“It is my Birthday and I am super happy.

I grew up in Ojaba, Ibadan! A real slum! 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 all now).

We would trek from Ojaba to Labo/Oranyan every other day go fetch drinking water. We never had a TV until after my secondary education.

Never celebrated my birthday until I clocked 25. We eat chicken only once during Christmas time (Except an hen drop dead than we….komalo ku ni “gifa” PAUSE!

I wrote these following films with just school cert; Akinkaju, Iyonu Olorun, Ogo Osupa and Ori! Went back to the Uni, 12 years after my secondary education. PAUsE! (A films is coming on it later). Can you see why you just need to say Thank God on my behalf? Never believe I could!

It is my birthday again, I just want to say THANK GOD for bringing me this far. The journey is still far Happy Birthday To Me, Oluwamuyiwa Adeyinka Stephen Ademola.”
