As a product builder ↗️, I have built a lot of products to solve either my own problems or the problems of others over the last 3 years. The most notable of them was Cralocs — featured on ProductHunt #5. Cralocs was an online film location rental platform, you can think of it as the Airbnb for Film Locations. …


Saying that the year 2020 has been very very crazy is an understatement. However, in the midst of all these, there are lots of things that happened to me personally which I love to share — we've taken in lots of bad stuff this year, so I am just going to focus on the positives.

In Nigeria, if a person in a position of authority tells you that something isn’t possible, trust me, they are most likely lying to you. EVERYTHING and ANYTHING is possible in Nigeria, it is just that you are not worth the effort.

A person in a position of authority is anyone whose input is needed at a particular point in time. This person, need not to be at the top e.g. the Personal Assistant to the Minister of Petroleum, is a person of authority in the face of on oil marketer looking for a contract, an immigration officer irrespective of…

This is another episode of my yearly review which I started last year, inspired by the wonderful Ire Aderinokun.

As I did last year, I am going to writing about the wonderful stuffs I got to do last year and some of the L’s I took in 2019. This is ranging from the book I read, to the skills I learnt, activities and the new things I did in 2018 etc. This is my own little way of bragging, looking back and patting myself in the back for a wonderful year.

Books

Maybe before I was born, Nigeria was great but not in my almost two decades have I seen a working Nigeria.
