Nigerian Real estate mogul and lawyer, Udo Maryanne Okonjo has disclosed that her first daughter, Chidi, is building her first investment property in Bali, Indonesia.
Chidi is a travelling entreprenuer and worked for a tech company in New York as a business analyst before she started her business. She was born in Canada and grew up in Nigeria and South Africa.
During a question and answer session on Instagram, the 25-year-old said she didn’t take any loan or financing for her villa but paid it out of her own pocket.

Sharing a glimpse of the house which is still under construction, Mrs Okonjo said she is proud of her daughter and challenged women to start investing in Real Estate.
“I couldn’t be more proud! Daughter 1 is building her first investment property. Who says women can’t command wealth? And who says it can’t start as early as you decide to take charge of your life,” she wrote.
“Choosing to challenge more women to create the right income streams and get onto the property ladder.
“PS. Please note that gender biases are still in place all over the world. Women tend to spend more especially on property and construction because they aren’t considered as knowledgeable. So be sure to have knowledgeable advocates/advisors on your side if needed.”
