Birth & Growing up

Birth

I was born on the 7th of November, few decades ago to the family of Gani & Nike Onajobi  and christened Onajobi, Abidemi Samuel Olasunkanmi .

 

In the neigbourhood I grew up (itun Imosan, Ilisan Remo), I was known as "Abidemi Oga Onopa" meaning "Bidemi, the Police boss". This was due to my love for and pride of The Nigerian Police and an ambition to be enlisted. However, as I grew up, I came to see corruption and indiscipline in the force which made it unattractive to me and led to a change of dream.
