Interesting article on Chief Femi Otedola's daughters @cuppymusic and @temiotedola by Daily Mail

It's not very often that Nigerian sisters are regarded as socialites in the United Kingdom and that's why this article caught my attention.

It was headlined "Lavish parties, nights at the opera and dinner with Valentino: Inside the VERY glamorous world of the Nigerian socialite sisters set to inherit millions". 

Trips to Paris Fashion Week, hobnobbing with Valentino and helping out with styling at Oscar de la Renta - sounds like all the trappings of a celebrity lifestyle.

But it's all in a day's work for Lagos-born Temi Otedola, 19, the daughter of one of Nigeria's richest men. Born in London, she returned to Nigeria for the first seven years of her life before coming back to attend boarding school, and is now settled in the capital.  

Temi's is the youngest daughter of energy tycoon Femi Otedola - worth an estimated £650million. 

He was listed as the 16th richest man in Africa by Forbes in 2015, and in Nigeria, where money is measured in dollars, he's referred to as a billionaire - with a fortune of $1.57billion.
