FG2BH Influential Buzz: Paula & Peter Imafidon

March 7, 2010

The nine-year-old London-born Nigerian Imafidon fraternal twins made WORLD history when they became the youngest to be admitted to secondary school (re: high school).

Peter Paula Imafidon

They are from northeast London born to Nigerian-born parents who immigrated from Nigerian 30 years ago. Being smart runs in the family because their older sisters Samantha, 12, and Christiana, 17, also broke educational exam records. At age 11 Christiana was the youngest to study at undergraduate level at any British university, reports Times. At age 6 Samantha passed her maths and statistics GSCeS exam, reports Times.

It’s quite easy to see why FG2BH made the Imafidon fraternal twins today’s influential buzz. Check out this interview that the Imafidon family did on GMTV
