Known for his prominence in night-life business, Shina Adisa Peller, son of Africa’s notable magician, Late Professor Moshood Abiola Peller is set to honor his father’s memory in a grand style twenty years after the conjurer has passed on. SP, as he is fondly called, is the chairman of Aquila Group of Companies.
The Iseyin born Prof. Peller dominated the African magic world in his very short career, between the 1950’s and early 1990’s, was lost to the cold hands of death in 1997, at his Onipanu residence in Lagos.
The Aquila boss has made a place for himself in the business world and the social front. Located on Lagos Island, his swish night club Quilox is the Dubai-on-Nigerrian-soil for celebrities and uptown socialites to have fun.
Sp has decided to lavishly celebrate the memorial of his father in his Iseyin home town of Oyo state next month. In a build up to the grand remembrance soiree, the business mogul is currently constructing a palatial country mansion for his mother and completing his father’s uncompleted mansion in Iseyin, Oyo State.
A source close to the Quilox boss disclosed that, he is teaming up with the Oyo State Government, and the Ministry of Youth and Sport for a novelty match. The winner and runner up will rake in several millions of naira with the ‘Professor Peller Memorial Cup’.
The source further added that he is planning to assemble several comedians and music artistes to perform at the grand finale.
Late Professor Abiola Peller attended the school of Magic in India. After graduation, he relocated to Liberia, then Nigeria where he became prominent with his wife Lady Peller. They both performed and gathered a massive fan base across Africa. Until his untimely death, he remained Africa’s top magic performer.
