|BUGATTI YEAR OF THE DRAGON|
There's no doubt about it that Mr. Kola Aluko is a certified billionaire many times over and not in Naira oooo. Just in case you are wondering. We cannot stop marveling about this gentle colossus, who used to be one of the quiet made men until very recently.
Close friend & business partner of another super rich dude in the person of the Chairman/CEO of SPOG Petrochemicals- Otunba Jide Omokore, remember the super rich dude that shook Dubai a couple of months ago with a $8m dollars super duper wedding he is also a good friend of so many other highly connected individuals. The way Mr. Kola Aluko rolls, many other rich peeps or should we say wealthy individuals would most definitely learn one or 2 things from him on how to have great fun.
Should we begin to talk about this man's different homes? The 2 in Los Angeles, California, USA is out of this world. There are humongous homes in Monaco, France, London and many other great parts of the world. He is also said to be one of the owners of an apartment at the most expensive apartment building in Manhattan, New York. He loves to stay at the Plaza near or opposite Bergdoff Goodman in New York.
Let's move away from homes or edifices to cars, Kola Aluko is a car buff extraordinaire, think about the super cars and he has it. He owns 2 of the best and fastest normal cars in the world, the Bugatti Veyron. One of the Bugatti is a 2 million Pounds plus Bugatti 'Year of the Dragon' a very limited edition Bugatti which was made to commemorate the Chinese Year of the Dragon last year.
Mr Aluko is also the biggest black Ferrari client in the UK, he buys his from H.R Owen Britain's leading luxury motor dealer. Apart from having in his garages around the world some of those machines dreams are made of, he personally owns a Formular 1 racing team called Kessel racing team, just like the McLaren, India, Ferrari teams. To show how he loves racing so much, he even hired Ferrari instructors to train him & his team, the only man to do so.

Away from all of that, this very very liquid gentleman is also one of the only 4 Nigerians to own the $50m plus valued Bombadier Global Express Private Jet, that's apart from Aliko Dangote, Otunba Mike Adenuga & the richest black woman in the world, Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija.
Let's now reveal a little bit more about the legend of Mr. Kola Aluko, the elder brother of multimillionaire Polo buff, Kunle Aluko. He once flew in a renowned diamond jeweler from New York, USA and commissioned him to build a $2.5 million diamond collar for his second wife, Teni Edu. He had seen the same necklace on one of the Trumps and had asked for it, but since they didn't have it for retail sale it had to be built for madam. So jeweler was flown in on Kola's jet, madam's neck was measured and then collar was later delivered made to measure.
At Kola Aluko 40 plus birthday at one of his private homes in Los Angeles, California last year, we think he had clocked 42 or 43, his birthday party was hosted by 2 of the best pop icons in the US, in the persons of Jay Z & P-Diddy. Both stars were the ones that sent out the invitations for the party.
Whenever Kola visits his favourite joint, 1 Oak, it's like the late Michael Jackson has come to bless the joint with his distinguished presence. We hear that the owner waits to come to take him in, and remains at his beck and call all through, while the spotlight is focused on him and his guests till he leaves. He is probably one of there most valued customer. Like someone said and we quote ''he is the most interesting black character he has come across in a long while''. Kola supposedly single handedly sponsored Kanye West's Paris Fashion sometime ago.
One other very interesting thing about Mr. Aluko is that he loves the Scandinavians a lot. Especially the Swedish.
Kola recently joined the rarefied league of owners of the most expensive yachts in the world. Atop this pile is a boat known as History Supreme or Baia Supreme, said to be around $4.5 to 4.8billion Dollars and owned by Malaysian businessman, Robert Kuok, there's Roman Abramovich's $1.5billion Eclipse and many more, but Kola Aluko's Hessen built Galactica Star valued at $100million is most probably the most expensive boat owned by a black man. The humongous boat even very recently won at the Monaco Boat Show 2013.
The Galactica Star super yacht is 65 meter long of super luxury. The yacht in September of this year won 3 prestigious awards at the Monaco Yacht Show- Best Yacht design, La Belle Classic Crest & finally a Baccarat Crystal Sail Trophy presented by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, for winning the Prix du Design which is giving for the Most Innovative, Elegant & Distinguished design at the Monaco Yacht Show.
