You probably heard that nothing worthwhile comes easy, as an entrepreneur experience has taught me that. I started my photography journey a few years ago, Yes with those cameras, back in the days of film photography. It was hard being a rookie with a film or analog camera. I remember vividly how I lost tons of money using the same setting for outdoor shoot and shooting with the same setting indoor. There was no LCD to ‘Chimp’ (Chimping is a colloquial term used in digital photography to describe the habit

Together with my friend and CEO of Gr8an, Akinlabi Akinbulumo aka. Mr Phisha, we recently launched The Octagon – a platform aimed at cataloguing insightful conversations between people involved in business or running high impact projects.

These conversations are first held within closed rooms and then

She spent most of her life playing professional polo for brands, having played in over 22 cities. She returned to Nigeria in 2010, where her tech adventure began after she designed and implemented the bar code file tracking system for the Nigerian Ministry of Federal

I had a rather interesting situation today that made me think long and hard about how much people lose out on things due to bad behavior (there’s nothing else to call it really), without realizing why. It’s easy to think that you don’t need anyone and that you’ve got life covered, but I always tell people that tables turn in seconds. Life is very unpredictable – we can hope and pray but we cannot control every thing that happens in our lives, and when you understand this, you learn to

Bolaji Kekere Ekun is a Visual Content Producer, Film maker, Rapper (yes! yes!), and all round brilliant guy, with a passion for promoting Urban and African Culture and Lifestyle through whatever content he creates. I have been friends with BJ Kex (as I call him) for about 9 years now, and he’s one of the people whose work I respect – primarily in terms of authenticity. Bolaji continues to produce work that disrupts the creative space, and he’s not afraid to go out of his comfort zone to make magic

I’m very proud of a lot of my friends. I’m SUPER proud of Data. She’s one of the few people that followed her dreams, against all odds.

She is that disciplined friend that keeps sharpening their talent – getting better and better by the year.
