astounded when they are faced with the magnificent objects of desire, which
that incredibly blessed colossus, international businessman, Ambassador (Chief) Antonio Oladeinde Fernandez has assembled.
Without

people, encourage them to aim for the sky. 
We would all have thought it impossible for a mortal to be this
rewarded.

adorable yacht, Yemoja is a
delight.  The two-storey wonder has
spectacular sitting and dining rooms, a lavish master bedroom with two baths,
two children’s rooms, a gym and entertainment centre among other heavenly
paraphernalia”.

homes around the world have awards and gifts from every where.  And his dinning rooms usually have flags of
visiting head of states.  And some of the
most popular world leaders have special seat made for them”

Holy Cross, Lagos was where he
began his education.  He moved on to CMS Grammar School, Bariga and St. Gregory College, Obalende (both in Lagos) for
secondary education.
Brooklyn College and St. John’s University were the tertiary
institutions the Apesin Ola (Onije
Onimu) of Egba land attended.

two ravishingly beautiful daughters, Princess
Atinuke
and Princess Abimbola.

representative for Central African Republic.

The
goddess of the sea (which is what Yemoja
translates to in Yoruba, the rich language of Nigerians who live in the South
Western part of the African nation), the yacht designed by F de Voogt, built by Van
Lent
with interior décor by Lavor has
dominant African themes.

or white washed oak paneling.

The Island & Chateau Palaces too

If
you think Ambassador Antonio Fernandez’s
taste is lavished only on Yemoja,
come with us to his paradise on an island in New York (United States of America). With all the modern services a
town might require including a fire service station, and a long bridge leading
to the palace, this mansion takes the cake.
Lavishly
decorated rooms, with golden balustrade, dining room with golden chandeliers,
it is splendor at its highest.
When
the water level is high, the state-of-the-art cars are automatically raised
above sea level, protecting all objects on ground.
Well-fortified,
the Island home is impenetrable.

Chief’s Suite with a sitting area and Large Bed

The
chateau in France, once owned by Napoleon Bonaparte is another
architectural master piece.  With
everything you can think of, it is on a large expanse of land as big as a
village.

And
the interior bears the indelible signature of the wealthy merchant.  Only the best is good enough, and the chateau
displays all the beauty under the sun.
His
homes around the world have awards and gifts from every where.  And his dinning rooms usually have flags of
visiting head of states.  And some of the
most popular world leaders have special seat made for them.
The
guardian of panache and prosperity travels in style.  He has six up-to-the minute private jets (Two
Gulf streamer G4 and 900 Boeing).
