Jamiu became blind as a result of fracas he had with some hoodlums at his village. The incident happened in 2004 and attracted attention of the then governor, Dr Bukola Saraki, who paid his medical expenses. According to the Kwara Tabloid Team Jamiu, a drummer, needs further assistance for him to live a meaningful life. That was the motivation for presenting him before the gathering. Jamiu briefly displayed his dexterity with the talking drum to the admiration of the guests at the occasion. Such personalities includes Alh. Raheem Adedoyin, Mr. Mosud Adebimpe former CPS, Mr Lanre Issa-Onilu CEO MMCC Group, Mr Jide Fashikun of Gongnews, Mr Taofik Abdulkareem of Plat Technologies among others.
