I think I am at a point in my life where I should give back to the country that has helped me get to where I am today
To deepen the culture of celebrating ‘inspiring and successful’ stories in Africa, PLEASURES Magazine (PleasuresMagazine.com.ng) presents the November / December 2021 issue of your luxury Pan-African Entrepreneurial and Luxury with a special edition to commemorate the success story of Afolabi Kehinde Oke. The goal-oriented CEO who just celebrated his jubilee anniversary in style is an entrepreneur who has excelled as a Nigerian business executive, hotelier, techpreneur and CEO of Global Infoswift Consulting Limited (GICL).
At PLEASURES Magazine, we believe the energetic CEO’s accomplishments are indeed remarkable and inspiring, adding that his story is worth telling to inspire young Africans. Despite the challenges, entrepreneurs like Afolabi are proof that there is hope for Africa.
Afolabi, who told PLEASURES magazine that it takes courage, guts and a lot of hard work to be successful, said in this exclusive interview: “I believe I am a passionate young serial entrepreneur. I believe so much in the Nigerian dream. I had the opportunity to go and do other things outside of this country, but I think tomorrow is very bright for all of us if we play our roles well. So I decided to invest my time and my life in this country as an entrepreneur, to develop people. I love to mentor young people and help give hope to the seemingly bleak future of many in this country, I have tried to do this in a number of ways, and I still do. “
The serial investor also told Pleasures Magazine that at 50, “going up to the fifth floor, for me is no different. I still feel like I have a lot to give to our nation Nigeria. “
He declared that his purpose in life was in accord with Martin Luther King Jr. who said: “Do not follow where the way can lead, but follow where there is no way and leave a mark.”
Afolabi said “Martin Luther King Jr was a promoter of non-violence. I am also a promoter of non-violence. He dreamed that one day his grandchildren would be judged not on the color of their skin but on the content of their character. ”
Speaking further, he told PLEASURES magazine he believed that “we are a generation where we have to promote our good morals as a duty, not to fight the riding or ask for blood, it is about letting take out the most positive things in life intellectually, not by pulling the sword. “
He stressed that he believed “also in the effectiveness of prayer because if you look at the people of Israel, they have fought all battles trusting God to lead them, it is God who always has them. outstripped to give them victory in their battles.
“I believe so much like the sons of Issachar who understood the times and the seasons, I think we are at the time when we have to dig into the situations that are against the people and start to form great leaders. We thank God. that we are still united as a nation. I am convinced that we are united and divided, we are falling. I believe that much can be accomplished through prayers for our nation, Nigeria. “
Life for him, even at the head of four companies, should be about giving back to society.
In his words: “I think I am at a point in my life where I should give back to the country that has helped me get to where I am today, give back to society, help solve the leadership issues of ‘today. Leadership is about integrity. It is not about amassing wealth for yourself. Leadership is about serving and changing the norm and making positive change. I have the “When Young People Pray” initiative and hope to promote my NGO called Afolabi Kehinde Oke Foundation (AKO) which will help reach the less privileged in society and empower young people.
