Who is Massad Boulos, father of the Nigerian-Lebanese married to Donald Trump’s daughter?

Massad Boulos

Lebanese business tycoon Massad Boulos is the father of Michael Boulos who is married to Tiffany Trump, the last daughter of former US President Donald Trump.

Tiffany and Michael got married on November 12 at Trump’s private estate Mar-a-Lago in Florida.

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 has four children altogether: Fares, a rapper, also known as Oyibo Rebel; Michael, heir to the business empire; and two girls Oriane, and Sophie.

Massad largely brought up his children in Lagos which explains why there were several Nigerians at the wedding including Pastor Paul Adefarasin and his wife Ifeanyi.

Massad, who runs Boulos Enterprises and SCOA Nigeria, briefly stood for election in Lebanon in 2018.

Boulos Enterprise was formed by Massad and his brothers, Anthony and Gabriel. The family were introduced to Nigeria by their father, George, who was a goldsmith who emigrated to the country in 1936 in order to sell precious metals.

According to Crunch Base, the family’s business imports Suzuki products into Nigeria as well as distributing other motorcycle parts into at least ten countries in West Africa.
