Happy Birthday Odunlade

A Yoruba movie super star Odunlade Adekola is a year older today. 

He was born on 31 December 1978 at
Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State , southwestern Nigeria. He is, however, an indigine of Otun Ekiti, Ekiti State .

He attended St John's Primary School and St. Peter's College in Abeokuta, obtaining the West African School Certificate Examination before he proceeded to Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, where he received a diploma certificate. 

Odunlade Adekola started acting at a very early age. According to him, whenever any anniversary was to hold in his church (the Christ Apostolic Church, Lafenwa, Abeokuta), he and a friend named Tunde would request to play jesters, and this request was always granted. 

He would then write a "script" for a comedy play involving just two characters (him and his friend). That was how it all began for this professional actor, director and producer. Adekola has featured in more than 100 Yoruba
