The internet has been buzzling with a report exclusively pubshlied by YES magazine about a former Lagos socialite and ace publisher, Chief Goddy Anabor (of the defunct Hearts Magazine). The report says the erstwhile billionaire popular for spending heavily for musicians like Sir Shina Peters, Oliver de Coque and so many other musicians now engages in the business to keep body and soul together, and after falling on bad times.
A number of his close pals said they were shocked by the way things are turning out for him. They blamed bad marriage and drugs for his down fall. A native of Fugar in Edo State, Anabor, when the going was good, was residing inside Moshood Abiola Crescent, off Toyin Street, in Ikeja, Lagos. He also had a guest house in Ikeja GRA (on Joel Ogunnaike to be specific). As a matter of fact, the guest house today houses a nude club – The Cave, owned by Shina Edo. He sold them all at the peak of his crisis. Likewise his gigantic hotel in Edo State and all his exotic automobiles, including a Rolls Royce.
Currently a regular face at a popular bar on Allen Avenue, the businessman who used to have a white man that worked for him as his Personal Assistant drinks 33 Larger Beer whenever he comes around. Unlike in the days of old when it was some of the most expensive drinks. A shadow of his old self, he practically begs now and depends on his Kabukabu to survive.
