Popular Lagos Prince, Kazeem Austin Eletu Odibo, the last son of late Chief Bamidele Gbadamosi Eletu-Odibo, of Osapa kingdom Lekki, Lagos, celebrated his 41st birthday few days ago at his multi-million naira palatial mansion, popularly called White House, in Osapa London.
Family, friends/fans from all walks of life trooped to his house to pay homage.
Though, his plan was to celebrate the birthday with few of his close allies but people surprised by showing up to celebrate with him and wish him well on his special day.
Prince Kazeem is from the royal Eletu Odibo family which historically serves as the Chief Kingmaker who crowns the Oba of Lagos.
His family inherited over 250,000 hectares of land from their late father, Chief Bamidele Gbadamosi Eletu-Odibo, which makes them one of the biggest land owners in Lagos.
Prince Kazeem Eletu Odibo is the last son of their father but he had a rough start; he started life as a scavenger, in Ajegunle.
He was doing this to make ends-meet while growing up. He later worked at a car wash, where he washed vehicles. From there, he was introduced to a bus conductor job while he was still in Primary school. He moved on to become a Danfo driver later. He was a bus conductor for 3 years and drove Danfo for 9 years. He became a Danfo driver when he was in secondary school.
This Prince loves to remind those who care to listen that, he has been through it all in life.
One of the unforgettable moments was when his mum had to fight his then ‘Oga’ to desist from taking him out as a bus conductor.
Prince Kazeem Eletu-Odibo had many times slept inside buses and under the bridge in Ajegunle. His mum, Mrs Janet Eletu-Odibo, worked at a local restaurant; where she would pack all the remnants to feed her children at home.
