Wazobia/cool is about the biggest radio stations in Abuja, I came in through BigMo and WillyWilly and it has been very instrumental to my career becus is like a market place that grants u the privilege to display what you have to offer and people can likely patronize you from there as God bless.

Abuja entertainment is very promising because is the federal capital territory and as such they is platform for every gifted person no matter where u r from as far as you are good

Which other field do you admire or will some day create a niche?
For a 2nd field I will admire if I am giving the chance, I will like to state here that I love the corporate field and things that can really task the brain as far as am not adamately sitting in one place and doing nothing.

How do you play a role in helping Abuja artist with your platform?
For Abuja Artist - am also upcoming so we all need help but if there is any help I get before any other artist am sure they can testify to the fact that I will always distribute and share

My advice is that we should all learn to work harder on this job. It is not enough to be talented but developing the talent and ourselves is very important?

‎By God's Grace, I see myself fulfilling the will of God. - As one of African's most wanted and most interesting MC/Comedian. Doing very well in movies, TV/Radio Shows and greatly trending my own show over the world..
