n our society it’s very much unheard of for families to open up publicly about having close relatives suffering from special needs conditions like autism, however in honour of World Autism Day which was yesterday April 2, it has been revealed that billionaire Femi Otedola‘s son Fewa is autistic.
The revelation came via his fashion blogger daughter Temi who yesterday took to her blog to open up about how autism has affected herself and her family.
Speaking about the first time she found out her now 16 year old brother was autistic she wrote,
In 2004, my mum called my sisters and me into her bedroom. With the composure only a mother can have, she told us that our baby brother, Fewa, had ‘special needs’. While my sisters asked questions, all I could do was think about what this would mean for me, the already overindulged, youngest of three girls. Thankfully, my selfishness quickly wore off and Fewa quickly became the centre of our family.
