Background I was born into the family of the late Alhaji Mustapha Ade Kasunmu and the late Alhaja Idera Kasunmu. My father was the popular Alhaji Oyinbo Onipanla (White man selling stock fish). I hail from a family of 54 children. My father had six legal wives and other women. Only one of the wives is alive today. In a year, my father could do six baby naming ceremony. So, all of us had our set. While my parents were alive they did very well and after their departure, their legacy lives on. All the children are into business. I studied secretarial studies in London and returned to Nigeria after my graduation.
