On Peter Obi’s Son

LAGOS MAY 23RD (NEWSRANGERS)-After the faux outrage that Obi’s comment about not buying a car for his son about 30 years of age because he believes that he should work to get one for himself, generated, I decided to do a little background check on his son. Below is what I’ve been able to come up with. My candid opinion on the matter is offered as a postscript at the footer.

Oseloka Obi is Peter Obi’s only son and a graduate of Philosophy from Bristol University, UK.

He is a Hollywood actor and a member of the Actors Guild of Great Britain UK and goes by the stage name ELOKA IVO.

He’s done a lot of stage plays and recitations, most notably teaming up with Dame Harriet Walter and Gemma Whelan to perform a reading of Timberlake Wertenbaker’s ‘The Third’ at London Burough of Islington in the UK.

His major casts include the movie, “His Assistant” and a sci-fi series “Avenue 5”.

He’s also done voice over for several Ebooks on Amazon.

Oseloka has worked in various firms which includes Assistant Production Manager at AFRIFF, Lagos and Business Developer at Kombini, London, UK.

In 2018 Oseloka Co-founded TBA which is a Movie Theatre Company in Bristol City, UK.

PS: It’s so refreshing to see a Nigerian politician who does not believe that his status as a public office holder is what his son should run with to access privileged positions. I’m genuinely surprised by the number of people who expect Peter Obi to buy his grown up son a car when he’s actually set him on a pedestal to global fame and fortunes, having given him the most important virtues of Good education and values. What is a car in comparison to that?

Obi’s style of leadership pales greatly to what obtains amongst Black Africans: the wanton obsessing for materialism and the worship of same. This understandably irks the living daylight out of many who cannot understand how a Billionaire’s daughter is rather a public school teacher in Lagos as opposed to being a top Executive in NNPC like her peers, and his son having to hustle for his own car.

Coming from a people used to seeing the children of top politicians flying private jets and power bikes of over 40m naira while having no known source of income, I really really do understand. Obi is not your regular Nigerian, and it’s so refreshing to see.
