Sir Kessington Adebutu 


If what we have heard is truly anything to go by, then the King of Lotto in Nigeria, known to most as Baba Ijebu, Sir Kessington Adebutu is surely one generous man whose type might be hard to find again in this our clime. That the man is probably a billionaire is not in doubt, what the people might not really know about is how deep, a deep pocket the great man of Ijebu extraction is.

According to the gist, the super liquid man, who must have contributed a cast amount of money, which couldn’t have been less than N500 million towards the failed Gubernatorial ambition of his son, Hon. Ladi Adebutu in Ogun State didn’t just keep the largesse in house, but also embraced the ambition of both Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu and that of Prince Dapo Abiodun.

According to the unconfirmed gist, Sir Kessington Adebutu, who is said to have spent between N200m to N300m to host his daughter-Temitope’s superlative wedding a while ago, contributed not less than N600M, towards the ambitions of the new Governor-Elects. If that staggering amount is not massive, then we don’t know nothing then. The truth is, what is N600 Million not including how much he must have contributed towards his own blood son’s ambition, to a man who once confessed to have lost over 1 billion Naira in a single game in one day!

The renowned octogenarian, he would be 84 come October of 2019 as he was born in October of 1935 is probably one of the most generous Nigerians alive. He is the “king of Lotto” business having been at it now for several decades, it is in fact the business that made him colossally wealthy. He rose from a very humble beginning from his homestead in Iperu-Remo, in Ikenne LGA of Ogun State. He attended Wesley School in Iperu, before coming to Lagos to attend the famous Baptist Academy, Lagos, he went back to Ogun State, Sagamu to be more precise to finish his Secondary School education. After that he began work as a Sales Person and rose to become a Sales Manager, from then he began to think of what to do for himself after stumbling on a book where he read that having a business of his one was the way forward. But without capital, the future looked uncertain but grace worked for him and from that beginning to where he is today.

To really understand how well to do Sir Adebutu is, then you look at how wealthy some of his kids l, likes of Segun Adebutu is. Years back to celebrate his birthday then, the young moneybag flew his family and friends in good number, all expenses paid, nothing spared to have a colossal party and time. That party was a talk of the time at that time.

We hear that all Papa’s kids no matter how already made they are, still collect a very generous monthly allowance from their very loving dad. What a way to go. The gentleman of means dotes so much on all his kids and wouldn’t allow them make a misstep that could be costly, evidence of that was shown in how he became a guardian angel for Ladi Adebutu who had gambled on the wrong side during the Ogun State Gubernatorial Election 2019, who when he had failed to dislodge Buruji Kashamu to get his party’s flag to contest, decided to disrupt the apple cart any way he could, when he placed all his bets on Senator Ibikunle Amosun’s candidate, Hon. Adekunle Akinlade, who later lost the election to the now Governor Elect, Prince Adedapo Abiodun, the multimillionaire owner & CEO of Heyden Oil. It was Sir Kessington Adebutu, that engineered the peace move between his son, Ladi and Prince Abiodun, making the 2 men to bury the hatchet or whatever they had between them.
