Popular socialite Segun Alawaye was said to have jumped for joy at the recent news of the death of Muslim leader, Late Arisekola Alao.
We gathered that one of the wives of Late Arisekola, Faramade was married to Segun, a popular socialite who ruled the social scene like a colossus in the 80′s and 90′s. However, when Segun had the misfortune to run into financial storm and got broke, the love of his life, Faramade jilted him and married Arisekola.
But Segun would never forgive Aare Musulumi of Yoruba land for snatching Faramade.
Surprisingly, when the news of the death of Arisekola broke, Segun Alawaye who was with a couple of friends at their usual rendezvous, requested for a bottle of an expensive Champagne claiming that it was for his enemy.
Although, most of the friends celebrated with him, one or two however disapproved the celebration.
It would be recalled that Segun Alawaye was very influential in the life of Forte Oil chairman Femi Otedola when they were both growing up. He had rich parents that helped him to become successful very early in life, but things took a downward turn for him that he had no option than to team up with the late MIC boss, Tunji Okusanya. It was when Otedola who had become so rich then learnt about his blossom friend working with MIC that he decided to lift him back into reckoning.
