About Me

I am a graphic designer and creative in bringing up new initiatives. I do printing and book publication works, car wrapping, t-shirt embroidery printing works and I also have designed a customized wooden wall clock which I sell to my customers. I started this business from my bedroom and now I have a shop. I get a lot of jobs but mostly I have to pre-finance. That is, buy wood and board and construct it before customers will patronize. This is mostly a challenge since I do not have funds readily available to do that, hence loosing most of such jobs. It is in this light that I am appealing to the Zidisha community to help me boost my business so that I can also employ workers, get some money to cater for my kids education, expand the business and employ workers and reduce unemployment.

I am a single parent with two kids. A boy and a girl. That is, Kingsford and Emily. Kingsford wants to be a doctor in future. He likes demonstrating this by noticing when any of us are ill and taken care of who regular we should take our medications. Emily also wants to be a lawyer. She likes asking a lot of questions and would not stop until she gets the right answer she needs. She's not afraid to demand for what is hers and for Kingsford. Interestingly, I already call her lawyer and she likes it. These kids are the reason for my being alive. This is because when life became very tough for me. No food to feed my kids. No money to buy clothes and pay their school fees, I tried to commit suicide 3 times. Each time I did, it was Kingsford and Emily whose pictures came on my mind to consider their future and how helpless and vulnerable they will become if I took such stupid decision. So right now, they are everything to me. And I pray that Zidisha community will help me boost my business and take care of my kids to realise their dreams. I would be very grateful to my lenders and God will truly bless them all. for me and my kids.

I particular like music. I play Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboards, and also teaches music. I am the music director of my church. My love for music is extra-ordinary, and I'm never going to stop doing music.
