A lot of people do not know much about Fewa Otedola, the only son of Nigerian billionaire, Femi Otedola. That is because unlike his 3 sisters – Temi, Tolani, and Florence (DJ Cuppy) – Fewa doesn’t appear frequently at social events.
How old is Fewa Otedola?
The billionaire has 4 children and Fewa is the last of them all while Olawunmi Christy is the firstborn.
Born on the 2nd of June, 2001, Fewa is currently 19 years old.
Fewa is autistic
Being the son of one of Africa’s most successful businessmen, one would expect Fewa Otedola to be a highly popular figure by now. However, he suffers from a developmental disorder popularly known as autism.
Autism is characterised by difficulties with social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior.
People with autism most times need the love and care of persons around them to do certain things.
Fewa enjoys the love of his sisters and parents, and one can easily tell from the passionate message they share on social media and the way Tolani came out to defend him when a blog described him using an ‘insensitive language’.
Temi Otedola talks about how Fewa is coping with autism
Temi Otedola who wrote about her brother on April 2nd, 2017 (World Autism Awareness Day), revealed that Fewa needed steady care.
“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’, Temi wrote on her JTO fashion blog.
“The role of an older sister always entails some sort of responsibility. However, the role of an older sister to an autistic sibling is a great deal more work. At first, it seemed like every day with him was a challenge, especially for my mother,” she continued.
“I remember seeing my mum helping Fewa with simple tasks like brushing his teeth, helping him to get dressed, or feeding him lunch, with each day ultimately ending in exhaustion. Our family has been so blessed to have help from carers, but no one can deny the resilience my mother has had raising Fewa. It is the thing I most respect about her.
She added that he is becoming less dependent as of 2017, and their relationship was increasingly becoming ‘less one-sided’.
Furthermore, she went on to say that he shouldn’t be pitied because he “is the most genuine and caring person” she knows. And it is the purest form of “unconditional love” she saw in him that shaped her into the person she is.
Is he dating or married?
We’ve seen many people show interest in his relationship status, most especially ladies. Why not? I mean, the young man is very attractive. Moreover, he is the heirs to the Otedola fortune.
He is certainly not married. However, it is not clear if he is in any relationship. Most things about him are not known to the public. Therefore, he could be in a relationship without anyone knowing.
