Business Insider can be forgiven for thinking DJ Xclusive is the son of Africa’s richest woman, Folorunsho Alakija.
After all, they share the same surname, and some Nigerian media platforms made the same error very recently.
The United States business and technology news website compiled a list of the ‘world’s hottest billionaire offspring’ and they placed ‘Empire mates entertainment’ official DJ, Rotimi Alakija, on the list coming in at #3.
See what was written on the site;
“Folorunsho Alakija, No. 698 on the Forbes list and the richest woman in Africa, is worth $2.6 billion. Rotimi, 30, is better known as DJ Xclusive, his stage name as a British Nigerian DJ, producer, and artist.
With a degree in Financial Computing, he began his career as a DJ in 2003 at U.K. dance clubs like Vendome and Tribeca Nightclub to make extra money. He’s since gone on to win awards, becoming an On Air Radio DJ for Cool FM Lagos, and is signed to the EME Record Label. His recent singles include “Ibebe” and “Gal Bad.” You can follow DJ Xclusive on Twitter.”
For the records, Folorunsho Alakija has four sons, and the quartet of them share a close resemblance to their father, Modupe Alakija.
