Three-year-old star of epic photobomb ‘was abandoned by his mother’

  • Remember the audacious, charming little boy who photobombed himself to social media glory?

Michael Tayo, the photographer who discovered him, says he was abandoned by his mother weeks after he was born.

The boy’s name, he said, is Oluwatobiloba Falana and he is three years old.
Nigerians have been interested in little Falana since the picture of him photobombing a traditional wedding shot went viral.
Ever since many questions have been asked about his background and family.
To sate the inquisitiveness of Nigerians, the photographer shared his story in an Instagram post.
“He is three years old and a product of failed marriage. According to his father, the boy was abandoned by his mother when he was barely a month old. His father, unable to cater for the boy, sought for a nanny who works in a daycare center, to take custody of the boy,” he wrote in part.
“The nanny has been taken care of the boy since then. Though the father is a graduate of Electrical Engineering, he is jobless.
“Though Oluwatobiloba has never seen the four walls of a school, he has a good command of English language considering his age. He speaks and understand English Language.
“The father is appealing to well-meaning Nigerians to assists in educating the boy who is passionate, bold and intelligent.
“Friends, let’s make help in unleashing the potentials of this young boy. Yes, we can.”

After the epic photo went viral, a commenter tagged it “the best photobomb ever”.
