Meet high profile female Nigerian engineer, Funmilayo Waheed-Adekojo with exceptional singing talent

ENGR. DR. MRS. Funmilayo Waheed-Adekojo (FNSE, FIMS UK, FIMC, FNIMechE, FCP, CMC, CPO, COREN, PMP) was born in Arigidi Akoko, Ondo State on the 27th May, 1983.

Funmilayo is a Doctor of Science in Project Management, Engineering and Cooperate Governance.

She holds another Doctor of Science in Public Administration.

With a robust portfolio and a very busy lifestyle, managing her engineering company amongst other businesses, the energetic female engineer leaves one to wonder how she finds time for music.

In October 2021, Funmilayo launched a record label, and went on to sign three artistes namely Victory Patrick Omonaye a.k.a Omohsoke; Chibuike Timothy Onwuka a.k.a Timsingz; and Bamiduro Oluwayemisi Odunayo a.k.a Conffyghold.

Let’s sample some of her songs.

Beyond music and engineering, in May 2021, the Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS) Youth Council (EYC) awarded Funmilayo the Nelson Mandela Leadership Award of Excellence and Integrity as a ‘Distinguished African Icon of Societal Development’.
