Adekunle BBN Biography
Adekunle Big Brother Naija was born Adekunle Tobilola Olopade, on the 6th of October 1994 into the family of then Mr. and Mrs. Bolanle Olopade, who hail from Lagos state, Nigeria. He was given a multidimensional upbringing; his father is a Christian, while his mother is of the Muslim faith. Adekunle has a brother; but sadly, his parents have long since been divorced.
Adekunle Olopade grew up in Lagos, Nigeria. He had his secondary school education at Kings College, Lagos and graduated in 2010. For his university education, he went to Redeemers University, where he graduated in 2014, with a degree in Accountancy. During his school days, Adekunle picked up a nick-name; he was called Elder Statesman because he showed exceptional foresight.
Adekunle became quite productive as a writer; he authored a few books, as well as contributed to magazines and other journals. From there he went ahead to establish himself as an entrepreneur; he is the co-founder of “Adire Nation.” Adekunle has already gained some recognition for his work; he was interviewed by “The Entrepreneur Africa” to talk about his enterprise, and the vision that led up to the establishment of this Adire Nation.
In that interview he explained what pride he gets from refocusing the minds of the youths of Africa about how good our own fashion and dress sense really are.
Aside from that promising venture, he also has another business establishment as a Digital Marketing Consultant. In the future he has his eyes set on Politics and Humanitarian services.
It was on the back of this impressive resume that Adekunle Olopade went into the house of the Big Brother Naija reality show as a contestant for the season 7 of the show titled Level Up.
In The Big Brother Naija House
Adekunle BBN will be remembered as the small guy with the big beard. He demonstrated several layers of his personality which he changed as easily as he changed clothes. One minute he was a playful talkative person; dressed in gangster clothes, and the next minute he would become this deeply meditative person who is almost philosophical in his speech.
He stated that one of his strengths was his ability to be a peacemaker, but he had no problem becoming an enforcer whenever the need should arise.
He became quite popular in the house, and among the audience; he became the Head of House (HoH) for the week (August 5th-August 13th).
He was quite assertive when he was in the house; this assertiveness could have characterized him as overbearing. In an interview he said he understood that many people may get him wrong. He spoke about his traits which may be offensive to his fellow housemates. He said: “the fact that I am always right, and by the way, I never say anything I am not sure of.” Aside from that, another thing was: “I have recently learned that I use a lot of Big Grammar when I speak.”
Despite this, he was able to go through the Big Brother Naija show without any major incidences, and even become a finalist. Adekunle could truly have won the show if he had been a tad luckier.
After Big Brother Naija
After Big Brother Naija, Adekunle returned to his philosophical self. On his social media (twitter) he posted a very powerful composition.
When all is said and done and the noise quiets down, when you’re by yourself in your true element and alone with your thoughts. I hope you ask yourself this, have I won? If yes, at what cost? Was it really worth it? Remember, there will always be yesterday, today and forever.
Those words ring true in life, and they also seem like something coming from a man who was not happy with himself. Perhaps he regretted joining the Big Brother Naija show?
In any case, Adekunle Olopade’s social media following has multiplied exponentially; and that will no doubt bring more eyes to his work as an author, and boost business for his Adire Nation brand.
