Renowned Nigerian business woman and the third richest African women billionaires in the world according to Forbes,Folorunso Alakija revealed a motivational part of her life yesterday via her Instagram page @alakijaofficial .
Mrs Alakija revealed how she came from a Muslim home and was 8 out of 52 children and made her money without any university degree.
She wrote: “I would like to encourage you on my encounter with the Glory of God.
It happened almost 27 years ago when I gave my life to Christ at the age of 40 and my life has not been the same ever since, I pray your life too, will experience a total turn around.
I was born almost 67 years ago, into a large and illustrious polygamous Muslim family as number 8 out of 52 children through a father who had 8 wives.
Back then large families were common, but what was unusual was that I was one of the very firstfew Nigerian children who left it’s shores to go and study abroad at such a tender age of 7.
Even at that age, I knew I could not afford to let my family down cause I was seen as an ambassador.
My desire was to study law but my Daddy did not believe in investing in girls at that time.
Today, I have no university degree, but God’s glory lifted me up and I have received numerous Honorary Doctorate Degrees at home and abroad.
All of what you now see today has taken almost two and a half decades, so I am not an overnight success. On the contrary. Through God’s grace, I am a blood bought totally forgiven, absolutely redeemed, heaven bound child of God.
I have had to make sacrifices like everyone else, faced challenges but never given up.
I have not compromised myself, my values or my faith.
GLORY BE TO GOD.” Wow! Great minds isn't this inspiring? This is another true life story authenticating that your background can never determine your future. You were created by God for a purpose and if you hold on to God and work in line with his purpose for you, success is yours.
