Philanthropist Femi Otedola Marks Diamond Jubilee in Grand Style

Femi Otedola, a multibillionaire businessman and philanthropist, went above and beyond to celebrate his 60th birthday in style.

Otedola, for his 60th birthday, spent roughly €3 million to charter a super-luxury boat by Christina O.

The legendary motor yacht Christina O made its debut as a Canadian frigate in World War II. In 1954, Christina O was purchased by the Greek magnate Aristotle Onassis, who made her perhaps the most popular luxury yacht of her time.

Onassis bought the frigate for $34,000 and then spent $4 million to turn it into a luxury state-of-the-art yacht and named it after his daughter Christina. The super yacht was later renamed “Christina O” by another owner following Onassis’ death.

The oil tycoon rented the super yacht to honour the historic celebration on Friday, November 4th. Onassis was one of the oil tycoon’s childhood heroes.

The wealthy industrialist alongside his family and would-be son-in-law, Oluwatosin Ajibade, also known as Mr. Eazi, was seen boarding the yacht.

The boat, which is now ranked as the 59th largest in the world, will travel three weeks across the Mediterranean Sea with 37 crew members on board. Along with other opulent features, the yacht boasts a bed with Otedola’s initials, FO, engraved on it.

When it comes to humanitarian deeds, the fashionable philanthropist has established herself as a trailblazer. He has given out millions of naira in scholarships to needy students in Lagos State throughout the years.

He also presented a N5 billion check to Save the Children, a 100-year-old organisation with headquarters in the UK.

Remember how he generously covered the medical costs for Victor Olaotan and Sadiq Daba, two ailing senior actors, as well as Christian Chukwu, a national football icon, and Peter Fregene, a former international goalkeeper.

A group of talented Nigerian youngsters, the Ikorodu Bois, also celebrated billionaire businessman on his 60th birthday and shared how he impacted their lives. According to them, the Nigerian billionaire has been paying their tuition fees since 2019.

Otedola has widespread acclaim and admiration for having a wonderful heart.
