Happy new year!
Wishing you all the very best for 2016! Yes folks, it has been quiet around these streets largely due to revamp we are under-going…more on that later but we are excited to announce our first guest for our #AfricaLeads twitter conversations.
Listed by Forbes as one of the three Black female billionaires Madam Folorunso Alakija is also one of Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Women in the World. I was blessed with the opportunity to interview her a few years back and even wrote about her on ESSENCE as one of their 2014 “Game Changers, Power List” (the article was originally published in the November 2014 issue of ESSENCE magazine). Since then she has become a close mentor and someone that I pray with. In December of last year, during my first ever trip to Nigeria, I fellowshipped with Madam Alakija at Rose of Sharon Glorious Ministry International in Lagos, where she is the servant leader and minister. It was so inspiring to see her in her element, teaching the Word of God and ministering.
I initially made the request for a Twitter chat with her in 2015 but Madam, who turns 65 this year, keeps a very busy schedule. But I was relentless in locking down a date with her where she could impart her life lessons and her vision for Nigeria and Africa with us. Finally, we got a date and I am happy to share that our Twitter chat with Madam Alakija will take place on Wednesday, 27th January; 12pm – 1pm EST / 6pm – 7pm Nigeria time.
Everyone is invited to hear from one of Africa’s Black female billionaires!
Date: Wednesday, 27th January 2016
Time: 12pm – 1pm EST / 6pm – 7pm Nigeria time
Guest: Madam Forolunso Alakija
