cynosure of all eyes. Another of these very powerful friends of Ojugbele is Awe, Osun state born Chief Lai Amoje, he, like Ojugbele & Kamal Adeyemi also have an ever green number with Ebenezer Obey. Chief Ojora Apasa is the next man, who
stole the show in a very big way, and Ebenezer Obey took almost an hour plus to

Chief (Alhaji) Buari Oloto is today widely known as Basorun Lamina Ayinla Ojugble’s protégé
because the later mentored the former. However, not much is known about their
maternal history but sources alleged that their mothers are members of the same
family in Awori land and while Buari’s
mum married a Lagosian, Ojugbele’s mum married an Ota-Awori man. Although Buari learnt the rope of land and real
estate business from Ojugbele, one
unique thing about two of them is the fact that they are both single child of
their parents. Although unconfirmed sources has it that, Lamina Ojugbele had two sisters who are now late and he is the only
boy child of his late mother but in
case, he was the only child of his parent. When he arrive the party
