Dad was danfo driver, mom a cleaner in my school -Chess master Tunde Onakoya

Guinness World Records breaker and Chess Master Tunde Onakoya has provided insights into his background.

Earlier during his GWR endeavour, he had disclosed that it was his love of chess that had paved the way for the opportunity to travel out of Nigeria for the first time.

He also revealed that his parents didn’t understand his pursuit of chess, though they supported him nevertheless.

And on Saturday, the chess sensation shared a heart-warming news on his X handle.

Tunde had tweeted: “Someone gifted my parents a new house today. It’s the single greatest thing anyone will ever do for me in this lifetime. Thank you

“My mother worked as a cleaner in the same school I attended so I could get an education, while my dad worked as a Danfo driver/bus conductor so we could feed and survive.

“My greatest joy in life is to be able to give them both the life they truly deserve.”
