    Uncle Bill…

    • Weezy March 13, 2016 at 6:42 pm

      As in.

      Did he or will he:
      – come to your college graduation or send you money to mark the event?
      – ask after you by name while talking to your father one evening?
      – have your family over to his house just to hang out, and inviting no one else?

      If the answer is no, Bill Gates is not your uncle. Sorry.

      • ATL’s finest March 13, 2016 at 8:21 pm

        @ Weezy pls calm down & enjoy the humor. It’s like me saying ‘Mama Oprah or mama O’ does that mean she’s gonna attend any of my events? No but the grace or the zeal they purposes or their humor makes us love them. So Yes, Uncle Bill is the Ish ?Thank U.

      • Fashionista March 13, 2016 at 8:32 pm

        Where’s your sense of humour, really!

      • FasholasLover March 13, 2016 at 8:40 pm

        There is money and there is money.
        That intro b like d Mrs and Bill Gates were meeting for the first time. I wonder how bill Gates became “Uncle”. Mr. Gates woulda bn ok. If he does not do any of the above, including call on your birthday, then he ain’t your uncle.

      • Ayodele March 13, 2016 at 8:52 pm

        Pained much? The girl was obviously joking

      • MeMyself&I March 13, 2016 at 9:46 pm

        Okay, then let us enjoy the humour all round. Nana is in awe! Money get levels

      • Jamb question March 13, 2016 at 10:40 pm

        My uncle does none of those things. It does not stop him from being my uncle, We are just not close yet we share the same surname. Next time you greet someone uncle this or aunty that, mama. mommy or daddy and they are not related to you by blood ask yourself these questions. As in.

      • Jaygirl March 13, 2016 at 10:54 pm

        Relax it’s not that serious ah ah!

      • Thsesis March 14, 2016 at 11:40 am

    • Jade March 14, 2016 at 3:33 pm

      I like the odetola family. They seem close to each other and cool. Infact, uncle Femi looks handsome. Uncle Bill looks not bad. Thank you, for your scholarships though. I need to visit mama Oprah. Where my cousin Bey at?

      Lool people that are family friends with Valentino… Cuppy that was on DVF’s show. “FAMZING”, you wish ! Lmao just pray that God elevates you to that level?

      • FasholasLover March 13, 2016 at 8:46 pm

        If you buy an obscene amount of clothes/spend serious dosh on fashion shopping, Valentino and all the gbogbo designers will have your number on speed dial. It ain’t rocket science.

    • nene March 13, 2016 at 9:17 pm

      aunty melinda.lmfao

  • Anon March 13, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    Even among billionaires, there are levels.

    Look at the look on Nana Otedola’s face. I will be awestruck too.

    • hummm March 14, 2016 at 3:48 am

      You mean the real billionaires or the wannabe billionaires in debt. Shoes get size cuz Bill is not at their level.

  • GirlOnTop March 13, 2016 at 6:17 pm

  • Nadine March 13, 2016 at 6:18 pm

    “Uncle” Bill kwa? Elizabeth biko no fall my hand na! Allow Florence to do that famzing stuff cos thats her job. I know that Florence will keep announcing this at events/clubs in New York/London till rapture occurs…lol

    • Rolly March 13, 2016 at 9:06 pm

      Lol @ you calling them by their English names. Took me a while to understand your comment. But don’t be salty now, it’s a harmless joke. They were just excited on their parent’s behalf….who no like good things?

  • missyfab March 13, 2016 at 6:22 pm

    Na wa o! Success is everybody’s friend….. money too good……hian! “Uncle” Bill ke…. is okay….

    • Jamb question March 13, 2016 at 10:49 pm

      I have actually met aunty Nana way back when I was in JS2., lovely lady, I never ever called her or any of the other older women Mrs this or that. It is just not done in our culture.

      • We hear March 14, 2016 at 9:04 am

        @jamb question,Haaaa now you have gone ridiculous. There are like 20 comments from you alone defence lawyer for people who do not care about your existence? Ok we get it. It was a joke plus Uncle Femi is your mothers, cousins step brother in-law. Happy?

      • goldfinch March 14, 2016 at 9:50 am

        lol………….You remind me of this part of Naija Single girls post about BN commenters:

        “………Bella Naija audience appear like they roll with the same class of people & I keep wondering why I forgot to add BN comment section as no 26 on my 25 places to meet a rich husband in Lagos.
        For instance if the caption of a post reads “George Tinubu Fashola weds Damilola Tonto Obanikoro, the comment section takes the following formats.

        “Really? No wonder I saw Fred Agbaje, the younger brother of Tinibu at Walmarts on Saturday”
        “Awww…so happy for Tonto. Tonto if you are reading this say hi to Kiki, Bimbo and Eku. We should have lunch sometime”
        “Coventry Class of 2012 rocks. Already getting ready for Tonto’s bridal shower!!!”………….”

  • Natu March 13, 2016 at 6:29 pm

    Real squad goals!!!! I can’t wait to reach billionaire status!!!

    • jhennique March 14, 2016 at 11:19 am

  • ola March 13, 2016 at 7:27 pm

  • Apples March 13, 2016 at 8:34 pm

    • Moyo March 15, 2016 at 1:22 pm

      You really cracked up with this comment

  • Rolly March 13, 2016 at 9:04 pm

    It’s really cute to see how their entire family were starstruck. From the parents in the pic to the children posting the picture. I find it a bit humbling actually…a lot of Nigerians place them on a pedestal but this just proves they are “normal”

  • july March 13, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    The internet sef, it was obviously a light hearted joke. The dollar, nepa and fuel issues as made us loose our sense of humour, e go better. My dear famz him jor, nd she might just b trying to be a respectful african child, hence d ‘uncle’.

