Among the most influential people in society, the names Wale Adenuga and Mike Adenuga have always been on the lips of many Nigerians, mostly because of the accomplishments of these men.
Michael Adenuga Jr is known to be the third richest person in Africa. In Nigeria, he is known as the owner of Globacom, a popular telecommunications company in the country and West Africa.
Wale Adenuga, on the other hand, is a series producer and the owner of Wale Adenuga Production (WAP). This company has released popular publications like Ikebe Super, Binta and Friends, and Super Story to viewers across the world.
Surely these two men have accomplished great things in their lives, but are they related in any way?
Is Wale Adenuga Related to Mike Adenuga?
No, Wale Adenuga and Mike Adenuga are not related. No evidence shows that they are related other than having the same name.
These two men were born to different parents. Mike Adenuga’s father is Oloye Michael Agbolade Adenuga Sr. and was a schoolteacher, while his mother, Omoba Juliana Oyindamola Adenuga, was a businesswoman.
Wale Adenuga’s parents were not mentioned in his bio, but we know he was raised in Ibadan and attended the Ibadan City Academy before proceeding to King’s College, Lagos, for his higher school certificate.
Mike Adenuga received his secondary school education at Ibadan Grammar School, which is also located in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Although they both studied in Ibadan, there is no proof that they attended the same schools or had the same siblings.
The surname, Adénúgà is a popular name among individuals who reside in the Yoruba-speaking states of Nigeria. Since this name is not limited to being answered by only one family, different people who are not related can have the same name.
There is no valid evidence that states the businessmen, Wale Adenuga and Mike Adenuga are related.
