Sir Keshington was born on October 24, 1935, in Iperu Remo in present day Ikenne Local Government Area of Ogun State.

His father was a community leader named Alhaji Kerimu Folarin Adebutu and his mother to whom he learnt the act of trading was a business woman named late Alhaja Seliat Olasimbo Adebutu.

He attended the Wesley Primary School, Iperu Remo and completed his primary education at Ijero Baptist School, Ebute Metta, Lagos in 1950.

In January 1951, he was admitted to the popular Baptist Academy, Lagos but he completed his secondary education at the famous Remo Secondary School (RSS), Sagamu Remo, Ogun State.

He began his early life at Cable & Wireless Limited (which later transformed to NITEL) as Operation Clerk.

He then joined Claffin Chemicals as salesman and through a dint of hardwork rose to become Regional Sales Manager for Lagos and the then Midwestern Region.

It was his quest to provide employment for teeming Nigerian youths that led to the establishment of Face Millionaires Pool Limited with his bosom friend, Chief Solomon Ayoku in 1969. The enterprise has soon metamorphosed into a multi-billion Naira empire via the popular Premier Lotto, better known as Baba Ijebu.
