Welcome to ADEDAMOLA SALAKO RELOADED. Thank you for loading and running this latest edition of my website. If you saw my debut site, I would like to thank you for your patronage, comments, critiques and suggestions. I do apologise for taking this long to bring you this revamp of ADEDAMOLA SALAKO'S WEB DEBUT. This much awaited  redesign showcases concepts I have picked up over the past few years. By popular demand, this site is still largely a photo gallery with over 960 photographs; Pictures say a lot more than words! The remaining content hasn't changed much. As I said in the first edition: please sign the guest book, your appraisals are invaluable; My curriculum vitae is posted for prospective employers; I have listed URLs of useful Internet tools and links to sites with similar interests as mine; The research page shares technical information of my Telecoms & IT dissertation.  It is fervently hoped that you find this site highly edifying and worth your while. In the opposite column is my updated autobiography. I have carried over this feature into this sequel because many have testified to being blessed and inspired by this and my CV.

¬ About Me

By now you would have guessed that this is a personal web portal titled after my name. I was born in the mid-seventies in the city of Lagos, Nigeria. I am the second of my parents' three children. I grew up in Ikeja, Lagos where I attended nursery & primary school at Maryland Convent Private School, Ikeja (Class of 1987). I then proceeded to Maryland Comprehensive Secondary School, Ikeja, from which I transferred during the second year, to Command Day Secondary School, Ikeja (Class of 1993). Immediately after high school, I gained admission into Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria to study for a BSc degree in Electronics & Electrical Engineering (Matric. 1993). Again, half way through the second year, I left Nigeria to reside permanently in the UK in January 1997. By September 1997 I restarted a "thick sandwich" four-year degree course, BEng (Hon) Electrical & Electronic Engineering, at South Bank University, London. For the third year of the degree, I worked as a sandwich year industrial placement in the Electronic Design department of TRW Aeronautical Systems - Lucas Aerospace (now Goodrich Electronic Engine Controls), York Road., Birmingham, UK. I graduated in June 2001 and later that September I started an EPSRC funded Research Masters (MRes) in Telecommunications at University College London. I am a Member of the Institution of Electrical Engineers (MIEE).


I met Tosin in February 1997 and we got married on the 19th of April 2003 after 5 years of courtship. We are blessed with two beautiful daughters, Oreoluwa and Tirenioluwa.


I love listening to gospel music. I am not very athletic and I love the peace and tranquillity indoors. Socially, I engage in a bit of swimming, soccer, bowling, snooker and pool. Once in a while, I play computer games, chess and scrabble. I think I like movies too. Most of my leisure is spent creating & maintaining websites and surfing the Internet. I am also interested in static and animated graphics design.


I am a Christian worshipping with The London Lighthouse parish of House on the Rock church. While at Birmingham, I fellowshipped with the River of Life Ministry. Moving to the UK has given me a totally different perspective to life. It's like I have been given a second chance. I will always thank God for saving me through Christ, Jesus. I would like to use this medium to thank God for my life, my parents (Engr. & Mrs. Fola Salako) and my brother (Bola) and sister (Nike). Indeed, the Lord has been faithfully and graciously good to me!

Owing to change in ownership and management, this website is dedicated to the only love of my life, my wife, Oluwatosin.

To God be the glory!
