Fuji maestro gushes about son's academic achievement

The fuji legend was ecstatic in his praise for his son who had maintained an enviable academic performance.

In his long texts posted yesterday, the proud father narrated the impressive transition made by his offspring who has secured a spot to study Economics at the University of Exeter, England.

This was possible through Ademola's drive and academic excellence as stated by his father who wrote:

"GLORY BE TO GOD ALMIGHTY: See how time flies, little did I know that El-Amin Tomowa Adio Ademola my Son, would grown so fast to do myself and his mother soo proud.. Born 20th February 1999 at Guys Hospital London Bridge.

"Started his education at Eaton school, for his primary between 2003 - 2010, then moved up to King Canterbury for his secondary school, he spent 2 yrs there and due to non availability of boarding space we decided to change him to Eastbourne College for his remaining 3 yrs secondary education.

"He came out with A's all through and that secure him continuation of his education at Eastbourne for his A levels. Adio is moving up now to "Exester" University for his degree in Economics and I'm soooo happy.

"Aiye ti Esin o je, bi iru idie bani suuru aaje jubelo. (Yoruba proverb expressing the importance of patience and perseverence)

"This is not a lone glory, Olayinka Agbeke ( Alfa) double congratulations to you, A mother in million that you are.

"TOMIWA, has done us proud today and my prayer for him is, as he has done to us, so shall he reap bountiful from his struggles and efforts in life, and he shall be known across the globe and his own children shall make him proud the more."

KWAM 1, still in his joyous mood was all about prayers as he hoped that other parents get to enjoy the same good fortune that came to his family.

"To you fathers and mothers of the world doing struggles day and night on raising of your children, you shall all smile and never shed hot tears over them.. myself and agbeke dancing today, so you all shall dance.

"IJO OLOMO. AIYE TUNTUN SHE-SHE BERE NII. (Yoruba proverbial saying expressing the joy of parenthood)"

The Fuji legend who was forced to drop out of school due to the death of his father no doubt understands the value of formal education.

On December 12, 2015, he celebrated the Call to the Bar ceremony of his daughter, Damilola Basirat Ayinde Marshal.

This coincided with the day a former Lagos State governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola, did the same with his daughter.
