“I Had an Idea, I Didn’t Have a Laptop” Young Nigerian Billionaire Ladi Delano Speaks to Forbes Africa in its September 2013 Edition



Ladi Delano ForbesThe last time we ran a story on Nigerian entrepreneur Ladi Delano on BellaNaija a lot of our female readers were quite curious about his eligibility for marriage. {See link here}. Fortunately, there’s so much more about Ladi that is beyond they mystique of his marital status. He is a go-getter and a business man who sees opportunities and goes for the jugular.

In the September 2013 edition of Forbes Africa, business and financial journalist, Abi Owolawi runs an extensive feature on Ladi Delano’s business acumen. The piece gives insight into Ladi’s background and how he worked his way to the top.

Here’s an excerpt from the report:

The path may have been well lit, but hardship lurked around the corner. In his student days, Delano found he suffered from mild dyslexia and deafness in one ear. Learning became more and more difficult and the idea of school waned. Despite this, with the help of extra lessons, Delano made it to a top university on a day he describes as glorious. The novelty soon wore off and academia became Delano’s nemesis. In his second year of a political science degree, he made up his mind. “It became quite clear that I didn’t have a passion for my course. I think that lead to me being easily distracted and that, ultimately, culminated in me thinking that rather than flogging a dead horse, it would make more sense to do something I was more comfortable with. There are two types of education and each form of education is equally as valuable. The academic approach to education is vital, no business can operate and be successful without those who have spent the time to understand the academic side of anything. However, that approach to education is not necessarily for everybody. And in my case it wasn’t. So, I decided to withdraw from university,” he says. Delano’s decision didn’t go down well at home, but there was no stopping him. At least university had planted the idea of becoming an entrepreneur.

In April 2012, Delano moved back to Nigeria—a country with 60% of the population under the age of 35 and a youth unemployment rate sitting at 43%. “I just love Nigeria… I want to provide jobs and help the youth develop themselves. It’s an honor to be able to contribute to the economy in this way,” he says. The first contribution will be made through a mining asset acquired in May. “We now have $100 million to spend on the asset in order to get it to production. We anticipate that the asset will be in production within the next year or so and we’re hoping that this will kickstart the mining revolution in Nigeria,” he says. “We recently advised Ladi on completing his first mining deal where he energetically drove the process and discussions with multiple stakeholders through to a successful outcome. Ladi is already focused on several opportunities and we see him doing very exciting things going forward,” says Raj Khatri, head of metals and mining for Macquarie Capital, Europe. From London, to Chicago, to China and West Africa; through vodka, mining and hotels; it has been a roller coaster ride for Ladi Delano in his first 31 years and you get the feeling he has only just got started.

    I remember reading about all the natural resources we had in Nigeria while in primary and secondary school (not just crude oil), and I’ve been asking myself for the past year, “What happened to them? Coal, Iron Ore, Tin, etc.”

    Great job! And he’s cute too! (I just had to throw that in there)

    BTW, I have a feeling this guy is married. He is 31 years old and seems more like the serious minded type.

    No time wasting abi, gazillion of yall single hopefuls beat me to it with my question. BELLA NAIJA u too u should know the score by now, clearly 80% of your readers are single so please dont always wait till we ask that question “Is he Single”. You always know that question is coming like an avalanche so abeg just tell it already.

  15. chioma

    September 19, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    I suggest he goes under a poor disguise for a year or so to find a woman who truly loves him for him otherwise it is going to be extremely tough. Gold digging women is like a movement these days and especially in a nation like Nigeria. KGB, CIA, FBI dont got nothing on these women. If the US government had assignef these women to go find Osama Bin Laden, they coulda done so and easily in 30 days. We didn’t have to wait as long as we did. These women are fierce. 🙂

    I love it when i see young Nigerians rise to the top out of their handwork, NOT 419. There’s nothing like working hard and be focused as a man, no matter how tough the road might seem like, with the help of God someday it will surely pay off trust me.

  21. Kenny

    September 19, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    There’s a lot of Nigerians who wants to come back home an invest, but the biggest concern we all face is the issue of security, lack of rule of law and accountability. If BN can tell us how this issue is been dealt with, that might encourage a lot of us. I know the government failed us all, security is the responsibility of the government, that is the least they can guarantee us. Everyday, i think about millions of Nigerians who are abroad like me, who wants to come back home and invest. If the Nigerian government do what they are suppose to do, trust me the unemployment issue, in Nigeria will drop tremendously, unfortunately, the Nigerian government is naive they only rely, in stealing the countries wealth and come abroad with their wives and families to shop and buy houses bc we lack accountability and the rule of law.

