FAB@40: The CEO of Under40CEOs Clocks 40
 “The first forty years of life give us the text: the next thirty supply the commentary.” –Arthur Schopenhauer

Often described as a serial entrepreneur, Familusi Akin Babajide “Mr. FAB” is a Creative Entrepreneur, Speaker, Life Coach, Mentor, CEO of FAB Group, Bata Media, Executive Producer and Host of Under40CEOs and How to Make it in Lagos. An unrepentant creative and First West African Moderator at The Cannes Lions Festival Of Creativity, France (2016), the largest gathering of creatives worldwide.

Raised in Lagos, Babs (as he is sometimes called) attended Kings College Lagos and then University of Lagos (UNILAG) where his fashion consciousness was aroused. He once said in an interview “From the early stage, I would say it’s my dad. My dad was a very fashionable guy. He now made the mistake of sending me to Kings College Lagos where boys there were all about fashion and then University of Lagos (UNILAG). What I used to tell people then was that Unilag student even if they don’t have money to dress the way they would have loved to when they were in school, just give them a job afterward and watch them. I guess it was all those factors that pushed me into fashion.”

In 2001, he began a clothing line, Exclamations Couture for men with the goal of tailoring bespoke wears with the finest of fabrics. This brand has clothed various A-list Nigerian Artistes, businessmen and men with a good taste for a superb finish. The outfit has also held successful fashion shows in Nigeria and the United Kingdom and also signed styling deals with major music, lifestyle and fashion magazines including MODEMEN, BLAST and ELAN magazines.

The proud father of two lovely girls shared an appreciative post on his Instagram page.

Great is your mercy towards me. Your loving kindness towards me. Your tender mercies I see. Day after day. Forever faithful towards me. Always providing for me. Great is your mercy towards me. Great is your grace. _____________ Blessed be the most high God who was and is and is to come. Thank you for the day I was born. Thank you for being my shield in the days when as I child I knew nothing nor could I protect myself. Thank you for my parents. Thank you for keeping me through school. Thank you for the days when you proved I was of more worth than the birds of the air. Thank you for being my everything. If I had but a million tongues to tell of your faithfulness, it will not suffice. Ha! Who is Babajide that you’re so mindful of him? I’m overwhelmed by your mercy and favour. Your goodness is from everlasting to everlasting. I love you Lord. I bless you Lord. I will sing of your faithfulness and your praise shall forever be in my mouth. ___________ 40 years have passed by and by your grace alone I stand. Thank you Father. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Holy Spirit. I look forward to the next 40 years filled with your favour, love, mercy, grace, peace and faithfulness. #fab@40 #fabis40 #fabsday #JesusisLord

Nigerian singer Davido has always cultivated a culture of sharing is caring in all aspects of his life.


The Nigerian star Davido shares his heart equally with three women: two baby mamas who gave birth to his daughters and his girlfriend Chioma.
And that is not enough. The musician has always been praised for always helping the people around him despite their status in the community.

Now, the 26-year-old father of two has caused a stir on Twitter after casually saying his watchman owns two houses and three cars.

Yes, as you struggle to at least get free rides on Mr sponsor’s car, Davido is busy elevating his employees.
It all started when a tweep named Obong Roviel shared his excitement over news that the musician was working with upcoming act, Lyta.

Obong praised Davido for always supporting everyone who approaches him either in terms of growing their music brand or elevating their businesses.
A proud and happy Davido then said on top of helping Lyta, he has made sure his watchman has cars and houses.

Scrolling through the comment section, nearly everyone agreed with Obong and echoed his sentiments.

Despite the singer being riddled with controversy in the past, he has managed to show he has a heart of gold.
