Some use calculators to solve basic math problems, some need pen and paper, some use their minds but then, it takes a while and then there is Tella Omojolade, a living, walking, breathing calculator.
In this interview, Omojolade, tells us how he became very good and fast with calculations. He recounted how in primary six, he was supplying his mathematics teacher, who was solving a problem on the board with answers. He got N10 for his efforts.
This continued when he got admission into University and he told his friend about it. His shocked friend tested his ability to confirm for himself and then started telling people about him.
Omojolade, added that although it was rough financially at first, he has monetised his ability and people invite him to perform at their events.

Omojolade’s mother, Florence Olaleye, revealed that it is indeed a miracle as she can’t explain how her son came about his gift from when he was eight years old. She said that even while he sleeps he talks numbers.
