The stories we are beginning to see these days are proof that no physical challenge can stop from finding true love. The other day, a young man got married to his woman on a wheel chair (HERE), and just last weekend a physically challenged female lecturer in Imo state married her soul mate (HERE). And now, one Miss Bukola Adeosun has exchanged marital vows with Mr Dada Olawale
Afolabi, who is hit with cerebral palsy and mobile disability.
With families, friends and colleagues rejoicing with them, the grand
wedding which was tagged #loveoverall2017, took place in Lagos.
Amazingly, the groom is a graduate of International Law and
Diplomacy from Babcock University and said to be a resourceful marketer.
According to Dada’s brother Gbenga, the miracle Dada enjoys lies in his will to live and be a survivor.
He said, “In a repressive society like ours, he would easily have been
tagged a victim or a welfare case, but no, he chose to be a survivor;
advocating the cause for cerebral palsy awareness and equal
opportunities/rights for C.P patients in Nigeria. Keywords: HE CHOSE.
You are who you choose to be, not who people say you are. He is fast
becoming a media sensation; Olawale has been interviewed on various TV
and radio stations- from Channels TV to TVC (actually, watch out for his
recent interview with TVC). He is a serial entrepeneur. He is a
graduate of International Law and Diplomacy from Babcock University.When
anyone tries to speak failure or impossibility over your life, tell
them about Dada Olawale.”
Congrats to the couple.

It is no longer news that seasoned broadcaster and actor, Sadiq
Daba, is down with leukaemia. Unknown to many of his fans and admirers,
the actor, whose role in Kunle Afolayan’s award-winning film, ‘October
1’, attracted a lot of attention awhile ago, practically lives on a drug
called Gleevec, used for the treatment of the disease. Although he gets supplies of the drug free-of-charge from the

obtained from the institution.
