Why Bella Disu is the apple of Otunba Mike Adenuga’s eyes


Bella Disu, the daughter of billionaire businessman, Otunba Mike Adenuga,the Chairman of Globacom is worth more than 10,000 sons to him.

Over the years, she has risen meteorically to the apex of her beautiful career with unprecedented sterling achievements since she arrived back to Nigeria after her studies in the United States few years ago.

To say she is the apple of her father’s eyes is saying the obvious. Little wonder, the Africa’s second richest man named a gigantic edifice after her, Bella Towers. She had also been tipped to take over her father’s business empire with her level of managerial skills and prowess.

Married to Jameel Disu,Bella rose in rank at her father’s telecommunications company ,Globacom, over the years, learning from experience, starting from the bottom, where like an acorn she grew from being a “Sales Executive” to finally becoming the executive Vice Chairman.

Recently, the cerebral lady represented her father’s business interest alongside Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote and banking guru Jim Ovia, at a group of more than 150 global business leaders at the 2019 Choose France International Business Summit which took place at the Chateau de Versailles, France.

During the event, Bella announced a deal with Nokia Alcatel-Lucent, a global telecom equipment manufacturing company, to supply, install, and integrate a new SurePay Intelligent Network platform to improve Globacom’s services in Nigeria.

Still not resting on her oars, the arts enthusiast, and philanthropist just like her dad who has his hands in many pies, also delved into real estate with her Cobblestones Properties, she recently unveiled her unique high rise building, Sisi Paris, named after her daughter, Paris in Ikoyi, Lagos.

This affection was reciprocated last April when her father clocked 66. Bella posted an old picture of her younger version sitting on her father’s lap with both of them doing thumps up on her instagram page. And she wrote”For many things, so very many things… For teaching me that the word “impossible” doesn’t exist. For pushing me to build resolve, persistence and grit. “For instilling humility in me… refusing to buy me a new school bag, and insisting that I got it repaired after I cut it up myself as a 9-year-old – just because I wanted a new school bag.“For introducing me to Highlife music. But most importantly, For giving me my very first taste of Kir Royale! 66 Hearty Cheers Dad! Thank you for the gift of you.
