Teju Babyface is no longer a small boy. The popular entertainer is celebrating his 37th birthday today.
Birth name, Olateju Oyelakin, born on January 20, 1979.
Teju attended the prestigious Corona School in Lagos for his elementary education before proceeding to Federal Government College in Ogbomoso.
Teju after his O’level education proceeded to the University of Lagos where he studied Insurance, a course he claims was handed over to him after he didn’t meet up with the list for Accounting. According to him ‘I never set out to read Insurance. As a matter of fact, I was largely uninterested in all the courses that were on offer and I left the choice of my major to my parents who put in for accounting whereupon I was offered Insurance, which we had to take.
Teju became famous after staring in the widely successful Nigeria movie, ‘Diamond Ring’ alongside Richard Mofe Damijo and Liz Benson.
He went on to launch a career as a comedian, MC and television host and remains one of the veterans in the industry.
