The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ovation Media Group, publishers of TheBoss Newspapers and other titles, Bashorun Dele Momodu, has added another feather to his crown of glory as he was Thursday crowned the Aare Agbeluga of Yorubaland by a first class king, His Royal Highness The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi Telu I in Iwo town.
Momodu was in Iwo as a guest speaker at the Bowen University chapter of the Nigerian Universities Association of Management and Business Students (NUAMBS)’ week long programme of activities to observe the 2018 Annual Business Students Week.
At the lecture which had in attendance prominent academic personalities of the department and a crowd of students, Bashorun Momodu was quick to use his life as a case study for doggedness, focus and determination which are the keys necessary to establish and sustain a business. He admonished the students to stick to a choice of whatever they wish to be identified with in future today, and work steadfastly on it without wavering, and success will be theirs. He noted that starting and owning ones business is a mark of respect.
Chief Momodu took time to address burning questions from the students of the department, and meticulously put them on the right and profitable track.
In appreciation of Momodu’s landmark achievements in his chosen field and more, Oba Akanbi, who attended the event out of respect for the celebrated journalist, immediately conferred on him the Aare Agbeluga of Yorubaland, and urged him to continue his good works.
Afterwards, Aare Momodu moved the palace of the oba to pay homage.
So when next you see Bashorun Momodu, respectfully address him as CHIEF DELE MOMODU, THE AARE AGBELUGA OF YORUBALAND.