    • Cynical March 13, 2016 at 10:06 pm

      @july,anyone in naija right now with a sense of humor is a trooper o. Everything is soooo bleak right now,. Anyway,Like my people regularly say, God dey.

  • o March 13, 2016 at 9:45 pm

    Ppl cant even recognize a joke again…

  • Jamb question March 13, 2016 at 10:42 pm

    My uncle does none of those things. It does not stop him from being my uncle, We are just not close yet we share the same surname. Next time you greet someone uncle this or aunty that, mama. mommy or daddy and they are not related to you by blood ask yourself these questions. As in.

    Only a dim light bulb would not realise that this is clear a show of respect and light hearted joker.

  • Ariere March 13, 2016 at 10:42 pm

    Celebrities to the point of bn perceived as demi gods in their Homeland; but just another regular wealthy Man with his Wife in that Event…

    The entire family even had to famz about meeting Mr. Gates.

    Life is just a Pot of Beans. Ur biggest Purchase is the value of Someone else’s token.

    By the way, Temi calling Bill Gates her uncle is just Humour. Y’all should get over urselves and just work to elevate ur current level. Her parents got to meet him.its worth famzing about: Billions of people won’t ever get this Moment.

    • oversabi March 14, 2016 at 2:44 am

      I dont know about being starstruck. Y’all should read the piece that was penned by the founder of LEAP Africa about her Bill Gates picture. No be only dem get Bill Gates pisho. The man is in many places where he invests in the US. Yes, he is not everywhere but to take pisho with am no hard like that..

    • Thsesis March 14, 2016 at 11:51 am

      Bill Gates now ur God? I beg park well.

  • oversabi March 14, 2016 at 2:40 am

    Wow, I did not know that Bill Gates was related to Mr. Otedola. Amazing!! Abi this na influence peddling? Make I rest my komputa

  • oversabi March 14, 2016 at 2:45 am

    Just have to be in the right grad school

  • swagg1 March 14, 2016 at 3:38 am

    Inferiority, social climber and attache, when the hell did Bill gate become a sudden uncle? Girls, you and your parents need to develop a charity of the same magnitude as Bill Gate, instead of running a brainless blog , dee jay and looting public fund scam aka subsidy scam. Shameless ppl.

    • Wanderlust _Trekeffect March 14, 2016 at 9:34 am

      Bella why do you allow comments like this? People should not feel comfortable spewing this much bile, that’s why Bella naija is losing valid members because no reasonable person wants to deal with the rigors of life only to come and interact with obviously dense embittered souls on here.
      Pls do the needful
      As for the commenter I have no words to waste on you.

      • Biker Chic March 14, 2016 at 11:58 am

        Which one is valid members? You guys complaining about the “new” BN should get over urselves. You are taking urselves too seriously. It is a blog, a free platform for crying out loud. If you are too old for something you move on. If you no longer like it here move on. You are not a share holder. Stop whinning. Some of us find this attitude irritating

      • Wanderlust _Trekeffect March 14, 2016 at 1:07 pm

        Did I use the word” old or new”? Learn to comprehend what you read, by valid I refer to commenters old or new who are able to express their opinions, positive or negative without bullying or projecting their sad lives on others, you seem to be one of those. That way people can be enlightened when they come here,there is freedom of speech but there should also be caution in how we exercise it.
        Tell the devil I ain’t home

      • swagg1 March 15, 2016 at 12:22 am

        Its called freedom of speech, so deal with it.

  • Love March 14, 2016 at 6:33 am

    There’s so much hate in the world mehn – just be happy for them and move on . Uncle bill was clearly a joke – you can’t progress hating people ?

  • Lase March 14, 2016 at 8:49 am

    Bill gates meets with people everday. No big deal! He met with El- Rufai and Dangote during his visit to Nigeria. Hes met Dangote and other State Governors a million times! There was no big noise about it.
    Why is there noise about this?????? Is there something am missing?

    • Jezebel March 15, 2016 at 12:13 pm

      @ Lase it’s interesting when Bill Gates met Dangote his kids did not make a big deal about it. Insert money class quote here.

  • idomagirl March 14, 2016 at 8:55 am

    But Nigerians generally call older people “uncle” or “aunty”, so what’s the big deal about her saying “Uncle Bill”?

  • ajikoko March 14, 2016 at 9:00 am

    You guys should come off it jooor!….They are one of the richest people in Nigeria…..And if they call him uncle -So What!…..Instead of you to pray to be rich- you go they yap them…..The Otedola Man done try- Pls what the name of ur father……is name is on forbes list……abeg! Wetin be ur baba name make I check…..yeye dey smell

  • ajikoko March 14, 2016 at 9:02 am

    And pls don’t tell them how to spend their money- when you become rich,you could open a charity if you wish.

  • Josephine March 14, 2016 at 9:32 am

    “You just might be a black Bill Gates in the making. I just might be a black Bill Gates in the making” *in Beyonce’s voice.

  • Iphee March 14, 2016 at 10:31 am

  • Ope March 14, 2016 at 7:33 pm

    You guys should check Hebrews 13:1 and 1 john 2:11. God help us all

  • Naveah March 15, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    I’m glad you are friends with Bill Gates, Mr. Femi Otedola. This is my question though, are you following Mr. Gate’s example of selfless giving and provision for the less fortunate all over AFRICA, the United States and other places around the world? Very nice photo opportunity for you and your family but I would be more impressed if you were joining forces with him to bring about tangible change in your country. You’ve worked hard for your wealth but to whom much is given, much is expected but I don’t think this is a creed most wealthy Nigerians hold true.
    And before any of you come for me, I don’t have money to give but I do give of my time volunteering.

  • Geiez March 16, 2016 at 6:50 am

    NOW!! I see my ROLE MODELS!!! I’m on my way SIR’s
