Dr. Taiwo Olayinka Afolabi Popularly known as SIFAX is a man blessed with the mien of a lion and a heart of Gold. All his life, he has never failed to acknowledge the grace he has been enjoying from his creator. Everything is rosy for him at the moment, but not many saw his struggles during his trying times on his way to the top. Despite being a workaholic, he does not joke with humanity. The maritime guru believed strongly in his voluptuous dreams; he never doubted his ability as he strongly believed in his innate ability to see fortune out of every misfortune. More reason he is a major player across the business pies tied around him with a large interest in Maritime, Aviation, Haulage, Hospitality, Financial Services and Oil and Gas.

The trained lawyer is not your regular greenhorn when it comes to business he is a calculated businessman who loves to take risks. He believes risk-takers are those who will eventually make heads ways in the nations dwindling economy. More reason his name is currently flying high as his Marriot Hotel situated in the heart of Lagos is currently a mecca of sort for those who want the luxury lade with hospitality.

Despite clocking age 60, marking it with a celebration in the United Kingdom weeks ago, many never knew Afolabi had plans to celebrate his 60th birthday in Nigeria. While many thought it was going to be the regular Lagos party celebration hosted at a highbrow location on the island, Afolabi dragged the whole of Lagos to his hometown in Ijebu-Ode for a three days 60th birthday party.

 

It was indeed a celebration like a movie as he also commissioned his all over 5 million Dollars white jaw-dropping palatial heaven on earth architectural wonderment country home in Ijebu-Ode GRA sitting on over an acre of land, dedicated and handed over Samson Afolabi Anglican Church to the memory of his late father to the Anglican Diocese in Ijebu-Ode and hosted a grand 60th Birthday soiree. The three-day event also had an All-white oldies party for his friends, a dinner at his mansion and on Sunday, he dedicated the church and officially opened the Country Home with Royal fathers, Business moguls and A-list guests in attendance.

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.

Why Are They After Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s Life??

For Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, He remains the proverbial cat with nine lives. In several attempts to cut him down, he has over conquered his enemies both politically and in Business. Since his foray into the murky waters of politics, one thing was constant for him, his ability to bring about the much-needed change to his people and give them the dividend of democracy at all costs. With his heart desires, he tried vehemently to win the Anambra guber seat but was given baptismal of fire on the three occasions he has tried to contest. In the run-up to the 2019 general elections, his detractors thought it was business as usual but the Nnewi-born Capital Oil boss showed that he has indeed come of age as a politician and gathered the much-needed experience.

 

After his victory at the 2019 \Anambra South Senatorial Election with his moribund Young Progressive Party YPP, He singlehandedly broke the Andy and Chris Uba brother’s stronghold on Abambra South Senatorial district as he gave them a run for their money crashing their winning streak in the district spanning into years. Despite several attempts of trying to steal his mandate from him via the judiciary, The Generous Money bag came out victorious as he won clean from the High court to the supreme court which affirmed his candidature at the pools. Since then he has remained victorious. Last week, when the news of his escape from whiskers broke many didn’t know the level of loss and damage that was done by some Unknown Gun Men who Ambushed his convoy in Anambra state shooting sporadically killing over 8 of his escorts and personal aides. It was a Black Sunday for the senator as he was said to have escaped like a flash of the light using his bulletproof car also guided by providence a few days after celebrating his 51st birthday on the 3rd of September devoid of fanfare. Those close to the senator averred that he wept profusely like a baby over the loss of his people. Some even said if they had told him to pay for the lives lost he will spare no cost to ensure those who died during the gun duel were safe. Some say he is heartbroken, mourning the deceased.

 

Those in the know also raised an eyebrow why Senator Ubah is a target for those who want to take him out. After several forth and back, some people disclosed that it might be connected to his generous donation of a whopping sum of 500Million Naira to his state to fight insecurity. The funds he donated was to enable the state government to train security personnel, acquire security communication gadgets and also to acquire solar street lights that will illuminate the streets in a bid to fight those who are hell-bent on causing unrest within Anambra State. Sources say; “We are not certain yet but we heard that the attack might have been as a result of his public donation to strengthen Anambra’s Security and his fight to restore sanity to the state. Maybe that’s why he was a target. We are sure the law and nemesis will catch up with the perpetrators of this evil. If they feel attacking him would stop him from desisting in his fight against insecurity they are joking. What does not kill you will make you stronger. They have just successfully made him stronger. He will put more resources to ensure his people as safe from these killers.”
