His Growth Spurt Began At Age 19

As previously stated, Afeez Agoro was a normal child when he was born, and nothing indicated that he would grow into a giant. In fact, during his pre-teen and early teenage years, he was not even among the tallest children. In a 2019 interview with The Nation Newspaper, Agoro revealed that he was not the tallest boy in his secondary school. He was just a regular youngster with a regular height.

However, after completing secondary school and reaching the age of 19, he began to become ill. Everyone was perplexed by the illness, which caused him to grow taller. During that time, he became ill several times and continued to grow in height rapidly. He was soon taller than everyone in his neighborhood due to his rapid development. People who knew him were taken aback, especially those who hadn’t seen him in a long time before his illness. Some of his secondary school classmates who hadn’t seen him in years after graduation were taken aback when they finally saw him after his growth spurt, he told The Nation.

When Agoro’s growth spurt began, along with his strange illness, his father was concerned for his son’s safety because the situation was unusual. As a result, he took the boy to various hospitals, but physicians said they couldn’t see anything wrong with him. Afeez, on the other hand, continued to grow taller, which concerned his parents. All medical attempts to curb his unusual growth failed, and he became the tallest person his friends, family, and neighbors had ever seen. He is currently 7 feet 4 inches tall, making him the unofficial title holder of Nigeria’s tallest man.

His Father Built A House To Accommodate His Height

Afeez Agoro and his father had a good relationship, until he died in 2005. The older Agoro, on the other hand, built a house that could accommodate his son, despite his unique height, before he died. Afeez remarked that his father’s decision to build the house to accommodate his height helped him a lot throughout the years.

Afeez Agoro’s mother chose to pursue medical reasons for his extraordinary height and condition after his father died. She took him to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for a medical examination. There was nothing to be seen. Years later, when Afeez visited the United States, he discovered what was wrong with him. According to him, after the physicians checked him and the findings came back, it was discovered that he had been diagnosed with acromegaly. Acromegaly, often known as gigantism, is a disorder that causes people to grow abnormally.

Doctors gave Afeez Agoro a medicine that could help him stop any future growth, according to Afeez Agoro. However, it was ineffective.
