Nana Otedola is a Nigerian entrepreneur and philanthropist popularly known as the wife of Femi Otedola, the famous Nigerian billionaire.
Being the wife of a prominent business tycoon, Nana Otedola is often overshadowed by her husband’s achievements. However, she has successfully established herself to such an extent that she proudly stands as one of Nigeria’s classy businesswomen with numerous ventures in and outside the country.
Who is Nana Otedola?
Nana is a popular Ghanaian name, but Nana Otedola is not a Ghanaian as many assumed her to be. Nana Otedola is a Nigerian born in the United Kingdom. As a matter of fact, Nana Otedola grew to know the United Kingdom as her home. Although details of her parents and siblings are not known, it is common knowledge that she grew up in a family of affluence and had all her education in the UK.
Nana Is a Successful Businesswoman
Nana Otedola is a philanthropist and entrepreneur. Being the wife of a billionaire, she certainly does not lack funds or capital for her businesses. She is the managing director of her own cleaning business named “Garment Care.” Her cleaning company offers its services to customers of large entities like hotels and companies. Garment Care earns Nana Otedola hundred-thousands of dollars on an annual basis.
Suppose there’s one thing other women can imitate about Nana Otedola. In that case, it should be her zeal to work hard and make her own money, even though she is married to one of the wealthiest men on the continent of Africa.
While details of Nana’s educational accomplishment remain a mystery, it is said that this very industrious woman worked in a United Kingdom energy company called “Fineshade Energy Limited. She was committed to the company for approximately 13 years and rose to the position of director before her retirement.
Nana’s business accomplishments have made her an influential female figure in society. With a net worth of $15million, even though it is nothing compared to her husband’s $5.7billion net worth, Nana Otedola is proud she makes her own money and isn’t solely dependent on her wealthy husband.
How Long Has Nana and Femi Otedola Been Married?
Even as the wife of a first-class citizen of Nigeria, Nana Otedola has still managed to live a life under the media’s radar, letting out little or no information about herself or her private life.

However, following the birth of their first child in 1992, we could easily conclude that Nana and her husband Femi have been together as a couple for over thirty years. Before Femi Otedola got married to Nana, he was with a lady named Olayinka Odukoya.
