Tony Elumelu, Nigerian banker and Chairman of Pan-African UBA and Tony Elumelu Foundation set Instagram agog on Friday, August 9, 2019 with a post that shows him sampling and buying roasted corn along Expressway in Lagos.
The amiable businessman and philanthropist set the tone of reactions when he wrote: “Jollof is nice but some days we sample roasted corn along the Lagos express. Some cravings die hard”.
His gesture appears more remarkable because a day earlier he had been a guest of President Macky Sall of Senegal and shared jollof rice with him at the Presidential Palace.
The woman in the video was communicating with him in igbo language, persuading him to buy the roasted corn. Tony responded by testing several corn with happiness in the express road. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1ETCByJyzs
