His personal life 

Nola is the sort who believes in hard effort rather than luck, as he has worked his entire life while being only 31 years old, with Veritasi being his eighth company. According to Nola, 

‘’If I stop working now, I would still be fine, even for the next 70 years, because I have been working for the past 15 years, it has become a part of me to work. If peradventure I stop working, I would just need to liquidate some of my assets and move to England and I would be very fine’’.

He is a highly motivated and imaginative entrepreneur with a positive attitude and extensive experience in redefining success in the Nigerian business world. His goal is to raise 200 successful African entrepreneurs by 2025, who would then create jobs.

‘’If I stop working now, I would still be fine, even for the next 70 years, because I have been working for the past 15 years, it has become a part of me to work. If peradventure I stop working, I would just need to liquidate some of my assets and move to England and I would be very fine’’.

When asked when he plans to marry, Nola says he is more interested in having a child than in having a wife.

‘’I want to have a baby more than I want to get married. I missed the person I was supposed to get married to because I was solely focused on making money so I missed her. I have a girlfriend, she is not in Nigeria, she is in the UK and she is a banker over there. I really would love to get married one day, at the moment I have two adopted kids, you wouldn’t know they are not mine’’.
