Native to Surulere, Lagos, Dayo is the firstborn child of her parents, who went on to have four more. Her mother, Abiola, is a successful entrepreneur, while her dad, Kolawole Rasheed, has worked as a technician prior to his retirement a couple of years back. To this day, the actress remains close with her parents, supporting them financially and being grateful for their life advice.
The first school that Dayo went to was the Kenny-Tee Primary School in her hometown. Amusa got her Junior Secondary education at Mayflower Secondary School in Ogun State and continued her studies at Mamak Secondary School to obtain her senior secondary school certificate. She is not only a smart actress, but a great cook as well, as she has a degree in Food Science which she got at the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic.
Dayo Amusa continues to play a significant role in upholding the Nigerian education system. She currently holds the position of proprietress in two schools. One of them is located in Ibadan and the other one is in her native state of Lagos.
The actress is currently single but has given birth to a beautiful little girl that was conceived out of wedlock. There have been rumors here and there, but there’s no concrete information about who Dayo’s baby daddy is. Her daughter is grown up now and ready to follow her mother’s footsteps.
Other than her family, Dayo says that one of her primary sources of inspiration and greatest joys in life is traveling. She has visited countries all around the world and often times goes on trips with her mother and daughter.
