Who owns Baba Ijebu?
Baba Ijebu was founded by gaming magnate Sir Kesington Adebukunola Adebutu CON, KJW, FISM. Adebutu was born on October 24, 1935 in Iperu Remo, Ikenne township of Ogun state. He received his elementary education in Ikenne at Wesley Primary School till Primary 4 before later moving to Ijero Baptist School in Ebute-Metta, Lagos where he completed his education. He thereafter proceeded to the Baptist Academy, Lagos for his secondary education in January 1954.
Adebutu was offered a scholarship to be trained as a teacher at Iwo Baptist College, but he turned down the offer and instead started work at Cable and Wireless Ltd, which later became NITEL. Thereafter, he worked as a sales manager and then as a regional overseer at Claffin Chemical Ltd.
The business magnate did not stay too long at the pharmaceutical company. An entrepreneur at heart, he itched to start his own enterprise. However, because he did not have enough capital to start a big enterprise, he decided to start a pool business, Face-to-Face Million Dollar Pools Limited.
From a small shop at Idi-Oro in Lagos, Baba Ijebu has grown into a mega-franchise, Nigeria’s most trusted bookmaker, boasting of 200 principal agents overseeing 16,000 retail gaming representatives sprawled across South-western Nigeria. Baba Ijebu has a management team that has a vast wealth of experience in the gaming industry spanning over 40 years combined. Adebutu’s children now hold different administrative roles in the company, but he himself still serves on the board as the current CEO of the company.
