The content specialist and public relations consultant added that although it hasn’t been easy working with the likes of Chioma Okereke, DJ Baddo and LAX among others, his doggedness and humility paved the way to success for him.
“I remember how I started my career as a media practitioner. It was really a tough decision to make at the time because there were many discouraging activities out there, and discouragement from people already practicing.

In order to achieve great results when dealing with celebrities, humility and passion is key, “ he said.
