Muyiwa Ademola recounts his experience when he was younger. he said, he got into university 13 years after leaving secondary school.
You can tell how hard it was for him. Ademola is celebrating his 47th birthday today and he made a brief reminisce on the past in this piece, he wrote.
According to the award winning actor and movie producer, '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'.
