“Whew! I did that. “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.” Thank you to everyone who has supported me, encouraged me, and motivated me to make it this far. Every experience I’ve had, good and bad, has contributed to my development as a successful student and individual,” he said in a celebratory post in 2019.

‘’It’s been an amazing journey, and I’m proud to say that I graduated from my high school, Elite Scholars Academy, as valedictorian with a 4.77 GPA and a full-ride scholarship to MIT. Moving on is bittersweet, but I’m excited to explore the next chapter of my life. Expect great things’’, he added.

Ololade is the son of MC Oluomo, a popular Nigerian Chief. In 2023, after the graduation of Ololade from MIT, Oluomo took to his Instagram page to congratulate his son. He praised him for graduating from one of the highly-ranked universities globally with a double major and for maintaining a 4.20 GPA.