    I am going to reveal my secret to you guys (am revealing only a FEW for now – see how it goes). Places to find eligible men is not only church. Definitely not a CLUB (absolute no no). If you live in abroad Try these places (I dont live in Nigeria so i dont know for there)
    -Home Depot (DIY store) – always look clueless and lost in that aisle he is on, he will ask if you need help.
    Law Libraries
    Architect Libraries
    Barnes and Noble
    Art Galleries
    Always Fly 1st class (You have to use fish to catch fish so save your money for ticket) and try and get in the VIP Lounge, as you sit and wait for your plane to take off, Economy will not do.
    My all time favourite is Conferences (specific conferences)

    Funny how no girl is asking how can I contribute to the success of his business, how can I get employed in a company with an owner that has a vision like this. Like working for Bill Gates or even Mark Zuckerberg. You girls are asking if he is single. Thief thief. You don’t want to contribute. You just want to take take. If your Papa get money sef, in a way you will contribute because money jam money = more money. Shaking my head. keep asking, because you think his type will be on BN dropping comments, or if you know his status your type will snag him. Mschew. I laugh in Spanish. Thank goodness for the anonymity of the internet. Your disgrace has no face. The guy and those that know him if they read this will just be laughing their heads off. Materialistic 9ja girls. Una no dey tire. Many inspirational young men doing business have featured on BN, no one asked if they were single. Even the nominees of Future Awards video posted 2 days ago, not up to 10 comments. Una see big fish, sharply you are asking if he is single. As for @Imustmarry2014. Keep stalking those places. Trust me, the men that go there can sniff out a barracuda faster than you can say Hello. They know those who belong there by virtue of upbringing, refinement and class and those who are husband hunting. You will do girlfriend so tey, they will dump you and marry one of their own.

    • Mz Socially Awkward...

      September 19, 2013 at 4:43 pm

      Bros abi Sis, no need to go there with your comments to @Imustmarry2014. You have no way of telling what kind of upbringing or refinement she has and anyway, why do you believe that whoever meets her, despite her methods, won’t be grateful that she sashayed into his own lonely life?

      I understand your annoyance with the “is he single” questions but I think they were harmless fun. Many women on this page are blazing wide trails in their own careers – like you said, the internet just reduces us to faceless anonymity…

    • Yeye dey smell

      September 19, 2013 at 4:55 pm

      Sorry you missed my point. I was not talking to her per se but to the people she is advising. If you belong there by virtue of upbringing, interests and bla bla bla, you don’t need to stalk those places because you already go there or can I say belong there, husband matter won’t suddenly take you there. If you go for the sole purpose of husband hunting they can sniff you out. You brought up the topic of her level of refinement, ubringing and co and not me. But as you have brought it up now, I kinda have to ask if she really belongs there abi why hasn’t she been going before but now she is husband hunting she is now stalking those places. You brought it up o and not me.

      As for your other comment. Oh really! Why don’t they ask these questions on other BN posts. Na big fish they are suddenly having harmless fun with. Oh please. Yeye dey smell. 9ja girls are very materialistic. At least someone like you now with your many sensible comments did not ask if he was single. Get my point?

      September 19, 2013 at 6:02 pm

      Dont Get it twisted honey, I have a Bsc in Engineering and an MBA and I own my own successful business so dont think i am some razz chick with no brains or no job who just want a rich guy to buy me some brazilian weave and a iphone – I am NOT the one!!!!!. #WRONG!!!!!!! If you fickle mind think the only girls that want a successful or smart business minded man is razz girls from poor homes or girls with no goals or money, you got it wrong. We successful women want successful men too and We will use our brains. The places i listed is just 10%, you think am stupid to list everything. Hell No!!

