Popular businessman and socialite, Shaka Momoh is dead.
The proprietor of Planet One Hospitality Company Limited reportedly died on Thursday from COVID-19 complications at Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH).
A lifestyle enthusiast, Momoh left an imprint in the lifestyle and entertainment sector of the economy with Planet One in Maryland, Lagos, which was at one time the rave in entertainment and lifestyle circles.
Unfortunately the swanky hotel which once hosted rappers, Missy Elliot and The Game in its hey days, suffered a huge debt profile that took the shine off it.
Momoh’s other commercial interests weren’t quite as popular as Planet One.
They include Hospitality Warehouse – a hospitality products wholesale company; Baobab Edge Limited – a lifestyle company; Basic Information and Communications System Limited (BICS) – a technology and ICT solutions company offering e-Government Solution, CRM, HRM, Outsourcing and Education & Training Solutions in Nigeria. BICS boast of international partnership with AYA Technologies AG (Switzerland), CustomerSoft (USA), Knovada (USA) and NIIT (India) to provide such global solutions with local address.
A graduate of business administration from Auchi Polytechnic, Momoh was a philanthropist who dispensed his goodwill via his Baobab Foundation.
