Shade Ladipo’s Comment About Paddy Adenuga Is Making Us Ask “Should We Only Be Inspired By ‘Grass To Grace’ Stories And Not ‘Grace To More Grace’ Stories?”

   

Last month, Paddy Adenuga, the son of Mike Adenuga, the CEO of Globacom, shared an inspiring story of how he almost bought an upstream, exploration and production business in the Netherlands, owned by US oil giant, Chevron.

He said he was 29-years old when he made the bid without the help of his family. Narrating the story through his blog, he said he hoped to pass on the story and the lessons learnt to the next generation

Paddy’s article has generated conversations online, While some applauded his courage to have attempted such huge deal, others believed that he already has his father’s name and influence to ride on.

Media personality, Shade Ladipo is one of such persons who believed his father’s name got him everything he has. According to her, his article reeks of entitlement and privilege.

She wrote,

I wonder what that article by Paddy was trying to achieve …. it reeked of entitlement and privilege Swiss village Townhouse in London Nicolas Lavrov I’m laughing because in his mind this is a success story based on his own achievements

Can someone tell Paddy Adenuga to take several focking seats at the back and Cut the bull shit Your privilege and fathers name got your through to exactly where you are Accept it & run with it Even Davido has accepted his own Ugggh

‘How could a 29-year-old Nigerian have found himself in a position to buy Chevron’s business in the Netherlands?’ With his fathers influence Dumbass And he probably wasn’t wondering how but why, especially since we all assumed you were a lazy bum

He went to church for Blessings Guys I can’t keep reading Abeg Let me carry my 2 left legs and gaaan hustle for money with Bamidele and Iya Moyo

It’s amazing how being an entrepreneur is considered so cool that everybody and their rich son now want to add it their story But as shallow as his article is, Ive heard some people say LBS should use it as a Case Study and I laugh in Chinese

Having an advantage and making headway doesn’t make you less an entrepreneur but pls try not to pay yourself on the back Consider yourself lucky & pay it forward

This is not beef oh because studies have shown that children born in wealth hardly ever make their own legacy It’s just laughable how no one can see through the rubbish Take away every Access he has & I posit to you Paddy Adenuga could not have achieved anything he did End
