MCM: TECH WIZ, FISAYO

Hello everyone! If you're like me, you're probably wondering where the weekend went? I mean, it was just Friday yesterday. Anyway, another Monday is upon us and I come bearing good news ;) We are flipping the script a little today with our MCM who is a brand strategist and a tech reviewer. His name is Fisayo Fosudo. I'd describe my interview with him as brilliant and interesting! (It's ironic how he asked me at the end if he wasn't too boring LOL) Enjoy!

Fisayo Fosudo

1)      You have a YouTube channel where you talk about tech inclined topics; why that niche?

FISAYO: Tech is a very fast evolving niche and it's surely going to shape our future in many ways. I started developing passion for this since I started out as a graphic designer and a lot of design/art work has moved beyond pencils and sketch books to tablets and styli. I'm focused on tech (consumer tech specifically) because it's the closest/most accessible base to everyone and I really look forward to influencing a larger percentage of consumer tech purchase decisions in Africa and beyond.


2)  What's the most valuable lesson you've learnt from having a YouTube channel? 

FISAYO: Quality matters! Here's my not so short explanation for this: before I started uploading YouTube videos, I watched a ton of videos. I'm the kind of buyer that watches like 20 video reviews and read 100 blog posts about a product before I spend my money. 9/10 times a quality review video helps me make my decision. It was this reason I decided to invest almost $6,000 from my savings in production gear to create quality and thoughtful content. I'm still just starting out so I have a long way to go.


3) What's your typical day like?

FISAYO:  Lol, I don't have a typical day. Everyday is a different creation of it's own. However, every day starts with a prayer and then listening to a lot of House/EDM music while creating graphic design concepts or reading a book.

4) Tell us one thing you'll really like to do but haven't done yet?

FISAYO: I'll really like to create beautiful Cinematic travel videos (or memories) like Jordan Taylor Wright and Sam Kolder. These guys really inspire me a lot and I look forward to perfecting my skills to this point and beyond. As a side project, I also enjoy tinkering with creating EDM music too with FL Studio. 



5)  It's Monday, tell us some people you currently look up to and why? 

FISAYO: Apart from the aforementioned, I really look up to Marques Brownlee (MKBHD). He's also a tech reviewer and is the best at what he does.

I hope I wasn't too boring 😂


Stay Inspired.

Wednesday

#WinWednesday Don't complain... Champion!

I am sitting here enjoying this delicious plate of firewood jollof rice and just having a good productive day so far. I am however on a 'please subscribe to my youtube channel' spree at the moment as i need to hit 1000 subscribers to be able to make a particular target of mine so two things from that.

1. Can you do me a quick favour and head on over to my channel to subscribe?
2. Lesson learnt! Because of the way youtube is, we tend to promote our videos but not really push for that subscription but subscription is very important.
3. It did give me a great opportunity to check out my videos and i thought to s.h.a.r.e this one with you.



WCW: THE DOCTORPRENEUR

Hi everyone! What's up?
It's another beautiful Wednesday. I was unavoidably off for a week ;( so I'm making it up to you with our WCW today :)
She's a doctor and an entrepreneur ( short form- Doctorpreneur!) She runs four businesses - Hair by Dedun, Deduns cakes, Dedun cooks and belle artistry by Dedun. She is also a motivational speaker; how amazing! So without further ado,it's Dr. Dedun Oluwo.
Enjoy!



1) What has helped you the most in balancing all your businesses?
Valuing my time and effort. I place maximum value on everything I do so I can get the best result. This showed in my businesses and in turn pushed me to make sure I focus and eventually the balance found it's way.

2) Tell us something that makes you happy and something that pisses you off?
Being appreciated makes me happy and being taken for granted pisses me off.

3)  If you could give everyone in the world something, what would it be?
My time and me sowing a seed in their lives one way or the other.



4) What inspires you?
My goals inspire me. With them in sight, I have no excuse than to push on and achieve them.

Number one has to be my mum, she's everything I aspire to be and more.

Mo Abudu, Love her. I remember her from her beginning days on Moments with Mo and she has built an empire for herself now. I want to do that, build from where I am at the moment.

#ProductLaunch That Limited Edition Camon CX phone that got me googling Manchester City...




The sun is out! Hope you are enjoying some sunshine where you are?
After last weekend's rain in Lagos that got people swimming, had cars submerged, one guy kayaking, and even allegedly, crocodiles popping by, i bet we love the sun now and never want it gone!

Doing a giveaway today via Instagram and Twitter courtesy Tecno Mobile NG and i wanted to s.h.a.r.e the news with you.

