I was born on August 26, 1928, at Adetunji compound, Popoyemoja, Ibadan, to the family of Olayiwola and Alhaja Suwebat Adetunji. My father was a tailor. I am the first born of my parents’ 17 children. My father had five wives with my mother as his first wife. The story of my parents was interesting. Four years separated their ages and they both died within four years. My father died in 1989 while my mother died in 1993.
