Ola moved to Canada with the intention of creating a new and improved life for himself, never dreaming he would be where he is today. When Ola came out as an open bisexual, coming from a Nigerian religious background, Ola found it very difficult and felt very ostracized. This led him down a dark path to depression and various suicide attempts. Nevertheless, Ola’s family has been a source of positive reinforcement for loving him just as he is.
After achieving influencer and model status (+14k Followers) in 2018, Ola found a new passion to use his platform (Instagram: @Olagbad). By raising awareness and encouraging men to feel more comfortable in their own skin, he hopes to continue inspiring people. In Ola’s life, empowerment, positivity, and mental health awareness are all significant topics. Currently, Ola is one of the brand ambassadors for a skincare company called Bisc Cosmetics.
Ola’s story is one the most inspiring ones I’ve seen and it really solidifies him as an actual influencer instead of a superficial one.
Ola is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. He is kind and considerate while always willing to help a friend anytime. If modelling was solely based on character Ola wins first place every time.
Chase your true dreams and be happy
