Ageless, debonair and quick on his feet, Chief Jonathan Adio Obafemi Olopade celebrated his 90th birthday on the 31st of July and this weekend he was on the cover of ThisDay Style magazine.

According to the magazine, “When meeting Obafemi Olopade, one is struck by the air of youth, which belies his actual age” and “men like him are not made anymore”.

      Handsome. Wow at 90 no potbelly. If he looks this good, I can only imagine how he looked when he was younger. No wonder he fathered 15 children, women throwing themselves and him scoring a lot of goals.

    Very inspiring and insightful interview. My fave quotes: “……God has given everyone of us an opportunity in life….It is left to us to open our eyes and observe it….Don’t look at another person’s clock. Your clock is different from mine, mine is different from yours” Hallelujah somebody!!!
