It does appear that CEO of telecom giants, Mike Adenuga, does not like excessive spotlight of lavish praise. According to reports, the unassuming billionaire walked out of his out 60th birthday bash, after loud encomiums from Glo staff and others present.
The full report said:
This happened last night Friday May 3rd at Mike Adenuga Tower on Adeola Odeku street in Victoria Island. Hundreds of staff of telecoms giant Globacom gathered at the lounge situated on the ground floor of the office building to celebrate with their chairman after a text message was passed round the office on Thursday afternoon inviting staff to a birthday bash with him. Mike Adenuga turned 60 on Monday April 29th.
Okey Bakassi was there as the MC, the DJ was already playing music, drinks passed round while people waited for the billionaire businessman to arrive. Mike Adenuga eventually showed up in his Range Rover bullet proof SUV around 8pm. He graciously greeted people at the entrance of the lounge but stopped in his tracks as people started cheering loudly as he entered the lounge.
The haling was so loud and probably too much for Adenuga that he immediately turned around and left the lounge. He got into his car and left with his security detail. He never came back.
Glo staff waited for a few hours and eventually left when they realized their chairman was not coming back.
Lesson learnt: Mike Adenuga doesn't appreciate unnecessary famzing!
