Meet 9-Year-Old Siju Olawepo Who Has ‘Calendar Dates In His Brain’ by JosEast(m): 6:23pm On Feb 05
A primary five pupil of Carol School in Lagos, Siju Olawepo is a calendar prodigy who knows the day for any date supplied to him, as far back as the 16th century. The nine-year-old genius provides corresponding day to any date he is given almost faster than an internet search engine. This innate ability was first noticed by one of his teachers who observed that he was always demanding for plain sheets to design calendars. Later he was seen designing calendars for the future without the aid of any existing one.

Nine-year-old Siju Olawepo Siju, like a soothsayer, once given a date, can tell the corresponding day of the week. In addition to knowing the dates, he also doesn’t forget any date he knows. He can tell anybody the particular day of the week he/she was born. Within seconds, he told the Daily Trust reporter her birthday while he also said Nigeria will be 100 years on Friday, October 1, 2060. He was also quick to say it would be a leap year.

When asked how he came about knowing days with their corresponding dates, he response was, “I just know it. My instinct tells me dates with the corresponding days. It comes naturally to me, I cannot explain how.” Daily Trust gathered from Siju’s computer teacher, Mr. David Ugiomoh, that what the boy enjoys doing most is designing calendars.

“He was always coming to my office to ask for plain sheets for designing calendars. I and others in the school initially thought he was copying from an existing calendar until the day he came to my office to design a calendar for year 2023. When I checked the dates on my phone, I saw that they were all correct,” “Then I started asking him days for different dates and he was answering correctly. I also asked him for the day to my birthday, which he provided seamlessly.

I was baffled and discovered he was a genius,” he explained. Siju said his future ambition is to become an horticulturist and will plant varieties of flowers.

Impressive for his age but he is using one of two common formulas used to do this either Zeller rule formula or Key value date formula which he must have been taught by his dad or mum..but for his age it's impressive, very impressive that he has memorized the formula

Lol why did you conclude that am jobless? do you know me personally? or are you my account manager?
If you don't know I have my own business and i make my own money without being a slave for anyone, this is why I can spend alot of time on the Internet.

Besides I want the best for you, stop frequenting the Internet and start reading your books that's the most important think, the people you are also arguing and insulting here are not your mate either, when i was your age I was married to my books; do the same and stop thinking about rich guys you are going to date, types of dicks you like, assuming you spend much time on education thread it would have been better but you spend much time in romance and sexuality section, jeez! wise up kiddo.

Same here .

Do you know me ??

Are you staying with me ?

Why conclude that I don't read ?
Because you see me on nairaland probably in the morning and evening you conclude that I must not be reading ?

Who said I don't visit educational thread ?
Have you been to the education section ? . Empty nothing to Learn from !

Because you see my posts in one or two places doesn't mean I sleep on nairaland.

Whatever you did when you were my age is your problem .

Please where have I commented on a choice of d*ck ? .

That comment you saw on preference of rich guys was pun intended .

I haven't type this long In a post apart from my diary . So this should show you the 0.001% attention I gave to your frequent mentioning of my moniker .

You are even denying what you are a little girl who think she can curse guys who are far older than her because she have access to the Internet, and you are asking me what am doing here? are we the same age? I'm old enough to frequent here but you are not, you ain't an adult yet kiddo, and you are asking me if I know business section exist? check most of my posts and threads on both investments and business section.

All I want from you is the best, don't follow other girls ranting on romance section because they are totally useless, they have been used and dumped that's why they transformed into a sadistic feminist, use your head kiddo.

I was reading to see if anyone would use this word. None but you. That boy is a savant in the flesh...a Nigerian for that matter. This is beautiful

The dude saying the boy used a formula to recognize dates using either zeller rule or key value date....you are so DEAD WRONG. Google the savant "Kim Peek" aka the Rain Man and tell me he used zeller formula to memorise dates, books, phone numbers etcetera.... Kim and this 9-year old boy, Siju Olawepo, are just two among many savants. However, savants are a rare phenomenon.

On CNN, I saw a program that featured a savant who could draw an entire landscape of buildings, trees, streets, everything after taking a look at it without the aid of a picture of that landscape and he would miss nothing in the drawing. In fact, savants are blessed.
