Mama’s mum,
late Mama Wuraola Ajiboye was famous
for her Adire fabrics which are said to be original, sold across Ilesa and other towns in the 40s, 50s
and 60s. It is alleged that her grand daughter, Princess Bunmi Jegede took after Mama Wuraola in the area
of fabric merchandising. However, Princess
