Adewale had F9 parallel in the West African School Certificate Examnination (WASCE) in 1987.

He said the reason for his failure was his social life, as he was not really serious about his education at the time.

Man with 18 girlfriends fails WAEC, but made first-class

He revealed that while in secondary school, he had at least 18 girlfriends in his kitty and that he was also a break dancer.

His words:

“Then, I was too social and had about 18 girlfriends in almost all Ibadan schools. In those days, we always went to different schools for inter-house sports and I would want to have at least one girlfriend in any school we visited. I am talking of the 80s now. So, I think it was my social life.”

Even after registering for GCE, he did not earn the required number of credits, so he travelled to Cote d’Ivoire and became a meat seller.

His failure in WAEC delayed his progress in life as his classmates overtook him, and he went to university before he did.

In an interview with The Punch Newspapers, Adewale said he returned to Nigeria in 1995 and made serious efforts to return to school.

He was admitted to the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, in 1997 and graduated first-class.

Adewale went on to excel in life despite the initial setback in his WAEC. He is now a PhD holder and lecturer at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
