Magnanimity is seldom a strong suit of Nigerian billionaires. But nature does not use a one-size fits all approach, which is why billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, is widely perceived as one of the rarest and kindest of money men.

Giving without looking back is a second skin to him. While he would rather do this without making a song and dance about it, many a beneficiary, out of sheer happiness and relief, have rushed to the media to express gratitude to him for his continuous philanthropy.

The altruistic billionaire Otedola has taken up the therapeutic costs of the renowned reggae symbol, Majek Fashek, who is a debilitated patient in London.

The reggae artiste's manager, Uzoma Omenka, described the ailing condition of the 'Rainmaker' crooner, who is now receiving treatment in a London clinic.

Fortunately, Mr Otedola has come to the aid of the reggae star and Nigerians have expressed their satisfaction and appreciation towards him.

Apparently, they have not forgotten so soon how the businessman extraordinaire spent N36,635,000 footing the medical bills of former captain and coach of the Super Eagles, Christian Chukwu.

In May, Otedola came to the aid of Peter Fregene, a former Green Eagles goalkeeper, who had been bedridden since 2001, after a 'Sunday PUNCH' report last May.

He is currently also footing the medical bills of popular actor, Victor Olaitan, a lead character in the TV series, 'Tinsel', in a Turkish hospital.

Otedola has also reportedly taken up the medical expenses of ailing Nollywood actor, Sadiq Daba.

In 2017, Sadiq Daba, who had been battling leukaemia and prostate cancer for the past few years, returned to Nigeria from the UK where he went for medical treatment. The ace broadcaster also revealed that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in November 2017. This was barely months after he was hospitalised due to leukaemia

Truly, the Nigerian billionaire, Otedola, who is father to musician, DJ Cuppy, and fashion icon, Temi, is a man with a heart of gold who believes in helping his countrymen.
