Before he stumbled into acting, Kolade was involved in Security business such as CCTV, Burglary Alarm, Fire Alarm, Thunder Arrestor and many more.
According to him, “I want to say to God be the glory for the success of the house. From a room self-contain to my own house, I started building in 2012/2013 and I moved in early this year. I believe it is just a stepping stone. The building started the normal way; I got the land I started developing it. My then landlord influenced me because he gave me quit notice, I was unable to pay him my new house rent because I planned to use the money in getting land and build even if it is a room I could start with but the marvelous God surprised me with unexpected contracts that started coming in for me from nowhere.
On how I got the money, like I said earlier, I am into security device installation and distribution; it’s a very profitable business if you get good connections. I also made little from my film productions. A lot of people talk about my hotel; I believe it is my friends who we have been together that alerted the world about it. Yes I have a hotel but it is yet to be completed to my taste. It is located in Ogun State”, he explained.
Now you know how he made his money.
