Otunba Kunle Kalejaye is one man whose epithets could fill a house. Variously described as a philanthropist per excellence, an icon of rare kind, a friend of the cheated and deprived, role model, pathfinder, man with the heart of gold, pillar of the Christian faith and more. Otunba Kalejaye has become more than an inspiration, a man with a Midas touch.
Considering his successes, it sufficed here to say he’s a man of uncommon grace having succeeded where others failed, and even for that courage to go and succeed anywhere fate had taken him. Asides his legal field where he has set an uncommon records of accomplishments which may be difficult for any known player in the field to compete with, he has also registered his name in the hospitality business with Florentina Projects.
Today again, he has heavily delved into communication business. His new towering presence in the radio business has catapulted Ilese-Ijebu into the league of broadcasting stations in Nigeria via Eagle 102.5 FM.
Close sources hinted a lot of unpublished battles went underground-from being witch-hunted, persecuted and forced to fulfill some mundane and unfounded conditions bordering on mandatory association with a political party before being granted license to operate. Nobody reigns forever. What someone failed to acknowledged yesterday, out of envy and bitterness ended up being joyfully embraced by another.
His victory at the Supreme Court years ago is another pointer to the fact that he enjoys some uncommon favour from God. I once mentioned I wasn’t sure if we’ve ever had any case similar to his in the history of Nigerian democracy but who says there’s no God.
Today, I rise to acknowledge a foremost personality who has translated into a colossus by virtue of his uncommon grace, tremendous capacity and goodwill.
