When asked ''How did he (Yemi Osinbajo) come about marrying Awolowo’s granddaughter?'', the younger brother said, ''That’s another interesting and prophetic thing because when we were all younger, there was a time we were all worshipping in the same sanctuary in Ikenne. And Papa Awolowo who is found of sitting in first row and my own parents would sit in the next row behind him. And one day we were all coming; you know during the Christmas we have thanksgiving. We the children, when it was time for thanksgiving, we were all asked to come out for thanksgiving. So, when we were coming back, because we four boys, all dressed in suit, and as teenagers we were all dancing, looked very gorgeous, and likewise the girls. Papa stood up and faced our parents and said one of the boys should marry one of his girls (that’s granddaughters) And Mama said that can’t happen. But Papa said in Israel cousins do marry.
