Seyi Awolowo: ‘Life as Awolowo’s grandson’

In a recent interview, Seyi Awolowo who participated in the 2019 Big Brother Naija edition spoke about life as the grandson of the nationalist, Obafemi Awolowo.


The reality star speaks about his career, family and the impact of his late grandfather’s name in his life.


Seyi during the interview revealed that being the grandson of Awolowo has not given him an edge in life, rather he has faced rejection because of his name.


He said;

“Being an Awolowo doesn’t give me an edge at all.

Sometimes, when one knocks on some doors, some people wouldn’t like the sound of one’s name and they would tell one to look elsewhere.

I have been turned down a couple of times because I probably didn’t merit the position. Some people may also not like my family or me.

At those times, I say it’s not my fault that I was born into the Awolowo family, so I move on.”

In the latter part of the interview, Seyi Awolowo spoke about his large family and educational background.



He continued;

“My childhood was a good one. I grew up in a large family.

We were 10 children and 20 grandchildren. Because I am the last child and grandchild, I learnt a lot from my 19 siblings. I had a strict background because we were guided by firm principles. My family was also conservative.

For my secondary education, I attended Federal Government College, Odogbolu, (Ogun State), and I proceeded to the Olabisi Onabanjo University, also in Ogun State. However, I left OOU in my final year and moved to the Houdegbe North American University, Cotonou, the Benin Republic, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.
