Nigerians recently awoke to news that the country’s oldest airline, Aero Contractors was pulling out after a long battle with financial crisis.
While many are hopeful about the ‘ember months bringing forth something positive, it wouldn’t be the same for almost 2000 people who hitherto were staff of the now going out-of-business-airline.
One of these people is the amiable celebrity pilot, Captain Tunde Demuren who is popular OAP, Toolz’ husband. Captain Demuren as he is fondly called is a pilot for Aero which is now going out of commercial activities following a break down in the management which was being done by AMCON. The agency took over the troubled airline in 2011 after the management failed to repay its loan.
This development is coming three months after the couple had their grand white wedding in Dubai and eight months after their Lagos traditional wedding which held at the Landmark Event Centre in Lagos.
Observers however tell BlackBox Nigeria that the handsome pilot has very little to fear as it wouldn’t take him much time to bounce back and get into the employs of another airline.
Tunde Demuren is the son of Harold Demuren, a former Director General of National Civil Aviation Authority who remains one of the most powerful Nigerians in the aviation industry.
Another close source however further revealed to BBN that the pilot might however venture fulltime into the entertainment industry.
It might interest you to know that a young Tunde Demuren once had a dream to become a rapper which didn’t get the approval of his dad who insisted on him being a pilot. He has however been involved in the management of Banky W’s EME which has his elder brother, Segun Demuren as a co-owner.
There is however no cause for alarm, Tunde Demuren is a big boy who isn’t going broke anytime soon. Moreover, his bae, Princess Tolu Oniru better known as Toolz also has a great job as an OAP and Assistant Director of Programs at Beat FM.
