Kiki Osinbajo, the daughter of Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has reacted to an allegation made by Jackson Ude, a US-based blogger that she owns the property in Wuse, Abuja where her fashion business operates from.

Jackson Ude, who was also Former aide of President Goodluck Jonathan, took to Twitter Friday morning to allege that Kiki invested N800 million in the property she uses in running her business.

Kiki, in an Instagram post, however, described the allegation as a lie, stating she is a tenant in the property where she runs her business.

”For me it is completely UNBELIEVABLE that a grown man will sit in his home and LIE about me. A grown man who possibly has children my age!” Kiki wrote on her Instagram page to dismiss the allegation.

She added; “Like many young women in Nigeria I work hard. It may be difficult for people like him to understand that a young woman can work hard and succeed on her own steam. ANYONE can verify the ownership of the property of Glam’d Africa at Agis in Abuja. I am a tenant in that property. My landlord’s name is Mr MUSA ADAMS.”

Kiki, founder of Glam’d Africa Beauty House, in September 2017 opened its doors to fabulous socialites and beauty enthusiasts for the launch of her flagship store at the property located on 40 Durban Street, Wuse 2, Abuja.

The crème de la crème in attendance at the launch including Kiki’s parents Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and his wife Dolapo Osinbajo.

The young beauty entrepreneur envisions Glam’d Africa to create a co-working space that will serve as a hub for beauty businesses; makeup artists, beauty brands, clothing brands, accessories nail artists, and others.
