Your Brand in Three Words… Classic, innovative, Fun
The Part of My Job I Enjoy The Most… Meeting new people that appreciate my work and are decisive and flexible in terms of making a decision, it makes my work much easier and fun. Overtime, some who I have met turned to friends and are part of my success story.
My Biggest Accomplishment to Date… Turning my little apartment into a workstation, I couldn’t be happier. That step got me here today and I totally will never forget how it all started.
The Best Vendor you’ve worked with… Quddi Mufeed, popularly known as “Eyes of Insanity Photography”. He is humble, diligent and very professional.
One Quality Every Nigerian Wedding Vendor Must Have and Why? There are so many qualities amongst which ‘Humility’ is the most important. A humble soul reaches the heart of his clients, sees fault and humbly accepts and takes correction where necessary.
In my Spare Time, I spend time with my family; remember the saying- Family is everything. I also love to dance whenever I have the opportunity to, so remember to invite me for your parties, hehhehe.

Call or Text? Text. I always forget to call, that has been a problem, my close friends know I’m terrible with that, but I always endeavor to reply text, which I see as more efficient because people respond quicker.
Cook or Be Cooked For… Of course, be cooked for, as long as the sodium chloride does not overshadow the good taste lol in other words, the chef should be a good cook.
Favorite Food… Rice ooo!!! no matter how it is being prepared, boiled, fried, steamed, pounded lol
