Billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, is known for his impact in the business sector. He is also not doing badly on the home front, as he is known to be a doting father to his children— Tolani, Florence (DJ Cuppy), Temioluwa and Fewa.

For one, he has been consistent in cheering them on and celebrating them on their special days. On June 2, 2021, his only son and last child, Fewa, marked his 21st birthday and the proud father wrote on Instagram, “Happy birthday, Fewa. Papa loves you.”

On another occasion in September 2020, the business mogul shared a video of him and his son cooking in the kitchen.

Indeed, Otedola has made his daughters the envy of many as he is very supportive of their careers. Tolani is a singer, who has always got the backing of her dad. In October 2017, he showed up with his friends when she organised a musical showcase at Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos.

In November 2019, DJ Cuppy hosted a fundraising dinner tagged ‘Save the Children in the Northeast’ under the umbrella of her The Cuppy Foundation. Aside from her father, other notable personalities who attended the event included the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo; and Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote. While Otedola donated N5bn at the event, Dangote parted with N500m.

In May 2021, Cuppy acknowledged her father’s influence in her life. She said, “I don’t talk about this much; but on mornings like this, waking up at our penthouse in Monaco, my heart is filled with so much gratitude. I am honoured and blessed to have a father as hardworking as mine.

“Despite building my own ‘Cuppy’ empire, the truth is that many of the privileges I enjoy are purely due to Femi Otedola’s blood, sweat and tears over the years. My only prayer is to one day be able to give my own children at least half the love and generosity I have received.”

In January 2020, Otedola and his wife, Nana, visited Temi, an actress and fashion enthusiast, on the set of ‘Citation’, a movie directed by Kunle Afolayan. Surprised by their visit, Temi gushed on Instagram, “My parents came to surprise me on location for #CitationTheMovie.”

Later that year, in September, Otedola bought posh Ferrari sport cars for his three daughters. Posing beside the cars, DJ Cuppy shared a picture on Instagram with the caption, “Papa took us shopping and bought one of each. #FerrariPortofino #CuppyDat.”
