Narrating her career trajectory, Adebowale-David, popularly known as Lolo 1 and Adaku, recalled how her parents imposed Law on her. She said she was subsequently called to the Bar in 2000 after completing her undergraduate studies at the Lagos State University and went on to attend the Nigerian Law School. She practised for three years before switching to broadcasting in 2004 to follow her passion.

Adaku revealed to the JSS 3 students of African Church Grammar School, and Gateway Secondary School, Abeokuta, where Promasidor Nigeria Limited held the second edition of the initiative, that she had demonstrated the flair for broadcasting and entertainment in her formative years.

“When I was a child I loved radio. I loved novels. I loved television. My mum would tell me that I would stay before the television and I would act out everything they were doing. I would sing. I would dance. So, I don’t need anybody to tell me that this is where I am going to end up,” she told the excited students.

The artiste encouraged the students to discover what career path is suitable for each of them and not live according to the dictates of a group. She admonished: “You must answer for yourself individually. You must know what your strengths are. Whatever decision you make now is going to affect your future. Anything you set out to do, you must always strive to be the best in it. How will you feel if an Adaku that is supposed to be an Igbo woman speaks Ijebu? Is she a believable character?”

She commended Promasidor Nigeria for the career workshop and described it as a project that would aid students to pursue their dream effortlessly, even when their parents and the society seemed not to agree with their choices.

Adebowale-David recalled that her mother was not in agreement with her when she opted for the media and entertainment industry.

Speaking with reporters, Promasidor’s Head of Legal/PR, Mr. Andrew Enahoro said that Promasidor Harness Your Dream was one of the buckets of Corporate Social Responsibility projects of the company.

He assured other parts of the country that the project would soon get to them. “We will try to spread across the country by having at least one every term of the year. We already have two applications pending from different geo-political zones. The feedback from the students and the authorities has been encouraging. What we hear is, ‘where have you people been?’”

Promasidor Nigeria Limited, makers of Cowbell, Milk, Loya Milk, Onga, Top Tea and other quality brands, supports education and youth development, among other CSR interventions. The event held in Abeokuta was the second edition. The first, which was held at Oregun Junior High School, recorded tremendous success, with stakeholders in the education sector, including officials of the Lagos Ministry of Education, urging other corporate organisations to emulate the company.
