ENI O LE SE BI ALABARU L'OYINGBO, KO LE SE BI ADEGBORO L'OJA OBA. a short story by Nltaliban(m): 5:34pm On Nov 08, 2017
*ADEGBÖRÒ*

*ADEGBORO left Ibadan to Lagos in search of greener pasture. He chose to be carrying loads on his head at Oyingbo market to earn a living.*

Few years after, he bought a cart from his savings and this eased the pain of carrying loads on his head for commercial purposes. The Cart also increased his income and he was able to acquire 6 more of its kind which he rented out to others.

*Exactly 8 years in this cart pushing business, Adegboro bought a van which many called BOLEKAJA and learning how to drive, he handled the business by himself. 4 years into the Bolakaja business, Adegboro had been a proud owner of 6 Vans.*

Being a bona fide Ibadan son, ADEGBORO built a gigantic building at OJA OBA where the Olubadan Palace is situated when it was time to put a roof on his head.

*Many people at this period approached Adegboro to show them the secret behind his success. He simply asked them if they could carry loads on their heads in the market to earn income? And their response had always been NEVER.*

I hope this is true. I love that proverb though. Especially in Olamide's song using KWAM1's popular line. #OmoAniFowoshe!

Nice one...I always wonder what the story behind this saying is. As the elders always say "Itan lo di owe".
God bless you OP!
