Adesokan lived up to his reputation this afternoon as he broke countryman Ruel Ishaku's Paralympic record of 169kg from Beijing 2008 by three kilos in his first lift.
The Ibadan-born athlete did not stop there as, roared on by the crowd, he broke his own world record with a lift of 178kg in just his second attempt.
That record only lasted a matter of minutes, though, as Adesokan went on to lift 180kg - almost four times his own bodyweight - to take gold in style.
'I feel overjoyed,' he said. 'I went through a lot of training. I have been training for two months in Korea.
'Once I went through that training, there was no way I was going to fail.
'I can definitely lift more. It is a lot but what I usually lift in training is more than this, like 192kg.'
Adesokan was joined on the podium by Russia's Vladimir Balynetc, who won silver with a lift of 170kg, while Taha Abdelmagid of Egypt took bronze with 165kg.
The other star of the show was Turkey's Nazmiye Muslu, who claimed gold in the women's -40kg category.
'I am very, very happy about what I have done,' said Muslu, who finished ahead of China's Cui Zhe.
'I haven't slept for two days leading up to this. It is has been a very hard discipline for me these last two years.
'I have been working very hard to do well and won my medal for both myself and Turkey.
'I knew I was going to win the medal before I even got here, though. I was mentally prepared for it.'
