Her Early years
Tayo was born on December 28, 1985 – which makes her 36 this year.
She was born to a bi-religious union of a Muslim mother, and a Christian father, which made her refer to herself as a ‘chrislim’ if there is ever such a word.
Tayo says she lived with her mother who was overprotective of her and kept her mostly indoors; she was restricted from visiting relatives and other outdoor activities. Her mum was so stringent that she was nicknamed ‘Thatcher’.
To young Tayo, all these were acts of wickedness, but as she grew into adulthood, she realised how her mother’s strict training helped her character development.
She attended the Lagos state university where she earned a diploma in Law and furthered her education at Olabisi Onabanjo University, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Public Administration.
