I AM EMPEROR TELU1 AND I’M GREATER THAN ALL MY FOREFATHERS!
I am, I should and I must be greater than my Fathers and Forefathers from Oduduwa, Obatala,Orunmila, Ogun,Sango, Awolowo etcetera because if I’m not greater than them as their offspring then it means all of us and incoming Generations are failures…

I am greater than all the names mentioned above and that’s why my Children as well must be Greater than me!!!
This is the dreams and aspirations of our fathers and Forefathers.
