Let’s move over to the questions. Shall we? (Inserts a smiling emoji)
There is this lovely and emotional video on your feed on Instagram of you wishing you dad a happy father’s day. You mentioned he was very instrumental in bringing out the creative side of you while growing up. In what unique ways did he do this?
My dad was truly supportive of my creative side. He didn’t fully understand it but he supported it whilst telling me to have a fall back option of course just as any African dad would. My earliest memories of him would be driving me up to Crafties, one of the foremost craft shops in Lagos and i would shop for all the craft materials i needed.'My dad was truly supportive of my creative side.

Are there other ways you enrich yourself with ideas like google and YouTube or they all come naturally?
To be honest, i think no matter what talent or skill you have naturally, you have to hone it. Yes i constantly work on my craft by googling 24/7. No one is born knowing anything. We are sponges absorbing things as we go.
You mentioned in your bio you left journalism to work on your former brand DIYDose. Are there any silent regrets?
No regrets at all. That was a phase in my life and i learnt a lot from that experience but it was certainly time to move on and follow what set my heart on fire.
Why did you re-brand?
There are so many benefits to a personal brand and i wanted the freedom to pursue other interests outside of DIY.
What should we expect and we’ll still get DIY hacks right?
Oh yes and more!
Were you ever told by people that what you are doing is irrelevant? If yes, what and how did you overcome the negativity and ignore the naysayers? This will help someone reading this right now that wants to start that dream but is hesitating because of people’s opinions.
My hobby wasn’t even something i was proud to admit i had among my journalist colleagues so yes i felt it was irrelevant in light of the dreams others had; reporting in war zones and breaking a big story but i quickly learnt that what i do is not less important but it definitely took me a while to own that.'My hobby wasn't even something i was proud to admit i had among my journalist colleagues so yes i felt it was irrelevant in light of the dreams others had; reporting in war zones and breaking a big story but i quickly learnt that what… Click To Tweet
