The Real Rotimi Alakija - Hot Son of Nigerian Billionaire Folorunso Alakija

Posted in: ,

Rotimi Alakija first came to my attention when he was featured in an article [here] on Nigeria’s growing “young moneyed” set which highlighted people like “DJ Cuppy” Otedola, Eku Edewor and her twin sister, Misan Harriman, Richard Vedelago, Adora Mba, Kola Karim among others.

Tatler, the British high society magazine who published the article, described these Nigerians as having billionaire parents, boarding school credentials and private jet passes, and the picture above of Rotimi was included in the article.

So, I can't imagine how Business Insider now erroneously listed DJ Xclusive, whose real name is also Rotimi Alakija, as the son of Folorunso Alakija.

In an article listing the World’s Hottest Billionaire Offspring, the picture and bio of DJ Xclusive is featured alongside Sofia Abramovich of Chelsea FC, Vanisha Mittal, Ivana Trump, and others.

I'm sure there are a lot of Rotimi Alakijas, but if the writer of the article had done proper research, or had reached out to DJ Xclusive, they would've avoided this gaffe.
