It would cost you N1.2 billion to have lunch with Warren Buffett

Published

on

Ever wondered what it would be like to have lunch with Warren Buffett, the fourth-richest person in the world?

That would make for a very exciting adventure, not to talk of the many business lessons you would surely learn while at it.

However, dining with the fourth-richest man in the world and learning from his overflowing stream of knowledge isn’t just an all-dressed-up and candle lights kind of thing. It’s going to cost you a whopping $3.5 million. Convert that to naira and we are talking over N1.2 billion.
According to Forbes, lunch with the prolific, world-renowned investor, known as the ‘power meal’ is one sure way to learn about the biggest deals and most important investing advice.
The Real Catch: For twenty years, Warren Buffett has been auctioning an off lunch to the public for the highest bidder in other to support one of his charities ‘San Francisco’s Glide Foundation’ with its profit.
People are jumping at it: While you might be slacking and wondering why in the world you may want to splash that kind of money over lunch, many people are already paying up. Within 48 hours after the bidding kicked off on May 26, the record winning bid of $3.456 which was set in 2016 was surpassed.
Since the introduction of the bid in 2000, an opportunity to have a private lunch with Buffett and seven friends have helped to raise $30 million to support Buffett’s charity.
About San Francisco’s Glide Foundation: Glide was founded about 50 years ago. It is a foundation that focuses on stopping the cycle of poverty in San Francisco, which also provides aid and advocates for marginalised individuals and families.
A taxed Lunch: The power meal is surely taxed. Of course, it has to be! Imagine eating a $3.5 million worth of meal; the government has a good reason to be worried.
The truth is that many underprivileged people have benefited from this power lunch. So, you might want to book your slot. In 2010 and 2011, a man named Ted Wechsler single-handedly purchased two slots for $2,626,311 and $2,626,411; respectively. The next year, Ted was hired as the second investment manager at Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett’s conglomerate which owns Geico, Dairy QueenNetJets, and more.
So, what are you waiting for? o book your lunch date with a billionaire! Seriously though, would you actually splash that amount of money for a lunch date with anybody? Many of us around here cannot even relate…

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
