‘I Grew Up In The Slums Of Ibadan’- Muyiwa Ademola Reflects On Life As He Turns 47 Today
Nollywood actor, Muyiwa Ademola who is celebrating his 47th birthday today, has taken time out to reflect on his life and small beginnings.
The award winning actor, via instagram, shared the picture above and 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 secondary 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’.
