Brunch With The World's Richest Black Woman

Adesuwa and Folorunsho
The richest black woman in the world, Mrs Folorunsho Alakija was hosted recently in Lagos by Diamond bank. The initiative tagged ‘Diamond Woman’ is a woman empowerment forum which is strategically organised and targeted to cater for the corporate needs of career women in the society.  The epoch-making event, which took centre stage at Civic Centre, Lekki, Lagos, stirred discussions on womanhood and the corporate world.

Alakija shared her corporate life experience which has seen her evolve through three major sectors, namely banking, fashion designing and the oil industry. According to her, sheer willpower and unshaken belief in God are the reasons she has conquered her world. ‘‘Nothing has changed since I was acclaimed the richest black woman in the world. Apart from constantly pushing myself to do more, I owe all my success to God. It is also instructive that our modern-day women should be submissive to their husband; it is a tested, tasted and trusted nugget which has aided my success story today. My experience in banking, fashion, and the oil sector has also grounded me in dealing with business propositions. Nigerian career woman should strive to be 100 per cent successful at the workplace and the home front.’’

Anchoring the event, ace T.V broadcaster, Adesuwa Onyenokwe, engaged Folorunsho on several issues affecting the corporate woman and how she surmounted them. Some of the women present at the forum expressed satisfaction about the import of meeting minds with the richest black woman in the world.
