Born and raised in Ogunsowo Village in the Lagelu Local Govt Area of Ibadan, Oyo State of Nigeria to Chief Joseph Adigun and Madam Felicia Adunola Adigun.
I did all my Primary, Secondary and Technical Educations in Nigeria.
I worked in the Art industry for a while in Nigeria.
I started travelling and promoting Nigerian and Afrikan Culture abroad in 1986 with Afrikan Heritage Troupe.
We travelled all over Europe and Russia and finally came to America in 1989 with Oduchiala Dance Troupe. A few years later I co-founded Bi-Okoto.
