Amaju Pinnick cousin Arinola Adeniyi

Wellness coach and founder of Venivici Health Club and Urban Spa in Lagos Arinola Adeniyi has died aged 60.

Arin, as she was fondly called, passed on at First Cardiology Consultants, Lagos on Monday. Tha cause of death has not been ascertained.

The former banker was the cousin of president of the Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick.

Adeniyi opened Venivici in the early 2000s which was a novel idea at the time.

Her childhood dream was to be a banker. She, however, rose to the post of deputy general manager in the banking industry before leaving to set up Venivici.

Adeniyi was an associate of the Chartered Institute of Bankers.

Mourning her, editor of Ovation Magazine Mike Effiong said in the comments section of his Instagram post about her death that he had a chat with Adeniyi last week.

“We chatted last week about this her 21 day belly fat challenge and was urging me to join. We had a good laugh! Life!” he wrote.
