My children make being dad the best feeling — Elumelu

Tony Elumelu

Philanthropist and businessman Tony Elumelu says his children make being a father the best feeling ever.

In an Instagram post on Sunday to mark Father’s Day, Mr Elumelu, who is married to Dr Awele, thanked his children for the unique feeling of fatherhood.

“Thanks to my children who make being a father the best feeling in the world,” the founder of Heirs Holdings wrote.

“Wishing all the fathers a Happy Father’s Day. Keep being super heroes.”

Elumelu has seven children — five girls and twin boys. Of the five girls, three were born as triplets.

During the lockdown last year occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic, the Elumelu family, like every other family, spent more time together. The billionaire became his sons’ barber while his wife made their daughters’ hairs.
