1. Hello Ade, thanks for being part of this month’s Lifestyle Scoop. You are a fashion model, a video director, media content creator, a business owner and have worked for amazing celebrities like Tiwa Savage, Timini Egbuson, Iyanya etc. How would you describe your digital creation journey so far?
The journey has been amazing, from my first gig to working with a music label as the official media personnel. Well, there has been ups and downs, and many lessons have been learnt.
2. What was your experience working with some of these notable celebrities? Was there any point you felt intimidated by their presence?
One similar trait of working with any celebrity is their organization and discipline, it’s money-oriented always, and of course, I was a bit intimidated working with a few of them at the first meeting, but with time both parties loosen up and you end up laughing and sharing so many experiences.
3. Good to hear. So what’s a typical day like for you?
Well, it depends on who I spend my day with, but if I’m alone I’d pray, listen to music, watch movies, eat and write out content.
4. How would you describe your style and what/who inspires your sense of style?
I don’t think I have a personal style yet, but I would say that I’m a fan of hypebeast
5. Still on fashion, what fashion colours would you tell every guy not to have in his wardrobe? *smiles*
Honestly, I can’t say because fashion is ever-growing and you can’t say don’t wear this or that
6. Hmmm, interesting. Reebok or Nike?
7. You own an online shoe store called ‘Sneakers Hub’. What major challenge have you faced running a business?
Customer trust and the delivery process can be exhausting at times.
8. Chilling with the girls or chilling with the boys? And why the choice?

13. What travel essentials do you recommend every guy should have in his travelling bag?
Phone, a phone charger, passport, and toiletries.
14. What is the most challenging creative project you’ve worked on? And what made it so challenging?
Hmm, that should be when I was trying to put together a few creatives to make a short film. The timing and negligence were a real challenge.
