Adeyemi Huston’s Age is Uncertain

Very little is known about the early life of Adeyemi Huston, the skateboarder and celebrity dad. The name of his parents or siblings or any details as to his early life, family background, and educational history is not available. Adeyemi Huston only became a person of public interest after his son Nyjah Huston became famous.

However, there are reports that he was born in the 1970s. He has an American nationality but is of mixed ethnicity of Asian and African.

Adeyemi Huston was Married to a Lady Named Kelle

Available reports suggest that Adeyemi Huston had his tertiary education in California, USA, and during that time, he is said to have met a woman named Kelle – who would later become his wife. Details about how they met and how long they dated are not available to the public. However, they got married, and their union was blessed with five children. Four boys and a girl; Jahmai Huston, Kiade Huston, Ahbi Huston.

Unfortunately, things were not so smooth for the love birds, as Adeyemi Huston has been reported as being an over-controlling man. He raised his children in the Rastafarian way of life. They were even forced to become vegans and did not have the opportunity to go to regular schools like other children as they were homeschooled by their mother, Kelle.

In 2006, Adeyemi suddenly decided that his family was going to leave the United States and move to Puerto Rico. This decision did not go down well with members of the family, especially his son, Nyjah, whose skateboarding career was just about to pick up at that time.

And so, after several years of tolerating his overbearing attitude and watching the impact on their children, his wife Kelle filed for a divorce and moved back to California with three of the children – Jahmai, Kiade, and Ahbi – while Nyjah was left with his father. For a year, Nyjah did not get to see his mother until she was granted full custody of Nyjah, and he moved in with his mother.

Adeyemi Huston’s Son Has Become a Professional Skateboarder

The talented skateboarder Nyjah Huston is the biological son of Adeyemi Huston. He was born in the city of California on the 30th of November 1994. Hd is also the most famous of all Adeyemi’s kids and first gained recognition when he became a part of the Element Skateboarding team.

As a part of the team, he took part in several skating video productions and contests. Nyjah Huston featured in the Vans Downtown Showdown and Dew tour challenge, West 49 Canadian Open (street), Global Assault 2005, X-Games 12 Street Finals, Etnies Goofy vs Regular (Goofy Team), and Red Bull Hart Lines Contest, to mention but a few.

In 2009, he launched his own skateboard company called I&I despite being an amateur skater. Unfortunately, the company lasted for only about two years. During this time, the company was associated with Pan African colors like red, green, and yellow – a tribute to the Rastafari culture.

After I&I was dissolved, Nyjah Huston moved back to Element Skateboard. He also joined the DC Shoe company as a team rider. His career continued to blossom, and he featured in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and received several awards for his talent.

Adeyemi Huston Played a Major Role in Helping Nyjah Huston Build a Career in Skating

Adeyemi Huston is a skateboarder, and being a man who loves to force his world views and desire on his children and family, he made his sons start skating at a very early age. Nyjah Huston started skating as early as the age of five as Adeyemi Huston made his son skate every single day – whether he wanted to or not.

At the age of ten, he gifted his son an indoor skate park in Woodland, where he was expected to spend so much time practicing. Today, all the pressure has paid off, and his son has become a globally recognized skateboarder (who is the highest-paid skateboarder in the world). He even previously served as Nyjah’s manager and videographer.

Aside from working as his son, Nyjah Huston’s manager and videographer, we do not have details of any other job that Adeyemi Huston is involved in.

Adeyemi Huston is Estranged From His Son

Adeyemi Huston’s domineering personality may have helped Nyjah become a good skateboarder, but at some point, they fell out with each other. After Nyjah’s skateboard company failed and he returned to the Element Skateboards team, he revealed that his father’s overbearing attitude had caused an estrangement between both of them.

He could no longer deal with all the things he was forced to do, which caused them to sever ties. With this development, Adeyemi seized the videos of Nyjah skating and refused to release them. Nyjah has also cut his dreadlocks in defiance of his father as he no longer follows the strict Rastafarian lifestyle that Adeyemi forced on him. It has also been reported that hip-hop has become his favorite music genre.

Adeyemi Huston may not have been the best father, but he probably did the things he did because he loved his children. We cannot say for sure whether his other children have a rough relationship with him or not.

How Active is Nyjah Huston’s Dad on Social Media?

Adeyemi Huston is not active on any of the social media platforms. We also do not know if he later moved back from Puerto Rico to the USA. However, we know that his son Nyjah Huston lives in Laguna Beach, California.

The celebrity dad’s net worth is unknown as he tends to keep most of his business away from the public. He stays away from the eyes of the public, and we cannot tell how often he sees his children and what his relationship with, his ex-wife, Kelle, is like these days. He has also not been said to have remarried since his divorce from Kelle.
