Every 12th of July is a day set aside to celebrate an unusual being whose mantra is centred on making life better for the people, a man who enjoys uncommon grace and blessing from the ‘I am that I am’, Otunba Kunle Kalejaye SAN. Here 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 has become more than an inspiration, a man with a Midas’ touch.
As his staunch follower, I could speak without pausing of his many wins and triumphs and 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 take him. Aside 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 successfully and heavily delved into communication business. His new towering presence in radio business has catapulted Ilese-Ijebu into the league of broadcasting stations in Nigeria via Eagle FM 102.5
Close sources hinted a lot of unpublished battles went underground-from being witch-hunted, persecuted and forced to fulfill some mundane and unfounded conditions bordering on mandatory association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 out of envy and bitterness ended up being joyfully embraced by another.
Today, I rise to share the joy of his numerous followers in celebrating this day in commemoration of the day God has graced the good people of Ilese-Ijebu with the most gracious icon.
