Lagos business tycoon, Yusuf Babalola, the upwardly mobile young man behind one of Nigerias flourishing conglomerates, Yozooph Nigeria Limited headquaterd in the heart of Lagos is 40!

To mark the special day, the unassuming businessman, who has friends in high places, gathered a few of family and friends to a thanksgiving prayer session at his Banana Island residence which basically was organised to thank God for his benevolence over the years.

The big 40 is a landmark occasion for the Ogun State born businessman who has moulded his company, Yozooph Nigeria Limited into one of the leading companies in Nigeria, even in the face of insurmountable clogs and impossibilities. He has done remarkably well for himself.

The company's rising profile is a clear testament to his leadership capability.

Unknown to many, the Yozooph Nigeria consists of subsidiaries that are leading the pack in key sectors of the Nigerian economy- ranging from the Yozooph Nigeria Limited, a brand known for its leading status in property and gas.

Then, there's Coolmine Nig. Ltd, Builders Nigeria Ltd and other thriving businesses like Eleven 07 Nigeria Ltd and Mobivation Nigeria Ltd playing strong in construction and hospitality. Besides the fact that he has built a strong brand from practically the bottom and his long history of integrity, is an attribute worth celebrating.

While the big 40 obviously calls for celebration having recorded tremendous success and achievements in the last four decades. The Chairman of Yozooph Nigeria Limited is not particularly throwing a lavish bash.

Instead, he has decided to mark the day with Islamic prayers and a low-key celebration at his residence.

The priority to the now more spiritually inclined Yusuf Babalola is how to give back to indigent people and supporting humanitarian projects across the country.
