Odunlade is running OAFP, standing for Odunlade Adekola Film Production and his latest product is Adebayo Aremu Abere. Not just that, the actor is also involved in Nigerian music industry though the result is not as remarkable as in Nollywood.

Just a quick review to see how much you know about our renowned actor before seeing luxury Odunlade Adekola cars and tracing where all his money comes from!

Odunlade Adekola state of origin

Odunlade Adekola was born on December 31, 1978 in Abeokuta, Ogun, Nigeria. However, his parents originally came from Otun Ekiti in Ekiti State.

He attended St John’s Primary School, St.Peter’s College and then Moshood Abiola Polytechnic in Ogun state. Odunlade has also completed Business Administration in the University of Lagos.

Is Odunlade Adekola married?

Of course yes. What are you expecting? He’s forty and had four children already.

There’s rumor recently that Odunlade had dated Kemi Afolabi and made her pregnant. However, both sides have denied this and the actress is already married to Wale Adesipe.

Odunlade Adekola wife

Odunlade Adekola has a happy family with Ruth Dekola who also graduated from Moshood Abiola Polytechnic in his hometown. The couple met at a night vigil in 1995 and decided to get married just few months later.


Ruth and Odunlade loved each other at first sight

Ruth Adekola was born on 2nd November in Ekiti. She is an amicable and caring person who quietly supports her husband’s career.

Odunlade Adekola children

Odunlade and Ruth have 4 lovely boys. The third one was born in 2013 while the last child came to the world in November, 2015 at an Abeokuta private hospital.

Sharing with interviewers, Odunlade said his boys also wanted to become actors like him. It’s reasonable when they’ve got a role model as Odunlade and Naijauto believes we would see these young boys soon in Yoruba movies.

Odunlade’s children surely inherit his acting gift

2. Odunlade Adekola cars

Odunlade Adekola latest car

Odunlade Adekola latest car is a Land Rover Range Rover Sport which he bought a few years ago.

The brand new car cost up to $112,000, equivalent to nearly 41 million Nigerian nairas. Our source also reported that this Range Rover Sport was the most favored car of the actor.

Simply, it’s the most modern and he must really love it when spending such amount of money for this.

Do you think the Range Rover really fits his athletic figure?

To suit his updated taste and catch up with changing trend, Odunlade Adekola often changed the painting color of the car. Fans may see him sometimes ride in the red Jeep while the others can spot the black Range Rover as in this photo!

Besides the newly acquired Range Rover Sport, Odunlade Adekola also owns a Toyota Camry for daily travel. He often drives this automobile to scheduled meetings with friends and colleagues.

It seems like this actor has assigned clear-cut roles for his vehicles: which one for showing off and which one for his daily transport.

Actually, how many cars he has other than these 2 remains a question as this actor doesn’t like boasting about his stuff. Below is one of the rare photos of Odunlade Adekola alongside exotic automobiles paparazzi managed to catch:


Odunlade is quite reserved about his expensive life

He however has been spotted being intimate with the beautiful actress Biodun Okeowo at the rear end of a Hyundai. Rumour has it that they shared a ride together to an unknown venue before showing up at the movie set titled Eji Owuro. 


3. Odunlade Adekola houses

Odunlade Adekola family is living in the Government Reserved Area of Abeokuta, inside a huge mansion without curious sights from others. The family hardly reveals pictures of their houses as well as avoid unnecessary gossips, so you can’t find much around this villa.

Till now, no photos inside the luxurious building are leaked out but you can try imagining the hi-class interiors based on the outer appearance.

However, a close person with Odunlade shared with us that this mansion cost him around ₦ 20 million, not mention the price he paid to decorate it.

Other than this secret mansion, Odunlade also has an impressive-enough house in crowded Lagos, and its price is no less than his other accommodation.

4. Odunlade Adekola hotel – the lucrative business

Back to our main question in the title, where does Odunlade Adekola earn that much money? Is it from his acting fees or revenues of new film he produced?

Maybe, those sources absolutely generate a considerable amount of income for the experienced actor but the acting fees for one movie might take the whole year to be paid, depending on the time of movie completion. Similarly, the revenue of his produced film may sound enormous but do you know how many kinds of expenses he has to pay for?

So where his money truly mainly comes from? – His business. In this case, his hotel in Abeokuta and a barbershop nearby.

To construct and operate the hotel, Odunlade has spent up to ₦50 million but the money he gets from customers daily can totally compensate for that investment.
