- A Nigerian man, Adeboye Taiwo, clocked 50 on 24 April
- The celebrant’s family made the news in 2017 when they delivered a set of sextuplets after waiting for 17 years to have children
- Friends celebrated the man and his large family on social media as he marked his birthday
In Nigeria, having children is very important and the lack of any kids sometimes leads to embarrassing situations for the couple when extended family members start to hound them.
In some cases, the husband is urged to take a new wife who will bear children, but some men have been able to ignore all these and stick with their wives in good and bad times.
Rather than give birth to just ond child, they welcomed six at once. As it is common with multiple births, there is a chance that not all the children will survive. But two years after, the sextuplets are doing fine.
Adeboye Taiwo, the father of the kids, clocked 50 on 24 April and to celebrate him, well-wishers shared amazing photos of his large family on social media.
See photos of the celebrant, his wife and kids below:
Happy 50th birthday to Mr Adeboye Taiwo. God has blessed him with a beautiful family.
