Oil Mogul and Billionaire, Femi Otedola has been in the news in the last 24 hours along his three daughters after he got each of them a Ferrari Portofino at a combined cost of over 240 million naira with various social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter talking about the billionaire’s surprise present to his beautiful daughters.
While Florence (DJ Cuppy), Olawumi and Temi are much more known and popular in the media, Femi’s only son and heir, Fewa Otedola is relatively unknown to many Nigerians. I believe majorly, the Otedola’s try to be as private as much as possible when it has to do with the only son of the family, Fewa.
Fewa who turned twenty (20) some couple of months ago was born on the 2nd of June, 2000. In 2017, about three years ago, Femi’s First child, Temi Otedola revealed via her blog post that Fewa has a disorder; Autism.
In her words, Temi wrote: “Essentially, autism is a social development disorder which affects the cognitive, communicative and interactive ability of the brain. People with autism struggle with heightened sensory stimulation and need a lot of attention and support from their parents, teachers and siblings to ensure they can lead the most productive and happy life possible. Raising awareness is not the main goal at this point–understanding is, and even more important–acceptance.
She continued: “In 2004, my mum called my sisters and me into her bedroom. With the composure only a mother can have, she told us that our baby brother, Fewa, had ‘special needs’. While my sisters asked questions, all I could do was think about what this would mean for me, the already overindulged, youngest of three girls. Every day, I see him becoming more independent. Our relationship is becoming less one-sided; I can truly say that we are friends. Fewa doesn’t need anyone’s sympathy. He is the most genuine and caring person I know.” she said.
Apart from being a family that is blessed with wealth and fortune, the Otedola’s family is one that is closely knitted together with love and a strong bond. Fewa I presume loves to keep a very low profile and thus, has very little social media presence unlike his sisters and barely spends time on Instagram; this explains why he has very few pictures on his Instagram page.
One thing you cannot deny about the young man is that he is a very handsome and happy young lad who tries to wear a nice smile each and every time.
