Dele Momodu needs no introduction.
This man has been PR’ing before PR was about hashtags and tweet-storms. From his days as a writer with M.K.O Abiola’s Concord newspapers, to establishing his first PR firm, Celebrities-Goodwill Limited that handled the accounts of the likes of Mike Adenuga and M.K.O Abiola, Momodu was the one power brokers went to for their public relations needs.
Uncle Dele has been on all the corridors your favourite corridor wants to be like…
With his Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu was BellaNaija’ing before there was BellaNaija Weddings. Uncle Dele is the Soni Irabor of print.
Lets not even begin to talk about his activism.
But on these Internet streets, Dele Momodu has another great reputation; He is the Greatest “I have a photo with every important person” Of All Time.
He has a photo with everyone.
On every side.
That is why we are in SHOCK (notice how the caps can tell we’re having a panic attack?) that our own uncle Dele ‘The Greatest’ Momodu does not have a photo with Muhammad ‘The Greatest’ Ali.
We have been stalking his Instagram since Muhammad Ali passed away.
He has put up a photo of Muhammad Ali in Ghana, Muhammad Ali in Ibadan, Muhammad Ali with Alfred Rewane, but no Muhammad Ali with Dele Momodu.
Like, Uncle Dele shakes hands with America’s most famous bad boy, George Bush as if they went to Obafemi Awolowo University together.
He stumbles on Bill Clinton as easily as you stumble on a police checkpoint.
But you see, we love Uncle Dele very much and his ever ready, ever agile, and ever vigilant photographer, and we believe he deserves one.
So we took the kind gesture, in good faith and in solidarity to make one for him.
It might not be perfect.
But it is in good will. Amen?
