October 17, (THEWILL) – Controversial socialite and businesswoman, Rosemary Osula, who has been absent from the social circles for a while, is back with a doctorate degree from Crescent University, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Osula, who now wishes to be addressed as Princess Hadessah Osula Mku-Atu, was conferred with a Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa) in Business Administration by the institution during its combined 12th and 13th convocation held on Saturday October 16, 2021, in recognition of her contributions to education, healthcare and social service through the Rosula Foundation, a non-governmental organisation she founded.

Rosula, as she is fondly called, not only dominated the social scene, her massive office complex situated on Adeniran Ogunsanya Road in the Surulere area of Lagos was always a beehive of activities with many going there to see her for one favour or another. But somewhere along the line, her businesses began to decline after she failed to service a N1.9 billion loan, which she took from Union Bank and the defunct Intercontinental bank to enable her purchase pre-paid meters for Power Holding Company of Nigeria. Her office, by court order, remained under lock and key for many years before a commercial bank finally took possession of it.

After ending her marriage to a Benue State-born politician, Rosula married the late Ogun State-born politician, Senator Buruji Kashamu. The marriage ended after he instituted an alleged child-trafficking case against her. She had deceived Buruji into thinking that he impregnated her and she gave birth to a set of twins. Unfortunately, the bubble burst. It turned out she sourced the children from different towns. Devastated, Kashamu forced her to vomit all the resources he invested in the pregnancy. The shame was too much for her to bear, forcing her to relocate from Lagos to Abuja.

Now in her third marriage, this time to a younger man, Rosula seems to have bounced back in the business world, going by how much money she dispenses via her foundation. She now plays big in the real estate sector via her Nehemiah Grace Limited, Sharon Properties Ltd and Jezreel Grace Villa and Apartment Ltd. Her tentacles also spread to the financial services sector, telecommunications, manufacturing and tourism.
