Lagos man-about-town, Gbenga Islander is currently lapping the euphoria of his recent financial fortunes that has since become the talk of town.
Gbenga Islander, born Gbenga Akinbobola, was said to have pulled through the deal, purported to be his all time high, alongside few of his friends.
According to sources, the said deal had involved high-powered transfer of funds through an unnamed international financial institution and yielded several millions of dollars in shared profit to Gbenga.
Although, this is not the first of such dealings he had successfully netted, the sheer volume of cash presently at his disposal has apparently upped his notch within social circles and among friends in Lagos and Europe.
Contrary to insinuation that the big spender is a member of an elite drug cartel, yemojanews.com was reliably informed that he is actually involved in hidden deals involving huge monetary wires, known in local parlance as ‘discounting’.
Moreover, Gbenga Islander, who lives in Spain and Nigeria, was alleged to have recently parted with a whopping N70 million as a year hotel accommodation at the prestigious Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel on Victoria Island.
yemojanews.com gathered from the streets that despite the fact that Gbenga Islander resides at the former middle-class estate –Alaka Estate in Surulere, and currently said to be building a multi-million naira hotel in Ikeja, the Lagos State capital, splashing ‘merely’ N70 million on hotel lodging was as inconsequential as a bird’s farthing to him.
Gbenga Islander has also had a good share of society big girls, but at present nestled in the warm affection of a young undergraduate whose mother resides in Fadeyi/Palmgrove axis of Lagos Mainlaind.

Gbenga is a reveler and a notable face in many high-profile society shindigs, particularly at parties where Kwam I is on the band stand. He is known never to brook any restriction in spraying naira notes and foreign currencies at Kwam I’s shows.
Before his sudden rise to inexplicable wealth Gbenga Islander grew up in Mushin, Lagos. Just in recent past, he worked as a bartender and room cleaner at the Highlander Hotel, Mushin.
A source who claimed to know attributed Gbenga‘s success to the magnanimity of a certain Otunba Felix, who didn’t only introduced him to deals, but ensured he got his fair share in a game where an over-the-shoulder glance could be a costly mistake.
