For most Nigerians, Emeka Okonkwo, famously known as E-Money, needs no introduction. The celebrated boss of Five Star Music and Emmy Cargoes Limited also doubles as a philanthropist who has thoroughly paid his dues.
However, when the business mogul met the Chairman of Heirs Holdings, the United Bank for Africa, and Transnational Corporation of Nigeria Plc (Transcorp), Tony Elumelu, E-Money felt he definitely needed to introduce himself to the economist and entrepreneur.
This is of little surprise considering the empire and conglomerate that Tony Elumelu has been able to build. In fact he was listed as one of the 20 Most Powerful Africans by Forbes Magazine in 2012.
Therefore, for E-Money, who is also the younger brother of music heavyweight, Kcee, there’s still a lot to learn from Tony Elumelu and the humility was thoroughly needed when they met at The Dorchester Hotel with the MD of Transcorp Hilton, Val Ozigbo.
The youth-friendly Tony Elumelu took to social media platform, Instagram, to share details of the encounter:
Trust Nigerians to quickly react to the innocuous encounter with some interesting twists. Many of the reactions centered around who was more wealthy, famous or even carried the bigger clout of the two Nigerian billionaires.
