    Adapted from Wikipedia:

    Tanitoluwa is the son of Kayode Adewumi and Oluwatoyin Adewumi. Kayode used to run a print shop in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, with 13 employees, and Oluwatoyin used to work as an accountant.

    The family is devoutly Christian, and were threatened with violence by Boko Haram. In June 2017, they sought religious asylum in the United States. Philip Falayi, a pastor in Queens, New York, gave them temporary accommodation, and connected them with the NYC Department of Homeless Services. They were given a place to stay in a homeless shelter in Manhattan
