My name is Bello Ayodeji Olaide, I attended foundation model nursery and primary school,Oyo , Socrates college, Ilorin and the Kwara state cails, where I studied mass communication.
Growing up was fun but at the same time my parents paid huge attention to education so we grew up reading a lot and accomplishing tasks in the house everyday.
