Folorunsho Alakija Speaks On Pampering Her Husband – Mrs Folorunsho Alakija is the richest woman in Africa, but that hasn’t stopped her from being a doting wife to her husband, Modupe.
In a recent interview, Alakija, who is the executive vice chairman of Famfa Oil and group managing director of The Rose of Sharon Group, revealed that their love still burns strong after over 35 years of marriage.
“My husband is my best friend, biggest adviser and supporter,” Alakija was quoted as saying. “We’ve known each other for 40 years and have been married for 37 years now and with four boys.”
“Even though we work in the same office, I always ensure that we kiss twice in a day, morning and night. I still wash his undies until six years ago that he insisted I should stop.”
“I also prepare his special vegetable dish and do his manicure and pedicure regularly. I go to the airport to pick him whenever he’s returning from foreign trips. It gives me joy whenever his friends praise my vegetable dish based on what my husband tells them.”
