Mike Adenuga Junior stands out among rich businessmen, and his distinctive trait is his amiable demeanor. Unlike many other super-rich individuals, he doesn’t engage in the typical razzmatazz and noise associated with high-profile figures.
It’s widely acknowledged that Mike Adenuga earned his wealth through incredible hard work, and he tends to keep a low profile, rarely making appearances outside his home. As the Chairman of the Mike Adenuga Group, a private holding company for entities like Conoil and Globacom, he’s an enigmatic figure who prefers to keep a level of mystery.
Within social and business circles, there are a select few individuals that Adenuga holds in high regard. One of these is the respected monarch of Ijebuland, the Awujale of Ijebuland, Adebayo Adetona. Over the years, Adenuga has consistently shown love and respect for this esteemed ruler.
The relationship between the Awujale and Adenuga is reciprocal. As an older cousin to the businessman, the monarch openly expresses his fondness, considering Adenuga as a happy and well-respected son. Adenuga was honored with the title of Otunba Apesin of Ijebuland by the monarch, acknowledging his remarkable success story.
Adenuga also holds in high esteem the Esama of Benin, Gabriel Osaw Igbinedion, even though he rarely attends social events. Surprisingly, Adenuga welcomed the super-rich Igbinedion to his home on two occasions in recent months.
During these visits, Adenuga’s new luxury aircraft, one of the most expensive in his fleet, drew attention. Parked at the Benin Airport apron, the jet left many in awe. This Bombardier 7500, powered by two Titanium Plated Rolls Royce Engines, is the first business jet with a furnished suite, comfortable lounge, multi-function conference area, and a large master suite, ensuring an unparalleled flight experience for its proud owner.
Adenuga’s $73 million luxury aircraft is not just a mode of transportation; it’s an uber-luxury temporary living space that rivals any five-star hotel. For a busy tycoon like Adenuga, such opulent accommodations make perfect sense for his numerous ultra-long flights.
