From his collections: Tales from the Savannah 6

In the bustling metropolis of Lagos, there lived a man named James Okoro. At 49 years old, James was the founder and CEO of an expansive conglomerate with offices in Nigeria, Ghana, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Benin Republic, Kenya, and even as far as Canada and the Central African Republic. Known for his immense wealth, James was even more famous for his unparalleled generosity. He was the kind of man whose presence could light up a room, and his giving spirit made him beloved by all who knew him.

James’s life was a testament to hard work and philanthropy. His heart ached at the sight of sadness, and he would go to great lengths to ensure that those around him were happy and taken care of. Many joked that he was bewitched by the spirit of giving, but it was simply his nature. He was the ideal brother, mentor, husband, friend, and brother-in-law.

Despite his success, life threw a cruel twist his way. An unexpected financial crisis caused James to lose 99% of his wealth. The once-thriving empire crumbled, and with it went the loyalty of many. His Chief Marketing Officer, his Chief Operating Officer, and even his own wife left him, taking their five children. James found himself alone, facing the ruins of what he had built with his blood, sweat, and tears.

Yet, in the depths of his despair, one person remained steadfast by his side. Véronique, his secretary, had joined the company as a bright-eyed 23-year-old graduate. Now 35, she stood by James, her unwavering loyalty a beacon of hope. She refused to abandon the man who had given her a chance when she was fresh out of university.

With Véronique’s help, James embarked on a journey to rebuild his empire. Her dedication and intelligence were instrumental as they worked tirelessly, day and night, to restore what was lost. In just two years, through sheer determination and strategic brilliance, James managed to rebound and rebuild his company to its former glory.

In recognition of her unwavering support and invaluable contributions, James promoted Véronique to the rank of co-founder. He also ensured that she was rewarded handsomely for her loyalty. He bought her a beautiful house and a car and even built a home for her parents. When Véronique married her longtime fiancé, Franky, James, footed the bill for the entire wedding, ensuring it was an event to remember.

At the lavish wedding reception, James stood tall, a proud smile on his face as he watched Véronique and Franky bask in their happiness. As a final grand gesture, he gifted the newlyweds a stunning five-bedroom duplex in the prestigious neighborhood of Ikoyi. The room erupted in applause and cheers, but James wasn’t done yet.

He took Franky aside and whispered into his left ear, “Franky, if you disturb Véronique, I will deal with you.” Both men laughed heartily, knowing the bond they shared and the deep respect they had for each other.

James Okoro, the man who lost almost everything, had regained not just his wealth but the respect and love of those who truly mattered. His story was one of resilience, loyalty, and the incredible power of generosity.
