On Sunday, November 24, 2013, the Exquisite Lady of the Year, ELOY, awards was held in Victoria Island, Lagos. The event was attended by some celebrities. Uti Nwachukwu and Okanrende Maria both anchored the awards show.
At the occasion, Tonto Dikeh was announced as the Film Actress of the Year. As she mounted the stage to thank everyone, who supported her through the ranks, the controversial actress also used the occasion to introduce the man in her life. Before now, Tonto had been posting pictures of her boyfriend on her Instagram page, a photo sharing social media platform now commonly used by many celebrities.
It is no more news that one Michael Olusola Awujoola is the man behind the sudden joy the Rivers State-born actress is experiencing lately. But what many may not know is the dirty secrets this rich dude, simply called Sola is hiding from some people.
We were reliably informed by a source that Sola is not what he is making the world to believe about him. “Forget about the expensive cars Sola is posing with, he is not the real owners of those vehicles. I can tell you without mincing words that the Bugatti he flaunted online isn’t his own,” the source quipped to Aproko247
It was also divulged to us that Sola likes anything in skirt. “His (Sola) love for women is legendary. Once he meets a new catch, he goes extra mile to flaunt his affluence before her. The problem is that he doesn’t even speak good English. His English intonation is mostly mixed with his Ibadan ascent. Tonto must have been moved by one of his show offs because I don’t see anything special in this Ibadan boy,” our source observed.
The source narrated further to Aproko247 that, “you see, Sola didn’t come from a rich family. He even struggled to travel to the United Kingdom some years ago. He has a babymama in Dublin, Ireland. His son is also in Kent in England with his mother, who is his wife. I don’t know if Tonto knows about these.
“Sola’s father has a house in Ibadan. His father’s house is at Felele in Orita Challenge, Ibadan. The house is a green one storey building and is located by the roadside. If you know that area in Ibadan very well, you will get Sola’s father’s house. It is just opposite Hotel De Bayswater in Ibadan. It is on the main road,” added our source.
When questioned on what Sola does for a living, the source explained that Sola is the guy behind the purchase of gold plated accessories most Nigerian celebrities flaunt on social media platforms.
“See, Sola is the guy that bought that gold plated iPhone for Tonto. The guy is a concierge. He helps these celebs to shop for some things in the UK for a fee. He gets some reasonable percentage from the deal,” the source said.
“Sola Awujola has always wanted cheap publicity. So, I am not surprised that he is using Tonto to do that,” our source submitted.
