On Thursday, 8th January, 2015, the Shonibare family honours their late patriarch, Samuel Olatunbosun Shonibare as they launch his biography, Legend of All Time.
Samuel Olatunbosun Shonibare who died at age 44 in 1964 was a businessman, politician, journalist and founding member of the Action Group alongside Chief Obafemi Awolowo. The biography was written by Toni Kan and Peju Akande and chronicles the life of the business mogul who achieved so much in the time he was alive and left behind a lasting legacy.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, his daughter Chief Taiwo Taiwo said the reason the book had to be written “was to tell the story of S. O Shonibare correctly.”
The book which she refers to as well researched, showed her sides to her father she never knew before especially his philanthropy and generousity.
The launch will take place at the Metropolitan Club, Ozumba Mbadiwe Road, Victoria Island, Lagos at 11 am.
