Meet ''Oluwatunmise Idowu'' - The 14 year Old Maths Whiz Kid

Oluwatunmise Idowu, is a 14 year old student of Scholars Universal Secondary School, Ota, Ogun State. She became famous last year 2016 when she broke the record of 15 answered questions in 60 seconds set in 2015 by Ayodeji Akinkuowo of Adeyemi Demonstration College, Ondo State in the Cowbellpedia Mathematics Television.


Idowu, the daughter of a Mathematics teacher, slugged it out in Group B with Ayomide Nafisat Abdulwaheed, a JSS 3 female student of Reality High School, Osogbo, Osun State; Olajide Osoba of Atlantic Hall, Epe, Lagos State; Edidiong Okon of Topfaith International Secondary School, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State; Charles Adesoba of Petoa City College, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State and Vanessa Ibol of NOWA Secondary School, New Kashi, Nassarawa State.

Osoba, the only male contestant in the group crashed out after the first round to pave way for an all-female encounter in the second round. This involved a test of contestants’ speed and accuracy as they were required to answer as many questions as possible in 60 seconds. Idowu in ‘battle’ with Abduwaheed and Okon, eventually answered 17 questions in 60 Seconds to beat the record of 15/60 seconds set in 2015 by Ayodeji Akinkuowo of Adeyemi Demonstration College, Ondo State.
