Mike Adenuga Towers
Headquarters of Globacom, the emerging Nigerian telecoms giant that is in talks to purchase 50% Telkom shares in South Africa's Vodacom. It is located on the Victoria Island and owned by Mike Adenuga Jr., a publicity shy but very amiable businessman. I once tried to photograph him at a charity dinner in Ghana last December but his aide stopped me. It was the same for everybody that aimed a camera at him.
His favourite animal is the bull which he likes for his own bullishness in business terms. He has another building like this called the Bull Plaza. His company ssponsors the Nigerian football league and the mascot of the league is a raging bull. All personal totems of his.
