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).
