Billionaire Dr. Bolu Akin-Olugbade will always be remembered for wearing his modesty on his sleeves and having no apologies about it. Even though he was a certified billionaire, he didnโ€™t like to be called one.

As he said in a dated interview, having only $250 million in cash and a few more millions in other currencies should not qualify one for such appellation. Typical of him, but his lifestyle and homes across the world are at variance with such modesty!

Dr. Akin-Olugbade, a successful lawyer with a doctorate in Company Law from Cambridge University, and an unabashed lover of high-end Rolls Royce cars, was globally reputed as one of the largest collectors of Rolls Royce. He told an interviewer some years back: โ€œI bought my first Rolls Royce in 1984 and now, I am on my ninth Rolls Royce. I believe in dressing well and I travel a lot.โ€

He was so obsessed with the brand that he had 10 Rolls Royce which has his customized plate numbers- โ€˜BOLU 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 to 10โ€

Until his death, he was the chairman of Bolu Akin-Olugbade Limited, and GMT Limited.

He was 64 years old and survived by his wife Ladunni and four sons.
