The name Prince Adebayo Shamsideen may not ring a bell but the mention of ‘All Rounder’ alerts many about a distinguished Remo son whose name is virtually synonymous with hustling, success and generosity and who has grown to become a huge inspiration source to every hustler in Remoland and beyond.
This National President of Amalgamated Commercial Motorcycle Riders Association of Nigeria (ACOMORA) and Group Managing Director of All Rounder Group Nigeria, Prince Adebayo Shamsideen Apelogun didn’t rise to his enviable height overnight. Those who know his story swore he had his hands in many pies and was not ashamed of engaging in any lawful commercial activity that would fetch him money. As a matter of fact, he got the nickname ‘All Rounder’ because he was involved in all manner of hustling as long as it’s legitimate and would devote all his energy to such ventures.
All Rounder will do any nation proud as her illustrious son, not only in terms of personal achievements as a successful businessman, but more on his overwhelming contributions to his immediate environment and humanity.
Today, he’s talk of the town and people are failing over themselves to get his attention. His GRA Sagamu residence and his Sagamu-Sabo office of All Rounder Ventures has become a Galilee to all manner of people seeking assistance in varying degrees. Someone once hinted that what he spends on people on a weekend alone is enough for him to stop coming home but he seems to find pleasure in doing so, yet none of these get into his head. He’s still his normal self, humble, generous and no airs.
On Thursday 28th of July, 2022 at about 5pm, my humble self ran into him as he was rushing towards the check-in counter of Azman Air at Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport. All alone and managing his luggage himself. Meanwhile, earlier same day, I had sighted the controversial Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo with loads of aides and security personnel.
I honestly wish more leaders and politicians will learn from this rare being, the beauty of selfless service and the imperative of transcendental leadership. His mantra is centered on making life better for the people and leaving people better than he met them. May his kind never cease in the land.
