My Brand in Three Words… Creative, Innovative and Fun
The Part of My Job I Enjoy Most… Being behind the bar with my cocktail shaker and getting to meet new people especially other event vendors.
Best Vendor I have Worked With… Worked with quite a few vendors and they have all being amazing but I still revere Brad_E Events because of her humility, dedication and creativity.
Qualities Every Nigerian Vendor Must Possess: Patience, Professionalism and Uniqueness. These three go hand-in-hand and one cannot do without the other. Patience because you deal with different individuals on a daily basis; professionalism and uniqueness because they help you stand out every step of the way.
In my spare time, I play scrabble, read novels and of course re-create new cocktails

Call or Text… Both depending on my mood and the reason
