Chief Ayobamidele Abayomi Ojutelegan Ajani popularly known as Dele Momodu, but whom we the friends and close associates fondly call Bob Dee, is no doubt a man of many parts. A progressive, media icon and guru, politician with a class, worthy protégé, peace broker, and so much more. Bob Dee for the past six decades has carved a niche for himself in changing the face of African continent and of course Nigeria through his writings, books, TV presentations and lifestyle magazine (Ovation International).
I have taken some time to understudy this literary genius and I have come to the subtle conclusion that Bob Dee is a simple but an extra-ordinary being. I remember my first encounter with him in the late 90’s…. His being an epitome of humility was so amazing that I couldn’t but decide to get close to him and tap from his wealth of knowledge.
Chief Dele Momodu is a man who always loves to be very objective in his views and opinions on issues of interest regardless of whose ox is gored.
Judging from the number of years I have known Bashorun, I can say unequivocally that, like most great men who have been able to achieve success, growing up for him was not easy. But his perseverance and eclectic determination to succeed against all the odds are what have brought him this far.
After six long decades on this earth, Bob Dee has not slowed down one bit. His charm, health and upbeat attitude are an inspiration to us all. His contributions to the development of our dear country in all spheres are noncomparable.
Obviously, the only knight in armour of Yeye Mobolaji Momodu wears 60 so well. Reaching 60 is a great accomplishment, but he makes it seem easy and effortless. Hence, I pray that in the years ahead he will always be able to do what he loves to do with ease.
I pray the Almighty God in His infinite mercy continues to be with him and his entire family and grant him good health for the rest of his days on earth.
On behalf of my entire family and myself, I say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Bob Dee,
a man of vision at 60!
