According to Vanity Fair magazine April edition it states that land-registry documents show that five apartments, for a combined $123 million, are owned by companies under the Rose of Sharon name, all based in the Isle of Man. owned by Folorunsho Alakija, the Nigerian billionaire who is a part-owner of Famfa Oil Ltd.
Having being to the Richest building in Europe myself and viewing one of their grandest apartments, one of the question I asked the Candy and Candy’s sales agent is whether any Nigerian live in their building, as I was viewing for a Nigerian client who wanted me to view their $20 million dollar apartment on his behalf before he flew over for final viewing. It would be certainly good to know if any Nigerians were already in the building, already known in the Property Market as High end property cash buyers.
However, to my disappointment she told me that there isn’t any African in the building yet not to talk about a Nigerian, however, she was looking forward to welcoming the Africans to their Domain, having already every other continent present.
As to the calibre of people there, well you can see them on Wikipedia!. All I know is most of the residents have their apartments as 2nd homes and well you have to be milking it to own one of these luscious pads. I was simply bowled over with the finest furniture you can ever imagine. Like mirrors turning to TV’s!.
Perhaps Alakija is indeed an owner of one of the most expensive apartments in the world, I doubt it if she indeed buy Five of them and if she did, she certainly hasn’t moved in yet!.
