While growing up, i was driven to culture and history due to the dynamics of habits; music, dance and story telling from my linkages to Royal Houses. From Egba Ilawo to Arigbajo, From Ipokia to Iboro, a princely priesthood was common.
Thus, i was also inspired by modern migration, health issues and the need to experience the culture of other lands and seek a balance. Our namings and method of keeping the family character and ties, apporach to herbs and habits, etc embelished my today.
Faith in Christ drives me to the edge...and technology brings the world to us all. From Taking IT Global to Facebook, Lagurdia University Blackboard to 2020 Reality Check. I have a dossier for faulures, pains and heartbreaks. So many controversies that have shaped me but not define me. How i survived academic corridors, character assasination, etc. I have come a long way.
While i love wearing my Cultural Attires, i am willing to wear the suit for survival in the business industry. My people are still a slave to foreign culture. Some love to take credit for what i do. Others love to same my hopes. I am not a saint, definitely not you. I can do all the positive you ask me, and the positives. At least, i get paid for the Publicity created...pepper pays !

My story is in-complete without my parents. Nothing is sweet like parenting...i should know since i am a father now. Love is simply an act of thinking and doing what we believe is in the best intrest of the person in question. My Parent get level.
My Father was a man that made respect look like the air we breath; its a must! A distinctive Engineer that awed by family and friends. He cared too much for all. Love him everyday of my life.
My Mother,daughter of a great love story. She was kind, pleasant and remembered everyday for showing me the planet. Miss you always.
So, in the background,we have many more Akinbo's of Ilawo, Obanla's of Ipokia's, Owolabi's of Iboro, Masaku's of Arigbajo, ; Uncle's , Aunties, Nephew, Sisters, Step-Mom's, Wives, etc. Nothing do us! We love parties and enjoy the company of family. We are a mix of Christians, Muslims and the Obvious. Yoruba Spirituality does not tell tales of falsehood.
