Akanmu Olusanya Daniel was born on 15th September 1996 to the family of Mr & Mrs Kayode Akanmu of Ajigbaagun Compound, Iwo at Victory Hospital, Iwo, Osun State, Nigeria. He’s a member of a family of four.

Early Life & Education

Due to different reasons, he astonishingly had his primary and secondary education in 5 different schools.
He started his formal education at Our Lady of Fatimah Nursery and Primary School where he had his pre-nursery and nursery education. He then moved to Ebenezer Baptist Nursery and Primary school where he studied until primary 3 .His parents migrated to Ibadan, Oyo State in January 2004 so he inevitably had to move to Olufunmilayo Nursery and Primary School where he completed his primary school education.
He then proceeded to Henry Alex-Duduyemi Memorial College, Ile-Ife as a boarding student. In September 2008 , he moved to Providence High School ,Ibadan where he completed his secondary school education.

Undergraduate Years:

Before he eventually got admitted into an higher institution of learning, he suffered a one year delay in formal education. This was because he had a Post UTME score of 167 out of 400 , a reality check for someone who prior that time never (or even imagined himself) failing an examination.
In November 2012, He enrolled for Obafemi Awolowo University’s Pre-Degree programme at their Centre for Distance Learning situated in Moro, Osun State. With an aggregate score of 76.0 at the end of the programme, he got admitted into the University’s Faculty of Pharmacy.
However, due to an unpalatable alloy of ASUU , NASUU and SU strike actions, he would not resume his formal education until August 24, 2014. That hiatus was utilized by him to acquire some basic computer programming skills
He made it through the much dreaded Great Ife Pharmacy school and got inducted on May 7, 2019

Extracurricular Activities:

Although life in Ife was mostly about Pharmacy, he still participated in a number of non-academic activities.
He joined Drug Free Club OAU , a nonprofit organisation involved in the fight against drug abuse amongst youths in his 2nd year. He was the Public Relations Officer in the 2016/2017 session and eventually became the President in 2017/2018 session.

He was also involved in other Pharmaceutical Association Of Nigerian Students(PANS) activities where most notably he served in the National Electoral Committee in the 2015/2016 session. He was also a Student delegate at the PANS National Convention at OAU in 2017 and PSN Conference at Oluyole, Ibadan in 2019
He served briefly in the Students’ Union(SU) as an Ad-hoc Electoral Staff under Commissioner Adeyemi Yusuff in the 2015/2016 SU Election.


During his undergraduate years, he was an IT Pharmacy Student at Akol Pharmacy , Osogbo and Demoon Pharmacy, Ile-Ife .
Upon graduating, he has worked in the following pharmacies as a Locum Pharmacist

  1. Lovemax Pharmacy, Ibadan
  2. Obeki Clinical Pharmacy, Ibadan
  3. Astranad Pharmacy, Lagos

He is currently interning at Federal Neuropsychiatry Hospital Yaba, Lagos where he started November 1 2019

Personal Life & Philosophy:

Born and raised by two civil servants , he understood early enough the essence of virtues like diligence, integrity, faith and loyalty.
He considers his cool and genial nature the reason why he has quite a number of people he can call friends
He is a Christian and believes in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ
He supports Chelsea Football Club and deeply thinks pounded yam and vegetable soup is a regular menu in heaven.

Ambitions & Aspirations:

When he was much younger, he wanted to be a lawyer, pilot, banker and doctor all at once. He would later come to terms with the unreality of his outlandish dream and his love for the Aero space crashed with the Sosoliso Airline in December 2005, so Law was the natural choice as his best subjects in primary school were English language and Social Studies.
However, he succumbed to peer pressure and influence of a few teachers who believed the smartest students in the class were to be science class. So when he was to choose a course of study amongst the sciences, pharmacy came partly because of his brilliant cousin who was studying Pharmacy in the University at that time
Therefore he believes much of his romance with Pharmacy and drugs owed to Providence.
He aspires to be a renowned community pharmacist and has keen interests in public health and real estate.


He loves and is inspired by the world of art so he deeply enjoys music, literature, photography and all sorts of painting
He feels he is addicted to quality music and believes a playlist is incomplete without an Asa , Brymo or Adekunle Gold.

MISTIRAL; be remembered.
