Siju Olawepo nine years old primary five students was discovered at Carol School in Lagos. He is a calendar genius who knows the day for any date supplied to him, as far back as some century. This nine-year-old calender genius provides the same day to any date he is given almost faster than an internet search engine. This natural ability was first discovered by one of his computer instructor, who observed that he was always demanding for plain sheets to design calendars.

Siju Later saw creating calendars for the future without the aid of any existing one. Nine-year-old Siju Olawepo, like a fortune-teller, once given him a date, can tell the matching day of the week. In addition to knowing the dates, he also doesn’t forget any date he knows. He can tell anybody the particular day of the week he/she was born. Within seconds, he told the reporters that Nigeria would be 100 years on Friday, October 1, 2060. He was also swift to say it would be a leap year.
When asked how he came about knowing days with their corresponding dates, the response was, “I just know it. My instinct tells me dates with the corresponding days. It comes naturally to me, and I cannot explain how.” Information gathered from Siju’s computer teacher, Mr. David Ugiomoh, that what the boy enjoys doing most is designing calendars. “He was always coming to my office to ask for plain sheets for designing calendars. I and others in the school initially thought he was copying from an existing calendar until the day he came to my office to design a calendar for the year 2023. When I checked the dates on my phone, I saw that they were all correct,” “Then I started asking him days for different dates, and he was answering correctly. I also asked him for the day to my birthday, which he provided seamlessly. I was baffled and discovered he was a genius,” he explained. Siju said his future ambition is to become a horticulturist and will plant varieties of flowers.
