I told myself, finally a young chap will have the opportunity to tap into Bola’s glory. Yea you have held on for far too long.

I expected you to act all boss and allow your employees do the bidding but hell no, you fought with us on the battlefield for our target in the audience share. A CEO whom I can ignore and call a colleague because we were all presenters at a point. An act that taught me why I cannot relent on my oars.

They call you the finest. The passion and zeal of which you executed your drive show left many wo…
