“No electricity in my house till my final year in secondary school. I never slept on a mattress throughout my high school because we had just one for my parents! We always do 1-0-1 (I’m used to it till now). We would trek from ojaba to Labo/Oranyan every other day to fetch drinking water. We never had a Tv until after my secondary education,” his post read.
Ademola, however, gave all the glory to God as he acknowledged his current position in life. For the actor, the journey is still far as he still has a lot to accomplish in life.
