Since the news broke that the CEO of Radek Clothing, Foluke Radeke Kupoluyi will be turning 50 in a few days, many have been wondering what the secret of her youthful look is.
“It is the grace of God”, she explained. “It runs in my family. We don’t age fast”.
How dies she feel turning 50? “I feel so great. I feel happy and I thank God for the gift of life which is the most important of all because it is when you are alive that you can celebrate. I give God all the glory of making me see the light of the day. Attaining 50 is a big deal to me, really. I want to return all glory and honour to God who has made it possible for me to attain the age of 50. I bless the name of the Lord.
When she looks back at her life at 50, what comes to mind? What does she always thank God for? “I give God the glory because of the life he has given me. Its actually been a long journey.
The most important aspect of my life has been the journey, the entire transition, from the day I was born through my school years. It has actually been a long journey. I am 50 really. People often tell me I don’t look 50, that I look 30, I look 35, but when I look at the journey, I see that it has been a long journey. All in all, I thank God that has seen me through I am happy at where I am at the moment”.
What has been the secret of her youthful look? She does not look 50. “It runs in the family. In my family, we don’t age easily. We have small stature. Apart from that, I try to take things easy. I don’t take things to heart. I live every day as it comes. Most importantly, I purge myself of all evils. I don’t think evil, I don’t envy anyone. If you buy a home in Banana Island today, I will celebrate with you. I will be happy.
That does not mean I will start to thinking that I must have a house in Banana Island. That is why I work hard. So that anything I can afford within any reasonable period of time, I can afford it. Anything I wish, I work hard for it, I get it. So, there is a spirit of contentment in me. Contentment above all, is what has kept me looking young.