So on Thursday, i was invited for the launch of the new Tecno phone, Camon CX Manchester City Limited Edition.

It is one of the series of TECNO Camon series; best known for their premium camera upgrades and pocket friendly price tag. This one, the Camon CX Manchester City Limited Edition features the City blue color and includes the official crest on the reverse.

Other features include the dual cameras hosting 4-in-1 light denoising technology (makes the signal-to-noise (SNR) capacity 1.7 times better than the average smartphone) and an incredible capacity to shoot beautiful, stunning photography in low-light. Then there is the state-of-the-art technology resulting in selfies that are thirty percent brighter than selfies from average smartphones.

There are also perks outside the phone as customers who unbox the new phone will enjoy customized gift packs including a city branded selfie stick, water bottle and speakers.



Only 200 units will be available in Nigeria, and only at Slot because of the exclusive sales agreement with SLOT outlets where only SLOT will distribute the Camon CX Manchester City Limited Edition phones nationwide.

BUT i asked if we could give special gifts and some phones away and they said yes so YASS!

You could win this!

#PinkFootball I can't believe we have to say goodbye to Rooney!

Okay ladies, that time has come. The time to say hello, goodbye and either 'phew you are still here' or 'grrr you are still here???".

For me, this has been pretty okay with my only indignation coming earlier on when i heard Zlatan would leave United.. That made me sad because i feel his season at Manchester United showed him to be a leader.



Then i got hopeful when i thought Antoine Griezmann was coming over. He is so cute. And yes, that is why i wanted him to come. I love football for footballing reasons but please, i love football for beautiful people reasons. And Antoine is beautiful.

Anyhoo, it seemed the transfer season would go without my shedding tears but no such luck. Wayne Rooney, went back home.



It is weird for me to think of Rooney's home as anywhere other than Manchester United but before the laurels and the medals, Rooney was an Everton kid. And now he has gone back. The club and the fans are so happy, and on paper, it makes sense for all parties concerned. He gets a place where he can shine as he plays out his retirement, Manchester United lets go of a legend who may not have got any more playing time if he had stayed, and Everton gets a player of his calibre with all the prestige, respect and experience he brings

The only one losing is us the fans who love Rooney. I can't take seeing him in blue, and yet i am not mad at anyone. Just sad.

But bye bye Rooney, thanks for the memories, and much love and respect always.

When one door closes (or one player leaves), another opens (a new player comes in).

Hey Lukaku, what's good?!


Monday

MCM: AKAH NNANI IS TAKING OVER

Hi everyone. Happy new week. I SMELL FINE BOYS THIS MORNING. LOL. Oh we have one as our MCM today. He's an actor, vlogger and presenter. It's Akah Nnani. My interview with him- I'd say it was a breath of fresh air. Enjoy






Hi Akah!

1)      Describe your life in three words
 God. Good friends. Loyalty.

2)      Your YouTube Channel has received so much traction over time, what would you say has helped you in particular, to grow on Youtube?
I think the singular factor has been consistency and also honesty. I can be brutally honest as I share my opinions on Akah Bants. Also, Akah Bants makes people happy. People enjoy it.


3)      You’ve acted in several films including EL’s ‘On the Real.’ Why acting? And what do you like most about it?
I was an actor before even being a vlogger. Acting for me is just the beat way of stretching myself and my art. It gives me the opportunity to tell stories with my body and my mind. It takes me and my audience to a different world; the thrill of it all and the challenge I face most times in getting it right is oh so addictive.

4)      Do you have any weird fetishes?
Lmao! Nope. My fetish is absolutely not weird, and it is definitely not for public knowledge.



5)      What advice will you give your child about life?
Search God and Find yourself.

Thank you.

Stay inspired!

#Beauty Glad i finally got to use my purple LMC lipstick!

Ever had something that you like but never know how to use?

For me, it was the purple lipstick i got from LMC Cosmetics.

The owner had come on my show to give out some quick make up tips (getting ready in a jiffy) and she was sweet enough to give two lipsticks and two lipstains from the collection for my personal use.

Well i had used the others (till i finished one), the purple one i had always been too shy to use.

Now i am in no way a make up guru and i leave face beating to the professionals so when i do my own make up, i play safe. Pink, brown, that's my safe place.

So how lucky was i that after getting styled for hosting duties for Women in Journalism 2017, Modupe of Makeupby Mogizzie looked at my lipstick collection (i have a cold sore so we chose not to use any of hers), and without being prompted, chose the purple!

Here it is, complete look!. Do you like?
