Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It was definitely NOT a smooth road. It was a lot of discouragements from friends, affiliates, and even family. With my mom being super religious when she hears entertainment she thinks of “nightlife” which connects to smoking and drinking which she’s against. But I want to show her one can still be successful and clean in this industry.
I also have a Nigerian background so the typical expectations are lawyer, doctor, nurse, etc so the entertainment route is like an opposite choose of career compared to others so that definitely adds pressure to go hard and prove it’s still success to be found within the industry.

What separates us from others is that other entertainment companies don’t start from the leadership and ideas of today’s youth. The diversity of our company is outstanding and unique compared to your average entertainment company. We recently launched an informative platform “Let’s Think Big” which centers around educating youth on business and entrepreneurship importance as well as giving students access to keys and knowledge needed to succeed in the entertainment industry. We just held our first panel at Morgan State University with Stokey Cannaday (Baltimore Mayor elect) , AllHomage from EAT, radio host Raven Paris and others. On a Friday evening the theatre was packed out for information! It was great! Over 200+ students came out to receive information and learn.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I feel like my dedication and my open-mindedness is most important to my success. If I didn’t believe in the company so much, no one else would. That’s key. If you don’t believe in yourself nobody else will because YOU DONT! And I love to improve my skillsets and abilities so I’m always open to try to learn new things instead of settling at one skill set.
