The best part is doing your job and getting paid for it and the worst part is when we work with artists and talents who either don’t pay and or lie about the quality of service you deliver to avoid payment and those who fail to fulfil contracts and sometimes being victim of betrayal by some cockroaches in industry
A little about you?
Mustapha Adams Oyeyemi, I was born on the 5th July 1980 and I have always reached for the stars. I attribute my inspiration to the encouragement of my immediate close knit family consisting of my parents, three elder brothers, three younger brothers and two younger sisters.
From when I was about 4 years old I attending ARMY Children School, 44 barrack in Kaduna State to Offa Grammar School in Kwara state, and later completed my secondary school education in Ansar-u-deen Islamic high School, Ipee also in Kwara state Nigeria, due to my brilliant and excellent contribution to all social activities in my school, I was the school social prefect. It was obvious I was destined for showbiz.
Education is an important part of our cultural upbringing, we are encouraged to specialise and study in wholesome subjects and I am thankful that I went to Federal polytechnic for my ND, and I graduated from Federal University of technology Minna, Niger state with a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science in 2008.
