Dele Odule wrote:

"The year is 1988. 35 years in retrospect. A young man Dele Odule, striving to find his feet and on the way to become an accomplished man. The journey had begun way before then. Always been a theatre man to the core. The big break will come 5 years after in 1993 with TI OLUWA N’ILE. God bless the legends Alh. Kareem Adepoju @baba_wande___ and Tunde Kelani @tkelani. It’s been a roller coaster journey with sweet memories since then. Glory to God for all of his kindness. Never despise your period of little beginnings and always remember that your dreams are valid. Hope lies in dreams and in the courage of those who try to make dreams into reality."
