Q1: Why did you choose to study at LCU?
I did not choose Lead City University. I was offered a scholarship to study there and I ended up loving the school. I am so proud to be a graduate of such a great University.
Q2: What is your favourite memory of LCU; a class, a lecturer, an activity or an experience?
I have so many wonderful memories of Lead City and I often wish I could go back over them again, like my memories of the services and other events at the chapel, some lectures that I really enjoyed and not to forget the amazing lecturers. Then the entrepreneurship and professional qualifications courses, one of which is the Photography course I took in 200 Level. My love for photography was nurtured in that entrepreneurship class and that is why I am a professional photographer today.
Q3: What have you done since graduating from LCU?
Well, there was my NYSC, after which I worked with Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state;I also worked with tRoG World Media and the former CBN Deputy Governor, Chief Adebayo Adelabu.
Q4: What is your current job role? And what does it involve?
I am currently working as a professional photographer. I do studio photography, event photography and so on. I am currently the head of photography for tRoG World Media, an international media company. This year alone, I have been to two beautiful African countries, Ethiopia and Tanzania. I am also official photographer of Titan farms, Optimum drinks, Stone cafe and Shashi autos. I run the ‘Lead City Finest’ page on Instagram.
Q5: How did your education at LCU help you get to where you are now?
The knowledge gained at Lead City University truly prepares a person for self-reliance. I met new people and I discovered so many skills including the photography skills I use to make a living today. I employ 3 photographers and 3 videographers, so I am a job creator and an employer as well.
Q6: What advice would you give to prospective students of LCU?
My advice to prospective students is: Take the opportunity to study at Lead City University now! When I got my admission offer, I didn’t really know the value of what I was getting but now, looking back at who I have become today, and the opportunities still ahead of me, I am so grateful that I had good fortune of studying at Lead City. You will be too.
Q7: What advice would you give to LCU’s current students?
My advice to any student currently in Lead City University is that as you are studying for your degree, take the vocational skills training seriously too, so that when you graduate, you don’t need to look for a job; instead, you will be a job creator and jobs will look for you.

Working with Governor Seyi Makinde was certainly a proud moment; Working with Obi Cubana on Sageitude wine and being regarded amongst the foremost photographers in Nigeria
