‘It’s the Lord’s doing’
Gorgeous thespian, Alhaja Lizzy (Aisha) Anjorin, better addressed as Kofo The First Lady, has confirmed moving into new Lekki, Lagos home. She added that it’s the Lord’s doing.
Speaking excitedly with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Saturday, June 14, 2014, the Badagry, Lagos born actress cum film maker expressed gratitude and appreciation to Almighty Allah for blessing her career. She further attributed her success to doggedness and focus. She was, however, silent on the tale that the new abode was acquired.
“It’s not a rumour that I have moved out of my Obawole, Ifako-Ijaiye, Lagos residence. I moved out a week before the premiere of my movie, Kofo The First Lady. I now live in the heart of Lekki Phase 1. The structure itself is wonderful. It’s tastefully furnished. It’s worth its value. It’s a comfortable place to be. I give thanks to Almighty Allah for being there for me all the time.
“Everything I have achieved so far was as a result of hard work and being focused, coupled with the fact that God has seen me as an orphan and has been blessing everything I laid my hands on.
“I also realized that since I returned from Mecca, Saudi Arabia, in 2013, I have been swimming in fortunes and that will never stop, Insha Allah.
“There is no man behind my fortune, I keep saying it. It’s God that owns the glory. Whenever He says yes, nobody can say no.”
Asked to clear the air whether the new edifice was acquired or rented, she reacted, “That I can’t disclose to you, sir. What’s important is that I have moved into a new house. Whether it’s acquired or rented is of no relevance. So far I am comfortable and fulfilled. Very soon, I will invite you so that you can see things yourself. I don’t want to sound arrogant.”
Meanwhile, an industry source disclosed to ENCOMIUM Weekly that Anjorin’s new apartment is a penthouse and was acquired through a mortgage.
According to the source, the talented role interpreter is expected to cough out N60 million in five years to become the owner of the masterpiece.
“Nobody can say whether the Lekki house that Lizzy Anjorin just relocated to belongs to her because she has just paid some amount out of the N60 million she is supposed to pay to own the property. I learnt she moved in shortly before she premiered her movie, Kofo The First Lady. She has just only five years to pay up, but if she couldn’t continue, she may give it up to another person. But as of now, she can be said to be in the league of celebrities that own property in Lekki, and she is so excited about it.”
