Kola Abiola regains groove
SCION of the Abiola family, Kola Abiola, is one Nigerian aristocrat who can be regarded as socially invisible. He is well known for his very private lifestyle, unlike his highly sociable late father, politician and business mogul, Bashorun M.K.O. Abiola who was reputed for gracing many high-octane occasions in his lifestyle.
Last Saturday, however, Kola took time out to honour Femi Otedola, his friend since the 1980s, who had his late father and former Lagos State Governor, Sir Michael Otedola, committed to mother earth.
Before then, Kola had not been a regular face in social circles, leaving people to speculate about the likelihood of his appearance at Otedola’s burial. Some said he might not show up at the ceremony, while others who knew how close Femi and Kola were, vowed that Kola would show up. It turned out that the latter group triumphed.
Even though the late MKO Abiola was a chieftain of the Social Democratic Party, the platform on which he contested the presidential election and won before the Babangida administration robbed him of his mandate, Kola was a regular face at the NRC-controlled Lagos State Government House while Sir Otedola held sway as governor between 1991 and 1993.
The dark-complexioned dude was seeing sitting with Femi Otedola during the reception party.
