Despite swimming in wealth, fame and influence, Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija displays multiple personalities. Apart from the fact that she has been consistent in attributing her successes to her maker, Nigeria’s acclaimed richest woman has remained a source of inspiration to many young women across Africa and beyond. But one silent attribute of Alakija that cannot go unnoticed, is her immitable spiritual lifestyle.
To her credit, this woman of many parts has been organizing world class crusades where she regularly invites men of God from other climes to share their salvation experience with the people. She also partakes in preaching the undiluted word of God reminiscent of old time religion which dwells mainly on salvation and deliverance. These days when real clerics are scarce, Alakija has remained true to her calling and faith and would remain so, despite her foray into the oil business and fashion.
