Early Life and Education
Adebola Williams was born on March 7, 1986, “from an affluent household, but his family lost everything when he was 10 so he had to suffer.” Williams wanted to be an actor when he was just a teenager, and his first acting gig only earned him 50 cents.
Without any appropriate training, he began working as a freelance assistant for a counsellor and a psychologist by the time he had accumulated three years of valuable experience with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).
