Background of Muyiwa Ademola
Muyiwa Ademola was born in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria, on the 26th of January 1971 to Rebecca and Isaiah Ademola. He attended St. David’s High School in Molete, Ibadan, for his elementary and secondary schooling. He completed his tertiary studies at the University of Ibadan, where he earned a diploma in Adult Education and Community Development.
Muyiwa Ademola’s Career
Muyiwa has always been arts-inclined, despite being a science student in secondary school, because he only thought of ways to be creative. He used to sketch and draw brilliantly without supervision back then, and he had a dream of writing stories for the Nigerian film business.
He went to meet Shola Ogunshola, better known as Isho, in 1988 to tell him his experiences, but Shola turned him down, claiming he was too young for the position.
After finishing secondary school, he continued to tell his stories to various individuals until he met Charles Olumo, commonly known as Agbako, who gave him his first large contract.
After some time, he met S.I Ola, a movie director who taught him everything he needed to know about performing and film production. He began his acting career in 1991 as a result of this meeting. Meanwhile, in 1995, he turned his first written story into a film, Asise, which means BLUNDER.
Muyiwa Ademola has since produced, directed, and starred in a number of Yoruba Nollywood films. In 1997, the film Ogo Osupa catapulted him into the spotlight. Aderonke, Akinkanju, Iyonu Olorun, Etutu Emi, and other films from his early career include Aderonke, Akinkanju, Iyonu Olorun, Etutu Emi, and others.
Ademola was involved in a fatal car accident in January 2013, which nearly killed him.
Muyiwa Ademola is married to Omolara Ademola and has five children together. On the 23rd of June 2006, Ademola married Omolara. The pair met through a mutual friend in Abeokuta. They dated for four years before marrying.
Omolara claims it was love at first sight. She also stated that their marriage has lasted this long because of their patience and trust.
Omolara further remarked that Ademola is a God-fearing and kind man of God. She is from the state of Ondo.
Prior to marrying Omolara, Ademola was involved in a relationship that resulted in the birth of twins. Ademola has twin boys from a long-ago relationship with an undisclosed woman. The twins were born on July 25, 1997, and are currently residing in the United States with their families. According to a source close to the situation, the couple split up due to religious disagreements and their parents’ inability to reach an agreement.
Omolara has been looking after the twins since they were seven years old. Omolara is a successful businesswoman who also helps her husband in his Nollywood career.
Muyiwa Ademola is Schemelink Properties Limited’s brand ambassador.
A report circulated a few years ago that Ademola’s wife and Mosun Filani had fought over the actor. In actuality, Ademola’s wife, Omolara, was found to have poured acid on the actress. The actor’s wife, however, has now debunked the rumors.
Ademola and his family moved to Texas, in the United States of America, in November 2016. Initially, it was presumed that the actor and his family were on vacation, but Ademola’s return three months later was unexpected.
According to a family source, the actor relocated his family because he wanted his children to receive a good education.
Nollywood Stars Death
At least four Nollywood movie stars died in a month in 2017, and Ademola blamed this newest fatality on cumulative stress. Actors and actresses, he claims, work around their coworkers and rarely have time to see a doctor.
Muyiwa Ademola House
In 2013, Ademola finished his residence in Ibadan’s Oluyole Estate. It is estimated that the property is valued at more than N20 million. It’s a duplex with five bedrooms.
Apostle Tope Onileowo, the founder of Rock of Prayer Christian Center in Houston, Texas, presented the actor with a car.
In 2013, the apostle had seen Ori for the first time. It should be remembered that Ori was released in 2004 and won the Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Indigenous Film. Ori was also nominated for the same award for Best Musical Score, but it didn’t win.
Oga Bello, Mama Awro, Eda, Jide Kosoko, Fathia Balogun, Saheed Balogun, Dejo Tunfulu, Shola Kosoko, and Rasaq Olayiwola starred in the film.
The Key to Success
God and his hard work are credited with the actor’s achievement. He said that he can spend up to ten years on a single script.
Muyiwa Ademola Caucus
Femi Adebayo, Toyosi Adesanya, Toyin Abraham, Adebayo Tijani, Afeez Eniola, Opeyemi Adetunji, and Dele Odule are all members of the TAMPAN Caucus.
According to the actor, his most uncomfortable incident occurred in Ireland when he met a lady who uncovered her breast for him to sign a document.

Muyiwa Ademola Quotes
“Most times, disappointments could be huge blessings. Don’t be let down when the one in whom you put so much hope comes short of your expectations.”
“Let’s live like tomorrow will never come. Let’s work like we want to feed the world. Love like you are loving yourself.”
“Sometimes, we are punished for offenses we never committed!”
“Live and let live, shine and allow others to shine as well. No man born of woman will have the power to obstruct your greatness.”
“Stay on your lane and stay focused. Be consistent and be optimistic. You are envious of other people’s achievements, who says yours which is on the way isn’t bigger? Many achieved nothing because they left certainty.”
“Don’t let success get to your head or failure get to your heart.”
“Road to greatness is never smooth. The path to success is always rough. The journey isn’t always attractive but refusal to embark on it amounts to failure.”
