Benin Kingdom in Nigeria . The title Esama traditionally means the "Son of the people.

The Esama of Benin's business empire includes an international property portfolio and a private TV and radio station. He owns a private bank, oil refinery, diamond, gold, marble mines over Africa, a private university (Igbinedion University, the first private university in Nigeria) and a large number of hotels. He previously owned the now-defunct private airline, Okada Air, of over 40 aircraft (planes and helicopters). He has built numerous churches including a Grand Catholic Cathedral, and has set up and owns a number of private hospitals across Nigeria.
One of the Esama's sons, Lucky , was a two-term Local Government Chairman and two-term Governor of Edo State, another, Charles, was a Local Government Chairman and one time Edo State Commissioner of Education, while yet another, Peter, was the Managing Director of Nigerian Aviation Authority. Esama's daughter, Omosede is in the House of Representatives for Edo State.

Edo people will never forget how Lucky Igbinedion embezzled the budget and was let off by the court with a slap on the wrist. Nigerian leaders (elected or not) are a curse to the country, disasters in human form. The Esama's children are in the positions they are, not because they deserve to be there, but simply due to nepotism.
