million, just over N23.5 Billion. The state-of-the-art Gulfstream family of jets is known for its rakish structures, sleek and well-furnished interiors, speed specs that are the stuff of pilotage dreams. The Cabins and seats were tastefully painted with cream colour, with the very best of luxury laced with comfort. Only a few aviation companies can boast of similar advanced-technology aircraft that redefine safety, comfort and range at speed.

 

Sources say; He is a family man to the core who supports everyone around him. “he loathes the sight of anyone in distress, he is always ready to help. He loves his family. For his family, he is ready to cross seven seas. He displayed this for his younger sibling Ademola Adeleke who won the Osun State Guber Election. He is a dangerous giver who loves philanthropy. His Adeleke University in Ede has plenty of Students enjoying free educational scholarships. He is a man with principles but very generous to a fault.” Another source says; that as a devoted 7th-day Adventist, he does not joke with his Sabbath day; a day he communicates with his creator. “Every Saturday, Dr. Deji will confine himself in a solitary mood, praying for himself, his sibling and his family. He is a selfless man. More reason  he has continued to grow in all ramifications beyond his imagination.”

Apostle Suleman Wears New Look, Style

Published

By

What is a preacher supposed to look like?’ I didn’t know they had a specific style code,” Brother Gift, a member of the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) took a jibe at this interviewer when approached to speak on his General Overseer, Apostle Johnson Suleman’s new haircut and regular trendy dressing. “There’s nothing naturally wrong with a man of God having a trendy haircut or adorning a Brunello Cucinelli suit and Brooks Brothers tie as long as it is not meant to oppress or being ostentatious,” Brother Gift posits avers.

 

 

Apostle Suleman is one of the most stylish Nigerian pastors that are both anointed and gifted with admirable taste for fashion. He smells of class and good taste and, with a fresh approach to dress and doctrine, his smart form, at every service hour, does command his congregation like a charismatic conductor, motivating them to both thunderous cheers and introspective silence.

 

 

His new hair style, a skin fade patterned cut, is the talk in town. His admirers have continued to make his new hair style that matches perfectly his naturally fashionable look the latest topic. That pastors are heavenly conscious, doesn’t mean they can’t be earthly relevant, Apostle Suleman’s followers argue, adding that, combining fabrics and having a sense of fashion is a gift that some men are naturally endowed with, regardless of their circular or spiritual inclination.

 

 

For Suleman, he is a man with class and style. He is a fashion conscious man to the core. His choice of what to put on at a particular time and having them sit perfectly is astonishing. He serves his church members this consistent fashion sense and they say the style has been a major one for the man popularly referred as ‘The Restoration Apostle’  over the years.

 

 

Stepping out to give sermons in his usual smart look, Suleman doesn’t just look different than the stereotypically buttoned-up men of God, he is also reaching younger audiences in a way that the old-fashioned preachers simply aren’t. With a natural and genuine interest in modern style and culture, along with a more contemporary perspective, men of God like Apostle Suleman are changing how the current youth generation relates to Christianity.

 

 

Equally, apart from keeping the home front, Suleman’s wife, Lizzy Suleman, who has  been described as ‘edifying and encouraging individuals to live a purposeful life and achieve their dreams’ also cannot be shoved aside when it comes to style. She also is an epitome of beauty and class. Effortlessly glamorous, insiders say Lizzy only uses light make-up, which brightens her already beautiful look.

 

 

Fresh from his successful ‘Mighty Turnaround Crusade’ in Douala, Cameroun, Apostle Suleman agrees that it is important for the followers to be able to relate to their pastor on many levels; whether it’s style, culture, including religion.

 

“Having this relatable, approachable appearance is a way to immediately tear down a lot of walls between men of God and the people they are trying to reach. The message I am passing with my style is that I want to be fine to be who I am and to uniquely walk out to be who God has called me to be, Suleman declares.
