Every child has an unlocked potential but the time and ways of displaying the skill sets differ. This brought the entourage of News Live Nigeria to meeting one Adebayo Israel Olamilekan popularly known as Adigun Olowe Yoruba, who has been gushing out the precious stuff God endowed him since childhood.
Adigun Olowe Yoruba, a four-year old boy and nursery one pupil of Tabitha Nursery and Primary school, Felele Ibadan is an embodiment of childlikeness, maturity, and cognizance. Can a kid be childish and at the same time be cognizant and mature?
His father, Mr. Adebayo Oladimeji Ishola sheds more light on how “the mystery of a child”, Adigun Olowe Yoruba owned these three unbelievable attributes.
” One day, my wife and I were discussing so I had to dig deep with a Yoruba proverb to make my point much clearer to my wife. Before I knew it, my boy came to me after some time to tell me that he had memorized the wise saying. I was shocked to the bone so I challenged him to tell me, he requoted the word as I earlier stated it; Aye ko òótó, òrun ò fé èké (the world rejects the truth and the heaven is against deception). I gave him another word and he memorized it within a flash, then another word, then a poem, he did the same. From that day onwards, I’d seen that he would be a good patriot in the future”, the father said recounting how he discovered how brilliant Adigun could be.
Mr. Adebayo who saw the capacity and coming of Adigun Olowe Yoruba to his family as a blessing and comfort to his past misses considering how challenging life was for him growing up as he had to drop out of Obafemi Awolowo University after his father’s death over thirteen years ago to be with his mum at the hospital who also died eight months later.
Though Mr. Adebayo later re-enrolled to bag his Bachelor’s degree in Economics, it was not a rosy experience but grateful to God that Israel has combined the quality of speaking in parables attributed to his grandfather and the reasonable side of verbosity known his father for.
According to him, Adigun Olowe is overly playful, chatty, and troublesome which the generality of the public has labelled as “a share of lion heart”. This is a testament to the childlikeness of the genius and the pointer to the fact he’s is still a kid. Whereas, the chap’s wit is undeniable as he’s always a step ahead of most of his contemporaries.
” He had one time made a video that people contacted us from abroad to gift him cash and gifts appreciating his cognizance and how mature he presented his speech among older folks when he just clocked four at the time”, the father recalled.
Responding to questions, Adigun’s father said the boy’s ingenuity is beyond his own imagination. The boy sleeps usually like his age group, go about his normal routine, and still has ample time and memory to store the precious deposits of knowledge he has in his head.
Without being magical, there’s some kind of insinuations that surrounded his birth according to his parents as it coincided with exactly a year after which the first fruit of the Adebayos was born but couldn’t survive.
The father confessed that there are times where the Whiz does outshine him in intelligence test ” I thought him «oríkì olúwa» and he could recite it better than I can now”.
Not only is Adigun a professor of memorisation and accuracy, but the parents also attested that he does understand everything he relays to the public, work with the core values and allow the chivalrous teachings of the traditional Yoruba practices govern his life and doings even though he’s brought up in accordance with 21st-century parenting model.
In our conversation with Mrs. Adebayo Olateju Gbonjubola who happened to be the mother of the brainy Adigun Olowe, she expressed her amazement over the rapid and geometric rate of the development of the boy. She said that the family’s only way of showing appreciation to God over his life is to shower the boy with the parental care and love he needs to make him realise his potentials.
“I’m very happy to have him as my son. Even though he’s playful, I’ve learned to live with him, allow him flourish, not despise him and grow him in his pace”; she asserted.
The parents notified the teeming supporters and ever_growing fans of Adigun Olowe Yoruba to anticipate for the enlargement of the Adigun Olowe brand and investment that would shake the airwaves in due course as plans are underway to begin investing with the thinker’s brand.
When our correspondents spoke with Adigun Olowe Yoruba himself, he said: ” I’m four years old but I’m not a kid”. The boy who admitted that his father has been his source of inspiration reiterated that he would not desist from giving his fans the best and being a model for his peers.
