You invested when you are young to established a company that millions of people till today feeds from. God will forgive you of your past and grant you paradise


A man with a heart of gold is gone. An angel in human form has finally left us. A philanthropist who impacted many lives has gone. The father to the fatherless is no more. You created jobs for millions of Nigerian youths and the world in general. Thanks for what you did for humanity and May God continue to rest your soul. Amen.


May the Almighty God forgive the departed soul, grant him a befitting place in the best paradise, give the immediate family members and FCMB family the fortitude to withstand the loss. We love you but God love you most and wo are we, to question the Almighty. Please rest on Baba. Odigbere, odi arina ko otun doju ala.

Otunba Olasubomi Balogun spent a great deal of his life on earth impacting and investing in the lives of other people. He knew he had a gift and didn’t hoard it but like a grain of wheat, he sowed it in the lives of others. We are all witnesses to just how much fruit this noble investment has yielded. Rest in peace great man.

Otunba Olasubomi Balogun was like a father to all of us at FCMB. His visionary leadership, philantropy and unreserved care for employees was unassailable. We will miss the fatherly role he played to us. While we mourn his demise, we are consoled by the fact that he lived a life worthy of emulation. Memories of Otunba will remain indelible in our hearts. May the Almighty God grant him eternal rest as we pray for the repose of his soul.

You were a great man. When I was about to join FCMB in 2022, I took out time to read about you - the founder and honestly I was in awe of your managerial skills, legacy and how the family has successfully taken up same line of leadership skills and responsibility from you sir. Indeed you have lived a good life. I pray that your creator sees you in this light as well. May your legacy continue even after you have gone to rest. May God comfort the entire family and staff of FCMB. Amen.
