    Photograph: Baba Oloye (The BFHS' Legend)

  • DavidL, I don't know yet. But we should look for someone who was a true BFHS "ACCUSed" to Baba Oloye to give that title. Guys, we should continue looking for Baba Oloye's photograph for posting on the website. One of the BFHS legends' photograph must be somewhere.

    What do you guys think?

  • When are you guys going to vote for your "Chief ACCUSed"?

  • Ras T, kindly inform Toksy B that I miss his jibes and vibes on Ofege, Float and Grandmaster Flash. Those good old days when we used to rehearse songs in Form 3c together with Segun Oduntan on drums (class tables).   Toksy B the snake killer. Can you recollect that episode on the corridors of Woodwork/ Art Block? I stand ACCUSSED alongside Toks, Fash, Segelu & Emilo John (Kehinde Ajibolade. Vintage Fash is on its way to the bookstand before the end of the year. Watch Out!!!  

  • Thanks for the invitation Mr Ras David Tunde Lowo (SAL).

    Yes I remember Baba Oloye, I was not that notorious to catch his attention in those days. However, I had some Prefects who used to protect me or should I say have mercy when I got in trouble and two of them were the Osinowo twines. I still remember serving punishment in their class one morning and they let me off after talking to the Prefect who asked me to kneel in front of their class. When we used to scale the school fence to get into the school after arriving late in school (late comers) and been matched to the assembly hall for our punishment. Some of us used to escape from the line while the Prefects will give a chase. I later became the Chapel Prefect in my final year. I was in the SU (Scripture Union).

    Baba Oloye was dealing with bigger fishes, in those days.

  • Funmilayo Olaniyi Emmanuel may God bless you. Your father served the school with all his might! Could you please update us about our dear Baba Oloye ( your father).

  • Hello Foluso. My memory failed me this time around. Either way, it is a pleasure to have him on board.
  • Ladi/Taiwo/DavidL,

    Do you guys know that Baba Oloye's son (Funmilayo Olaniyi Emmanuel) is now on board BIFOBA? He joined yesterday Monday, October 10, 2011. You guys now have an authority on board to ask about all what you want to know about Baba Oloye , the legend.

    I will invite him to join the group of "Birch Freeman ACCUSed": It's all about a group of short, snappy stories about his father regaled by some of us who admired his father's roles and impacts in our lives during our days at Akobi Crescent.

    I will yell at you guys soon again..
  • Thank God Lado finally engraved his name on the ACCUSed's list! I am sure Baba Oloye will be very proud of you!
    I still believe we would have beaten the likes of Igbobi, Fimbarrs, Gregs, Baptist Academy etc with Baba Oloye in old team. He would have bullied and intimidated the opposition.
    Who was the biggest 'Accused' of all times?
  • Taiwo, you'll be glad to see that I finally joined up as requested. You guys are so funny. Baba Oloye playing for the school? The man was probably in his 50's at the time. Yes he had big yam tubers for calves, but if he attempted playing football at that time, he would have died. If he's alive now, he must be at least 85 years old. His son (an exact copy) was called Funlayo or something like that.

    Seriously though, does anyone remember Omo (Mr Umoh) the nightwatchman?

    If you were in Birch at the same time as Baba Oloye and Omo and were never called "AKOOSE" or chased by Omo from the football pitch after prep, then you must have been a phantom. Even very good boys like Tunde Joda had their moments. Boys (or shall I say men) like Clegg must have experienced that everyday. He (Clegg) was like New York. He liked school so much he stayed in each year twice. Maybe he loved Baba Oloye. He looked like him in a way.

    Pappy Oloye was a legend
