  4. That's a nice article but its inconclusive! There are countless other people who do this sort of charity work! What about mike adenuga that gives billions in scholarships,even Ojy Okpe the model has an AIDS foundation, n has been catering for many kids living with the disease,uju ojemba has fed homeless peoeple for years now! Pls next time get a more comprehensive list.and I hope nigerians learn from them,God puts us in a position in order to give back.

  9. And why is Sade Okoya even mention ed when there are other well deserving people... please focus on other well deserving, well meaning Nigerians. Charity should be seen more as a sacrifice. i DONT RILI THINK HER DEEDS ARE WORTHY OF MENTION.

  10. whats the criteria you have used to write this your article?
    are you just showcasing some of nigeria's top business executives who happen to be involved in charitable works,or the top nigerian executives who have contributed the most to charity?
    if the former is the case then this is a total wash.
    besides when did shade okoya become a top business executive?
    the only individual who succinctly fits the bill without any question is kana nwakwo

  11. @ anonymous, 27 September, 2012 08:18, you are totally wrong, it doesn't have to pinch before its celebrated.
    Why do you congratulate Kanu? So you think it pinches him. Pls get out of your sad, miserable and 'bitter I am not Sade Okoya' life. Its a worthy course is what matters. She might as well have divested the money in other things e.g acquire more money. Not all millionaires are philanthropic. you have to remember that

  18. Na wa o. Ladun has gone back to her inefficient ways.

  19. Anonymous 8:18 I disagree with you. Shade should be celebrated for her charitable contributions. Are you her bank manager to know whether it is pinching her pockets?

    Naija pple need to stop hating unnecessary. People give, you insult them. People don't give, you insult them. Who made you the judge of what type/amount of giving is enough?

    Ask the families of the people she is sponsoring if she has a heart of gold.

    Give what you can, and let others do the same.

    Thank you to everyone making a positive difference in peoples lives. May God replenish your pockets and meet you at your point of need.

    Kanu was born in Owerri but is from Arochukwu and has recently traced his origins to Ihiala. Who said he's from Imo?

  24. @anon 8.18 you are the true voice of envy. Even if shade gives 1million scholarships a year you would still abuse her. People like you should be pitied. Pathetic

  25. @ all I am anon 8.18 and I am not a hater
    I might have been hard on shade but I definitely don't envy her
    I am entitled to your opinion and you are, yours
