Meet the Tallest Man in Nigeria.

The tallest man in Nigeria is a Yoruba man named Afeez Agoro Oladimeji who is based in Lagos. Standing at a massive 7 feet and 4 inches, Afeez captures attention everywhere he goes, unsurprisingly.  

 He was born on the 13th of December, 1975 and he is currently 45 years old. The surprising part of Agoro's tallness is that it started when he was 19 years old. When he was in Secondary school, he had a normal height because according to him, he was not one of the tallest students in his school. His tallness is due to an unknown medical condition which started when he started falling sick at age nineteen. 

 According to him, he fell sick a couple of times and that was when he noticed that he had started growing abnormally taller than his age mates. His father who is now late, took him to the hospital for examination in expectance for a possible diagnosis but the doctors ruled out any sickness and they said he was fine.

 However, one of the major challenges he faces is the occasional stigmatisation and the restrictions in movements. He finds it difficult to board taxis because of the small sizes of the vehicles and always bends to enter houses with low door frames. 

 He is into modelling and acting.
