A superlative birthday shout out to me🙇🙇🙇. I’m a definition of grace. I was born into a very humble family. My father never owned a motorcycle let alone car. My father never bought a TV not until after my secondary school.

I grew up in one of the “slumest” slums in Ibadan. No electricity for several years, I had to make use of “kuufin” (local lamp😊) while reading for my SSCE (We had only one lantern which no one dare touch🙇). I had my university education 13 years after my sec school, yet I’m being celebrated in this manner.


You have taken me beyond my childhood aspirations. I have wined and dined with those I never imagined I could even met. Thank you Lord. Thank You Lord for giving me the most wonderful and awesome “3Fs”
*Family *Friends *Fans.
I appreciate you all.”

In November 2016, Muyiwa Ademola, was in the news prior to a decision he made to jet out of Nigeria with his wife of more than a decade, Omolara and his kids including his grown up twins, whom he got from his long-time baby mama.
