Actor Muyiwa Ademola Celebrates Birthday, Recalls Humble Background


Today, January 26, is his birthday. For Nollywood actor, Muyiwa Ademola, life wasn’t as rosy as it is now. In a birthday message, he wrote:


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. What else can I say than to keep appreciating my CREATOR ? THANK YOU FATHER FOR ALLOWING ME WITNESS ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL YEAR ! ??” (sic)
