I Am Still Benefitting From My Father’s Inheritance- Life Coach, Ronke Taiwo Reveals

For Adelekan Adeyemo

Today it is 29 years since my father transited into glory and I still thank God I came from that loins.

My father was very intelligent always topping his class year after year with plenty scholarships.

He graduated as a pharmacist from Obafemi Awolowo University at 22years.

Got married at 23.

Birth 5 of us before he clocked forty.

The things he had achieved at forty before he died, no be small.

In case you didnt know I also graduated at 21years from university (5 year course oh) and married shortly after.

So when people say I am rushing I just smile, shake my head and say, you didnt know my father.

A man who died at forty (29 years ago) and I am still benefiting from his inheritance now.

A man who married a quiet woman of steel. Even his children’s children will benefit from his inheritance.

Baba mi. Eniyan rere.

Tall, dark, and handsome.

A man who is a sanguine through and through. His dance steps nko na helele.

See as I fine in his hands.

Adelekan, omo Gegeola, omo Adeyemo, Oko Sarah Abosede, Baba Wole.

Keep resting on. I love you like kilode and the little fragments of the memories I have of you, I still hold on tightly to.