      (ps: We successful ones sometimes dont know if ppl love us for us, so we too sometimes we go under disguise too, whenyou see me sitting in the VIP lounge and start talking to me , I make you do all the talking and act clueless on most subjects, and show interest like tell me more, I am willing to learn. I dont know anything. I am also studying you sha. Everybody is vigilant these days. I worked hard to get to where I am, and equally I want not necessarily a RICH guy or Ready made, but a smart business minded dude who is a hard worker to match me – A guy with potential (Michelle Obama gave Potential a chance see where it got her). Above all Character is very important to me so i study character very well, i make you do most of the talking in the first few month or so. Let me tell you, dont get it twisted, I have attended many many NBMBAA conferences – before i graduated and after i graduated, and the biggest jerks i ever met were all Ivy League dudes who thought they were the cream of the crop so all girls should kiss up to them and their bad behaviour – so wearing your academic credentials on ones sleeves does not impress me – I dont wear mine on my sleeve. Entrepreneurial Guys Intelligent business minded guys is what is attractive to me, guys with great business ideas. See how this dude has turned his small business into a billion dollar company, he is smart business minded man, and if not him necessarily am sure he moves with colleagues who are just as smart. I will marry intelligence & smart over Ready Made Rich, any day, cos eventually Mr Intelligence & Smart becomes Rich in the long run, (and after hard work) and This gentleman just prooved it. For me Character & Potential is all i am looking for – being rich is a plus but not a neccesity. In that VIP lounge waiting for our plane to take off if your intellectual conversation tells me you are smart with excellent goals – we can definitely make it – i am very good at judgement of character. I listen very well when you speak. Bragging is a put off. Unassuming is attractive. They are many out there who have not necessarily made it on Fortune or have a feature on BN, those are the ones I am connecting with. Too much eyes dey for this one top.

      Well said. I like the fact that you’re equally established and smart at the same time; folks have a way of stereotyping… Thinking cos you want the finer things of life, that you are gold digging. I have standards that I don’t plan on compromising, but I’m wondering what happens to these razz chics at the end of the day? And I pity any unsuspecting intellectual man that falls prey to em

You are extremely judgemental when you dont even know me – or any of these women on here making comments – your whole commentary is Extremely Judgemental.

    so impressed…just got me thinking of a lot of kids in school who are challenged in one way or the other but get beaten or insulted for being olodos, ode, mumu and what not……i keep saying not everyone needs to go to university…….its because of a society like ours where so much emphasis is placed on paper qualifications that people don’t even get to discover what other talents they have…..if a child is not doing well at school, find out why then channel them where they can excel better……..thank God he was bold enough to stand up to his family and society, if not he would have ended up with a 3rd class or rustication and be branded failure for life……
    NB…..memo to all you oversabis, am not saying anyone who has a 3rd class has a problem oh, some ple no dey read…..its just that not every kid who does badly in academics is just not reading…..

Don’t be surprise in Ladi’s case a girl stood by him when the chips were down, when he dropped out of sch, wen he suffered fm dyslexia, deafness and all that. So why can’t we “naija girls” stand beside ou’s and make them great like Ladi? Rather than “reap where you never sow”. Am just saying tho. forgive my typing error

    Funny – when he was in Asia during 2013 he was looking to raise tiny amounts of money – doesn’t fit with this story – guess Forbes just needed something to write about?

    Beyonce releases an album; you’re all independent feminist seeking equal opportunity. You come on here and see a rich brother;you throw all that feminism out of the window, and you’re all a bunch of shameless, vile DESPERADOES! It’s disgraceful!

    Solid vodka went bust in 2008 and lost all money investors had put in. The market share was below 5% of premium segment. Solid lost around 3m usd they didn’t import more than 7000 bottles according to the 2009 iwsr report over the three years in operation
    Separately Delano Reid lost all investors money when they couldn’t come up with final payment for bund 22 building.
    Ladi then had to leave China but couldn’t go back to England as he faced law suits from the investors there as well.
    He tried to lease tankers in 2009 for oil storage but could not come with funds to do so.
    He then settled in jakarta and this is his latest scheme to lose / steal investors money.
    Go to China, a lot of people where burnt by this sales guy

    Read about what really happened to Ladis vodka.

    The restaurant and bar called Collection also went broke broke within 12 months of operating.

    See the managers comment about where Ladi gets his money from

    Shey the truth you want her to talk is a guy who is financially stable….in fact that is glossing over it, rich. And the way you are dancing around it reflects the mentality of many people towards a lady who desires financial comfort amongst other things in a relationship. It is low-key taboo and I don’t why. There’s nothing to be ashamed of for wanting a relationship with a rich man as long as he is not already committed to someone else and has earned his money legally. Yes, those trekking men are good men too. Yes they are hardworking but Lagos sun is too hot to be trekking under for an extended period of time. There are good poor men. Good average men. Good rich men, And God filthy rich men. If you can get the highest grade without compromising on your values or disobeying God, why freaking not?
