“I’m Nigerian and born and raised in New York”
“People were under the assumption I would be a product of my environment, it’s safe to say I’m not even close. Financially I’m comfortable and I’m in my early thirties. From 9-5 I work in a fast paced office environment and after dark, I have a real passion for music. I’m a multi instrumentalist, but really enjoy playing piano the most. I’m one for the people. I always say our purpose is bigger than us, so if we are only helping ourselves we are not walking in purpose.”
Is there anything you’d like to say to black women?
Firstly I love black women. Our history is the very thing that makes you beautiful from the inside out, that is why your strength is so authentic. Everything about you is great but it starts with you truly knowing and believing that in the deepest parts of your soul. With that said, stay true to yourself, don’t change who you really are. Lastly, all men are not the same great guys do exist; we are just not perfect men.
