Property czar and chairman of DHB Group Limited, Hakeem Alobo-Bakare would count his blessings as he clocks 63 on Friday, June 11, 2021. An encounter with the Lagos State-born businessman would reveal a man of exceptional intellect, who has a profound passion for his calling. The birthday ‘boy’ evokes a rare combination of critical approval and public affection-love, even.
This may not be unconnected with the fact that he is audacious in his simplicity and brilliant in his business exploits. For many years, he has become a reference point in the nation’s Properties Construction sector. This is not a mean feat, as those close to him attribute it to his relentless efforts as well as personal strength built through struggle, tenacity, resilience, unbending determination, and focus, and business acumen.
Interestingly, he also shares that strength with tremendous compassion and empathy. Channeling his own experiences, he has personally touched the lives of countless others who have had to confront their challenges.
The businessman towers above many of his contemporaries, particularly because he has been in a warm embrace of fame for many decades. No wonder, when a man with such phenomenal achievements celebrates his birthday, not a few would want to share in his joy.
As gathered the man who is also a politician is not throwing an elaborate party though, he will dedicate the day thanking God, counting his blessings, and praising God for all his achievements.
