The founder of Nairaland, Oluwaseun Temitope Osewa was born in Western part of Nigeria, Sango Otta in Ogun state. He still lives in that area and probably will continue to live there for years still to come. He is best know for founding Nairaland and has choose to remain off the camera and limelight for years.
Seun Osewa attended Obafemi Awolowo University(OAU)formerly named University of Ile Ife to study electrical engineering but dropped out some years after to focus on internet business at that time. It no surprise Seun dropped out of school because great inventor like Mark Zukerberg and Bill Gates also dropped out school respectively.
With all the achievements on Nairaland, Seun Osewa can rightly be referred to as a person overly intellectual, obsessive, or lacking social skills (introvert) an exact opposite of Linda Ikeji.
Seun was born into a Christian family but now identifies himself as an Atheist.
No one can confirm if Seun Osewa is married or not but according to information on the public domain, Seun is never married and has no child.
His Business Interest
The founder of Nairaland started his experiment for Nairaland between 2003 and 2005 when he created three forums, one of them was meant for students of higher educational institutions, the second one was for IT discussions, and the third one, Mobile Nigeria, was meant to cover the GSM industry that was emerging in Nigeria then. The latter turned out to be Nairaland the biggest forum in Africa. The forum currently has almost 2million registered members and still counting.
Nairaland success didn’t come easy as Seun had to wade off spammers and trolls on the forum on a daily basis. Eventually in 2014, Nairaland suffered a malicious hacker attack, which disabled the site for several days and deleted all the data. In 2012, he also lost Google Adsense revenue due to sexual topics discussed on Nairaland and ever since he has been selling ads space on its forum.
According to our calculations based on valuations on Nairaland and ad space, Seun Osewa is worth $5Million.
