I don't really think so. At least that's not how I saw it.

No matter if many wealthy Nigerian women ladies got their money off their back(which happens everywhere btw) doesn't mean that's how every rich Nigerian woman obtained her wealth.
 
I  made an accurate generalization about Nigerian society, not this woman in particular.  I also never said "ever rich Nigerian woman obtained her wealth" through a man. 
 
I don't understand why you are defending this woman against my statements when I never attacked her.  I simply said that many woman of her caliber in Nigeria made their money through a man they had a romantic relationship with. 
 
Oh and dating a baller does not compare to this.  Ballers do not GIVE women oil blocks.  Their wifes get alimony and child support if they are lucky.  Its not the same thing.  I'm talking about giving women lucrative contracts and business opportunities that they and their future generations can live off of.  Once again, you are so intent on defending this woman that you are missing the point of my statements.
 
Last, this AA/African/Caribbean thing is getting really old.  Lets please get over it BHM.  You all black.

Epitome made a statement i'm sure in jest that this lady made her wealth on her back and knees. You came and responded yeah most likely. I do not know how to quote posts you can find your statements on pg 2 or 3. You may not have meant to discredit this particular woman but that is exactly what you said.

I am not missing your point, I know what happens in Nigeria, but that has nothing to do with this PARTICULAR woman.

Never said dating a baller was on the level of receiving an oil block. I was defending my statement that just cause it happens alot doesn't mean that's how this lady made her money. I just so happened to use ballers and their girlfriends as an example because of the genralizations made about them. Don't see how you misunderstood that.
And as far as me defending this lady, I don't know maybe I want to marry her sons so I am defending my future mother in laws honor.

Shrugs...

It has everything to do with this woman because she is Nigerian.  A former president who is worth billions of dollars gave a woman a financial opportunity that has in turn made her a billionaire even though they are not married or related.  The article offers no explanation as to why and yet your are insinuating that I'm reaching when I say there is a chance that he did this because they had a romantic relationship.
 
Just like you claim I am assuming this woman did not earn her money, you are assuming she did.  You have no idea if what I've posted about the dynamics of wealthy Nigerian men and women pertains to this woman or not.  I also, have never said that I know for a fact that what I discussed is directly related to her.
 
At least I acknowledge I don't know it all...

Yes, I just googled for you. 
 
Funny enough.  The first result's first paragraph mentions Babangida giving oil blocks to his mistresses fraudlently. LOL

There is a CNN segment on this lady it is on youtube. So unlike you I am not going by this article solely. They do exposes on people making a difference. I doubt CNN would choose someone doing work fraudulently. At first you said you were making a generalization but it is clear you are speaking about this woman specifically.
I am not pretending to know it all, I just refuse to go with a negative explanation for her wealth since neither of us know her personally or how she truly made her wealth. That is the difference.

Up Ms. Alakija keep growing your wealth and making a difference in your community!
