The first time I heard his name was from the mouth of a coursemate and roommate, about seven years ago. He (Fela Durotoye) was in school for a program, and my roommate wanted me to attend. I wasn’t, and still am not a fan of motivational speeches, I didn’t go.
Forward three years later, my church had a conference and he was invited to speak. Disappointed at first, I decided to listen to what he had to say… needless to say I was hooked. He spoke with passion for the country, something I didn’t see in a lot of motivational speakers. His passion won me over although his speech was embedded with the usual motivational quotes. And now, I am a lover and follower of Fela Durotoye.
Born on the 21st of May 1971He is an alumnus of John F. Kennedy School of Government Executive Education program of Harvard University.
Fela is a business consultant, nation builder, motivational speaker, leadership and now political aspirant. He is married to makeup icon, Tara Durotoye. They live together with their three children (Mobolurin, Demilade, and Morolaoluwa) in Victoria Garden City (VGC). He and his family are devout Christians.
Fela Durotoye is reportedly worth $ 1.7 Million, according to Wealth Result.
The 22nd of February, 2018 will be a special day that will always be remembered by him, his family, friends, and followers. He didn’t win the election, that was the day he declared his intentions to run for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. A coalition of 11 aspirants under the umbrella of the Presidential Aspirants Coming Together (PACT) unanimously elected him as their consensus candidate.
And when we thought the shock was over, we learned we were only getting started. On September 29, 2018, he emerged as the presidential candidate of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN).
Since then, he has given his all into making his political dream a reality. You may have seen some banners and adverts going around. The most popular being his Instagram skit with Actor turned Instagram sensation, Igwe Tupac.
He winning in the elections next year remains an uncertainty, but this is one man that has the ability to drastically improve the economy and quality of the country. And he is not too young to run.
light sleeper, heavy dreamer.
