Prior to 1980, pupils who completed their elementary school education in Ibeshe and its vicinity were being posted to Ikorodu township for their secondary school education. The then traditional ruler of Ibeshe, late Oba Adewamiri Ayokulehin Olaide then presented a proposal to the Lagos State Government at the time.

When the school was founded in 1980, the name was Ibeshe Community Grammar School, in line with late Lateef Kayode Jakande’s vision. In fact, the first graduating set in 1985, graduated under that name. Later, the late Oba Olaide, the then Olubeshe of IbesheLand who was instrumental to the founding of the school, pushed it to the government to rename the school.

He then proposed the name Keme Balogun College Ibese. The name is in memory and honour of Keme Addo Balogun, who was the founder of Ibeshe land. The school was split into junior and senior school in 2003 in line with the Lagos State new education policy. The junior and senior schools are then renamed Keme Balogun Junior College and Keme Balogun Senior College respectively.

The proposed scholarship scheme is in two parts: a part is in memory and honour of the late Oba Adewamiri Ayokulehin Olaide, and the second part is a way to give back to his alma mater by Prince Kayode Emmanuel Olaide, who is an alumnus of the school after 30 years of graduating from the school. The main activities for the event are as follows:
