The Private World Of Lagos Billionaire, Tunji Olowolafe

-Hosts Classy Wedding For Daughter
-Why He is Governor Fashola's Best Friend
-His Love Affair With Lagos PS, Nike Animashaun
-His Cold War With Asiwaju Bola Tinubu

The name, Dr. Tunji Olowolafe is not one that likely to strike a chord of instant recognition within the Lagos social circuit. But the personality behind that name is a prominent member of the Lagos elite class. Besides, Olowolafe is also popular on account of the fact that he has the honor of having Lagos State governor, 

Babatunde Raji Fashola as his best friend. 
Olowolafe is the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Deux Project Limited. He is a medical doctor by training and has worked as a health worker across various parts of South Western Nigeria. Olowolafe is a major investor and leader in Public Private Partnership (PPP) infrastructure projects, including serving as Chairman of Lekki Concession Company and Eko
Rail. He also acts on the Boards of a number of other companies in different sectors of the Nigerian economy. His passion for medicine culminated in the formation of Deux Project Limited - a company initially focused on restructuring and fitting world class hospitals across various parts of Nigeria. Deux Project Limited has expanded its focus to include general civil engineering, construction and consultancy. Also, he is the Chairman of GZ Industry Limited, the only can manufacturer serving the Nigerian market.

Fondly called Lafe in Lagos government circles, Olowolafe has also worked for the Federal Government and some other state governments for over 20 years. Sources in government circles said he handled major contracts for the defunct Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF). Olowolafe, through his company, Deux Project, is said to have had his hand on the pulse in Lagos State for several years dating back to the administration of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in 2005. His Deux international company was said to have got contracts for the supply of health facilities, rehabilitation of hospitals and was known to have worked at many hospitals in Lagos. The company was alleged to have supplied hospitals with medical equipment and furnished some  Cardiac Centres in Lagos. The company was similarly allege to have constructed roads and drainages within some top class hospitals. 
Nike and her daughter
Invariably, when, two weekends ago, Olowolafe hosted the wedding of his first daughter, the crime de la creme of the Lagos social establishment turned out to celebrate with him and his family. Of course, his best friend, Governor Fashola and his wife, acted as the chief hosts during the ceremony. Meanwhile, most of the guests were not so surprise at Asiwaju Bola Tinubu's conspicuous absence at the wedding. And neither did his wife, Senator Oluremi turn up for the wedding. Well, it is a well-known fact that Asiwaju Tinubu and Olowolafe fell out with each otter a couple of years back, and their relationship has become frosty since then. 
However, The ELITES learnt that the absence of Olowolafe's second wife, Nike Animashaun raised not a few eyebrows and sent many tongues wagging. Nike, the younger sister of Lagos Big Boy, Segun Sebanjo, is the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Science and Technology. She is one of Fashola's most trusted and loyal lieutenants. Sources disclosed that Nike decided to stay away from the wedding ceremony because she wouldn't want to steal the thunder from the bride's mother. It is pertinent to note that the bride's mother had been separated from Olowolafe before Nike came into the picture. Meanwhile, some close friends of Nike were the classy wedding ceremony.
