Odunlade Adekola Biography

Odunlade Adekola Date Of Birth: He was born on December 31st, 1976 in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. He attended the Saint John RCM primary school, and later Saint Peter’s college, both in Abeokuta. After being into acting for some years, Odunlade Adekola is currently running an undergraduate in one of the universities in Nigeria. He has not disclosed which university this is due what he called “personal reasons”.
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, whose name he gave as “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 started for this professional actor, director and producer.
After being motivated by the likes of Taiwo Hassan, Adebayo Salami, Lere Paimo, and other genius Yoruba actors in Nollywood, he entered the professional scene around 2005. However, he never started becoming increasing popular until 2007. He received training and additional motivation from Isola Durojaye (Alasari), now late, who believed in his potential and assisted him in bringing out the best in him.
