    Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
    May the Lord grant them peace of mind to enjoy their laboured in jesus name(AMEN).

    These are all definitely rich kings however I feel we need to do more home work as I feel Oba Idowu Oniru is worth quite a few bob as well. Think of all the land He owns in prime parts of Victoria Island plus all His other business Ventures. Am shocked as He is in surely in the top 3 front runners.
