Lebanese business tycoon Massad Boulos, father of Michael Boulos who is engaged to Tiffany Trump, the last daughter of former US President Donald Trump, has spoken on the engagement.

Born in Kfaraakka, near the Lebanese border with Syria, Massad was a child when his family moved to the US in the 1970s.

Massad’s life changed after he married Sarah Fadoul, daughter of tycoon Zouhair Fadoul. He was a student at the time.

Sarah, who was settled in Nigeria, founded the Society for the Performing Arts in Nigeria (SPAN).

Fadoul brought his young son-in-law into the family business, Fadoul Group, which now has interests in 13 African countries including construction, and vehicle sales, assembly and servicing from cars to earth-movers and tractors.

Massad’s son Michael and Tiffany have been in the news since Michael proposed to Tiffany with a $1.2 million engagement ring on the day before Trump left the White House for the last time.

An ardent Trump supporter, Massad shared with Daily Mail his excitement at the forthcoming union.

“It’s great news, it’s been an amazing love story and it will continue to be,” he said.

The billionaire described Tiffany as a beautiful young woman and a very smart one, too, adding that Michael was very lucky.

“This is just one chapter that they’re starting now on a long journey of hopefully love and prosperity,” he said.

Of Trump, the long-time Republican said the former US leader is “the best president in recent US history; and the one with the biggest achievements by far.”

Massad has four children altogether. Fares, 30, a rapper, also known as Oyibo Rebel; Michael, 23, heir to the business empire; and two girls Oriane, 20 and eight-year-old Sophie.

Massad said Fares took after his mother’s artistic qualities.

The Boulos children were largely brought up in Lagos.
