As Nigeria’s industrial revolution gradually gets back its mojo, one man who is fast becoming a top player but remains ever unobtrusive and quiet in his giant strides is Don Ebubeogu. The unassuming seasoned industrialist is rooted in the Nigeria, particularly, Lagos and Onitsha industrial and business communities where he superintends a flourishing food and beverage conglomerate, Tiger foods Nigeria Limited.
The president of Onitsha Chamber of Commerce, industry, Mines and Agriculture (ONICCIMA), relishes creating wealth as well as good life. Unlike many of his business mogul colleagues, Ebubeogu is not a car freak, but has been blessed enough to be able to afford any of the top brands like Rolls Royee, Mercedes, Ford and Jaguar if he desires to have any. A visit to any of his modest mansions both in Lagos and Anambra will attest to his taste with nice modest pricey autos. As much as Ebubeogu doesn’t lust after those lascivious cars, those close to him say if he decides to change his mind on picking any of those classic authors made for ‘modus men’ , the foremost industrialist will definitely settle for Mercedes Maybach, which name has been synonymous with luxury.
With the average cost of Maybach Sadan going for about $500,000 per piece, auto pundits have described Maybach as one of the best cars ever made by man and the fact that it is ‘Made In Germany’ has elevated the brand into a deity among celebrities. But in spite of his status, Ebubeogu is not cut out to throwing away hundreds of dollars to acquire such luxury piece of wheel. Rather, the amiable dude is ever thinking of expanding his business frontiers to get many Nigerian engaged and off below the poverty line.
